Having a nice garden space is usually the last thing people tick off on their to do list in their house but if the project involves landscaping the space then I can really recommend getting some lighting installed to give the design a new dimension.

There are a few ways to go about it but the most common is hard wiring the lights in to the garden and setting a timer though this must be done right to avoid water getting in the system and blowing the fuses.

The blue under tone is a different look and may not be to everyone’s taste but in this situation I think it works well. With the swimming pool enclosed by a stylish glass wall the garden has a very modern feel.

This roof top garden is not a huge space but the designer has made the most of it to create a welcoming space to perch. The lighting adds a warm feel to the long grasses and lengthens the social summer nights outside.

This layered garden is really just an aesthetic design but the combination of tall and short plants uplit make it beautiful.

Just a detail shot but it really gives a feel for the design of the garden and the up lighters pick out the detail of the wooden dividers.



This project shows the house and garden incorporated into one design and shot at night with the lighting effects the design is contemporary and modern. There is good use of concrete to mix with the warmth of wood and the flow around the space is seamless. An excelent use of the ground available from the architect

A clever use of planters and up lighters to make the most of the space with sofa and no hard landscaping. This is a great shot for inspiration to do for yourself on the cheap.
