By Manuela Williams Figuring out what you’re going to grow where and how much space to put in between vegetables can be a daunting task even for experienced gardeners. As I discussed in Gardening 101- The Basic of Planning Your Vegetable Garden,  the first thing you need to do is find a good site for your garden. There are many features that I like about this site like the weekly reminders, that you can choose containers (!)  and that it gives you an estimate of your different growing seasons based on historical data. This interactive vegetable garden planner lets you draw out your vegetable garden with drop and drag feature. What I liked about this one is that it has short informative videos on Square Foot Gardening & Succession Planting.
This website has already made up vegetable garden plans like the All American (example down below) or the High Yield which all come with a shopping list, planting guides and layout.
Or you can use Design Your Row or Bed option by dropping and dragging your vegetables for a custom plan. This is the easiest and most user friendly of the three online garden planners but only has just the most common types of vegetables available for adding to your planner. There are a few more online planners available but these are the first three that I’ve tried. They have plans for container gardens so I don’t think most people would consider 9 raised beds a small garden! I try to plan my garden out in a notebook each year to make sure I’m rotating my crops.
I like to think that I would keep up with an online gardening planner but alas, my computer screen doesn’t reflect well outside in the garden, ha ha!

If you want to add a wonderful country touch to your garden, building a country style fence is not as difficult, or as expensive as it might seem. Measure the height you want the posts, and then add 18 inches to 2 feet, depending on how heavy your freeze is in the winter. Attach with nails or screws whatever material you chose to use as pickets to the cross piece. 12 Creative DIY Compost Bin IdeasIf you are a gardener, chances are you have thought about starting a compost bin. 9 Clever DIY Ways for a Shady Backyard OasisIt's pretty tough to enjoy summer activities in a backyard that bakes in the afternoon heat.
Once you pick your plants, it gives you their spacing and when to plant them based on your location. Are you old school paper and pencil or are you going to embrace garden technology this year when planning your vegetable garden?
I do love sketching garden plans with my pencils & colorful markers, but am so happy to have online help as this is still all so new to me. Right now I have four raised beds, but there is room for a couple more, and I want to use the space in the most efficient way I can.
That’s not something we usually grow in Nebraska, but I remember when they gave us a peanut plant in school and my dad gave me a little spot by the back door to plant it. I have a friend that LOVES using it though and I believe that whatever helps you get the job done is the right way to go!
I always torment myself trying to plan the garden, and some expert tools could really be a blessing.

If you are concerned about persistent mole or groundhog incursions, then you can put a screen across the bottom before putting in the soil. Our horticultural greenhouses are constructed with solid mahogany glass roof systems or from a fully aluminum frame.
Regardless of your space requirements we have a room to fit with designs varying from Victorian to contemporary. If by any chance it violates your copyright, we will delete it immediately upon presented proof.
Pressure treated 2×4a€™s wona€™t rot quickly, and will give you the most bang for your buck.


Use a measuring tape to mark equal distances that are pleasing to your eye; remember, this is a country fence. Plant a climbing plant at the base to add old fashioned country charm such as morning glories or a climbing rose. No need for permission to pin or to feature 1 or 2 pictures with full watermarks intact that link back to the original project. This year I’m trying something new to help me plan my vegetable garden – online garden planners! I also found some brilliant tips over at the blooming oasis which helped plan out vegetable gardens.
A garden hose can be connected to the unit, or the hose adaptor can be removed so the irrigation unit can be tied into your existing irrigation system with piping. All of our Greenhouse construction considers the important aspects of glass specification, heating, ventilation, cooling, and air movement to insure a comfortable year round environment for your plants and for you. Using the same level and another person to help, pour the quick setting cement into each post hole. You can use traditional pickets, branches or even scrap wood all cut to the same size as the a€?picketsa€?. With just a couple of sections of fence instead of a whole row of expensive fencing, youa€™ve added a wonderful architectural element to you garden! You would run this across the bottom and up the sides (inside the walls) a few inches, then staple it to the wood. Such as garden pots and containers, they are not only served for the flowers, but also a beautiful landscape of the garden. So we chose to add just two sections of fencing to the corners of the front drive as accents. Have your helper hold the post straight (check with a level) and slowly add water as directed on the package.
Replacing the boring terracotta pots with some interesting DIY pots will make your garden be wonderful.
We used 8 foot 2×4a€™s that we cut in half, so each post hole was 4 feet apart, on the outside. Have your helper continue to hold the posts until the cement starts to set, should take only a few minutes. It will arrange the plants for you if you want or you can do it yourself with a drag and drop feature. There is no need to buy from stores, because old tires, boots, cabinets, wine barrels, and more bizarre items can be turned into garden pots that will amaze you. Using the low cost materials and keeping the amount of fencing small but in a focal point area kept costs way down. On another note, I love your farmhouse style kitchen and the sign you got for your anniversary is fantastic!
