Planning Your Garden Paradise

Sunlight Savvy: Most vegetables and flowers crave sunshine, so pick a location that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.
Size Matters: Be realistic about the space you have and the amount of time you can dedicate to upkeep.
Plot Perfect: Raised garden beds offer excellent drainage and keep critters at bay. While Ted’s Woodworking doesn’t sell pre-built options or lumber, their high-quality woodworking plans can help you source lumber from your local supplier and construct beautiful and functional raised beds yourself!
