Love Your Garden



Moonlight Design featured on Love Your Garden


For the second year running Moonlight Design was featured in ITV1's prime time television program 'Love Your Garden'. This program is Britain's best loved garden makeover show presented by Alan Titchmarsh. The show features stunning transformations of gardens up and down the country.

The Love Your Garden Team led by Alan faced with their biggest challenge to date - The smallest garden they’ve ever transformed and a family coping with a very rare condition.
 
Lou and Andy Webb have two young children who are affected by a genetic condition that severely restricts their eyesight. Both 4 year old Harvey and  2 year old Megan suffer from Achromatopsia which means that they can only see in fuzzy black and white.

Although they wear special goggles, they find sunlight too bright to be out in. With all their time and energy taken up looking after the children, Lou and Andy haven’t been able to make the garden of their terraced house in Tonbridge, Kent a more child friendly place and it’s currently full of uneven surfaces and a broken down greenhouse.


Our MD David Haslehurst, was called in for his garden lighting expertise to help film a slot on garden lighting; especially important for Harvey and Megan. The garden they filmed at is in Surrey. This is no ordinary garden though; David designed the lighting for this garden in 2005, 9 years ago and it's still going strong. All of the lights are solid copper and made by Hunza from New Zealand and switched by Lutron lighting controls.

David Domoney one of the presenters of 'Love Your Garden' toured the Surrey garden at night to talk about the lighting and effects that can be created with good garden lighting design. The garden in the program features halogen lights however back in 2005 LED's were not a possibility.

Now LED garden lights are the most popular light source because they are cheap to run and require very little maintenance.

The garden lighting was designed by David Haslehurst and the lights were supplied by Moonlight Design. One of the best parts about the garden was the lighting as this let the children Ben and Harvey, enjoy the garden without being in the sun.

The programme was aired on Tuesday 6th 2013 August ITV1 8pm and if we do say so ourselves, it was illuminating!!
