Best Lighting Schemes Follow Mid Summer Fun

The one thing about having a mid summer barbeque is not having to worry too much about lighting in the garden.  The sun doesn’t disappear until at least 9pm even now that the summer solstice has passed.   I have to say though that the chance to pop on garden lighting is such fun these days – I only have a small family sized plot myself so no need for more than the light shed from the family room for me.  However I do have pals with the most gorgeous country cottage out in the middle of farmland, remote and wonderfully atmospheric.    They have installed lights in very specific areas, under benches pointing up through the shrubs and uplighting particular trees.  It’s absolutely magical when we all gather for cocktails.  They have had some marvellous guidance and service from their local lighting contractor – something that has been worth every penny.  Sound advice and very safe installations from a chartered surveyor, Kent called Consult Construct. They offer fantastic building advice when it comes to safety and sticking well within regulations, especially with older buildings.
