The seaside/water front is probably the greatest feature that the Hampton’s area has to offer, with emerald water, beautiful sandy beaches, and magnificent sunrises and sunsets. However, despite the beauty, these landscapes present limitations and challenges. Salt laden winds and soil limit the vegetation types and sizes and the fragile qualities of this ocean zone require delicate and conscientious consideration. Through research and experience, we have established a palette of plants that will not only survive but, when in combination with retaining structures and techniques, thrive in these tough conditions.
