Miller Beach Native Landscaping
Our clients’ property is close to the beach in the Miller Beach community, and they were looking for a unique planting design that worked with and added back to the natural habitat. Building a linear contemporary home facing the waterfront, they wanted to create a mostly native garden to soften the view as you pull in to the property and to enjoy throughout the seasons. They also wanted a small firepit and sitting area in the back to enjoy together.
With limited acreage directly on the property, we worked to maximize each corner and allow the plantings to flow into natural beach view, intentionally using all natives at the edge of their property to reduce any habitat disruption. We worked with the clients’ distinct taste and considerations with plant variety requests and created a plan that would grow in with different blooming times, textures, and colors. We also worked with a local contractor to reestablish marram grass that was disturbed during the construction process.
The end result of this design installation was a little different since they wanted to plant directly into the soil and sand to maintain a natural look as if it was already there before them, so we are excited to see how it fills in during the years to come and as these natural beauties take root!
