Putting your designs in the spotlight.

Your Garden

Create a sensation with illumination.

Your home, your garden, and if you’re a garden designer or landscaper, your project, is likely to mean the world to you. You’ll have put effort and investment into making it the perfect outdoor space, whatever its purpose, from family fun, entertaining to relaxing or even working. What we do, is bring it all to life.

And we do it so well, that a garden we recently lit won a prestigious 2018 BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries) award. We have also used our skills at the Chelsea and Hampton Court flower shows on more than one occasion. We can highlight and enhance key features. Show plants and flowers off in their best light. Create the atmosphere and feel you’re looking for. And enable your outdoor space to be enjoyed all day and all year. Outdoor lighting is both and art and a skill. For the most stunning visual effects, you’ll need qualified electricians who have creative vision but also the skills to install outdoor lighting safety and effectively and have knowledge of the best quality products and latest lighting design trends. At Light Your Garden we specialise only in outdoor and garden lighting, working closely with homeowners, garden designers and landscapers, to make sure we get it right every time.

If you think garden lighting is simple,
let us enlighten you…

It can be simple. It can be complex.

It depends entirely on the purpose of the garden, the layout, the features and the client or designer’s vision. The difference between indoor and outdoor lighting is that it’s not about the lights themselves. It’s about what you want to light and how best to achieve it.

Positioning, angling, hiding, choosing the right products are all key to the final subtle but stunning effect. We can add just one light to create a subtle moonlight effect. We can make the water trickling from a water feature sparkle or change colour. We can create a party venue, right there in a garden. We can illuminate and enhance your flowers and plants which may be your pride and joy. We can position lights strategically to be invisible, and yet achieve breath-taking effects.

As experts in outdoor lighting, we can bring a touch of magic to your property.

I’m John Doyle

A qualified electrician, I had my personal ‘lightbulb’ moment 15 years ago. In lighting a garden, I suddenly saw the incredible impact I could make with creative and cleverly installed lights. I realised how integral the lighting was to setting off a stunning garden design and how poor or non-existent lights could let it down.

Since then, garden lighting has been my passion and my profession. I have found my practical skills as an electrician, combined with my talent for creativity and artistic interest, make me perfectly placed to complement the work of garden designers, landscapers and people investing in their gardens.

I remain fascinated by challenges and interesting briefs; gardens for socialising in, planting schemes that can be enhanced, the trend towards winter gardens and all year-round outdoor dining.

The potential for lighting a garden is huge, I can see it the minute I walk into a home. And it starts at the front door. Style and functionality are everything when it comes to any design and garden lighting is no different. When I advise on outdoor lighting - it will reflect your internal lighting, personality and preferences.

As I highlighted to a group of Garden Designers in a talk recently, the darker it is, the less light you need. This is because in contrast to total darkness, a tiny amount of light can create a vast amount of illumination. Light is there to create an illuminating effect, not draw attention to itself. Understanding this is one thing, but applying it is another, and that’s why garden lighting is such a delicate balance.

Carefully thought out, expertly and safely installed outdoor lighting solutions are what I live and breathe every day.
