Side Yard Kitchen Gardens

A couple of summers ago I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit Portland-based garden designer, Darcy Daniels, beautiful garden. Darcy transformed a basic, boring yard into a thriving garden when she bought her home. The coolest part of the garden is the side yard, which instead of the usual driveway or weedy grass, features tall zig zagging raised beds and a pretty crushed gravel pathway.
Darcy manages to pack a lot into a narrow area by utilizing the vertical growing space. The beds back into a fence that screens out the neighboring yard and does double duty as a trellis for climbing crops, including tomatoes, squash, and fruit trees. Such an inspiring use of what often becomes a throwaway space in most yards!
