Dayton & Cincinnati Landscape Lighting Service & Maintenance
As your landscape matures, trees and plants get bigger and a fixture that was placed a year or more ago may no longer be providing the best illumination due to overgrowth of your vegetation. We’ve seen fixtures swallowed under ornamental grasses, those that are now too close to the base of a once smaller tree, etc. We can come over and rescue your drowning fixtures and re-position them into a better spot so that they can shine brightly again. We can trim back your overgrowth, too!
No one wants to see their landscape wiring in their garden beds. It simply looks tacky and disturbs the overall appeal of the look of your home. Over time, these can surface as roots push them up, you dig around to put in new plants and mulch washes away with rain. We can come in and remedy this unsightly look and re-bury your wiring so that it is hidden underground where it belongs. Exposed wiring isn’t only ugly, it’s also more likely to be accidentally cut or damaged by gardening tools such as clippers or the lawnmower, too.
When lighting is cast on trees that have leaves during summer, it looks very different in the fall when the leaves are gone. Sometimes, it makes sense to move a fixture during the fall and winter months to take advantage of the limb and branch structure of a deciduous tree.

We can even change the color of a lens to play up the color and texture of the bark or just to add some holiday fun.
