Cottage Garden backyard food forest

Cottage Garden: Our goal here was to maximize the space while still feeling humble and engaging. Blueberries and citrus are easy to access. An already booming vegetable garden we put in 3 weeks ago occupies the sunniest spot. We had to remove this crepe myrtle to bring in another 4 hours of full sun to the area, but it will be worth it.

We custom built these curved trellises to the size of the lady who will be picking the blackberries. The entire landscape was raised 8″ before beginning. This gives us the opportunity to bring in soils which drain well and retain nutrients well. Thus expanding the palette of plants we can easily grow here. The flowers we’re growing out for this project will be ready and added soon.
