By installing these incredible landscaping features, you’ll experience numerous benefits. They can really take your entertaining game to the next level too! But we must warn you – once your guests see your awesome setup, they might never want to leave.

Benefits of Landscape Lighting Systems & Outdoor Speaker Systems


There are many types of outdoor landscape lights including incandescent, halogen, and solar. However, low voltage LED lighting has become the gold standard. Homeowners prefer LED lighting over all the other options due to several key reasons:

  • They’re very energy efficient, which means you’ll save money on your electric bill while doing your part for the environment
  • They increase home security by serving as a deterrent to any would-be criminals
  • They don’t overheat 
  • They last longer than halogen or incandescent bulbs
  • They add to your home’s curb appeal
  • They can make your home more attractive to prospective buyers when it comes time to sell
  • They provide great ambiance

In other words, when it comes to outdoor lighting, everything else pales in comparison to low voltage LED lighting.

Outdoor Speaker Systems

Nothing contributes to a party like great music and a quality outdoor speaker system. These features can really turn things up a notch. 

Outdoor speaker systems continue to become more and more technologically advanced and the sound they provide is crystal clear. Aesthetically, the design of outdoor speakers has also evolved and many homeowners are opting for customizable speakers that resemble rocks. Not only are rock speakers very durable and weather-resistant, they can seamlessly blend in with the landscaping to the point where you won’t even notice them. 

And perhaps best of all, you can connect your outdoor speakers with your indoor stereo system via wireless technology or even sync them with your phone. Whether you like to entertain or you just enjoy listening to music on your own, outdoor speakers make a great addition to every landscape.

As you can see, LED landscape lighting and outdoor speaker systems are great features that can really enhance your Minnesota home and your lifestyle.
