I want to add an outlet on my front lawn, I installed a brick wall and want to install lights under the lip of the wall. I got a price of 825.00 to run it under ground and i cant afford it now so I went to lowes and got 14-2 OUTDOOR gray wiring, also got a GFI and weatherproof box and cover. My question is can i use raceway and come out of a hole from my garage and attached to another wall run along the outside wall to the lawn?

Yes you can but I would suggest using 1/2" PVC as the raceway
I've never heard of any raceway being approved for outdoor use
And I doubt it is rated for protection

There are very specific rules regarding installation, burial depth etc
The cover must be the newer in-use wet cover
Ummm PVC, RMC, Liquid Tight, etc...
