Project Description

Esher New House Build Garden Lighting Project

Over the course of an 18-month new build of a family home in Esher, Surrey, the gardens were extensively re-designed and landscaped to cope with the different elevations surrounding the property.

By creating a Hillside Garden at the rear of the house, a beautiful vista was created from most of the principal rooms of the client’s home both during day and at night.

For entertaining, a south-facing garden was created with a large terrace, a David Harber sculpture and an outdoor kitchen as a central feature.

Interesting, intricate yet also practical and a pleasure for all, these new gardens have different areas for the whole family and their guests to appreciate and enjoy.

Mike Shackleton and the team at OGL have been outstanding in lighting our home and garden.  From the very first meeting with Mike, he proactively and energetically helped transform our garden and home. The project was a large house rebuild and landscaping of a 1.5 acre garden.  

From the very start Mike brought his expertise to help us understand how we could use lighting to transform both the garden and house at night.  He brought his creativity and design experience to help us shape what has become a defining attribute of our new home.  

His teams consistently, professionally and thoroughly delivered the scheme.  I cannot recommend Mike and OGL highly enough.  They are world class at what they do.  A pleasure to work with.
