Uplights can add another dimension to decking, block paving and other surfaces. They offer illumination and decoration when built into the surface, you'll be walking on light.

Spotlights will have a dramatic effect on the landscape, lighting up features including ornaments, plants and trees. There are halogen and LED versions that have the capacity to transform the appearance of any outdoor space.

Post Lights or Bollards can perfectly line a path, making it both more attractive and safe. Manufactured from stainless steel, aluminium or resin and glass, choose one that most ideally suits your landscape and location.

Which Transformer ?

Once you have chosen your lights, add up their wattage and this will determine which transformer is required - 22, 60 or 150 watts.

Bear in mind that you may extend the system in the future, so it may be advisable to choose a transformer larger than is currently required.
