Common Issues with Outdated Landscape Lighting

As professionals in landscape lighting, we frequently encounter requests to repair or update outdated lighting systems. Below are some prevalent problems associated with outdated landscape lighting:

  • Flashing, Faded, or Inconsistent Light: Irregular or dim illumination can indicate issues like faulty connections, improper wiring, damaged or outdated wire, or failing fixtures. Outdated box store Led lights and fixtures may fade more quickly compared to high-quality, professional-grade options.
  • Single or Multiple Lights Out: If some lights are not functioning while others remain lit, it may indicate poor connections, improper wiring, or voltage drop. Proper wire sizing and length are critical for the functionality and safety of your landscape lighting system. Voltage drop can occur due to resistance in the copper wires, particularly if lights towards the end of the line are unlit. If all lights are out, it could signify an incorrectly sized transformer.
  • Visibly Broken or Rusted Lights: Clearly damaged or rusted lights should be considered for replacement, along with lights of the same brand or similar age. Landscape lighting fixtures endure daily exposure to elements like sunlight, Irrigation water, and moisture. High-quality copper or brass fixtures can withstand these conditions, developing a patina over time but avoiding rust. Fragility and rust often indicate poor-quality aluminum fixtures.
  • Bad Connections and/or Cut Wires: Poor connections represent the primary cause of landscape lighting system failures. Over time, wires with bad connections may become exposed to moisture, leading to eventual failure. Occasionally, landscapers, irrigation specialists, or other outdoor contractors may accidentally cut the wires, requiring proper reconnection by a landscape lighting specialist.
  • Incorrect Placement/Positioning of Lights: Proper placement and positioning of lights are essential for achieving an aesthetically pleasing design and optimal functionality. Even a functioning light may look unimpressive if positioned incorrectly. If the system appears disorganized despite operational lights and equipment, it’s a sign that lights need repositioning to achieve the desired look.
  • Overgrown Plants and Trees Blocking Lights: Older lighting systems often face challenges posed by overgrown plants and trees. Architectural lights may become obstructed by dense foliage, while accent lights on trees require periodic adjustment as the trees grow and mature. Neglecting this maintenance can result in lights appearing improperly placed and the system looking outdated.
  • Mismatched/Incorrect Kelvin Temperature, Lumen Output, and Beam Spread: If homeowners frequently switch lamps or replace fixtures, the lighting system may appear inconsistent or unbalanced. Using lamps with different color temperatures can create a mismatch between the new and old lamps, affecting the overall appearance.

Individually, these problems are easily fixable and may even be undetectable by yourself or a visitor. However, a combination of these problems will make your system look outdated and unprofessional. How do you determine if you need to repair or replace your existing system? Depending on the age of the lighting system and the condition of the fixtures and equipment, you may be able to fix your system by changing lamps, repairing bad connections, and repositioning the fixtures. However, if your landscape lighting is over 15 years old, the wiring is in poor condition, or the fixtures are failing (due to age or quality), you may be better off replacing your system. Outdoor lighting has improved significantly in recent years. The fixtures and lamps from 15 years ago don’t compare to what’s currently on the market and it may be a waste of time and money to try repair.
