Bringing the Beach Home with Me

I am lucky to live only two hours from the beach and every time I drive home after vacation I'm so relaxed and content that I wonder how I can bring a little bit of the beach back with me.  In "My Beach Life" I will look at all the ways to bring that beach feeling home.

First up:  Beach Landscaping
Sea oats, fountain grass and varigated switch grass look stunning by the water.  Can I achieve the same effect at home?  How about flowers?  What grows best by the beach?  Hibiscus for sure; but also zinnias, asters, and marigolds.  What other elements might suggest a house at the beach?

A trip to my local garden center is in order.  I'll let you know how it goes!
