If you've taken the time to create a gorgeous garden, what better way to finish it off than with some stunning outdoor lighting?

We wouldn't go so far as to call ourselves lighting savants, but we have looked at some of the lovely projects completed by landscape architects already, in a bid to inspire your next garden endeavour. 

Get ready to feel illuminated!
