Garden Lighting Tips

Lighting a garden is an art in itself and is personal to both taste and surroundings. Outdoor lighting is meant to bring your garden to life by accentuating its best features. Landscape lighting designers will agree that the most common design fault is over-illuminating your house and creating too much light contrast in the garden. Having spent many years installing garden lighting in South West London, we’d like to share some of our best landscape lighting tips and recommendations.

Landscape Lighting Design Techniques

The positioning of LED spotlights can bring your garden to life in a number of ways. You can wash trees in a warm glow by positioning lamps at the base, or place lamps behind a feature plant to create a night-time silhouette. Accent lighting is used to highlight focal points or features by angling uplights and downlights in strategic positions. We have embarked on many garden lighting design projects, but this project for a client based in Cobham was one of the largest and most ambitious – it’s worth a read for inspiration!
