DESIGN

Welcome to Garden Lighting by Design,
we create garden lighting concepts that are tailored to you.



As Garden Lighting designers, we initially create a design of how best to light your garden with positions for each light, it's spec and the reason for it's choice. Backed up by a full kit list which is priced and ready to go.

CONSULTANCY

We work with you
to help give you the right knowledge at the right time.



With the leaps in technology, we now do most of our consultancy design remotely from video and commentary creating a quick and efficient service, which offers greater value for money for the customer, whilst allowing us to impart our knowledge and years of experience much further afield.

Let's talk about your new project

1How long does it take to install garden lighting?
The simple answer to this is: if done well longer than you assume as it is very labour intensive. With obviously each job being subject to the variables you would assume of size of property and number of lights/equipment required that directly impacts on the time. Read more
2Should the cables be buried in your garden?
Where on display yes the cables should be buried and down to an 18 inch depth with caution tape half way up the trench as a warning to would be diggers. However cables can be on the surface and where they cannot be seen and depth maybe impeded by continuous route systems such as hedge lines they can be strategically threaded down them on the surface. Shallow burying should not occur on 230v armour cable at all and although you can on 12v cable it will only just lead to excessive damage to cable runs over time.
We also offer a laminated wiring diagram to clients highlighting where all cables 230v and 12v are either buried or run, as well as locations of transformers and drivers for future ease of maintenance.
3Will your installation come with an electrical certification?
Yes all our installations are Part P certified and tested and our installed in line with the current regulations.
4Can we install it ourselves?
You can and some people do, but we would always recommend that you do it in line with a certified/qualified electrician. However that may not be enough as many electricians don't have enough experience with the outdoors, highlighted by the number of poorest installed systems we have now had to go out and replace. Here more often than not they have chosen poor quality cheap equipment, not located things in the best positions and not respected water in their overall design of the system.
