Landscape Lighting


Landscape Lighting

Your landscape lighting is a lot like your car. If you don’t keep up on the basic maintenance needs, you’re setting yourself up for bigger, more expensive problems when you least expect it.

Believe it or not, here in Minnesota the cold does little to affect your landscape lighting. With the prevalence of energy efficient LED lighting, frigid temperatures actually play into your lights’ favor promoting true performance and an even longer life.

Outdoor lights are built for the elements, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve a little TLC once or twice a year. To get the most out of your landscape lighting this fall and winter, follow these seven helpful tips.

Detailed Cleaning:

Removing hard water deposits from a bulb lens is critical for maximum performance. Irrigation City Inc. of Minnesota uses a proprietary solution to ensure your lights continue to shine bright.

Bury Exposed Wire(s):

It’s not uncommon for cables to work their way to the surface and become exposed, especially in high traffic areas, near lighting fixtures or at sites where the weather has been particularly unkind. Making sure everything is back underground will reduce trip hazards around your property.

Trim Vegetation:

Plants fight for space. That’s what they do. And sometimes your landscape lighting gets overtaken by an aggressive plant(s). Cutting back foliage around fixtures will keep your lights unobstructed. Fallen autumn leaves can end up anywhere and everywhere — especially in outdoor lighting fixtures with recessed bulbs. When leaves pile on, say, a halogen lamp, enough heat is generated from the light source to scorch leaves and possibly create a fire risk.

Adjust Lighting Fixtures:

Watching a tree grow is a lot like watching grass grow, but much, much slower. That said, trees can still present a sneaky problem to your outdoor lighting by encroaching light fixtures if you’re not paying attention.

That’s why we like to adjust the downlights we use in trees once a year. This includes backing the hanger bolts out a couple turns as the tree grows and also resecuring any loose wires to the tree’s trunk.

Replace Burnt out Lamps:

Thanks to the lengthy life cycle of an LED light, bulb replacement isn’t that much of an issue anymore. With LEDs, we are more concerned with their brightness. Are they shining as brightly as they were on the day of the installation? If they aren’t, we’ll replace them under our five-year warranty.

Brush Off Lights:

While LEDs are known for maintaining a touchably cool temperature, halogen lights are quite the opposite and have no problem melting away a little snowfall. But when the Minnesota snow machine really starts to pile on the inches, a light broom is the perfect tool to loosen up and gently brush away the accumulation.

Not up to taking care of the maintenance yourself? Irrigation City Inc. of Minnesota is. And we’re now offering a lifetime warranty on our products and installations when our once-a-year service is included in your lighting package.

To learn more about the maintenance your landscape lighting requires before winter sets in, or just need a summer tune up, just call us or schedule your own appointment. (952) 233-1905
