The Minnesota Winter is almost here and soon temperatures will be dropping below zero. This is your last call for any repairs to your outdoor lighting systems. Once the ground freezes it is almost impossible to repair broken or cut electrical lines. The decreasing daylight hours in the winter means you will see your landscape lighting more now than you have all year. Nothing is quite as frustrating as having your system down all winter long.
While you are thinking about your lighting, when is the last time you changed the bulbs? The tree lights are going to be near impossible to change once it snows. Any fixture using an MR 16 (see below) should really be changed once a year and fall is the best time. So go to the local hardware store or lighting supplier and get those bulbs changed before it snows.
