High and Dry--25 Years on a Sand Dune

Jeff Mason
After moving to a new property in the middle of winter, Jeff's first shovel in the ground revealed a shocking surprise - SAND, and lots of it. Faced with this daunting challenge, Jeff had to come up with a strategy to create the garden he wanted. Jeff will share his trials, tribulations, live plants, dead plants and methods for creating a great garden in these harsh conditions.
