When you are into designing a vegetable garden just remember a vegetable garden is always evolving

     A vegetable garden evolves with the seasons, so there is nothing really permanent when you are designing a vegetable garden. Except maybe the borders and even that is debatable. I use trickle or drip irrigation pipes that I roll out over the beds and even they are not permanent. If you make up a

wooden frame for a raised bed then that is permanent but when you are turning your lawn into vegetables think seasons and evolving. 

When you start out with vegetables and you want to design a vegetable garden start down the back of your yard. 

     To grow vegetables you need water and sunlight and some ground to plant the seed and that is it. The rest is all secondary so don’t worry about it just get on with planting your vegetable seeds or plants. To start I mow the lawn as short as possible. Then I roll out the irrigation pipes about a foot apart and plant directly into the grass. 

I prefer a cover crop to cover the lawn so that usually means planting spinach seedlings about 6 inches apart or poking a seed in the ground. 

     Then I start the irrigation pipes and see what happens. Any other vegetables I like and want to grow I plant in the garden. The idea of the spinach is to cover the grass and hopefully kill it as now grass is a weed.

I will not sell, give away or rent your email address.

     To mark out the vegetable garden I run a  piece of string about a foot away from the irrigation pipes and that leaves me with a bed about a yard or meter wide with two irrigation pipes. And that is your first vegetable garden.

     Check out our Vegetable Gardening page and see what you think, but now is the time to stop thinking and just throw a few seeds around the house to see what happens.


Thank you for your time
