Landscape Design by Eckersley Garden Architecture. Lighting design, supply, installation and maintenance by Light on Landscape.

Our design brief was to illuminate areas of the garden without them seeming to be illuminated. The garden was divided into rooms, an area each for reading, eating and playing – with their own personality, aesthetic and function. Our challenge was to accentuate the personality of each room without putting any one of them on a pedestal. Subtlety and harmony were the keys to this project. As the garden was relatively young, it was critical to light the garden with the mature one in mind.Light on Landscape installed the 40 fittings specified working in tandem with the landscape and electrical contractors. Our key challenges were to keep the cabling neat on the double storey residence as they would be exposed until the creepers grew.

The positioning of fixtures needed to be flexible to accommodate for plant growth. Cabling was carefully planned to ensure easy access should they be damaged and to allow for extra cable tail length in the event that the fixture positions needed fine-tuning. As a family was living in the house during the project, cleanliness and safety considerations were top-of-mind.Our client was delighted with the outcome. We visit the garden twice a year as part of a lighting maintenance program to ensure all fittings are kept in working order and to reduce potentially costly repairs.
