Are you looking around your garden wondering where you might be able to make a little extra space for a veggie patch? Perhaps you might take a little inspiration from Nancy Steiner who transformed her driveway into a garden that feeds her family.
When Nancy and landscape designer Leslie Needham realized that this was the place that got 8 hours of sun a day and it was easily accessible for picking as the family arrived home at the end of the day and headed into the house, — the decision to transform the driveway into a garden was obvious.
Using a variety of space saving options (like growing cucumbers up on tuteurs and putting every spare inch to work) they were able to create a garden that feeds her whole family – 2 adults and 5 teenagers!
I so wish I could share the before of this….but I think we can all imagine a car parked here an agree that this is much much better.
