Landscaping at the ShorePosted: 6/25/2014 12:04:25 PM
At the Jersey Shore, and other coastal communities around the world, the sandy soil calls for just the right plants to be used in order to have a successful landscape design.
In the article titled, "Salt Tolerant Plants for Beach Landscaping," posted at About.com it states, “An excess of salt prevents them [plants] from absorbing water properly. A salty spray carried on the winds only exacerbates the problem for would-be gardeners in seaside communities.”
Therefore, when choosing which plants are best suited for your landscaping design project, some examples for salt-tolerant flowers and foliage could include Ivy Geraniums, Daylilies and Prickly Pear Cactus.
When it comes to groundcovers and vines you may want to look into English Ivy Plants and Virginia Creeper Vines; for shrubs one option is Bayberry; for trees there is a wide array of maples, oaks, cedars and locusts to choose from – just to name a few!
