Many people do not want to hassle with landscape projects during the winter season. This is because the conditions are often less than ideal for working outside. Although you can forget about many parts of your landscape until the spring season, you should not neglect your landscape lights because they won’t function optimally unless you give them the attention they need. With that said, keep reading and discover a few easy ways to get the most out of your landscape lights this winter!
Change The Position Of Your Outdoor Lights
Be sure to spend some time this winter season repositioning your landscape lighting fixtures. Various forms of precipitation and harsh winter winds can cause fixtures to move out of place. You may need to wait until the evening hours to see that the light is shining where it is supposed to. It can be difficult to determine the right angle of certain fixtures during the daytime. Also, if your lights are not shining at an optimum level, you may want to consider switching any incandescent bulbs to LED.
Invest In Timers
Do you have timers on your landscape lighting? If not, this should be the year you finally make this purchase! With timers, you won’t have to worry about remembering to turn off your landscape lights on and off.
Clean Your Light Fixtures
In order to get your outdoor light fixture to project light better, you will need to clean it. To do this, you need to first ensure the light is turned off and then remove the bulb. From there, you will need to wipe off any dirt or grime that has collected on it. You should also take a glass cleaner to clean off any glass parts. Also, this is a good time to remove any cobwebs that are around your light fixture. Since insects are drawn to light, you shouldn’t be surprised if you discover a few spider webs around your lights.
