Longboat Key's Newest Landmark Home Landscaped, And Irrigated By Grants Gardens
Grants Gardens was part of an all-star team of contractors and designers tapped to build one of Longboat Key's most striking homes - Ohana.
Particular attention was given to the beach area to maintain a natural and sustainable landscape that would be in harmony with the native coastal ecosystem. The selected plants and palm trees are all chosen for both their ability to thrive in the hot sandy and salty micro climate of the beach as well as to provide a beautiful landscape.
Grants Gardens was selected to install the landscaping and irrigation system on this amazing home, working with renown landscape architect Raymond Jungles, FASLA to bring the vision of this remarkable home to life. Because the site is directly on the Gulf Of Mexico many considerations had been made to ensure the home would maintain a minimal impact on the environment yet be dramatic enough to create the enchanting atmosphere of Polynesia.
Grants Gardens worked closely with Raymond Jungles, and installed many hardy species that would be able to thrive in the arid sandy micro-climate of the shore along Longboat Key. Plant species to be installed along the shore included many native Florida plants such as Sea Oats, Flowering Dune Sunflower, Purple-Blossomed Railroad Vine and Spartinia. Away from the dunes, many large trees were selected both native and non-natives including Gumbo Limbo, Buttonwood, Moreton Bay Fig, Bizmark Palms as well as mainstays such as Cabbage Palms and Coconut Palms.
