Besides, when combined with other flowering plants that attract beneficial insects and pollinators, you will have a more healthy and vibrant garden. The vegetable garden does not need to be crammed into the far corner of the rear yard. Imagine it conveniently located near your new outdoor kitchen and part of your outdoor living experience. What if the only place in your yard with adequate sun is in your front yard? No problem! I've created many front yard edible gardens that are absolutely beautiful. So whether you want an herb garden, salad garden, home orchard, or edible estate, there are ways to integrate that into your landscape. Look at this idea ...

Discover how edibles are being incorporated intro trendy urban & suburban landscapes. Learn how to attractively integrate perennials, annuals and herbs that will attract pollinators & beneficial insects. Enjoy examples of how the design principles of color, texture & form are utilized to create beautiful results.
