Laying new yard - consideration for future electric vehicles

    We are putting down a yard in parents new build house and I was going to put in an underground duct from garage (where the power enters the property) out to the yard wall in front of where the cars park for when in future that electric cars are mandated. The intent of this is to ensure that we don't have to dig up the yard in order to put a charging cable across or have cables trailing across the yard to the vehicles.

    It is not a big job at this stage to do. Is this all that would be required at this stage - was looking at a 4" duct - can't see the cabling being an issue in it.
