Gardening your way

It's Time to Start Your Garden

No matter the space, there is a way to have a garden. It doesn’t matter if you live in an apartment or have an acre or more. There’s always a way.


Vertical gardening is a great idea for patios, balconies, in windows or to maximize space. The ideas are endless. Recycled products make good planters. I personally use old tires, cement blocks, leftover tin, water barrels, over the door shoe organizers, wire racks, pretty much anything I can find to plant in. You can hang soda bottles in a window, make a herb garden out of leftover or old gutter.


Companion planting is another way to maximize small spaces. Along with giving you a jump start on pest control. Not all combinations will help with pests, but will help with the nutrients the other needs. 


Laying out your plans for your garden beforehand will help to figure out how many seeds you need and the best way to arrange your garden. There are ways to control weeds, to save time later.


Ideas For Gardening Your Way

Here are some ideas to consider. As time goes on, and I get or see new ideas, I will post them for you. If you have any ideas, I would be happy to see them. 

  • Raised Beds

    Raised beds may be the easiest way to have a garden, if you don't overthink it.

  • No Dig Gardens

    This is a great way to garden on rocky soil, or if you don't want to till.

  • Companion Planting

    A great way to get more from your space, and they can help each other out.

It’s all about gardening your way. It doesn’t matter if you’re growing for 1 person or a dozen. Eat it fresh or preserve it for later. A good way to have vegetables all winter.

  • Indoor gardening

    Use the windows where you live. If you don't have any outdoor space, you can still grow food.

  • Deck, Patio & Porch Gardening

    A garden tower or trellis would work well in this space. You can grow more than you think in a vertical garden.

  • Think Hydroponics

    No soil required! You can use a hydroponics tower or have 2. This takes a little more research or knowledge base.

There are NEVER any gardening mistakes, only experiments!


Consider recycling

Recycling is a great way to have ready-made raised beds, or get materials for gardening your way. Depending on where you live, you might be able to get pallets at a local auto parts store, hardware store, or anywhere products are shipped to.


Sometimes you can get lucky if someone is remodeling. You might be allowed (ask first) to have some of the things being torn out. For instance, did you ever think to use an old cabinet for a raised bed? For the price of a can of spray on rubber, you could coat 2 or 3 cabinets.
