Illuminating Chelsea Flower Show 2024

David Harber Torus sculpture with reflections and planting lit by John Cullen Lighting

Chelsea Flower Show 2024 opens this week and we are once again lighting up two mesmerising gardens, showcasing the magical effects of discreet outdoor lighting to bring these spaces to life after dark.


The David Harber stand displays David’s sculptures in their full glory, each carefully nestled within beautiful planting and landscape as designed by Jamie Langlands from Oxford Garden Design. With integrated lighting within most of the fittings, the garden comes alive at night, supported by an additional considerate lighting scheme.

The inspiration behind the garden is David Harber’s 30th Anniversary, with an engraved timeline embedded in the ground communicating the brand’s journey and this passage of time is also reflected in the layering of the planting.

Sustainability is a key design factor in the garden design, so we carefully positioned discreet spike light fittings within the foliage to provide a soft glow and focal points. The Hampton spike lights gently uplight the dramatic multi-stem trees, whilst olive green Portobello and Kew spike lights disappear within the planting. Dark Sky Kews project light spill downwards to provide path light and focus to key features.

Lucca uplights create a dramatic effect over the water feature backdrop within the covered seating area, with miniature Lucca 30 uplights providing accent to the wooden beams.

Find the David Harber stand on Main Avenue stand 338.

We have also lit the enchanting garden surrounding the Blue Forest treehouse. The garden, designed by Randle Siddeley centres around the treehouse, to create a magical pathway that guides one through the space.

Gentle soft light within the planting is created by our Carella, candle-like spike lights, whilst the Hampton 40 floodlights provide a wash of light up the surface and frame of the treehouse. Kew 25 spike lights direct light subtly onto the delicate trees within the scheme, whilst Hampton 25 spike lights discreetly illuminate the pathway through the garden. The Dark Sky Kew fittings are positioned within the scheme to provide soft downward light onto the planting surrounding the treehouse.
