Coan Waterfront Landscape, Camano Island, WA

From the street, a round rock pathway leads to a small seating area next to the water with a small fire pit. Low maintenance, drought resistant and salt tolerant plantings were used in mass and clumps. This garden has become the focus of the neighborhood with many visitors stopping and enjoying what has become a neighborhood landmark. Photo by R. Scott Lankford

Are any of these plantings considered native to WA? If not, do you have any native favorites to plant along a saltwater shoreline bulkhead? Your work is beautiful!

Hi there, You may try Elymus glauca, blue beach grass along the bulkhead. It is pretty tough and can take some minor immersion. Gaultheria shallon is also a native that can take the salt along the bulkhead and is seen in native shoreline plantings. Hope this helps.
Scott,

Hi There,

I am not sure if you are talking about sending email through houzz or directly to Lankford Asscociates. I have little knowledge of the Houzz connect system, but I can always be reached at scott@lankfordarchitecture.com. Thank you for your interest.

There is no irrigation on site. The plants were initially hand watered for a month or so until the rainy season started until established and survive without additional water. The blue oat grass and the thymus are drought tolerant, although the oat grass will start to brown out a little after about 45 days without rain. Thank you for your interest.

The Thymus serphyllum is planted in 4" pots 18" on center in fertile mulch. It is important to prepare the base by cleaning out the existing bed of all weed stock by Roundup or hand removal. Once the bed is smooth and graded to 3" below the finish grade, apply preen or corn gluten as a pre-emergent before applying 3" fertile mulch. Plant the Thyme in the mulch and re apply Preen over the top.

Thymus serphyllum can be found at several local nurseries. Swanson's in Ballard usually carries it. T & L Nursery in Redmond propagates it, but may only be wholesale. Call before you go.

Thanks very much for your kind reply - I'm a garden designer looking to create something similar in NW England. So, by 'plantings', you mean the larger grasses and shrubs and both these and the ground cover plants were planted into soil, mulched and they then sprawl over the gravel? Looks lovely!

That's correct. The ground covers were planted in fertile mulch. The rest 1 g. and 5 g. shrubs grass's and plants were pit planted. The path was made as infertile as possible but the ground covers spread out and over the edges. Most of the plantings will work in NW England. We have a similar climate here but with a marine influence.

I live on the North Shore of LI as well and have a ton of different types of Thymus, they are all doing great here, they are drought resistant and have a nice smell to them. I bought them at Martin Viette Nurseries, they carry them every spring in different types and colors.

Hi There, sorry for the late response, but I just returned from a week out of the office. Thyme can be planted almost any season. It is rated for all zones so this shouldn't be a problem for you. It does need water in the hottest areas, and especially if you are establishing it now. Be sure to give it a good soaking once a week. Thymus serphyllum is usually planted in 4" pots at about 18" on center. Good luck.

2-3 months is excellent. i am in Ontario Canada, zone 5 (i think Cdn. zones are different than U.S. ones though. 2-3 in Ontario is perfect, maybe i will try planting it and see if that's what I get. I am concerned otherwise that it looks messy or stringy afterwards. do you know? once blooms finish, is it then just greenery, or ?
thanks!

Here is a list of nurseries that sell ornamental grasses in the Virginia Beach area. Take the photo you like with you and talk to them about what similar grasses you can plant (or Lowes etc). The nursery can help you identify the purple low growing ground cover,, too: it may be Purple Verbena (read about it here and also scroll to the comment from Hampton VA http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/251/#b ) Nursery can help you with a tree, too, but this multi trunk olive tree might be nice (Olea europae "Majestic Beauty" ) or a similar multi-trunk tree. http://www.lgyp.com/Ornamental-Grasses-in-Virginia.htm

The Thymus serphyllum should grow in your region. It takes very little water and tolerates light foot traffic. A slow growing works well in a seashore planting such as this. I suggest pinus contorta.

Thymus serphyllum should survive there. It does well in drought, so the wet summers may give it some trouble. I think if you plant it in a sunny, sandy loam it would survive. Try a small one to see the success and habit of the plant and let me know if it works.

The purple flowers are Thymus serphyllum, red mother of thyme. The plant in the center is blue oat grass, Heliotrichon sempervirens. The taller grass behind these are Miscanthus gracillimus, Maiden grass and also siberian iris, iris siberica. Hope this helps.

Hi There. The Thymus serphyllum is one of the perfect plants. It is evergreen, year around, green in summer, turning bronzy in fall. It can be easly mowed at 3". If you mow it after the bloom, it tidies it up spent flowers and encourages growth. It doesn't like too much water, it doesn't like fertilizer and can burn. It also can take light traffic, and like most thymes it is fragrant and you can use it for cooking.

There are many native plants ideal for your area. One of the most forgiving is the Oregon grape, Mahonia aquifolium. There are many varieties but the native one is tough, evergreen, sun or shade, salt tollerant and blooms with bright yellow flowers, followed by edible berries that are blue, (they are sour and have a big seed). The birds often get a little looped on the fermented berries in the fall.

