Vegetable Garden Layouts and Designs
|My 2012 vegetable garden layout is an adaptation of the 2011 version. It adds a perimeter bed of about 2' in width to the outside edge of the garden.|
|My 2011 vegetable garden layout is representative of the parterre garden style. It's a French style of potager or kitchen garden. The idea is to make it into something both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional.|
|Raised Bed Vegetable Garden Layout|
This is my current vegetable garden design and seems to work well so far. The pathways are 2' wide everywhere except the middle north to south walkway.
|Raised Bed Vegetable Garden Layout for 2010|
This is mostly the same as my previous design but I have changed the large ground beds into 10'x2' raised beds for easy access for my children. I also added a long strawberry bed for perennial crops.
|Vegetable Garden Layout with Raised Beds|
This layout uses an "L" shape for each of the raised beds. The beds are actually made from 3 different beds - 2 long and one square.
|Parterre Vegetable Garden Layout - Raised Beds|
This more formal look for a vegetable garden is great for small gardens and even for small yards. It would also work well for formal flower beds.

Companion planting can be a good way to prevent disease and pests from harming your garden. This layout is one possible idea from many potential ways of designing a garden for companion planting.
|Fall Vegetable Garden Layout for a 4'x8' Raised Bed|
This is my concept for gardening in the fall. A single 4'x8' bed is enough for our family of four and it produced lettuce all the way into December.
|10'x2' Raised Bed Design|
The goal of this raised bed is to better reach the middle of the bed from each side. It should be a good design for people with smaller arms like children.
