From Day to Night

From Day to Night

Spaces that work for the whole family – from relaxing in the sun to relaxing with a cocktail when the sun sets.

Even when everyone else has disappeared indoors, you can make the most of your garden, day or night and all year round.

Set the mood when the sun goes down

Swop cushions and throws in the evening for a cosier more relaxed feel and change your lighting to suit - go fun and flirty with fairy lights or soft and cosy with candles.

Think of what style you want your garden to reflect and then accessorise to compliment the colours and textures. Transform your garden into a beautiful outside room - combine textured flagstones with walled areas, and perhaps even an outdoor fireplace, to create the perfect ‘snug spot’.

Lighting the Way

Creative use of garden lighting can extend your time in the evenings in your garden, as well as adding an alternate dimension to your garden.

Garden lighting can provide a different view from the daylight perspective, either for the last of the summer’s BBQs or as an alternative to closing the blinds on the cooler, damper evenings. Determine what you want the lighting to do when you start planning your exterior lighting scheme. Security, access, theatre and activity are the main functions.

Keep warm day or night

Make the most of your garden even in cool weather - day or night - with a fireplace or firepit.

Over the past few years, we have seen a surge of outdoor fireplaces and firepits in our gardens. The idea being to create a focal point which will allow us to spend more time in our garden and be as warm and comfortable as we would be inside the house.

Be safe, not sorry

Be clever with LED lighting around the entrance to your home - inset lights into steps and kerbing to highlight paths and to avoid trip hazards.

Let's not forget the driveway. Lights are an easy way to make a great first impression. Illuminate the drive up to your home and accentuate winding curves and also provide safety for visiting friends and family.
