Disadvantages of Coastal Living

Home and Garden - General

    Anodized Metals

    Anodized metal items will overcome your storage shed when you live on the coastal areas. The sea mist seeps into the most closed in areas and deteriorates them in short order. The best items to buy when living on the coastal regions are plastic or stainless steel that will not rust out when you want them most. Even zippers of suitcases cannot be trusted on the coast to not work after just a few short months. Heated storage areas will keep the precious things in good condition. Make sure you check your storage area frequently to see if you need to make changes.

    Flower Growth

    Some flowers just do not grow on the coastal regions. The winds are strong at times like the hurricane forces produce. When young flowers come up and the wind whips them, the plants cannot survive sometimes. Again the harsh winds that blow destroy many plants that are above ground trying to give you flowers. Bushes that bear flowers will blossom out and the growth might be stunted with the conditions on the coast as well. Keep the precious plants tied up or well protected by buildings to help them be able to survive the battering of the coastal conditions if you want flower growth.

    Drying Clothes Outdoors

    If you have a clothes line while living on the coast, you will need to use several cautions. First of all the sea mist comes in just about every night at 5PM. Unless the clothes are removed before this time, they will get dampened even though they were once dried by the western sun on the coast. Make sure the clothes line is a sturdy one since the wind can sometimes demolish a circular clothes line with clothes on it. If the clothes line is a rope, it will need to be tested every year to have withstood the winter conditions on the coastal area.

    Siding on Buildings.

    Air currents from the Ocean can really batter the south side of buildings on the coast. Preserve that southern exposure with yearly maintenance. Review the sidings on all structures on the coast to redo caulking too. Hinges on fences and buildings tend to rust and erode on the coast. Some of these might have to be replaced often to function well on the buildings and structures on the Ocean coastal community if you live there. Part time residents need to be mindful of the changes taking place when the residence is not lived in for months. Strong winds can raise havoc on the coast.

    Gardening Points

    If you are a gardener living on the coast you will benefit in so many ways and also not benefit too. One of the disadvantages of living on the coast is that the temperatures fluctuate at times and surprise the tender sprouts in the garden you just thought would be alright. It is wise to plant for summer at the end of May and rarely earlier. Even in the summer it is not uncommon for the temperatures to drop into the 40's at night. Covering tender growth could help them live. Many plants just do not produce for the gardener on the coast.
