Beach garden in a pot
Rob D. Brodman

Beach garden in a pot

If you yearn for the beach but live miles inland, you can re-create the look easily in a pot.

You'll need:

  • a low, wide pot or bowl, approximately 14 inches in diameter
  • potting soil
  • 3 small, slow-growing plants in 4-inch nursery pots
  • horticultural-grade washed sand (a 1-qt. bag is enough for a 14-inch pot)
  • small pieces of driftwood or other found objects
