Who’s Behind - The Low Voltage Garden Lighting Specialist?

Outdoor and garden lighting is being requested more and more as part of good landscaping requirements and designs.

Consequently designers and landscapers have skilled-up to provide a service to their clients and also to offer high quality products.

The Team

We are committed to being totally transparent and open with information as well as providing first class customer service. So we have tried to provide everything we feel you may need when considering your outdoor lighting (including clear T&C's!).

The team has many years of practical hard and soft landscaping experience and has within it Architectural Design skills (ex Westminster University BSc Hons). It's that collective experience and skill that differentiate us from others. Retailing outdoor lighting products was a natural extension to installing them.

The landscaping division provides hard and soft landscaping services as well as general garden, tree surgery and ground maintenance services to both domestic and commercial clients. There's little the team hasn't seen or done!

A natural extension to our professional outdoor services is safe low voltage lighting suitable for a whole range of outdoor spaces.

The Products

There are many DIY stores and online web shops offering cheap 12v outdoor lighting or solar powered garden lighting. But you take the risk when trying to assess and buy cheaper products!

So we sought after reputable suppliers for safe lighting that only provide high quality, low voltage (12v) outdoor and garden lighting fittings.

All items sold by are genuine products and our professional services for design, installation and maintenance are geared to their products. Combined with low energy LED consumption we believe our product set to be complete and professionally acceptable. now fills the wider market to help clients purchase and install their own lighting as well as providing services for design, planning, installation and maintenance when required.

Design Studio

Our lighting design team is led by James Parnham (B.Sc Architectural Design & Engineering).

James has a great knowledge of various lighting design best practices, technical lighting effects as well as practical installation skills. This enables unique designs to be tailored to your specific brief and carried out with confidence.

By working closely with our garden landscapers and designers we are therefore able to provide you with a lighting design that is practical for installation!


Lighting often provides the lovely ‘atmosphere’ and 'mood' to allow the outdoor features and gardens to come alive in the evenings as well as providing basic security lighting when needed.

Historically 230v installations have been the only sensible option. However, they come with inherent safety issues (mains electricity) and very high energy consuming fittings (e.g. halogen bulbs).  Halogen bulbs are very costly to run and have the negative environmental impact that is now well known.


In the last few years the outdoor and garden lighting market has matured significantly and now low energy-consuming LED technology is fast becoming mainstream.

Similarly, safe 12v voltage cabling has also matured with fully waterproof and more durable fittings and accessories.  So the marketplace now has mature, quality products that are safe and use significantly less energy.

The Business was created not only to sell quality outdoor and garden lighting, but to also give advice and offer design, planning, installation and maintenance services.

The 12v lighting division now fulfils the needs (at a national level) for safe low voltage lighting to garden professionals around the UK.

It is the internet trading name of Oakland Outdoor; a sister division of an outdoor services and landscaping business ran by family partnership in the West Midlands, UK.  See for further information.
