planting around dock on the lake
Suggestion on planting around dock on the lake. What would grow well?
Recommendations for plantings around a lakeside dock depend on many factors including exposure to sunlight and soil type. Is the site wooded right up to the lake or rather open? Is the soil gravelly, rocky, sandy, clay, or loamy? The main consistent factor is that the site is likely to fairly consistently moist, so choose plants that grow well in moist sites. You also likely want plants that will remain relatively low-growing.
