Tips To Get Your Landscape Lights Ready for Fall & Winter


Here are a few tips to help you prepare your landscape lighting for the fall and winter weather:

1. Adjust your settings to match the shorter days. Be sure to take a moment to adjust the timer setting in your transformer to match the new daylight hours for your location.

2. Check all of your lights and bulbs to make sure they are in working order. Replace any burnt out bulbs and clean any dirty or damaged fixtures.

3. Trim back any bushes or trees that may be growing into your light fixtures. This will help prevent damage to the fixtures and keep your lights shining bright.

4. Inspect your wiring to make sure there are no frayed or exposed wires. If you find any damage, replace the wiring immediately.

5. Add new fixtures for safety. If you notice any poorly lit areas that could be a potential hazard, expanding your current landscape lighting system ensures that the high traffic areas in your yard are well lit for yourself and any visitors.

By following these simple tips, you’ll help ensure that your landscape lighting lasts through the rainy fall and winter months.
