The compressors must be placed in a shed or you must build a shelter to protect the compressor. The airline that comes with these kits is not weighted airline so you will need to add weights (bricks) every 10' feet to keep the tubing below the surface if you don't want to see it.
The air stones that come with the systems can be placed in a 5 gallon bucket with rocks to keep them on the bottom and prevent them from stirring up any sediments.
