Engineers, in my experience, are pretty flexible as to where you want things to go. They will usually run up the front grass if you have any (or under graveL) and often use a green bit of hose pipe. They use bushes too if possible. And then they run it to the outside of your home, put a brown box on the outside with all the connection in and then the usual grey junction/connection box on the inside and if you have a phone line they are pretty near together.
They could run it along the bottom of the wall if allowed. It depends where the connection is in the pavement.
