    So I forgot that the Max spread mini path light I chose (I bought four) over its taller version only has a 4 ft lead wire option. All my other fixtures have 25 ft leads. I believe the solution is to add enough wire to each path light so that they are the same length as all the other fixtures on the hub to which I connect them? If so, is it sensible to make these splices with direct burial hubs or is there a better approach? Also, is it necessary that the lengths of the home run wires from each of my hubs (indicated by the stars on my photo) leading to the transformer (big yellow star on left side of house) be equal? Finally, instead of a separate home run from each hub, could I bring power to the lights on the right side (if you're facing the house) of the path by running a wire between the two hubs or would this lead to voltage drop issues?
