Urban Gardens – 5 Steps to Make It Happen

(0 votes)

When you think of a garden in your backyard what do you see? Do you may envision a wide open space, lots of bare soil and hard packed paths between rows. Or maybe, you can see a messy access to the garden vegetable produce during a rain or even after a rain, mud caked boots, or maybe even a trail of thick mud shaped footprints running through your yard. That’s enough to put anyone off gardening.

Think again!

Urban gardening enhance the yard by providing more vegetation of varying colors. Imagine the taste and the benefits of fresh vegetables, minutes to the table. And then there is also the cost of the vegetables you won’t have to buy. That’s a win – win for you!

Have you have ever tasted garden fresh tomatoes, beans, peas or strawberries? If you haven’t, that’s probably why you still settle for store bought produce. Produce that is likely 4 to 6 weeks old, or even older, before it gets to your table. Even if you shop at a farmer’s market, it may be days or weeks before you use the produce. When the produce is in your garden, it is always fresh.

Think of the non-vegetables, like flowers or herbs, that you can mix in your garden for a splash of variety and color. Imagine the oohs and aahs you will get from admirers.

The great thing about urban gardens is that they don’t have to be laid out horizontally or all in one area. They can be vertical or in tiers, in pots or planters and scattered throughout the yard.

We have solutions that look great, maximize your backyard space, and allow clean access to the garden produce even in the middle of a down pour. Now is the time to start planning for next spring, getting things ready to plant as soon as possible in the spring.

Step 1

Decide what do you want to grow? What would you enjoy the most? What do you use most often that you would want be available as required? Make a list and prioritize.

Step 2

Determine the best containers to contain what you want to grow. Deep or shallow, planters, pots, tiers, or garden beds?

Step 3

Research the sun/shade requirements of the plants you want to grow to determine where in the yard they should be placed.

Step 4

Depending on the room available in the right place of the yard, pick the size of the containers you need to fill that space.

Step 5

After you place the containers where you want them to be, prepare them for next spring – adding appropriate soil, perhaps winter seeding or perennials if applicable and then relax and wait for spring!

It’s just that easy!

Pots for tomatoes, herbs, cucumbers, carrots, kale, lettuce and more.
