Garden lighting can be one of the most important features in your garden. The right lighting will not only give the "WOW" factor to your garden and enable you to use it more effectively at night, but will also allow the garden to be viewed from the house when you are inside - greatly extending your enjoyment of the area.
Lighting effects to enhance your garden's look Lights placed within planted beds look amazing and will be absorbed by the foliage for a magical night time effect. Lighting can be used to highlight specific features or to detail outlines.
Recessed lights can be set into walls, steps, paving and decking. Bollard style lights can mark pathways or terrace edges. Stylish light fittings can illuminate pergolas or seating areas.
Not sure if you want lighting for your garden? No problem. If you decide that you don't want to include lighting now but may want to in the future, we can install appropriate cabling and conduit to allow installation after construction of your new garden.
Irrigation to keep your garden hydrated We would always recommend the installation of a simple automatic irrigation system where possible. Seep hose or drip systems are exempt from current hosepipe ban legislation. But even if there is no ban in place, having the garden watered automatically is hugely labour saving, uses less water and is much better for the plants.
So if you want your plants to thrive, but would rather spend your time enjoying the garden and using less water, an automatic irrigation system is the perfect solution to protect the investment in your plants. Finding the right type of irrigation for you A simple automatic irrigation computer can be fitted to a garden tap and hose pipe would link various lengths of seep hose or dripper nozzles situated within the beds.
There are other irrigation solutions for planted beds, lawns, vegetable areas, pots and hanging baskets which we will be happy to discuss with you.

Ponds and water features
Water has been an important part of garden design throughout history. From a small water feature to a large pond, the presence of water can be contemporary, traditional or natural.
At Garden Creations, we have created ponds and water features, including fountains, for many different gardens and have extensive experience in construction and planning.
The calming effects of water in your garden
The sound and sight of running water adds an extra element to any garden, enhancing the overall effect and giving greater opportunities with planting schemes, utilising natural differences in existing levels and encouraging a more diverse wildlife.
