Another Day In The Life Of A Garden Lighting Designer

Posted by:

As we mentioned in our last post – no two days are ever the same and today will prove this as we install lighting around a client’s lake.

New Garden Lighting Project!

We have just finished a fantastic and very challenging garden lighting project for some very special clients in Oxford.

They have the most beautiful garden (I would suggest one of Oxfords best kept garden secrets!) with numerous summer houses, a lovely swimming pool, a mini cottage, a dining pod, a fun railway station, a rockery with pools, a canopied barbeque area, a gorgeous sweeping lawn, numerous seating areas and colourful flowers and roses in abundance! All set in over two acres – it really is a beautiful labour of love.
