I created this hillside vegetable garden from an area that was once neglected and unused. All organic and delicious!
Sugar snap peas grow on the arbors, but later will be replaced with cucumbers!
Front yard lawn conversion to edible garden with herbs and veggies and espaliered fruit trees as living fences. Why waste water on something you cant eat?
I like to incorporate edible plants and fruit trees in the landscape to get double use of my yard. Dwarf fruit trees in containers are a great space saver and display the fruit trees as focal points in the garden bed.
 Edible gardens can be beautiful and bountiful!
Bold, Red Raised Vegetable Planter! Gardening can be beautiful and bountiful. An artistic and colorful raised bed can serve as double duty garden decor. 
Dwarf Meyer lemon trees can be used as shrubs in the mixed garden bed to make the most of a small yard. There is always room for a fruit tree!

I am a professional garden designer, garden coach and garden television host who loves to feed people from the garden! My edible gardens are organic and I like to use the landscape space creatively so that even the smallest yards can have a productive vegetable garden and areas to sit, dine and relax in. With careful planning you can enjoy your own garden of Eden!

More to come! There is no greater pleasure than growing your own food and sharing it with others. Since I can't offer you a salad from my garden at least I can share photos of the goodies here on your site.
