How to Build a Garden in a Square Meter

Do you think that gardening is not for you and your backyard is too small to grow anything but lawn grass? See how professional and amateur gardeners manage to make the most of their tiny garden beds. With our tips and tricks you can build a small but rich garden and enjoy fresh seasonal veggies of your own.

smartzune.com  shares some useful tips on how to make the most of a small piece of land and enjoy an abundance of fresh seasonal vegetables.

1. Choose the right plants.

Decide on the range of veggies you would like to grow in your garden. Cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, radishes, and herbs are just a few crops that can be easily planted and grown together. If you are a novice gardener, choose plants that do not need special care and grow well in the local climate.

It’s a good idea to plant crops that can produce many fruits on just one plant. For example, choose cherry tomatoes instead of big ones and you will be guaranteed plenty of tasty and sweet fruits with a little effort.

2. Plan and arrange

There are almost no restrictions on what to plant, but the layout of the vegetable garden is really important. It can be an ordinary garden bed or a raised garden bed. Choose a raised garden bed if you plan to grow root crops. Make sure this area gets enough sunlight during the day.

Split the garden bed into square segments that are the same size. As a rule each square meter of land can be divided into 9-12 square segments. Each crop is planted in its own segment in such a way that all the plants have space for growing and getting enough sunlight.
