Environmental setting: Located within the beach/dune environment.
Highlights: This harsh coastal environment, inhabited by a very short list of plants experiences salt splashes, strong winds, lack of water and scorching temperatures during the summer months. Sandy soil holds a very limited amount of nutrients and moisture, which creates challenging conditions for most species. The well-selected and arranged plant material in the garden has proven successful in restoring this desert-like place into a colorful and vibrant destination for pollinators and beachgoers alike.
