Coastal Nautical Garden Decor & Landscaping Ideas with Succulents & the Sea

Nadia of Garden Bliss loves the sea and succulents and created an inspiring coastal nautical garden with sea inspired landscaping.

Coastal Nautical Garden Decor & Landscaping Ideas
The inspiration for her coastal nautical landscaping idea in her own words: "A long time ago in a land far, far away… I became a certified PADI scuba diver in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico. The beauty of the desert sand and cactus meeting right up against the big blue ocean is one of those vacation experiences that will forever be a picture memory in my mind. I decided to create a mini visual display of that memory in my cactus/aloe/ succulent garden on my side yard."

Her coastal nautical garden landscaping design is an under water world in the midst of succulent plants. You find shells, starfish, glass floats, pebbles and other beach treasures.

Coastal Garden Landscaping Idea with Stepping Stones
The coastal nautical garden also includes hand painted stepping stones. "Prop them next to a fence or planter for an artistic flair, or sink them into the ground and create a colorful path," Nadia suggests. Nadia is working towards a Certificate in Horticulture with intentions to Garden Coach in the near future.
