Outside Sockets & Lighting Installations

Your local electrician in Cheltenham & Gloucester

Outdoor electrics and electrical installation can be very dangerous and if you do not have the correct knowledge, experience, and qualifications you should speak to a professional electrician at Livewire Electrical in Cheltenham and Gloucester.

We will discuss your requirements before arranging a free initial site visit to meet you and your garden in person. After which we will provide a quotation for the design and installation to suit your needs.

Outside Lighting

Outside lights are fundamental to any successful garden. Our aim is to highlight your garden’s best features, such as plants or water features and create well-lit areas for entertaining or safe passage.

Outside lights come in all forms and you should start by thinking about why you need outdoor lighting.

Is it for an entertainment space for you and your family or maybe so you can invite guests around, or is it simply for security in your home?

Are you looking for outside light installation to deter unwanted visitors or maybe it’s simply to make a dark path safer to walk on at night?

When installing outside lights you should also consider your neighbours and light pollution.


Outside lights have 4 main functions

  • Access: To direct the safe movement of people around the property
  • Security: To discourage people from entering the property uninvited
  • Usability: To allow the garden to be used at night as an extension of the inside
  • Aesthetics: To allow the landscape to be admired 24/7 from both inside and outside the house

Outdoor Socket and Power

Are you sick & tired of running cables through your doors or windows so you can enjoy electricity in your garden?

Livewire Electrical can supply & fit outdoor sockets in almost any location to suit your requirements.

From a simple outdoor socket on the external wall of your house to a socket at the end of your garden fed via armoured cable, we can design a solution to suit your needs.

This can enable you to run electric garden equipment such as a lawn mower, hedge trimmer and various other items including power tools, in a safe way. In fact, it is wise to have one at the back and one at the front of the property, which can be used for car washing equipment, power washers and other electrical items such as vacuum cleaners.

Ensuring the electrical installation has RCD protection and the electrics are installed correctly and by a qualified and competent electrician.

Hot Tub Installation

If you’re installing a hot tub or spa in your home, it’s very important to make sure that all of the necessary electrical wiring is installed professionally by a qualified electrician and should comply with Building Regulations.

All hot tubs must be RCD protected and have an isolation switch. Once the hot tub is installed, we will issue an electrical installation certificate, which will be required under warranty if any problems arise. 


Whatever your individual requirements are, you can count on us for a reliable, professional solution.
