Eco-Friendly Gardening Advice

Eco-friendly gardening is a rewarding and sustainable way to grow your own organic food, and it can lead to great garden savings.

In the traditional garden design, plants are lined up in a single row with a wide aisle between the rows, which means the majority of the space in your garden is used for walking rather than for growing. In wide row gardening, the dynamics are reversed and the majority of space is used for growing plants. Root crops work especially well in wide row gardening because they can be spaced fairly close together, and because the plants are not bushy, it is easy to harvest them.
