When your putting any fixture in the ground you have to make a decision, buy a cheap unit and end up replacing it and then complaining about it on Lawnsite or spend a couple hundred and install something decent, do it correctly following the manufacturers direction and never think about it again. Check out the BK Co2 series, I've installed about 300 of these and had only 3 go bad, my fault not the fixture. Another great unit is the Kim LED mini vault.

Well, I don't think I was complaining, just trying to understand why something happened and how to prevent it from recurring in the future. You know, like a professional. Anyhow, I worked with the lighting contractor and the client and they're swapping out the solid lenses for a louvered cap. These folks have been good clients and we're looking at renovating the front this spring, so I'll keep an eye on things and see what I think of the solution.

I'll also take a little more active role in specifying fixtures. I've typically done a rudimentary lighting schematic and left the fixtures, spacing, etc up to the lighting guys (it's a dedicated local company that only does landscape lighting). Grow and evolve, grow and evolve...
