Using hydroponics outdoor is one of the smartest things you could do. The main cost involved in hydroponics is electricity so cutting out the indoor lighting and environmental control equipment is a smart investment. The down side of outdoor hydroponics or gorilla growing is the inconsistent sunlight as you can never predict the whether. Another thing to consider is the bugs and pests that will try to consume your crop. However with all this being said plants grown in natural sunlight always have a special aspect about them; Ask any old hippie who's been around the block. They taste better, have a different DNA structure and are always more natural which in turn is what you want when you value your health.
There is a myth that goes around that dictates that indoor is better than outdoor. However at The Hippie House we find this is not the case. Some of the best plants we've consumed be it tomatoes, herbs or fruit has been grown outdoors. Don't let the myths put you off outdoor growing as we find the end product when done correctly is just as good if not better than indoor growing.
You can use any type of hydroponic system outdoors as well although some work better than others. This is all a trial and error kind of thing - it takes time finding out what works best for where you are growing and how the entire set up is conducted to match the growing environment. There are so many variables that take effect with outdoor growing and it can always take a bit of testing. However, like mentioned earlier, when done right the rewards are well worth the effort.
