Installing remote zone

I am installing an irrigation system at my house and am unsure how to run the poly-pipe and valve wire. I will be renting a vibra-plow to pull polly pipe. Do I need pull two sets of pipe out to the box, one for the wire and one for water? Or, can I wrap the wire around the poly pipe and pull it?

Use the multi-stranded wire and duct tape the bejesus out of it to the end of the poly, put them both in the chinese finger, and pull them both at the same time.

Pros use 'irrigation cable' which has a tough polyethylene outer jacket, which will withstand being pulled by a plow. If you only have thermostat cable, the safest way to go is to use an extra pipe as a conduit for the wire.

So, wire like this: wrapped in duct tape should work fine?
