Spring service time is here! Please hire a professional landscape lighting contractor to service your lights.
This picture is from a service call we went on this past season. The previous contractor connected two separate circuits with speaker wire. Definitely not a best practice.
If you are a hardy soul and remove the snow from your
property it is easy to make sure your outdoor lights are not damaged as you dig
out. The problem comes when snow removal
is contracted out.
Make sure your snow removal contractor is aware that there
are landscape lights on your property. A well designed landscape lighting system
will have taken snow removal into account and placed light fixtures out of harm’s
way. But sometimes even in the best designed low voltage landscape lighting
systems get damaged during the winter.
