Plan Description

The suburban food gardener needn't worry about turning the backyard into unattractive rows of vegetables when following this innovative design. Here is a backyard that looks good enough to eat! It is designed to produce abundant and fresh home-grown produce and still be a beautiful spot for relaxing and entertaining. Though the main feature of the property is a central vegetable garden, many of the landscape plants used in the border plantings and along the house produce edible fruit as well. These plants were especially chosen because they can perform double duty, acting both as ornamentals and as food-producers. The vegetable garden is accessible by way of a short path around the lawn. The garden is designed in a round form for greater interest and has gravel paths dissecting it for ease of working and harvesting. Even in winter, when bare of plantings, this garden will continue to be attractive because of its geometrical layout. The designer has left the choice of vegetables up to the gardener and chef, but there is plenty of space to grow the family's favorite choices. Off to the side, a storage shed provides needed space for storing gardening paraphernalia. A compost pile is conveniently located behind the shed. The outdoor kitchen area on the brick patio contains a barbecue, a sink and a serving cabinet that doubles as a bar. Covered with an overhead lattice to set off the chef's culinary preparation area, this part of the patio provides a comfortable spot in which to lounge and dine out of the sun. For sunning, move out from under the lattice and soak up the rays.
