You don’t need a lot of space to grow fresh vegetables, herbs, and fruits. You don’t really even need a garden. As long as you have some dirt, water, and sun, you can grow quite a variety of crops.
Having a small backyard shouldn’t stop you from growing any kind of produce that you want!
There are plenty of solutions for backyard gardening but a trellis and raised garden box combination is a very efficient example, especially for anything that likes to climb or needs support.
Cucumber, snap peas, green beans, tomatoes… ah, just think about that fresh, great tasting, organic food you can grow in a small area!
Another huge advantage of this system is that it makes harvesting a breeze. You can harvest from both the inside and outside of the trellis, and it’s really easy to see the fruits or vegetables.
If space allows, and you space the planters far enough apart, you’ll get a beautiful, shady spot to sit and read or simply listen to that produce growing 🙂
