Traditionally people have kept their vegetable gardens separate from the rest of their yard but, more and more people are integrating tomatoes, peppers and other types of veggies into their flower beds and landscaping plans. For those who don’t have room for a separate vegetable garden this works out to be a really good idea. Now you can have fresh veggies without the need of lots of land for growing.
If adding vegetables to your landscape designs is of interest to you then you might want to think of building raised boxes or tubs along a fence line or in the corners of a hedge row. Maybe different size boxes creating a terraced effect is just what your landscaping needs to give it new life. Raised or box vegetable gardens are not just for decks anymore they can make for some beautiful additions to your yard and provide your family with lots of fresh veggies come harvest time as well.
