Good gardeners make the job look easy, yet in fact it takes lots of planning, digging and moving plants, and sometimes a few years of trial and error to get the plan right.
Start by looking at the whole landscape, take an inventory of the contours and natural patterns of the land, and how the weather plays a part in the success of your garden. Think about small rooms, and add more garden areas and plants over time. Enjoy the process, and don’t be in a hurry.
If you’d like a second option on your garden design, a set of or fresh eyes to see what you can do to possibly improve what you already have, or where to site a new kitchen garden, I offer a Landscape Design Consultation to give you a new way to look at your garden. I can do this long distance from pictures, or we can meet in person. Check out my lecture schedule to coordinate travel to your location.
Here are a few samples of the designs from my book, The Complete Kitchen Garden.
