Relaxed coastal gardens are known for their silvery foliage, grassy greens, and bright flowers. The plants are full of colour, texture, and movement, and they bring a sense of wilderness and freedom.
You don’t need sea views to get that fun, informal look in your own outdoor space. Most coastal plants will thrive in any garden with well-drained soil and a sunny spot. They are tough plants, used to battling strong winds and salty air, usually in poor soil or on steep banks.
It’s fantastic to get that seaside flavour, especially when you live miles away from the nearest coast. So, I’ve picked the top 10 coastal plants to bring the beach to you.
By mixing shapes, colours, and textures in your borders, it will add to the coastal effect. Add to the look with gravel, shells, pebbles, and driftwood. You could even add in some big props like a boat and create a fun play area with a sandpit for the kids to enjoy.
