If you wish your yard was a beach zen oasis then check out these 5 seaside landscaping ideas!

While the yards I featured on 10 Beach Yard Design Ideas evoke the beachy feeling with different design elements, from hammocks to outdoor murals to sheds, these yards are beach zen landscapes, complete with rocks, grasses, driftwood, shells, docks, boats, even a lighthouse. And in this case, a seagull! Via House to Home.

You can create a tranquil beach zen feature by building a rock pool and a dock-esque decked area. Then add a few seaside themed accessories, such as Coiled Rope. Also seen at House to Home.

This dock is decorated with buoys and belongs to an artist's home in Homer, Alaska. Go tour the entire Seaside Garden, it has a very cool driftwood ball sculpture in it.

We need to do something special in our courtyard. I wonder if I can find an old boat somewhere and talk hubby into hauling it home! Great ideas!
