Do this in front yard. Potager - Kitchen garden at Bolen residence. LOVE the use of the large pots to control the amount of water or nutrients herbs need as opposed to the vegetables! "This raised-bed kitchen garden was absolutely stunning and made great use of a narrow space that was formerly used as a dog enclosure. The space was designed by John Fluitt, an Oklahoma landscape designer."
What can be done with a small yard, a shed & creativity: A prefabricated shed, customized with French doors & a roof that looks thatched. 2 architectural mirrors create a trompe l'oeil window effect. 4 raised, willow-trimmed beds filled with vegetables & flowers. Plot is just 25 feet wide x 120 feet deep. (Country Living)
I am looking forward to building my own garden this spring. I'll need a raised bed because the soil in my backyard is full of rocks and is too hard. I love the look of these beds, and that they're high enough you're not on your knees all day.
Most of the 15-by-40 space is dedicated to test planting for their company, Aloe Designs. The pair particularly likes to test different organic growing methods for edibles and try out exotic and sun-loving plants to see if they can make it through a season in rainy Vancouver.
