It's A Jungle Out There -- How Overgrown Vegetation Can Quickly Take Control Of Your Outdoor Lighting

FlowersHere in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater areas, the conditions are perfect for plants to thrive. The mix of moisture, humidity and warm temperatures can result
in a lush and flourishing landscape. In most scenarios, having a vivacious landscape filled with thriving plants, trees and bushes is a positive. However, if your outdoor lighting system has become overwhelmed by the overgrowth in your flower beds and landscaped areas, problems are surely afoot.

Not only will unkempt, overgrown landscaped areas inhibit the amount of illumination that is being cast
from your existing outdoor lighting system, it can also create safety hazards that need immediate attention.

The picture below represents a customer of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay
who is on our AMP program. AMP stands for Annual Maintenance Plan. During our annual visit to the property, we found that some of the fixtures were being taken over by vines and landscape overgrowth.

As part of our Annual Maintenance Plan, we removed the overgrowth from the fixtures ensuring the quality of the light remained as well as the safety of the system. While keeping a lush Florida landscape is a beauty to behold, plant material overgrowth can quickly envelop outdoor lighting fixtures and cause them to overheat. This can place stress on the system and cause overheating, melting and possibly even a fire hazard.Overgrown plants on lighting fixture
