Answer: Sandy soil can be a boon or a bane, depending on the types of plants you want to grow. Sandy soil drains quickly but it doesn't hold nutrients for any length of time so you'll want to fertilize regularly during the growing season. I would plant on amending the soil with some organic matter to help it hold some moisture. Trees and shrubs will especially benefit because if the soil is moist deep below the roots, the roots will grow deeply. This will firmly anchor the plants in the ground and also make the more drought tolerant. Once you've amended the soil, you can plant nearly anything you'd like. Oleanders and razzleberry are good choices for your gardening region.
Enjoy your garden!
