Landscape feature lighting types

Path lights and Pathfinder lights - these are good to highlight the edge of a path, steps or stairs.

Decking lights - very effective to have around the decking to define the edges or sides.

Brick lights and wall lights - brick lights can be useful low down to light up a walkway or drive.

Bollard lighting - Bollards are good if you want to light up a drive or path

Directional lighting - ideal for illuminating designated areas

Fence lights - positioned either high up or low down, fence lights are really good to highlight the fence

Driveway lighting and Entrance lights, - These can be a floodlight that automatically switches on so when you drive or walk towards the sensor the light will turn on.

Automatic lighting - You can have your lighting switched on with either dusk till dawn or a time switch

Area lighting - sometimes very useful to a have a large light you can switch on that will light up the entire area.

LED light colours -  there are a few different colours of light you could choose, most common are Warm White: 2200K-3300K and Cool White: 3300K-5500K

Why it is important to use a Residual Current Device

An RCD is a safety device that switches off the electricity automatically when it detects an earth fault. Any socket-outlet that may be used for plugging in portable electrical equipment that is to be used outdoors should have RCD protection. this includes feature lighting.

Check that you are protected by an RCD with a maximum rated residual operating current of 30 milliamperes (mA). If your socket-outlet is not protected by an RCD, purchase a good quality plug-in RCD adaptor from a reputable dealer, as a temporary measure. The safest option is to get a registered installer to install permanent RCD protection to all socket outlets that may be used for plugging in 230 V outdoor portable electrical equipment.

RCDs need to be tested quarterly by the users of the electrical installation, in accordance with the notice that should be fixed near them. This normally involves pressing the test button and checking that the RCD switches off the supply immediately. Regular testing is important, to ensure the correct operation of the RCD mechanism in the event of a fault.

Water Pumps for Garden Ponds

Incorrectly installed or damaged 230V electrical water pumps in garden ponds, may create a serious electric shock risk in and around the pond, resulting in injury or death. This is because the risk of electric shock is higher in the presence of water. This page is intended to help you to use electrical equipment safely in the garden and avoid electrical accidents. The risk of an electric shock causing serious injury or death, is greater outdoors than indoors, due to possible wet conditions and physical contact with the ground.

A 230 V electric water pump in the garden should be:

  • Good quality and be purchased from a reputable retailer
    • Protected by an RCD, that is tested by means of the integral test button at least every 3 months
    • Installed in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions
    • Provided with cables that are protected against accidental damage
    • Maintained in good working order, including cables and any connections
    • Switched off when carrying out pond cleaning.

If any defects are found, switch off the water pump’s electrical supply immediately and have the pump repaired by a competent electrician.

Flexible Cables and Connectors

Cables and connections should be:

  • Good quality and be purchased from a reputable retailer
    • Suitable for use outdoors
    • Suitable for the equipment used
    • Free from damage and kept clean
    • Used in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions
    • Switched off when carrying out pond cleaning.
    • Located to prevent anyone tripping over the cable
    • Routed to prevent them being damaged e.g. stepped on or cut
    • Kept as dry as possible.

If any damage is found, unplug from the electrical supply immediately, and have the damaged items replaced. Always take care not to damage flexible cables and connectors.

If an ‘inline-connector’ is required it must be correctly connected to the flexible cable ends by a competent person, in order to avoid danger from any incorrect connections being made, which might result in serious injury or death!

Wet Conditions

Wet Conditions

Do not use electrical equipment when it is raining or in areas that are being watered. The risk of serious injury and even death from electric shock, are far higher in wet conditions, than in the dry. Ground conditions may also be slippery in the wet, which increases the risk of an accident. Electrical equipment may also suffer damage in wet conditions.

Using electrical equipment in the garden in dry conditions reduces the risk of an accident.

Our Recommendations

Incorrectly selected, installed or damaged 230V outdoor lighting installations may create a risk of electric shock, resulting in serious injury or even death.

For 230V feature lighting in the garden:

  • Buy good quality electrical outdoor lighting equipment from a reputable retailer
    • Make sure outdoor lighting fittings (luminaires) are weatherproof
    • Ensure lighting fittings used for water features are waterproof
    • Have it installed by a competent electrician in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions and BS 7671 – Requirements for Electrical Installations (IEE Wiring Regulations), which is the national safety standard for electrical installation work
    • Check for damaged lighting fittings, cables and connections
    • Remove leaves and dirt from lighting fittings
    • If any faults are found, switch off the electrical supply immediately, and have them repaired.

We have recently redone our living room and ProElec did a fantastic job installing LED down lights, replacing sockets and even mounted our new TV on the wall, cutting a channel inside the wall to feed HDMI cables through so there are no exposed wires. They did a really neat job, cleaned up the very little mess that was caused and were friendly and reassuring throughout. I’ll definitely call them first when I need any more electrical work - in fact, I’ve already booked them for another job.

We recently had these guys over to our property in Widnes and received a very very good service. We had a number of quotes from various more local businesses and nothing seemed to come close to our budget or quality of work we seen on the website. I will and already have recommended Lee and his team to Friends and family. Thank you again for a 1st class service

Lee and his son wired up the summer house that was built in the back garden. They used armoured cable from the consumer unit to the back garden. The armoured cable was attached to the side of the house very neatly, and the sockets were put into the Summer House with an RCD. Lee and his son also put spot lights inside and outside the Summer House. The cabling and trunking were done exceptionally neatly. Lee's work is exceptional, his attention to detail is very good, he is very neat and he is conscientious off the work that he does. I would highly recommend any electrical work to be carried out by Lee and his son.
