    Are you wanting to do a food garden or flower garden? If it's for food, you will likely have to build a garden area and have good soil/dirt hauled in. I also live in a sandbox, but I don't have a food garden, just flowers and plants and most of those do fine in the sand. One of my neighbors built raised beds and had filled it with a good soil and another neighbor just had a truckload of dirt hauled in and made a large fenced in garden area on the side of his house. I guess it'll depend how big you want the area. Previous neighbors did warn us though, that eventually the dirt will "sink" and sand will work it's way back through. :/

    Raised flower or plant beds sounds like it would work.... have to bring in soil to fill them.

    Container garden, with indigenous bushes/cacti between. Also pavers in green. Fakes your mind.
