The weather is set to warm up in the coming months, and many Delaware homeowners cannot wait to spend more time outdoors. Unfortunately, the cold winter weather can do a number on your outdoor lighting system. Before you start planning that first spring barbecue, make sure that you have taken care of your home’s landscape lighting maintenance needs. Consider adding these items to your landscape lighting maintenance checklist, and contact the professionals at Sposato Irrigation to get your yard ready for spring!
Adjust Your Lighting Timer
As the days get longer, you might notice that your lights are not turning on or off when they should. Until you adjust your timer, your lights will continue to turn on at the time you’ve set for winter sundown. This is all well and good until smack in the middle of summer, when you suddenly realize that your lights have been turning on during the daylight hours for weeks. If you have a high-tech lighting timer, you might be able to change your timer with relative ease. However, if your lighting timer is ancient and you cannot find the manual, expert assistance may be necessary.
Address Winter Damage
Another essential aspect of landscape lighting maintenance is inspecting your system for damage. Delaware winters can wreak havoc on any outdoor fixtures, including lighting and irrigation systems. Weather, animals, and people can cause major damage to outdoor light fixtures, so your landscape lighting maintenance professionals will check your system to ensure that any damaged components are found and repaired. Outdoor lighting maintenance is essential in late winter and early spring. If damaged lighting components are left in place throughout the spring and summer, they can waste energy, perform poorly, or create a safety hazard.
Perform Basic Landscape Lighting Maintenance
Even if your outdoor lighting system does not have any broken components, there are a few routine maintenance tasks that can ensure an efficient and effective system. The experts at Sposato Irrigation can clean and adjust your light fixtures. This allows your wash lights, path lights, and directional lights to shine brightly and in the correct direction. Whether you need help adjusting your lighting timer or you need to address a significantly damaged part, the experts at Sposato Irrigation are here to help.
