Vegetable Garden Design Ideas

A vegetable garden can be grown in your backyard, front yard or even on a balcony or little-used side yard, as long as there is plenty of sun exposure. There are many design and layout options for a vegetable garden. You may want to opt for raised beds so you can better control the quality of the soil. Or you may want to go with a beautiful kitchen garden that is as much a focal point as a place to grow edibles. Finally, if you are short on space, you may even consider growing vegetables in containers. With a little bit of thoughtful planning, vegetable gardens can be as beautiful as any flower garden. And with a lit bit of effort, you can maximize your garden’s productivity and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Outside of common belief, there are actually many ways to design a vegetable garden. With the proper design and maintenance, you no longer need to hide your vegetable garden away from view. In fact, a well-designed vegetable garden can be quite attractive as well as functional.

If your dog also loves the bounty of your garden, you have options. The classic set-aside vegetable garden, complete with a fence, will always work, but it may not be necessary. A low fence around a vegetable garden can be enough to keep even larger dogs out. They may be able to jump over it, but it might not occur to them.

Adding unique features into the vegetable garden layout plan also can add more interest. You might try incorporating a bench, garden globe, or various garden ornaments to serve as interesting focal points. Within my own garden, I transformed an old mailbox into a haven for birds. Use a trellis or even a ladder as support for vine-growing plants, beans, and tomatoes. Depending on your particular design, water features, such as fountains, can offer additional beauty as well.

Siting your garden. If you’re building new raised beds or using planter boxes that can be moved, make sure that your vegetable garden is in the right place. Specifically, make sure that it gets plenty of light. What direction does your garden face? In the Northern Hemisphere, south-facing yards and balconies get the most light, while north-facing gardens will almost always be shaded by comparison.

Design your garden each year so that crop rotation is implemented to prevent diseases from appearing throughout seasons. To accomplish crop rotation, avoid growing the same vegetable in the same location more than once every three years. To encourage ongoing succession within the garden, try to group crops with similar planting and harvest dates. For even more beauty and extended blooms, mix in flowers and herbs.

For people who have plenty of time and space, the traditional garden plot is acceptable. These garden designs can be created strictly with long rows or broken down into smaller ones. While traditional designs don’t always look like it, most can be a chore when it comes to the upkeep. To lessen some of the labor, however, mulch generously around crops as well as in between the rows to discourage weeds from eventually overtaking the garden.

Edible garden. Raised beds lend order and structure to a kitchen garden. Depending on the dimensions, they also can be kid and grandparent friendly. For example, this set of eight raised beds, beautifully constructed from ipe or similar hardwood lumber, has details like mitered corners and smooth hardware, making them suitable for youngsters who want to stand at the edge and harvest carrots or radishes to their hearts’ content.
