efficiency and cost savings of using LEDs makes aesthetic lighting in the garden a much cheaper option, and the energy efficiency means that illuminating garden features doesn’t have to cost the earth. John Cullen Lighting is just one company that believes LEDs have their place in the garden, and need to be flexible in order to create the right atmosphere all year round. This is something that Sally Storey, Design Director at John Cullen Lighting, believes is really important; “The key to successful garden lighting is flexibility. Spiked fittings, which can be easily moved to suit the changing seasons and planting growth, are ideal. A new mini 1w LED spiked spotlight - the Kew - and a mini directional 1w spiked floodlight - the Hampton - allow you to light your garden with as little as 60w of light in total – so you really don’t need to feel guilty about energy

consumption. For larger gardens the 8w Kensington and Richmond from John Cullen are an ideal solution.” The ability for lighting to make gardens safer once it gets dark is essential, as, especially in the summer when the weather is warm, we will want to spend time in the garden even when the sun goes down. Storey believes lighting doesn’t need to be too invasive to be safe; “Lighting can turn steps into a feature and make them safer. The 1w LED Siena or Lucca External, recessed into the sidewall are ideal. For a contemporary solution, use night lights in small glass holders to provide a pretty way to emphasize a staircase or low level wall.” Atrium’s Fielding understands the important role that LEDs can play in creating ideal garden lighting installations, but believes that a combination of new


technology alongside existing installations may be the best way forward; “LEDs for the outdoors are increasing in popularity, particularly as they are becoming more efficient and cost effective. That said, traditional light sources are still widely available and what we are seeing now is the use of these together with LEDs to fulfill garden lighting needs.”
