Over the previous season we encountered a handful of landscape lighting systems that, since installation, had been left untouched. Needless to say, each of these sites required some attention.
At Moon Glow we take a great deal of pride in our ability to install a great design for you. But equally as important to us is our capacity to service systems that we may or may not have installed.
Regular maintenance is crucial
Like your furnace or air conditioner, a scheduled maintenance is a good way to keep everything in perfect working order. We understand that life gets hectic, so having your system in perfect working order ensures complete enjoyment during your down time.
It starts with:
- Safeguarding seals and sockets to ensure that dampness issues don’t arise.
- Cleaning the lens of a light fixture allows the bulb to present itself like it was new.
We also check to see that the bulb is in perfect working order.
From this service we move along to straightening and possible relocation. In our Canadian climate, the freeze/thaw cycle means ground-mounted lights may shift out of position.
Moving fixtures may be necessary as the garden matures. Plants grow. Your lighting may require adjusting with this.
This could even mean a bulb change or the addition of another fixture to capture a now-larger specimen.
Tree-mounted lights need extra care and attention
We highly value the importance of servicing tree-mounted lights.
As trees grow, it is vital that we adjust the fasteners to keep the fixture from being in direct contact with the tree to maintain plant health. Wire fasteners see the same service.
And last but certainly not least, don’t forget to replace the batteries in your timer!
If your system is in need of a tune-up, please call Moon Glow today.
