What are the benefits of bringing light to your garden?

  • Good lighting extends the length of time clients can spend in their garden - combined with heating solutions so that they can relax comfortably and reap the return on investment for at least 10 months out of 12.  This would be a good boost to property value.
  • Lighting enables us appreciate the garden on cold winter nights by lighting it up and creating a winter wonderland to enjoy from the warmth of the indoors!
  • Low level lighting helps to illuminate visiting night-time wildlife.
  • It is cheaper (and more attractive) to install lighting whilst landscaping rather than as an afterthought.
  • Inventive lighting brings a whole new perspective to water features.
  • Well-lit properties create a warm and impressive welcome.
  • Lighting enables enhancement of key features in a landscape and draws the eye away from more practical areas of a garden.
