Tree Lights


Why should I have lights in my garden design?

If you are looking to landscape your garden don't forget to plan integrated lighting into your garden design. Garden lighting can help create both a stunning and relaxing space. Long summer evenings can be enjoyed after the sun has gone down and entertaining with friends can take an alfresco turn as the glow of your garden lights set the mood.

Outdoor lighting can be chosen for both aesthetics and safety. Lights placed either side of paths and steps can light up the way to areas of your gardens whilst also accentuating the elements of your garden design. Lighting up your garden will give you a totally different view of your outdoor space. As we always say, your garden should be seen as an extenstion of your inside space and by installing garden lights you are adding another dimension to your exterior area and living space.


How do I know which lights to choose?

Garden lighting design is all about choosing the correct lights to enhance features of your garden and not overpower them. If you are looking for garden lighting ideas then we have created a simple guide for you to take a look at some of the outdoor lighting that is available.

Elegant wall lights can light round a paved area, down a pathway or be fixed to a pergola to create an up and down lighting effect. Spot lights can be embedded in paving and be used to light up pathways and illuminate water features and sculptural planting.
