Outdoor Coastal Source Audio & Lighting Project

Outdoor Coastal Source Audio & Lighting Project

A longstanding client of ours wanted to create an outdoor entertainment area that they could enjoy day or night. The two main features of the entertainment area are a pool on the upper level with a waterfall splash way to the lower-level patio focused around a fire pit. Our client wanted a great audio system to entertain guests and lighting that served not only to assist in getting around the area but to also feature landscaping and the new hardscape.

To fulfill all the client’s desires we utilized Coastal Source lighting and audio equipment, and a Sonos music streaming system that provided access to a multitude of entertainment options.

Lighting Needs

For the lighting portion of the project, we used 4 different Coastal Source products. 10 Coastal Source double-tiered China-hat path lights were used to light up the walkways and flower beds on either side of the patio. On the twin stairways flanking either side of the pool, we utilized 18 Niche lights on each riser. This provided enough light to assist with walking up the stairs at night without taking away from the masonry work during the daytime.

For the fire pit area, we incorporated 6 Coastal Source Lip-lights that are installed on the bottom of the large coping stones.  And finally, surrounding the entertainment area are 6 Coastal source tiki torches with integrated citronella oil-burning reservoirs providing a combination of ambiance, lighting, and practicality. 

Audio Needs

To satisfy their audio needs we utilized two Coastal Source 3-way Ellipse Bollard speakers installed in the planting beds on both sides of the stairway (shown in the pictures below). These unique speakers combine both the upper-frequency speakers and the subwoofers in one efficient low-profile package to produce an amazing sound that immerses the upper and lower levels of this outdoor space without overtaking the landscaping or aesthetics of the space. The Sonos streaming music system provided our clients with simplicity and ease of access to their preferred audio.

Finished Project

This was a very fun job to complete that created a great outdoor ambiance for the client. It gave them a great place to hang out by their lake and take full advantage of their backyard day or night!
