Growing Organic Produce Has Never Been Easier

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 1 June , 2022

As spring bursts into bloom, there is very little that can compare with harvesting some of your own fresh produce from your yard.  The taste and freshness of home-grown produce are legendary, as are the health benefits of organic food in general and fruits and vegetables in particular.

However, many San Diego residents believe that they must have a large outdoor space to grow their own organic produce.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  With the right landscape design, anyone can grow fresh produce in a very small amount of space.  With the help of a professional landscape designer, it is easy to design and build an organic garden that will keep your family in fresh produce year-round!

What Can I Grow In A Backyard Organic Garden? 

The things you can grow in your own backyard are limited only by your imagination.  There are many ways to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into your landscape plan, including:

  • Trellising and vertical gardening. There are several ways to incorporate a vertical element into your food crop planning.  Vertical gardening allows you to take advantage of tiny areas to produce bumper crops.  For example, fruit trees that would take up too much yard space can be espaliered against a wall or trellis so that growth is directed upwards rather than outwards.  Vertical trellises and frames can hold plenty of pots for herbs or smaller vegetable crops, allowing you to make use of all of your pace.  Even vining plants, such as beans, can be trained to grow in very small spaces.
  • Container gardening. Another way to expand your growing space is to utilize containers.  Large pots or planters on patios can serve as a “mobile” garden, allowing you to grow tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and other vegetables as well as move them to sunny spots as needed.  Further, small hybrid versions of many fruit trees can be grown in containers, allowing you to enjoy fresh fruit right from your patio.
  • In-ground crops in selected areas. Even if you have only a small yard, some of it is probably suitable for an in-ground area.  Many homeowners maintain a year-round herb garden right outside their back door.  You may also want to dedicate a particular area to growing annual crops such as tomatoes and maintain the area during the non-growing season for spring planting the next year.  Additionally, rotating crops through a yearly cycle can be beneficial for your soil.

No matter what the size of your yard, it is possible to grow your own food and enjoy fresh, organic produce all year with the right plan.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
