I'm working on my gardening plan for our property near St Augustine that we'll be moving to in a few years. Like many people in FL, I've got this big sand mound (14x28) that I've got to deal with.

Since I plan on turning my back yard into my own botanical garden paradise, I'm wondering what I can do to make this area less of an eyesore. So what plants/grasses can I plant on top of the mound and what plants/bushes can I plant around the sloped perimeter?

Perennial peanut comes in different heights & lives nicely on my neighbors sand mound. Once established its almost indestructible (unless your chickens realize its tasty)!!!!
