Coastal Garden

Learn how to design a beautiful, easily maintained coastal garden!

Coastal Gardens can be places of beauty and interest where you can relax and enjoy the bounty and beauty of the sea. However, proximity to the ocean or sea must be borne in mind when considering what to plant. Selecting plants which can handle strong winds and salt sprays will be key in the design of a seaside garden. Luckily, many beautiful plants and flowers, if carefully selected, will survive and even thrive, and help you design the perfect coastal landscape. Consider planting native coastal plants or grasses. These seaside-hardy plants are well suited and have the added benefit of helping to control erosion and provide a breaker from blowing sand.
