DIY: Potted Beach Garden

If you yearn for the beach but live miles inland, you can re-create the look easily in a pot for your patio, porch or balcony.  All you need is the following:

— a low, wide pot or bowl.  The one shown here is glazed clay, but I think a beach garden would look great in this rustic Scalloped Edge Metal Pot from Smith & Hawken (at Target).
— 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
