Music has been scientifically proven to boost the power of the human brain. Some studies show that music has been helpful in restoring verbal skills and memory functions among stroke and Alzheimer patients. Beyond a clinical setting, music does wonders for the human spirit in an outdoor setting. Naturally music, whether it’s classical, pop or country, awakens all of our senses, and helps us focus more intensely on the beauty of nature. Just attend a concert under the skies at a mountain resort or wide open prairie this summer to experience this first hand. The good news is that you can experience the power of music coupled with nature right at home too! Outdoor media technology now makes it possible to install the same quality sound system in your backyard as you have in your home. Systems like Sonos that enable you to link your MP3 player or smart phone playlists to multiple speaker stations inside and outside make it easy to listen to the sounds that soothe your soul anywhere in your yard and home simultaneously. Regardless of the type of stereo system you have, if you can connect music to speakers, you can bring it outside easily and safely in any climate and during any season. There are many options for outdoor music and audio technology today and just as many products to keep them safe from nature’s elements as well. Today’s outdoor living systems’ designs make it possible to listen to Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major under the stars of winter, Josh Groban’s rendition of Starry Starry Night on a hot summer night, or the New York Philharmonic play Rachmaninoff amidst the rustling of fall’s leaves without compromising the natural ambiance you worked so hard to create outdoors. Speakers for your outdoor spaces are completely weather proof and can be disguised in rock-like encasements that match any garden setting or outdoor landscaping. You can also build your hardscapes around speaker stations for further protection and décor.

So whether your heart sings for rock and roll, or your mind prefers the tranquil tones of new age music, there’s a simple, elegant way to make it happen in all your favorite places outdoors at home - under your pergola, on your deck, in your hammock, or floating in your pool. Like Dobie Gray and Uncle Kracker suggest with their classic song, “Drift Away,” with an outdoor music system, you can take time every day to free your soul and drift away (in your pool or in your mind) with your favorite sounds outdoors. Give me the beat boys and free my soul I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away Give me the beat boys and free my soul I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away -Dobie Gray, Uncle Kracker
