Section 1 Garden Pictures

Our original (Section 1) garden used the Square Foot Gardening philosophy. We filled the beds with Mel’s Mix – 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 compost and 1/3 vermiculite. This was a great soil mix, however it was cost prohibitive to continue as our needs grew and we were ready to increase the size of the garden. At this point, we were using double grind mulch in our walkways to smother the grass. I enjoyed the neat and tidy look of this garden, and it is a great option for those who desire something smaller.
