Tabletop Golf Garden

Fun, Space saving and easy to care for, Miniature, or tabletop gardens have taken the horticultural world by storm. 
While usually geared toward more traditionally feminine styling (teapots, flower fairies and gazebos) they can also be designed with more masculine appeal. 
A quick online search found dozens of fun versions perfect for his office, study or book shelf. Simply pick a theme, some easy care plants and accessories. Makes a unique gift for Father's Day or any day.

You'll Need
container of suitable size with drainage
soil appropriate for plants
small scale plant or plants
clean sand
sheet moss
small accessories to suit your theme
(I found cute golf accessories designed 
for cake decorating)
rocks, pebbles, other greenery
I started by planting the mini palm in one corner to allow room for accessories
I created a small well in the soil and filled with sand 
I then covered soil with sheet moss and arranged accessories
I created my own flag with craft paper and a bamboo skewer as I wanted a taller size than one provided
You can print a logo from a favorite course and attach to front of 
container as a fun personal touch

and its tee Time

These gardens can be customized to the recipients interests
golf, cars, boating, fishing?
