The natural conditions along the northeastern coast can have an impact on seaside gardens. Factors such as sand, sprays of saltwater, and wind need to be considered when designing these landscapes. Landscaping professionals are knowledgeable about varying environments and conditions, and with their help, homeowners can find solutions for designing, installing, and maintaining a beautiful seaside garden.
How These Gardens Are Made
Seaside gardens require some more in-depth planning to ensure the longevity of your plants. Native plants are often used to enhance the garden but can also serve as a protective barrier for more sensitive plants from the natural environment. Additionally, native plants thrive in the seaside environment and tend to be more heat- and drought-tolerant. Seaside gardens may require alternative barriers to shield your greenery from the elements as well.
Decorating Seaside Gardens
Crisp whites, inky blacks, and neutral shades of gray provide stark contrasts with the lovely greens and vivid colored flowers that are typically present along the seaside. Vintage, weathered furniture in hues of sea, sky or sand make for the perfect and functional outdoor seating.
