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.
And we searched. Our criteria were simple, or so we thought. But it seems no one out there manufactured a product that would not succumb to the elements. Some displayed damage in weeks, others took months, but they all gave way to the elements.
What can a fed up homeowner do?
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. “A solution that is defying the elements.”
By taking a systematic approach to landscape lighting we’ve been able to anticipate and overcome failures. Coastal Source has designed and engineered the entire system to be better… from the transformer to the last light bulb.
Coastal Source offers a complete solution. A solution that defies the elements.
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.
And while we were at it we improved upon a number of challenges we faced in the field ourselves.
Coastal Source landscape light fixtures are made completely of brass. Right down to the nuts, bolts and stake.
Coastal Source landscape light fixtures are 100% sealed to keep out moisture, corrosion, debris and bugs.
Light bulbs eventually burn out and have to be replaced. The typical landscape light is so corroded within a matter of months that it cannot be opened. Not only do you need a new light bulb, you need an entirely new fixture. Not anymore.
Full system warranty—from the transformer through to the last fixture.
Best of all, you aren’t throwing away a light fixture or entire system every few years. You are doing the earth and your wallet a huge favor.

Not any more. Thanks to patent pending Coastal Connector which is an industry first for landscape lighting. Coastal Connector utilizes marine-grade tinned wire that quickly forms an in-line connection with male and female waterproof connectors.
INFORMATION: Simply plug the connectors together, twist closed and you have made an air and water tight connection.
Landscape lighting systems are installed in the field. Dirt, water, fertilizer, bugs and plant roots will find a way to infiltrate spliced connections.
Typical lighting designs feature a few to a few dozen light fixtures. Fixtures are wired from the power source through a series of splices until all fixtures are connected. When wires are cut and spliced it is almost impossible to create an air-tight, waterproof connection. These connections expose wiring to moisture and corrosion - a big no-no for anything electrical. All Coastal Source landscape lights come with Coastal Connectors already installed. This allows you to make an air and water tight connection every time. Simply plug and twist shut to form a waterproof seal that is impervious to the elements.
The best fixtures and connectors require the same performance from the wire that connects them. That’s why we chose to incorporate marine-grade tinned wire throughout our lighting system. This is the same wire you will find on the highest quality yachts.
Save time and money. Just place your fixtures in the desired locations, lay the appropriate length of cables and plug them together. That’s it.
Want to add a few fixtures or eliminate some? No problem. Simply unplug then Plug+Play with Coastal Connector.
Stay tuned for even more innovative products from Coastal Source that will utilize patent pending Coastal Connector.
