Although social distancing and quarantines are in effect throughout the country, many folks in Delaware are able to enjoy the outdoors by spending quality time in their backyards and gardens. While the days are getting longer, many homeowners still utilize landscape lighting to boost curb appeal, provide security benefits, and keep their properties bright. If your lighting system seems to be past its prime, contact a qualified outdoor lighting contractor. The team at Sposato Irrigation can help address these issues and more to help keep your lights working their best!
1. Encroaching Plants
Your garden, by its nature, is always changing and growing. Fast-spreading hedges and slow-growing trees can each cause their own issues. An outdoor lighting contractor should be able to tell you which plants should be trimmed back, and they should also be able to adjust your fixtures so that they better suit the changing landscape as a whole.
2. Exposed Wires and Damaged Components
As with any other outdoor feature of your home, your landscape lighting system is susceptible to damage from weather, animals, landscaping equipment, and more. Your outdoor lighting contractor can address any broken, malfunctioning, or damaged components of your system. They can also inspect fixtures and wires to ensure the safety of your landscape lighting. After all, great care must be taken whenever electrical components are exposed to the elements.
3. Inaccurate Timers
If your outdoor lighting has been turning itself on while it’s still light outside, you likely have to adjust your lighting timer. With the sunrise and sunset times changing throughout the year, you will have to keep up with your lighting timer’s set routines in order to use your lights effectively. An outdoor lighting contractor can help you make sense of any complicated lighting timers and help you program the best schedules for you.
4. Dim, Dull, or Dirty Fixtures
Lastly, if your lights are just not as bright as they should be, the problem may be a simple case of dirty bulbs and lenses. Because they are exposed to rain, dirt, and plants, your outdoor lighting fixtures should be cleaned regularly for optimum performance. If you have not cleaned your fixtures in a while, your lights are likely not as bright as they could be.
