Ornamental Garden Lighting has been established to work in close partnership with garden designers, landscapers, architects and private owners to enhance and complement their skills and passion.

With specialist knowledge and considerable practical experience in the field of exterior lighting and electrical installations, based on 35 years in the film business, ogl works closely with you to fully understand the key areas of the garden design or layout.
Designated areas can then be sympathetically lit to create dramatic effect through the windows of the client‘s home or business and can include areas of serenity for entertaining or areas with more practical lighting for swimming pools, garden steps, drives or barbecues.

All the electrical work carried out by ogl is completed by qualified electrical contractors and is conducted under either the Minor Works Regulations or Part P of the Building Regulations with a NICEIC certificate issued where appropriate. This, combined with our own comprehensive insurance, ensures that you can have complete confidence in the exterior electrical or garden lighting installation.

The scale of the work ogl carries out varies enormously from commercial installations, to large private estates, right down to smaller residential gardens... but whatever your project may be, we can assure you of the same attention to detail and professional service.

Michael Shackleton, ogl’s senior lighting designer, came to garden and architectural lighting from a background of 35 years in film production as a Director of Photography and later as a Director. Michael formed Ornamental Garden Lighting as a direct result of the owners of featured locations asking to have the same dramatic cinematic lighting effects recreated for their homes and gardens, so they could enjoy the result on a daily basis.

Michael is a professional member of the Association of Lighting Designers.

Michael is also a member of the Worshipful Company of Lightmongers.
