Opinions appreciated on this one.
  1. Garden in approximately a square, 20 metres pr side
  2. The board is under the stairs and I'll run a 6aRCD protected feed behind the units to the rear wall and into the garden; everything outside in Schneider boxes filled with Ray Tech Gel
  3. Cable will be either Hi Tuff or SWA if they want it buried.
  4. Lights are mostly spike lights connected in the Schneiders in two circuits switched at the kitchen
My query is, which would be the better connection/switching? Three plate at the individual Schneiders or take the live across the switches in a 37mm box? Can't find anything in the big blue book discounting one system so - is there any advantage to either; apart from the space required at the wall switch?

If they aren’t attached to the fabric of the building then you need a double pole switch so would be best to feed the switch.
 
this sounds like an addition to an existing property, surely you would be better with a wireless option? Save on the damage.

Not doing sparkle work anymore, but recently put some lighting in my rear garden. Used swa to feed local wiska boxes. Switch position in house, for switched luminaries and live feeds for some Philips Hue lights, and future proof.
DP isolation switch for whole lot.
