There are so many wonderful vegetable garden ideas
If you want to grow a vegetable garden and add beauty to your backyard at the same time, you’ll love these ideas. Vegetable garden ideas for raised beds, urban small backyards, unique garden beds like metal and vertical gardening.
One thing to keep in mind when designing your own vegetable garden, is the type of garden beds you’d like.
Raised beds are common because they add more beauty and tend to be easier to up keep. There are many great plants to grow in raised beds, although taller crops like corn don’t do as well. I highly recommend adding flowers to your vegetable garden too. It makes it even more stunning!

When the season is done or you have to move, you can pack them up. If you get snowy or very rainy winters they’ll last longer placed in a garage over winter. These raised garden beds from Pannow are made of a proprietary fabric material. These beds are highly durable, UV resistant, with exceptional air flow. This helps the soil and root systems and allows excess moisture to easily drain away.

Although they take up more soil, they’re also taller for easier gardening and harvesting. The one below is from Mill Hollow Works.
