Keyholes, Raised Beds and Maximising Gardening Space – 3 Hyper Efficient Garden Layouts

2 Replies

Ally and I have decided that raised beds are the way to go for our garden this year.

With only a limited amount of yard space our thoughts turned to how best to maximise the growing space.

I started with Mel Bartholomew’s 4′x4′ square garden, a size determined mostly by the reach of an average gardener.

But these beds require a pathway around them of anything from 2 – 4 feet for access. It is a pretty extravagant requirement, that can be reduced somewhat by making 4′ x 8′ beds or even 4′ x 12′.

A great idea to reduce these paths is what keyhole gardens (and American suburbs) do: incorporate a cul de sac into the scheme of things.
