Featured in this raised bed is an appealing cacophony of color including hot pink dianthus (a type of sweet William); lighter pink yarrow (Achillea Millefolium); hot pink salvia in the background; golden coleus 'Wizard' in the foreground and 'Sunshine' ligustrum, miniature to the left and right.
What was once a slippery clay slope became a wonderful edible garden with the addition of terraced raised beds, steps and gravel treads. The gardens are only 4 feet wide, so they're easy to access from all sides.
Raised kitchen garden planters made the sloped front yard into a pretty and functional space. Redwood steps and gravel patches ease access between the beds. And the whole lovely scene can also be enjoyed from the shade of the porch.
Kitchen Garden With Herbs and Vegetables in Raised Beds
Your kitchen garden can be as elaborate as a large plot of land sporting many raised beds and trellises or as simple as a few pots on a sunny balcony. As long as you have a spot that gets five to six hours of sun (hopefully near the kitchen, thus the name), well-amended soil or a good potting medium and are committed to the process, your garden will thrive.
