Norman and Sylvia Samet moved in September 2001 into their Longboat Key home. The couple spends “six months and one day” each year on Longboat Key. The rest of the year is spent in Greensboro, N.C.
The Samets consider their backyard to be an extra room of their home. They spend a great deal of time there with their next-door neighbors, so much time that they had Grant’s Gardens put in a pathway between the two backyards to make visiting easier.
The Samets keep many of their plants in pots or in planters mounted on the walls and surrounding the perimeter of their backyard.
Planting up a wall
The Samets have dressed up their walls with unique planters filled with a variety of different vines and flowers. Adam Kirkland of Grant’s Gardens said the wall planters dress up otherwise blank walls and are a great way to add color and texture.
