Shining a light on your workmanship

As a landscaper you have a design, a plan, a schedule and a timeline. As specialist outdoor lighting installers, we are under no illusion of how important flexibility and reliability are from the other trades working on the project.

Having spent 15 years lighting gardens, we’ve worked on hundreds of projects and with landscaping teams with great success. We work in genuine partnership, respecting the work you do, being there when you need us, not there when you don’t, and visiting the site as much as necessary to ensure a smooth process. We can work around challenging practical requirements and find solutions to problems.

But we’re more than a team of qualified electricians. Much more. We’re able to plan the lighting, adding creative input and ensuring your excellent work can shine. We’ll advise on lighting design trends and bring samples to your client to show what can be achieved. Our work will complement yours and the client will benefit from a garden that looks wonderful day and night, from inside the house as well as outside.

We’ll be an asset to your team, carrying out work which reflects well on you when the client sees their landscaping project come to life.

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.

It is attractive and adds to our sense of security. We have gone back to John for upgrades as our requirements have developed."
