For the last year I’ve been working on this wonderful project in Brookline. The design, featured in my July Newsletter, creates a useable front yard sitting and garden space for a multi-generational family. As the sunniest space on the property we created a patio and raised plant bed in the front, and a raised vegetable garden along the side yard.
If you look towards the back of this picture, you can see the beginning of the vegetable garden on the side yard. We have 3 raised cedar beds, two of which have trellises which serve the dual purpose of providing screening from the neighbor’s driveway, and providing lots of vertical space for climbing vegetables. The raised beds are from Naturalyards, and they ship in flat boxes for easy assembly on site.
The garden, tended closely by my client’s mother, grows an exotic array of vegetables that aren’t easy to find in your typical grocery store!
I love this garden, because its such a great example of how much you can grow in a limited space. Using raised beds, pots and trellises, this family has lots of great food to enjoy, right from their side yard in Brookline!
