Cottage Vegetable Garden Design

Small Gardens

Self-sustainability in this vegetable garden design

To create a garden based on maximising the areas for growing vegetables and fruit with paths to access them.

Landscaping and Planting

Self-sustainability is the driving force behind this design. The scheme is very much based on maximising the areas for growing produce, with a number of paths to access them. Softwood sleepers were used in the construction of the raised beds, and also to accommodate level changes. Traditional herringbone brick paths and riven sandstone flags work well to help achieve the rustic appearance required. A greenhouse was imperative for bringing on plants and giving protection through the winter. Evergreen hedging and shrubs gives the garden year round interest, with all remaining space reserved for maximum vegetable and fruit yields. Overflowing planters with an abundance of planted troughs, pots and sacs give this garden character and charm, which draw you in.
