“We are so lucky to live on this beautiful island surrounded by water. The L.I. Sound, Atlantic Ocean and the many bays, inlets and tidal waterways have always been a place for many of us to leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get a chance to reconnect with nature. When the magnificent serenity of the sea intertwines with our private paradise, what could be better?

Seaside gardens have a unique plant community that thrives in this beautiful, yet unforgiving environment. Creating seaside gardens with a view of the water, is a perfect way to blend serenity and nature. To me, this is the ideal relaxed garden setting. Whether in a hammock, beach chair or on a blanket, a seaside garden is a great way to disconnect, recharge and enjoy the natural beauty of the Long Island seashore.”  Sal Masullo, Hicks Landscapes Designer
