Buyer's Guide

Creative garden lighting design and planning a garden lighting system is about understanding and using lighting ideas and effects in the garden – a stunning night-time garden without seeing the lights by night, and if possible by day as well. Before making your garden lighting plan, understand how lighting ideas can be applied in your garden, decide your garden lighting effects - then we can help you make your choice of garden lights and plan your garden lighting system.


Good garden lighting depends upon correct positioning of garden lights, and selecting the correct lamp (bulb) type, wattage and coverage or beam angle. Then move on to choosing the garden lights that will house the lamps (bulbs) in the right way to do their job properly and reliably. Except where they are chosen specifically to make a design statement, outdoor lights should be hidden or camouflaged wherever possible, so look for ones that can be recessed, small or in a finish that blends in with the surroundings.
