Plan to be impressed with the Lowcountry farm houses with large porches and ceiling fans, steps leading to the porches and rocking chairs and plants galore. Inside, many homes on Plant Lane boast hardwood floors, fire places, modern kitchens, and beveled-glass front doors. This neighborhood is aptly named because of the native plants for landscaping found in Sea Pines: grasses such as Soft Rush, Maidencane, Wild Rice, Spikerushes, Woodgrass bulrush, and Rushes. Over long periods of time, the native plants have adapted to Lowcountry climate. They are drought-tolerant and can help save money and conserve water. Many plants tend to be resistant to insects and larger animals, which saves money and environmental damage by reducing the need for pesticides or predator exclusion systems. Using native plants in the landscape also helps provide wildlife with habitat and preserve the Lowcountry’s “sense of place.”
Additional Information About Sea Pines Plantation On Hilton Head Island, SC
Sea Pines owners enjoy residency in a full-service plantation with a broad array of amenities. Three shopping districts exist within the Sea Pines gates at Sea Pines Center, the shops at Harbour Town, and also at South Beach Marina Village. Additionally, Park Plaza shopping center and the commercial district at Sea Pines Circle are just outside Sea Pines main gate. Going back into the plantation, the first amenity that one comes upon is the Sea Pines Forest Preserve - Greenwood entrance - which is a 605+ acre nature preserve filled with trails, lakes, historic sites, and more undisturbed nature than is available elsewhere on the island, and particularly behind gates. Further in on Greenwood Drive, the visitor will come upon the Six Oaks Cemetery, Lawton Stables and animal petting farm, and Heritage Farms, where garden plots of varying sizes are available to residents on a first-come/first-serve basis for those that are inclined to do their own planting. Sea Pines has two beach clubs, both on Sea Pines Drive: Tower Beach Club on South Beach is for owners only and the Sea Pines Beach Club, across from the Plantation Club, is for owners and guests (renters). Those desiring a historical perspective of Sea Pines would not want to miss the Stoney Baynard Ruins on Plantation Drive in the Heritage Woods subarea. More information can be found on the Sea Pines Property Owners Association web site: www.seapinesliving.com.
