Do you love how your landscape lighting adds value, beauty, safety, and security to your home? Then there are six (6) times you need to call your outdoor lighting company.

1. Landscape Improvements and Changes


Planning on an outdoor kitchen addition, planting a new tree, or a new patio improvement project? Perhaps your next landscaping project is a smaller change. Whether big or small, any time you make changes to your landscape your outdoor lighting company will need to be informed.


If need be, Natural Accents Outdoor Lighting will uninstall your landscape lighting fixtures before your landscape improvement. This will keep your fixtures from being damaged during construction and wires being cut. Our technicians will then reinstall your fixtures once your improvement is completed.

2. Before a Home Addition


Whenever you plan to have construction crews around and/or in your home, you will need to call your landscape lighting company. The techs at Natural Accents Lighting will confirm which lighting fixtures need be removed temporarily or permanently to make way for your new addition. As lighting fixtures can be broken and wires damaged over the course of a construction project, it is less expensive and faster to have lighting fixtures temporarily removed, stored, and then reinstalled vs. having your lighting system repaired after damaged by a construction crew.

3. Tree Removal


Trees play a large part in the ecosystem they live in. So when a tree dies, before it is removed it is important to contact your outdoor lighting contractor. The tree may have landscape lights installed in or around it that need to be removed before the tree is or the stump ground.


Since well maintained tree lights and fixtures can be removed and reinstalled, a landscape lighting appointment before arborists work on your tree is imperative. The heavy equipment used to remove trees can easily break in-ground lighting fixtures or damage tree boxes. The Natural Accents lighting pros will quickly remove your fixtures and schedule a convenient time to discuss your fixture reinstallation.

4. Planning Home Improvements


While many home improvements won't affect your outdoor lighting systems, several can. The detailed As Builts kept by Natural Accents Outdoor Lighting technicians can assist other contractors working on your property. A quick call can verify you have the most recent As Built for your property, plus verify if your planned improvement affects your lighting system.

5. Pouring Concrete or the Installation of Stone Paths or Driveways


Outdoor accent lights often lie near the edge of concrete patios, driveways, or walkways. Of course, by their very nature path lights run the perimeter of sidewalk or garden paths. This means that whenever work is done to repair or replace driveways and paths, the landscape lighting needs to be moved first.


Natural Accents Lighting technicians will quickly uninstall bollards, path lights, or landscape fixtures that are near the construction site. This will keep the fixtures from being damaged or wires cut by working contractors. It will also keep transformers organized properly for optimal power usage and zoning controls.
