Custom Garden Design:

  • Retro mint Vego containers that compliment the aesthetics of their house, with 42 sq. ft. of growing space
  • Mulch and wood edging allowed us to tuck this garden right along the driveway

Garden Installation Process:

This was a DIY garden that started with a consult. During the assessment process, we determined that the yard had very limited full-sun growing spaces. To give this kitchen garden the best chance at success, we decided to re-home the hosta plants that were lining the driveway. We moved the hostas to the back yard, and then the full-sun space was freed up for the kitchen garden.

We chose to go with Vego containers because it kept the aesthetic clean. The retro colors match the style of the house. The size of this garden isn’t too big, so it isn’t overwhelming for these beginner gardeners. Plus, the retro Vego garden containers make it easy to maintain the limited space of the garden area.  

Retro Vego Garden Highlights:

When you pull your car into the driveway, an aroma of fresh basil immediately surrounds you. It smells so good to be home! And it is so convenient to go outside, harvest, and bring all the veggies right into the kitchen. It’s real garden-to-table style dining!
