When you are designing a garden lighting is an important feature to consider. Not only will well positioned lighting show off your garden at night but also enable you to enjoy it well after the sun has gone down. Also in the winter you can still look out and enjoy your garden when the short days arrive
Opposite are two examples of how lighting can make something come to life at night. The top photos show a seating area with a timber wall to provide privacy and shelter. Along the bottom of the timber wall we installed spot lights. At night these provide lighting to enable the owners to continue to use this space. The photos below that show how adding lighting to water feature can not only illuminate a seating area but also add to an existing feature.
We recently created a unique feature using a gabion filled with coloured glass and placing a light behind it. See the picture on the gabion page. This created a stunning feature.
You can have many types of lighting, including colour changing ones that are operated with a remote control. I would however advise that you get a qualified electrician to fit them. We ensure that our lighting is fitted by an electrician that is registered with NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting).
Furthermore we ensure that they provide our clients with a Part P Certificate. Part P forms part of the Building Regulations and the requirement is that "reasonable provision shall be made in the design and installation of electrical installations in order to protect persons operating, maintaining or altering the installations from fire or injury.”
This will assist should you decide to sell your home as you can provide the certificate to your solicitor to prove that all works comply with building regulations.
A qualified electrician who is registered with NICEIC is used for electrial work required with all lighting. A Part P (Building Control) form will be given to prove the work is carried out to the correct standard.
