Coastal Source® Landscape Lighting
Landscape lighting has to be tough. It has to defy the elements.
Irrigation, fertilizer, insecticides, acid rain, weed whackers, bugs and salt spray take a toll on the typical landscape lighting system. Salt spray may be the most damaging of all. If you live on the coast like we do it’s tough to get away from salt.
Coastal Source landscape lighting products are built with integrity. More than 50 years of hands-on industry experience gave us what we needed to take on the entire landscape lighting market. Real world and laboratory testing gave us a solid understanding of the challenges we had to overcome.
“Coastal Source is not the cheapest option. It is the best option.
As a part of the coastal testing process we evaluated products from every reputable manufacturer of landscape lights. One of the problems we faced is that all products work, even the cheap ones, for a little while. Then they quit, fail or fall apart. You are forced to make expensive repairs or totally replace a non-functioning system. Customer satisfaction and your reputation suffer. Coastal Source landscape lights are created from the raw material up. The fixtures are designed for superior function and durability. Now you don’t have to replace an entire fixture because of a weak link. Audio West will assist you in creating an outstanding landscape lighting design that will last for years to come.
