Gardening on the Coast

Plymouth, MA

Gardening on the coast brings its own set of challenges -- it's windy, the soil is very sandy, and temperatures can fluctuate greatly within a single day. I planned and planted all of these gardens myself, and after eight years, they've begun to take on the shape I envisioned. I hope you enjoy strolling through them . . .
