A square foot garden takes 80% less space than a traditional row garden. It also uses 80% less water and requires 90 % less work. Imagine not having to weed your garden! Square foot gardening is not done in traditional rows but rather in groups. For example, A 4x4 box can have 16 squares in it. Each square measures 12" by 12". In just one of those squares you can plant 16 carrots or 9 beans, 4 spinach plants, or 4 head of lettuce. It can hold over 100 spring vegetables and plants. You will not waste any seed because your planting is done more deliberately and you can save your extra seeds to plant in the following Spring. Placement of your square foot gardens will open up many avenues to the way you care for, enjoy, appreciate, and harvest it. Choose a nice sunny location that invites warm rays for 6-8 hours a day. Lay your square foot garden out in our square or rectangular boxes separated by walking aisles. Square foot gardening truly makes the most of limited space especially for apartment and condo dwellers. Your square foot garden can grow vegetables on patios and decks. Our boxes can also be raised for the elderly and for wheelchair access to the desired height.
