Does this ring a bell ? One of the clients you referred to us calls us, after hours, in a panic because their music system went down and they have party guests arriving at seven o’clock .. ahhhh ! It was working just a few minutes prior .. WTF ? The thing is, this scenario is becoming all too familiar as the systems we implement increasingly rely on streaming music services like Spotify or Pandora.
When something stops working, where do you point the finger ?, is it the music service that went down ? .. is it the wireless coverage that’s acting up ? .. or has the equipment actually failed ?, and most importantly, how do we get it fixed in time for the party ?

Take a stroll up and down the aisles at Home Depot or Lowe's and you will see a plethora of "Smart Things", each equipped with their own app. Perhaps you are interested in smart light bulbs or maybe smart locks to keep your home secure. Or there is the sleek designed and popular Nest smart thermostat. Literally you could go on and on, whether its surveillance, water heaters, refrigerators even irrigation systems.

Over the years Stone Glidden has worked to make hundreds of Outdoor Spaces come alive. Cool serenity washes over client’s faces when they see how the pieces come together to create a timeless experience. A place you can get lost in, right outside your door.
The spaces that really seem to work are those that start with thoughtful landscape design. Great craftsmanship infused with surrounding nature (see our blog: The Donald Pell Experience).
Any outdoor space can be brought alive with some thought and expertise. Think about the things that you would enjoy doing in your outdoor space: relaxing, entertaining, dining, sleeping, thinking, reading, exercising, meditating, unwinding after work. Two things can accelerate all of those experiences, sight and sound. Music can facilitate every single one of those activities.
