Front yard vegetable garden 1

    Newer Older

    And people think front-yard vegetable beds are unattractive! We installed four beds, totaling about 150 square feet of growing space. Between the beds and along the front walk, we put in pea gravel paths. A stone walk, at the far end, adjoins a small flagstone patio from which to stage the gardening activities.

      That looks amazing. I was thinking of doing the same thing in my front yard, but wasn't sure how it would look or what people would think.

      The house is near a large city hospital, so there are lots of people walking by, many of whom take the trouble to compliment the owners on their new yard - and to talk gardening, of course. Part of the owners' intentions in building a front yard garden was to create a bridge to the neighbourhood, which seems to be working wonderfully!

      I love it when people who make good use of their front yards like this, and it looks wonderful :) I can't imagine why anyone would complain about growing food in your front yard when it not only looks lovely, but serves a purpose. Great looking garden here, I hope many people take note of this beautiful landscaping!
