I am lucky to live only two hours from the beach and every time I drive home after vacation I'm so relaxed and content that I wonder how I can bring a little bit of the beach back with me. In "My Beach Life" I will look at all the ways to bring that beach feeling home.
First up: Beach Landscaping
Sea oats, fountain grass and varigated switch grass look stunning by the water. Can I achieve the same effect at home? How about flowers? What grows best by the beach? Hibiscus for sure; but also zinnias, asters, and marigolds. What other elements might suggest a house at the beach?
A trip to my local garden center is in order. I'll let you know how it goes!
