The kitchen garden might be the focal point of an all-season landscape or simply a basic vegetable patch. It’s a place to grow herbs, vegetables, and fruits, but it can also be a structured garden space, often with a design centered on repetitive geometric patterns.
A kitchen garden is a private, often small-scale garden whose purpose is to provide the owner with produce for cooking. Kitchen gardens can be anything from highly organized and ornamental plots in suburban yards to casual plantings around a shaded home-base in an inner city apartment building.
To design a kitchen garden, it is helpful to consider the size and location of the garden in relationship to where you will be cooking. A kitchen garden can save time, money, and provide nutritious homegrown produce. There are many possibilities in designing a kitchen garden; it does not have to look like everyone else’s kitchen garden.
