We hope you are enjoying your summer and gardens. Here are a sampling of three beach gardens that we’ve designed in Venice. Using draught and salt tolerant plants is a must. Fast growing tall bamboo and salt loving grasses give movement to these gardens as the breezes sweep down the narrow streets. Working with these petite lots in Venice privacy screening is often an issue. Here we’ve used both Mexican weeping bamboo, Otatea acuminata aztecorum and Orange Clock Vine, Thunbergia gregorii on a custom trellis to add privacy beautifully.
