Is Modern Garden Lighting Intrusive?

Posted by:

You may be concerned that having garden lights may cause an annoyance for your neighbors. However, obtrusive light only occurs when it is badly designed and incorrectly installed.

Winter Garden Lighting

Not only this, there would ...

Rockery Project

Posted by:

For a recent rockery project we used a 12v lighting system which features Bronze Spot and Pagoda lights.

The lights themselves are manufactured from heavy cast bronze and then chemically treated to give a natural looking aged bronze finish.

We used Bronze spotlights to enhance and illuminate the beautiful red coloured small trees either side of the pond pools and Pagoda lights (mushroom shaped down lighters) to highlight plants and foliage above.

The 12v system was chosen as it is very safe to ...
