Seaside gardens need to be as tough as they are beautiful. Experience has taught us to never underestimate the hot sun or the salty winds of a coastal climate. The art is in selecting plants that thrive in such conditions. The result is a garden that weathers the seasons and flourishes year after year, becoming as much a part of your seaside memories as foggy ocean mornings and long days at the beach.
How These Gardens Are Made
Seaside gardens require in-depth planning to ensure the longevity of your plants. The use of native plants is a must in planning your seaside garden. Rosa rugosa, bayberry, viburnum and grasses are just a few of the many native seaside plants that can be utilized.
Colors For A 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.
