2. How about bringing some stylish indoor lighting installations outside into your garden, in order to add a little extra illumination and offer a quirky aesthetic?

3. Under-seat lighting is a great way to keep everything seamless and fully integrated, while still brightening up the specific areas that need to be more dazzling.

4. Don't overcomplicate things, if you have a small garden! Simplicity can be the key to success, so try a few tabletop hurricane lamps with large candles inside!

6. Maybe you could add light AND warmth, with a hand-built firepit? We LOVE this idea!

7. Adopt a multi-layered approach to garden lighting so that you can highlight a few separate areas. Look to showcase colourful spots!

8. Adding some piquant lighting to your alfresco cooking station is a wonderful way to make sure that you can grill long into the balmy summer evenings!

9. How genius is this idea? Using small spotlights, reflected off shiny surfaces, to brighten your garden is a cool, contemporary and unfussy option for outdoor lighting.

11. Sinking spotlights into the raised beds in your garden make for a wire-free and simply stunning installation. Plus, all your favourite blooms will be perfectly highlighted.

12. Wow! Highlighting your tallest plants with some buried uplighters creates such a visually delightful display! This is a great tip for smaller gardens, in particular.

13. The simplest solutions can be the best, so how about keeping your lights mounted on an exterior wall, to flood a patio with handy illumination?

14. This garden looks amazing! With a myriad of hanging and floor-standing lights, all in the same globe shape, there is cohesion and a layered look.
