Why do you need a local professional 'garden lighting' specialist to design and install your garden lights?

Decorative garden lighting can add a unique charm to your garden, enabling you to enjoy it all year round. Illuminating your garden or outdoor terrace makes it more usable and beautiful, and plays a vital security role.

Most outdoor and garden lighting cannot withstand adverse weather conditions unless it is installed correctly with proper measures in place to protect against moisture and rain.

Garden lighting specialists can recommend the right garden lighting solutions for you, based on your budget, your aesthetic desires and your security needs. They will often purchase the lighting for you after an initial consultation, and discuss with you exactly where you want it placed before overseeing the installation and performing tests to ensure all lights are set up correctly.

What do garden lighting designers near you do?

A lighting designer can ensure that the design and installation of your garden lights is well taken care of. Their responsibilities include:

  • Garden light installation and repair: A professional garden lighting design and installation specialist can install your garden lights securely, with adequate protection from the elements, using armour wired cable to plug it into the power supply. They will also repair broken lighting.
  • Design and planning: If you are landscaping your garden, a garden lighting and design specialist can come up with a garden lighting plan that encompasses your entire garden. This includes mapping out the position of each light, so that each one’s function serves your desired purpose. You might be envisioning decorative lights on paths and stairs, or more functional security PIR (passive infrared) motion-sensing lights. A specialist will help you with both.
  • Clearance of plants and shrubs: A garden lighting design specialist can help clear shrubs and weeds, to allow easy access and make your garden more attractive. If you have solar-powered lights, this can make them more effective.
