I often leave crop residues on the soil as a mulch and plant right through it. The red leaves of the runner bean provide your garden with some beauty and color as well. Instead, he instructs you to carefully plan your garden in 4'x4' plots. You can simply build the trellis next your property line and use it for a bit of privacy and relaxation. You could even add some full sunlight type plants to the mix if you plant them in containers so that you can move them to sunny areas when needed.

You will need a flexible container with good drainage, like plastic, grow bags or potatoes bags. If you have 16 square feet of space to spare for even one bed, I recommend Square Foot Gardening. The three crops benefit from each other, the corn provides a trellis for the beans to climb, the beans provide nitrogen for the corn and squash, and the squash helps prevent weeds from growing by blocking sunlight to the soil and creates a microclimate which aids at retaining water. This is a great idea for flowers or you could use those stumps for herb gardens as well.

Gilkeson holds a doctorate in entomology and has been educating gardeners through workshops and writing for more than 20 years. This means that there can be a supply of fresh greens and herbs for your kitchen and decor year-round. If you are planning to build raised beds, planting hedges around them will not only outline them and make them a great focal point, it will help to add a bit of greenery to your outdoor living spaces as well. If you have no yard whatsoever for gardening, window boxes are the perfect solution to give your home a bit of greenery and to save space. Generous applications of compost increase the nutrient- and water-holding capacity of sandy soils and improve the structure of clay soils. Even the green leaves of beets are edible, so nothing goes in vain.