This is a medium shrub. There are many more natives that work in your yard, from low ground covers to trees, sun or shade. If you give me a setting or range of sizes I can help more, or you can contact me at, www.Scott@Lankfordarchitecture.com

Hello Scott,
Again, love much about this design photo. My question is.....can I use many of your selected plantings in Southern IN. We've purchased a 2.5 acre lot that offers a slight gradual slope from the NE corner to the SW corner. The lot is surrounded by woods. Plenty of deer, wildlife. We plan to place the house approximately mid-way to give us a reasonable amount of space in back for family entertainment and outdoor privacy, similarly in front without too much front yard to mow! My husband and I are retired so I thought "terracing" would minimize the areas that need mowing. My main question is can I use the plants you've described in my location. We have plenty of lakes and one within 2 miles of the house....however, not on the water. It's Lake Monroe - which is a reservoir - not salt water. .........
I like your work.......too bad you're so far away.

Inviting :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Genevieve Schmidt added this to Breeze Into Coastal Landscapes
This curvaceous walkway brings to mind the meandering path of a small river flowing into the bay. The ornamental grasses and thyme make a natural accompaniment, as they both have a sense of flow and movement.
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 Ways to Design an Alluring Backyard
3. Create a beautiful approach. I love the partially hidden aspect of this beachy seating area. Lots of gardens have two strategically placed Adirondack chairs, but rarely has this familiar pairing been so alluring. An opening in the tall grasses offers a glimpse of the seating area — a safe promontory at the edge of the sea.Sense of place is amplified by the crunchy pebbled pathway, the soft mounds of grasses and ground covers that encroach on either side, and the pleasing knowledge that one will soon gaze upon the water at the end of this journey.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Coastal Garden Style
The loose, sandy soil of the seaside allows for great drainage, but it also means that nutrients are quickly lost. In nature, this can mean plants that are widely spaced rather than densely packed. But a spare look doesn't have to mean monotone, especially when you're in charge of the space. In this garden, purple ice plants lining the path to the sea's edge lead your eye to the sitting area and invite you to explore. The entire space resembles the natural bluffs beyond, with just a bit more planning and control than nature usually provides.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Hardscaping Shows Its Soft Side
This gravel path leads to the desired destination, at low cost and with nominal environmental impact. Can’t you hear the crunch of the gravel underfoot and feel the warmth it gives off? And wouldn’t a heavily built path look out of place in this setting? Select locally sourced gravel to lighten your footprint even more, with the added benefit of giving the composition a sense of place.
Genevieve Schmidt added this to 8 Ornamental Grasses for Coastal Gardens
This landscape features two favorite coast-loving grasses. The smaller grass in the foreground is blue oat grass, Helictotrichon sempervirens, which is an evergreen sun-loving grass that demands good drainage but is otherwise unfussy. The only maintenance blue oat grass needs is to have its foliage combed every few months to remove the beige leaves. To comb, put on rubber gloves and run your fingers through the grass. The old leaves will stick to the rubber and come out easily.The second type of grass in this shot is maiden grass, Miscanthus sinensis or "Gracillimus". This grass reaches about 5 feet tall and wide, and so makes a bolder statement in the landscape. The purple flower plumes in fall are a wonderful accent when seen against a coastal sunset. Unfortunately, maiden grass isn't evergreen and must be cut back to 6 inches tall in late winter or early spring.More:5 Hot Cool-Season Grasses5 Smokin' Warm-Season Grasses
Red Mother of Thyme (Thymus serphyllum) grows well in a variety of climates, including the often harsh environment found along the coastline. For the best show, give these plants lots of sun, just a little water and a place to show off!
Here is another variation: a lake of purple with a single bridge across it, made by planting waves of purple on either side of the path. Again, notice the grasses dotted throughout, giving structure to the planting. Without these accents, a mass planting simply looks like a formal mass of plants as opposed to a more natural and flowing form.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to Pathway Plantings That Please the Senses
Creeping mother of thyme is a favorite low spreader and can even withstand foot traffic. Other plants that gracefully sprawl include lamb's ears, dianthus and cranesbill geranium.
Matthew Cantwell added this to How to Design a Coast-Loving Garden That Lasts
Plants can be aranged to give a dry-creekbed appearance, highlighting arid coastal conditions.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Blue Oat Grass
How to use it. This particular grass is a delight when massed, used in a container or used as an accent plant. The soft, fine evergreen foliage also creates a soft and soothing foundation for companion flowers.
9. Secret pathway with a stunning view. A simple stone pathway leads to a perfect waterfront view. Fragrant thyme and beautiful Siberian irises complete this dreamy outdoor space.
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Wild Gardens Bring Excitement and Beauty to Landscapes
Masses of blue oat grass and thyme here are simple enough to not distract from the grand landscape beyond. This beautiful composition is simple and affordable. The experience of moving through tall grasses and watching their movement in the wind is among my favorites in the garden. Their height and density act as a living wall that is a perfect solution for defining and privatizing a space.

If we still lived on the coast, this would be stunning...wonder if it is adaptable...in principle...to our woodland setting?

Creeping mother of thyme is a favorite low spreader and can even withstand foot traffic. Other plants that gracefully sprawl include lamb's ears, dianthus and cranesbill geranium.

Blue oat grass and Thymus serphyllum The Thymus serphyllum is planted in 4" pots 18" on center in fertile mulch. It is important to prepare the base by cleaning out the existing bed of all weed stock by Roundup or hand removal. Once the bed is smooth and graded to 3" below the finish grade, apply preen or corn gluten as a pre-emergent before applying 3" fertile mulch. Plant the Thyme in the mulch and re apply Preen over the top. Thymus serphyllum can be found at several local nurseries. Swanson's in Ballard usually carries it. T & L Nursery in Redmond propagates it, but may only be wholesale. Call before you go.
