Coan Waterfront Landscape, Camano Island, WA

A small stone patio with fire pit sits next to the water. The stone walkway is carefully used to tie the garden to the residence across the street. This is a unique seaside, low maintenance garden. Drought resistant and salt friendly plantings were used throughout. This garden has become the focus of the neighborhood with many visitors stopping and enjoying what has become a neighborhood landmark. Photo by Ian Gleadle

It was purchased in Camano Island, Washington, and made locally. I'm don't know the company that made it other than that. There are many companies that make a similar chair and also plans on the internet to construct one yourself. Thank you for your interest.

I love the walkway to the very inviting adirondack seating area. Similar teak adirondack chairs are available. Click on this link for more informationhttp://atlanticpatio.com/seating/adirondacks.html

The color purple - I love the purple flowers used in this walkway. Can you please tell me what are they called? I plan to make a walkway in my front yard and wanted it to be low maintance and drought resist. I live in Puerto Rico which has a Tropical climate and can become very hot.

The purple flowers are Red Mother of Thyme, Thymus serphyllum. It is a low maintenance ground cover that is drought resistant, deer resistant and can stand salt water. It grows in most climate zones. Heat is not a problem. Humidity may give you some issues. It doesn't like wet conditions. Thanks for asking.

Hi there, chair is stained with Thompsons Bleaching Stain, It seals, preserves and bleaches the wood to a silver beach wood. It also prevents the soot like mold that is common in this area.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Genevieve Schmidt added this to Breeze Into Coastal Landscapes
The weathered wood of this Adirondack chair fits in beautifully with the muted tones of this windswept coastal garden.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Coastal Garden Style
Add the Finishing TouchesAn Adirondack chair is the classic beach accessory, at home on either coast. Weathered gray is the traditional look, but you can also find them in bright colors and easy-care plastics.
