There’s a lot to check when buying a garden sound system. For starters, you need to think about the garden itself. Will you be using the system outdoors only, or will there be some indoor use too? For example, an apartment balcony is likely to get more regular use than a grand villa’s backyard patio (which will probably see more of its owners while they’re cooking on the barbecue!).

Secondly, you’ll want to consider how much budget you have for your speaker system. It might seem like common sense, but there are plenty of people who fail to do this and end up with regrets once they find that their desired speakers simply don’t fit into their available budget. If you’re on a tight spending limit, then it’s best to stick with lower-cost wireless Bluetooth speakers so that they can still provide impressive sound quality without costing the earth.

Thirdly, it’s always worth finding out if you can simply attach ordinary speakers to an existing sound system or whether you need a completely wireless system. It is certainly possible with most personal stereos, but in some cases, this might not be practical unless they are designed for outdoor use in mind (in which case they will usually be waterproof too).
