#1 – Light Up Your Pathways
Why not highlight your quaint pathway or paving stones with LED’s to really emphasise the design of your garden. As simple as aligning with current paving stone, you can weave your design around your walkways, illuminating the way and allowing people to explore your garden.
#2 – Flood Lights
No one wants to be left sitting in the dark. Exterior LED flood lights draw at least 80% less power than standard flood lights and bulkhead lights and with a life equal to at least 35 Halogen tubes, meaning replacing the bulb will be a thing of the past. Allowing you to save energy as well as proficiently light up your garden, many LED flood lights are available in 10, 30 and 50 watts.
#3 – Flexible Fibre Optics & LED Tape
Many people are discovering the benefits of using fibre optics to illuminate their garden, more specifically their decking. A flexible and highly inexpensive investment, you can run fibre optics on as little as £9 a year, allowing you to light up your garden all year round.
Fibre optics and LED Tape can be controlled by you creating seamless colour changes at whatever speed you desire, allowing you to create an exterior lighting design that is unique to your garden.

Fitted with sophisticated RGB colour-changing technology, you can choose from a single colour, to interspersing colours, to colours of your choice. Lighting has never been limitless!
The benefits are there for all to see. LED’s offer an affordable, long-lasting and hardwearing solution to garden lighting design and it’s no surprise that demand is high. With expert guidance from some a specialist LED supplier and installer, you can have a garden that is as beautiful and inviting as it is practical.
