Services Landscape Lighting
Outdoor lights are an essential part of any landscaping project. The right garden lights will create a relaxing ambience as well as proving to be an important safety feature. Fortunately, we are now spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor lighting and there almost as many options for garden lights as there are for indoor lights. Insight landscapes, your local landscaping company, will be able to help with outdoor lighting ideas in the planning phase of your garden makeover.
Types of Landscape Lighting
Outdoor garden lights can transform dull outdoor areas into interesting features. For example, uplighting plants and trees can create a magical mix of light and shadow in your garden. Popular plants to highlight with light include palm trees, gum trees, silver birch trees, bamboo, dragon trees, pittosporum and native grasses.
Other outdoor lighting ideas include gently washing pathways and steps with soft lighting, creating dimension by lighting up a blank wall and lighting up a decked area.
Landscaping lighting is available in LED or Halogen. Outdoor LED lighting is far more energy efficient, but the brighter your lights need to be the bigger the actual globe will need to be. The most important consideration when choosing your garden lights is the quality of the product. We only install reputable brands of outdoor lighting that have a high IP Rating.
Services Timber Decks and Pergolas
When it comes to landscaping for your home or business, there are a myriad of options to make your property look its best. Timber is a versatile, contemporary material that will complement almost any existing structure and create a rustic, natural look for your property. In addition, if you have a sloping landscape, timber work can function well to bring the space together.
One of our most popular options is timber decking. A timber deck is an attractive and cost-effective way to add more living space to your existing home. Timber decking comes in all shapes and sizes and can be tailored to suit all tastes and existing structures.
Pergolas are another of our most popular timber work options, covering decks, patios, and other living areas of your yard and garden.They create privacy and add an additional layer of protection. Choose from a range of quality hardwoods and supporting materials.
Other Timber Work
In addition to decks and pergolas, we also craft timber staircases, benches, posts, bridges, garden beds, and innovative, one of a kind timber pieces. For example, using timber to section off your yard is an effective way to complement gardening beds or create spaces for entertaining and relaxation.

Retaining walls are usually incorporated to hold back soil or separate sloping and uneven grounds. As well as being functional, retaining walls can also be beautiful and add a bit of extra flair to your garden.
Types of Retaining Walls
Retaining walls create divisions and hold back earth, particularly on sloping blocks. They create stability, prevent sinkholes and support the soil while controlling water runoff. Just because retaining walls are practical doesn’t mean they have to be ugly. Popular durable materials include:
- Concrete Blocks
- Natural Stone
There are many options when it comes to retaining walls, and your landscaper will work with you to select one that suits the existing structures of your home or business.
