Have you ever considered gardening, but were never sure where to start? Don’t worry. This is the case with many people. The fact is, gardening gives you plenty of options of what kind of plants to garden, if there will be vegetables or fruits, and how you are going to keep everything separated. One of the issues that people run into most when they first get started is keeping everything organized so they know what is where. This is often because they just pick a flower bed or area of the yard and start gardening.
However, square foot gardening may be the better option for a number of reasons.
This is a method in which the garden is separated by square foot sections and the beds are raised a bit off the ground. This makes it easier to maintain, saves you space, and can keep your produce and plants organized. Even better, you don’t have to worry about digging, pulling weeds, or tilling the ground.
You would simply build a box with some weed cloth and add grids to make sure each square foot is sectioned off for a specific part of the garden. You may want to have strawberries in one, tomatoes in another, and herbs in another. Whatever your choice, square foot gardening is probably the best option to make sure you know where everything is going and you are allowing your garden to grow in an efficient way.
