Adding lighting to your garden

posted in: Garden Design | 0

Garden lighting adds an extra dimension to the enjoyment of your garden.

During the summer months and well into autumn, your time spent outside can extend well into the dusk and beyond, as lighting enables you to not just see what you’re eating and where you’re stepping, but also creates a gentle atmospheric glow.

But there’s another time of year when garden lighting is really key and that is the long dark winter months. When it gets dark so early, we tend to focus on our indoor lives. Switch on garden lighting to pick out features and highlights structures and textures in your garden, giving you something to enjoy beyond the four walls you’ve been squeezed into. Suddenly a black emptiness is filled with items of wonder.

When designing lighting for gardens, we consider so many aspects, from functionality and creating atmosphere, longevity and maintenance, switching and zones, wattage, lumieres and voltage, to wildlife and dark skies.
