1. Choosing the Right Video Installation

Whether you will be entertaining during the day or night, you’ll want to choose the kind of TV that portrays rich colors and is able to deflect glare from unwanted light sources.
Séura makes TVs specifically for outdoor use. They produce TV screens that are three times brighter than regular screens and the colors are so perfectly saturated that images are able to project through the harshest glare.
In addition, Séura outdoor TVs are fully waterproof, able to endure extreme temperature changes, and are designed to repel any kind of dust from entering its system.
2. Knowing Which Kind of Audio Speakers Are Right for You
Another absolute for the ideal outdoor entertainment experience is selecting the right kind of audio speakers. First, you will want to figure out what kind of configuration suits your needs.
Will you be hosting parties where people will be mingling in and out of different groups or will you more likely be organizing your very own outdoor movie nights? The answers to questions like these will help our installers determine whether you want audio projected over a large area or a speaker layout that is more akin to a surround sound experience.
Our choice for outdoor audio speakers is Coastal Source. Their top-of-the-line audio speakers are completely weatherproof and include options that can cover your entire landscape.
They offer stylish 3-way and 2-way ellipse bollards that can give your backyard a high-tech look but if you’re looking for something less obtrusive, they also have smaller speakers like subwoofers and rock speakers that can be seamlessly hidden among the landscape.
3. Make Your Backyard Come Alive With Integrated Lighting
Another excellent idea for designing your backyard party space is to install a specifically designed lighting system. Coastal Source also offers excellent options for creating such a system.
Their all-weather outdoor lighting fixtures can highlight pathways, accentuate the architecture of your house, or be strategically placed amongst your landscaping to set off the impressive patterns and colors of your backyard foliage.
