Outdoor Nautical Decor Photos, Plants for a Beach Theme

By

A beach theme with outdoor nautical decor can include salt-tolerant plants indigenous to your seashore and nautical yard signs, mailboxes and ornaments. Browse my beach-theme photos for landscape ideas to use in your own yard.

You don't have to live near the seashore to inject these nautical themes into your backyard landscaping. Beach landscape ideas work well in lakeside communities, too by association -- despite the fact that there are no real whales or lighthouses within hundreds of miles! Such details don't stop the true ocean-lover from decorating with beach themes. I've witnessed the use of outdoor nautical decor in yards located nowhere near water of any sort, whether fresh or salty.

If you don't live near the seaside (yet are attracted to nautical decor) and question whether a beach theme is appropriate for your landscaping, realize that it's not an all-or-nothing proposition. Try installing an artificial pond and decorating just that area of the yard with a beach theme.
