Design Services

Strategic yet well designed subtle lighting can create a magical effect and makes the house and garden as welcoming by night as they are by day.

Nigel Finnimore is an exterior lighting design specialist, with a landscape design background, whose strength lies in recognizing which design elements to feature and which lighting techniques to use to create the best results. Castlight has gained a reputation over the years for creating dramatic, yet subtle effects for clients in every situation from courtyards to country estates.

"Painting with Light" is how Nigel describes his work, blending the lighting on house exterior and the garden to create a harmonious effect.  Nigel can achieve dramatic results and transform your house and garden by highlighting architectural and landscape features with the clever use of shadows, silhouettes and soft mood lighting, with subtlety being the key.  Our climate allows for many hours of outdoor living and entertaining and a well lit house exterior and garden extend your hours of enjoyment long after sunset.

Castlight gives your garden a night time magic you previously only dreamed of.
