We love succulent gardens! While pretty much any combination of succulents in a gardens will likely look amazing because of their natural beauty and easy relationships to one another, there are some great how-to articles out there to help you go from good to breathtaking… Sunset magazine, which we adore, published an article on one of our favorite things – how to plant a succulent garden inspired by the ocean!

“Succulents are … as jewel-toned as shells, sculptural as seastars, or fluttery as sea anemones. … The plantings create a spot-on connection between land and sea, as though they simply arose from the waves complete, like Venus on the half-shell, to their perch atop [a] bluff. [Succulents] thrive on little water and stay low enough to frame [a] coastal view without blocking it.” ( via Sea-Creature Succulents – Sunset.com.)
