Gardens by the Sea by Barbara Segall

Set against the most romantic and dramatic of backdrops, gardens by the sea have a special beauty. Coastal conditions also present specific challenges. This book highlights 20 of the world's most inspiring coastal gardens - among them an elegant drought-tolerant garden in California; a blaze of colour on the shores of a New Zealand bay; shady terraces with breathtaking views over the Mediterranean; a clifftop garden in Devon; and perennial planting on a rocky outcrop in Maine. Photographs show the gardens in their full glory, while Barbara Segall reveals the secrets behind the magic in her detailed descriptions. Segall goes on to provide all the background information needed to make a successful seaside garden. She profiles more than 150 plants that thrive in coastal conditions; explains specialist gardening techniques for coping with salt, wind, drought and sun, shingle and sandy soil; and, in a special chapter on garden features, outlines the whimsical and hardworking man-made elements - from sea-shells, driftwood and boulders to decking, terracing and screening - so evocative and characteristic in coastal gardens.
