Putting your designs in the spotlight

As a garden designer, you’ll have a vision and a passion for your client’s outdoor space. It is likely lighting will feature in your designs but having an outdoor lighting specialist involved can significantly enhance the whole process and end result.

We can see how key features can be best illuminated and set off. We’ll look at the perspective from inside the house and out, to ensure your design can be fully appreciated all day and all year round. We’ll find creative solutions to any practical issues, and keep you updated on latest lighting products and trends. And it’s likely we’ll have artistic and creative input to complement yours.

In 15 years of lighting gardens, we have worked with all sorts of shapes, sizes and types of garden. We love working in partnership with designers, adding value, expertise, practical advice and support. We work with planting plans to bring out the best in your design. If your ideas are bold and ambitious, we can work with you to achieve them. If natural and subtle is what’s required, our expertise in positioning will make the garden visible but the lights invisible.

If you would like some input into your garden design project from outdoor lighting specialists, contact us now.

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.
