Bring the beach to your backyard at Eden Beach, Jindalee

Choosing Eden Beach as your new home location means you love the beach and coastal living as much as we do. The sounds of the waves hitting the sand, children splashing in the water and heat of the sun setting on a summer's evening are some of the thoughts that spring to mind when we picture the Eden Beach Foreshore.

The Eden Beach team are experts at designing masterplanned communities that work with nature and the Australian climate. That’s why, together, we created this article full of helpful tips and tricks to help you bring the tranquillity of the Eden Beach coastline to your new home’s backyard without breaking the bank.

Eden Beach has wonderful surrounds filled with ocean views but living so close to the ocean can be tough on our plants. Keep the Eden Beach surrounds in mind when you plan your landscaping. Choosing coastal shrubs like succulents and grass varieties like Orange Sedge and Fountain Grass are fantastic options. Not only will the combination look lush and green, but your garden will be low maintenance and full of colour all year round.

Your garden isn’t complete without somewhere to sit and relax while enjoying the beautiful surrounds of your completed garden. You may prefer outdoor dining, sun loungers or bean bags - but whatever the tone you have in mind for your backyard, keep coastal blues, pale greens and whites in mind for your colour palette.

In sandy areas like Eden Beach, plants may struggle to grow due to the sandy soil. After you have planted your plants in soil, continue to add organic material and lots of layers of soil to provide nutrients for your plants to grow and prosper. Continuing to add layers of soil in the months to come will also increase the soil's water retention ability.

In coastal areas, typical material choices may be tricky to maintain when used on paths. Embrace the coast and look for materials that compliment Eden Beach’s sandy structure. Granite sands and crushed shell blends can provide your pathway with more longevity than a mulch or dark coloured surface that will be sandy in no time!

If you have little ones, add a sandpit to your outdoor oasis. Beach accessories can be easily added to provide hours of entertainment and the all-important true beach experience all year round.

Decking is a fantastic way to add functional coastal style to your backyard. Man-made recycled plastics can provide more longevity than its natural timber alternative. Choose a soft grey or bright white to complete your coastal aesthetic.

Play with the lines in your garden with feature stones and pathways. Mirror the feel of the waves at Eden Beach with curved paths to add depth and texture.

Coastal winds can make a perfectly preened hedge hard to achieve. Embrace the natural look and choose plants tolerant of natural dry conditions. Eucalyptus is an excellent choice for a rustic, coastal look full of charm and character.

 

Above all, don’t be afraid to experiment. Your garden is yours to enjoy!
