Typical halogen lamps will last for about 8 to 15 months. In order to keep the lights working properly you should replace all of the light bulbs about once a year because if one lamp burns out then it will reduce the voltage on the system and can cause the others to burn to burn brighter than they are supposed to. This will cause repeated burn out.
Trees grow and plants mature. Your lighting might need to be changed due to the changes in your landscape. Also if you add new plans or remove plants you will likely need adjustments to your landscape lighting.
