Most folk think that garden lighting is only to guide us from the back door down to the bin store or maybe out to the garage – or that only the very biggest estates warrant any kind of exterior lighting. Today this is largely a myth – with the sophisticated schemes and easier installation, it is a fantastic way to extend the seasons and make more use of our very under appreciated outdoor space. I know many families who spend hundreds of pounds at a time on good looking patio furniture – beautiful cane and polyprop manufactured loungers, deck suites etc. and assume they’re only for the short summer bar-b-que season. Not so. With wiring in by a qualified installer, a range of uplighters and wall mounted lamps, the garden can take on a beauty of its own. Being able to stroll amongst the shrubs and trees in the evening is calming and very restful. Do try it!
