It is getting to be that time of year when people all across the country want to put in a garden in their back yard and start growing their favorite fruits, vegetables and flowers. However, many people also have large trees in their yard, or limited space that makes it nearly impossible to attain a flourishing garden. Luckily, there are various options that you can use that will allow you to achieve that lush garden you are searching for in a very limited space.
Pallet Gardening is the new rave in gardening techniques, although the same principles have been around for a very long time. In essence, pallet gardening is growing your pots and plants in a pallet, at an angle. The theory here is that they will get the same amount of light, although they will not be taking up horizontal space on the ground. This is called vertical gardening and the technique has been incredibly successful, as is utilized by people all around the world. By growing your plants in this manner, you will be able to grow far more plants in a confined space, however, if you have a large yard or space to grow in, you can grow in a small area and still use the rest of your yard for whatever else you might want. This is an incredibly innovative way to utilize space in your yard and the interesting thing is that the plants grow just as well in this manner. Plants inevitably lean towards the sun, thus, they will still grow straight up, while providing you with a much more effective growing space. To complete this type of growing method, you will need landscaping fabric, in order to seal up your pallet. Simply hang excess fabric over the edges, so that you can fold back around the sides and staple them to the pallet. After you do this, you should be able to fill the pallet with dirt and put your garden into action.
