A container vegetable garden that's very easy to take care of and it keeps veggies that spread in their place! (Note: I have gone to all-container gardening in my drought-ridden Central Coast backyard! With water restrictions in place, it just doesn't make sense to spray water in the sand and hope the plants survive. This is a MUCH more effective way to conserve water, and still enjoy fresh veggies! ~SH)
This trick may seem contradictory, but we promise it works: Break up open areas of a small space so it feels larger. Here, a colorful bed of roses, annuals, and perennials effectively divides a small back yard landscape into attractive nooks.
