I'm thinking of going with mostly Profile mixed with some plain old 
silica sand. The sand should help weigh down the plants and break up the 
monotone of the Profile. The only thing cheaper than Profile is silica 
sand anyway ;) I just need to compare the colors to make sure it won't 
be too contrasty for my taste. I don't think so though. Wet sand is a 
fairly medium-dark color that shouldn't be too different in contrast 
from the Profile.
