Recent years have seen a significant increase in exclusive restaurants with select kitchen gardens from which they source their vegetables and herbs. These gardens are found in many surprising places, rooftops and balconies are some of the more popular. In decades past it was assumed that a sizable plot of land was needed to plant a garden, but it’s been shown that container and raised bed gardens can produce a surprising amount of food in a small amount of well-planned space. Now you can have your own exclusive kitchen garden to supply your culinary desires.

The Perks of a Private Garden

It has long been known that fresh vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet. In the Great War and World War II, Victory Gardens were a popular way to show support for the troops and bolster food production in the United States. The Victory Gardens of yesteryear were much the same as today’s kitchen gardens with many of the same benefits.

  • Organic vegetables without the chemical herbicides and pesticides used in commercial operations.
  • Regular time outdoors in the fresh air relieves stress and there’s nothing like using fresh herbs and vegetables in your cooking.
  • Gardening is a great activity to do with children to teach them where their food originates and to encourage eating a variety of foods.
  • Planting foods you eat on a regular basis can result in significant financial savings throughout the year.
  • When combined with composting, your net household waste and carbon footprint may be reduced.

Starting Your DIY Eden

Creating a raised bed garden is a great way to designate garden space while also making it easy to care for.

  • Landscape timbers can be stacked and arranged to make boxes that not only describe the area to be planted, but also provide a seat for weeding and harvesting.
  • Paving stones placed between the raised beds create an easy to maintain pathway through your garden area.
  • Some plants that need space to spread out, like cucumbers and peas, may be grown next to a trellis and trained to grow up, instead of out. A trellis can also make harvesting those vegetables easier when they ripen.

Now is the time to get started on your own kitchen garden and the specialists at Green Landscape Supply can help you in your selection of materials, from the timbers and flagstones to the soil and mulch that will best meet your needs.

  • Jon B.

    Wanted to add top dressing to my lawn and stopped by to get some basic facts before starting. The team was so helpful to answer my many questions and made me feel comfortable to move forward with project. Stopped by a few weeks later with a u-haul and was all loaded up and ready to go within 15 minutes. Very helpful and inviting team. I might have them deliver next time, seems it's much easier and it can be dropped off on my driveway in those huge plastic bags - wife likes that Idea, and keeps me from unloading the truck on my own

    We undertook a major landscaping project spanning 2018-2019. It includes stabilizing a foundation wall, construction of retaining walls, redirecting drainage, raised flowerbeds, and completely redoing the lawn. It requires multiple truckloads of stone, sand, fill dirt and topsoil. We saved a few dollars, but more importantly, the quality of the products ordered were unequaled. It was the best experience in getting exactly what and how much we needed that we had in the 30Y we've been here.

  • Ben J.

    Holy Cow! Super fast and friendly service having some gravel delivered. Person taking order on phone and driver very friendly. Feel I got a very fair price on material as well. Will be back.

  • Joshua J.

    When every other landscaping nursery was out of sod these guys had it. Felt very much like a family business. Not a lot frills here, but none are needed for a landscaping business. For my next project I might just have to drive past the other 3 nurseries to get here.

  • Tessa H.

    The only place I will go from now on! John was very kind and so helpful! Even though my job was really small, I was treated with so much respect and personal care that I will not being going anywhere else for my landscape needs in the future. They have a massive selection and their customer service is outstanding.

  • Will M.
