A Little Upkeep Will Keep Your System Shining Bright for Decades

At LUX Landscape Lighting, we’re passionate about installing and maintaining landscape lighting systems for peak performance. We’ve been called out on third-party service calls where we’ve seen shocking failures. You can see some of the evidence in our post “Epic Fails: Landscape Lighting Installers Gone Wrong.” It’s become clear to us that Cincinnati homeowners need Landscape Lighting Maintenance Program options from experts in the field.

Spring & Fall Cincinnati Landscape Lighting Maintenance

Landscape lighting, like any other type of mechanical system, needs regular maintenance. To keep your system operating like new, we recommend twice-a-year maintenance.

  • In the springtime, after your landscape has been cleaned up and mulched, we perform our maintenance checklist to make sure your lighting system is working as designed.
  • In the fall, once your landscape beds and leaves have been cleaned up and removed for the year, we assess your system again to make sure your house and property are well lit for the winter months.

Since outdoor lighting fixtures are planted in your landscape, we make adjustment as the plants grow. So that the light continues to provide the appropriate illumination as originally designed, we may need to move fixtures or trim plants. A well-maintained system will continue to highlight your home and landscaping beautifully for the entire life of the system (which can be decades, depending on the quality of products installed).

Landscape Lighting Maintenance Reviews

We’re honored that our customers have given us so many five-star reviews. Check out all of LUX Landscape Lighting’s Google Reviews.

“LUX Landscape Lighting has done a great job for us.  I am on the board of our Home Owners Association and we hired LUX to convert our 109 gas street lights to low voltage LED.  LUX provided a competitive price, but more importantly they brought considerable expertise and professionalism.  They completed the project on time, they followed all the specifications for proper installation and most importantly their crew interacted with our home owners and their properties with care and respect.   We were so pleased with their results, we hired LUX to provide ongoing maintenance to our lighting systems.”


“Excellent customer service and workmanship! Eric went above and beyond to solve the issue when our landscape lighting stopped working. He was thorough in troubleshooting the problem and kept in contact after the repair to make sure everything was working properly. Will definitely use LUX for any future outdoor lighting needs.”


“If you’re looking for outdoor lighting with reasonable pricing and exceptional service, look no further. We have quite the difficult house in Mount Adams and was not sure how they were able to get the lighting done. They did a fabulous and amazing job. They have a great warranty on the lighting and their service. Sean is amazing to work with this past year. We have some good wind and the some of the lighting was crooked and they came out right away to fix it. Our land scapers also pulled out some of the wires and sean and his team were right over to fix it ASAP. I could not recommend them more.”


“We were happily surprised that our service was conducted days before it was promised.  Eric efficiently made the repairs to our system that was installed by another company.  He was so efficient that I asked if he had time to fix another lighting problem.  Fortunately, he was able to fix that problem too.  We highly recommend LUX Landscape Lighting.  Sean, Rebecca and Eric (the people we have spoken to) are great.”


“Definitely recommend Lux. They were super responsive and came out to fix our lighting immediately and offered lots of ways to improve the lighting options.”
