the glo system

Conceived to deliver a high quality, robust garden lighting installation, the glo system is of a modular design and structure that allows you to choose how many garden lights you would like, all for a fixed price.

The glo system provides 6, 9 or 12 lights respectively and you can determine the cost of the installation by simply deciding which ‘glo box’ you require.

If you are unsure how many lights you need to light your garden, simply send our lighting designers a selection of photographs of the areas you would like to light, some measurements of the entire garden space and at no extra cost, we will be pleased to recommend a suitable glo system for you.


glo lights

To keep costs to a reasonable level but standards to a high quality, the glo system offers a limited range of lights, all manufactured by Hunza®, one of the best-known lighting manufacturers, powder-coated in our own distinctive but discreet ‘lava glo’ colour.  This carefully selected basic range will cover most standard lighting effects.

We have specified Hunza® fittings for the glo system due to the excellent quality of their design and manufacture. These lights deliver robust performance with the capability to withstand adverse weather conditions, while still being easy to maintain.

glo plus

For most customers, the glo systems cover everything they will need in respect of garden lighting for the smaller garden. However, for those who have specific requirements or particular difficulties with the layout of their gardens, we can offer the following optional extras.

glo extension cables - If you would like to position your garden lights further apart, these low voltage extension cables are available, complete with waterproof plugs & sockets. Priced at £15 for 5 mtrs, £20 for 10 mtrs and £25 for 15 mtrs. (All prices include VAT). Please Note: Longer cable runs can be made up on request but will be quoted separately.

glo festivity kits

For parties, entertaining or Christmas, you can simply unplug one of your glo system lights and plug in one of these festivity kits. Powered from the same glo box you already have installed, these optional lights can transform your garden for those special occasions. (NB: The glo festivity kits are subject to limited availability & supply. Do not unplug any existing lighting or plug in a festivity kit while the glo lighting system is switched on).

glo fairy tree lights -  This 30 metre 300 LED string light is ideal for draping around an outdoor Christmas tree. Weatherproof and economical to run since it is LED, the glo fairy tree light is also available in blue, pink or purple with 8 different kinds of light effect modes that can be changed by a weatherproof controller.

 
glo fairy tree lights: £20.00 (including P&P and VAT).
8 glo green lanterns - Ideal for an outdoor party, this attractive set of low voltage replica lanterns come with a warm white, long lasting and economical LED light source. The total length of cable supplied with the set is 10 metres. The 8 lanterns are then positioned at 1m intervals offering a 7m long display of illuminated lanterns to be draped through a tree or hung from a pergola.

glo lantern kit: £50.00 (including P&P and VAT).

20 glo party festoon clear lights - This party set comes with 20 normal size traditional lamps, but are manufactured from shock resistant materials with a non-replaceable LED light source. Supplied with a 12 metre cable, the lamps are spaced every 0.5 metre which offers approximately a 9.5 metre lighting effect. Perfect for creating an outdoor party atmosphere.

glo festoon kit: £75.00 (including P&P and VAT).

glo weatherproof exterior socket - The glo system requires an accessible, working, exterior weatherproof socket within easy reach of your flower beds. The mains cable from the glo box must not cross a path, passageway or terrace, for example. Please ask for advice on this subject, if you are unsure when ordering.

If there is no exterior power socket for your garden lighting, next to a flower bed, then the glo electrician can install one for you at the time of installing your garden lights at a fixed cost of £225.00 (inc VAT). Providing there is an interior socket to an outside wall, that faces directly onto
the garden or the flower-bed you would like to light.


the people & the installation

With a dedicated team led by Mike Shackleton, senior lighting designer with parent company ogl, your own garden lighting will be installed by the same skilled electricians who usually install our larger, more complex exterior lighting projects.

With that degree of experience and knowledge available on site, we are confident we will have your garden lights installed and fully operational within the same day of delivery to your premises.

For glo system installations outside the M25 area however, please phone for a separate delivery and installation quotation, since the travel time may affect the cost and schedule.

Since the glo system is a modular fixed-price system, not the bespoke installation of Ornamental Garden Lighting, the low voltage cables for the light fittings are not buried (normally they are left on the surface of the flower-bed and then covered by the client with mulch or bark chippings at a later stage) but the glo box will be fixed safely to a fence or wall, close to the exterior weatherproof socket.

Please Note: Installation must only be carried out by a competent person.

And finally, one of the great benefits to the glo box installation is that when you move, you can take your garden lighting with you.

 

ordering

All that is required to order your own glo box is to email your enquiry, including a small series of photos of your garden.

Ideally we would like to receive shots of the view down the garden from the house, from the end of the garden back to the house, the flower-beds left and right and then shots of any key elements (a feature tree, a statue, a special plant) you would like to light.

Given that information, one of our lighting designers will phone you to confirm your choice of how many garden lights would be appropriate to light your garden (or advise you accordingly), arrange a suitable installation date (normally 5-10 days from ordering), take payment… and that’s it.

Simple, easy… and life enhancing.

 

glo case study



With this small London garden, the clients were so pleased with the result of the recent hard landscaping and beautiful planting that they were sorry to see the garden disappear into darkness at night.

They wanted to be able to enjoy the experience for longer every day, with their family and friends, for relaxing and entertaining

 



Since the garden was now established, burying cables and hard-wiring were going to extremely difficult, so they contacted the ogl lighting team to see if a modular glo system would work.

Armed with the garden’s dimensions and some photographs of key focal points, our lighting designers recommended a glo 12 system.

Installed by ogl electricians on the same day as delivery, here are the results…

In the words of the client:  "We already loved our beautiful new garden created by Claire Mee Designs but what a difference Mike Shackleton's glo lighting has made! It’s brought the outside in and given a stunning background to our home no matter what the weather. Mike has spent years in the film business and it really shows. The lights are perfectly placed to bring dramatic emphasis, shape and colour to an otherwise dark and wasted space. The glo system is so quick and easy to install you could almost give it as a Christmas or birthday present. The results are almost instant and completely magical".  Mrs Susan Lewis, London.


glo case study 2

In complete contrast to the previous example of a glo installation, this well-established, small Twickenham garden was an amazing mix of tropical and exotic planting, creating an intimate and intriguing private retreat.

Loved and cherished by the clients, they wanted to able to enjoy the peace and privacy afforded by the dense planting during the hours of darkness, as much as during the day.

Given the dense planting in this magical garden, the choice of lights was very important so the effect wouldn’t be lost or made ineffectual by the foliage.

After careful consideration, a glo 12 system (12 Hunza lights) was again employed to create an intimate, almost mystical effect during the hours of darkness…
