So, I just had 4 4x4 raised gardening beds installed. I am beyond giddy over them, I love to garden. But, I'm more the type to shove plants in where I can find space. This organized gardening is new.

Has anyone else been successful with Square Foot Gardening? Know any good websites/blogs?

There is a book specifically devoted to this called Square Foot Gardening, I believe it is published by Cool Springs Press.

Pinterest has a lot of gardening stuff--like what plants are "friends" or "foes" to each other. I know that the onions do well by the rosebushes! I can't wait to start gardening here, too. I'm going to start small with tomatoes, but I'm going to put them in a new spot. Then I'm going to move on to shrubs. All of my shrubs bit the dust over the past couple of years, so now it is time for new! Good luck!

I had my parent's original 1970's version…but recently moved and can't find it to save my life. I know it isn't very popular these days, but it worked perfectly for my yard. I was just curious if anyone had tried and had luck?!

I've been gardening my entire life, this is just new

I do a modified version of square foot gardening in containers.

Check gardenweb's SFG forum- lots of great advice there!

I fell in love w/ SFG and Mel B in my early married years and the early years of the show. Even had some success with it. <shocking>

Good, solid info, workable program, flexible, not to overwhelming for a newbie (I was a kid and never grown anything before in my life), and I still think fondly of it and him and his show (an acquired taste - a quirky and good guy.)

But a girlfriend started it 5 years ago - and she was an accomplished gardener of many years from a rural background and she swears by it, too.

You're going to love it!

It pretty much depends on where you live and what you plant. I know in the southwest it's not recommended because it's so dry and the winds would dry the raised beds even more planting in the ground (if possible-caliche is like cement ) is much better as it's easier to control moisture. You also have to plant things that don't have roots that need to go deeper than your beds.

Other than that, it's very popular, so it must be successful.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I've been doing this for years and have 6 raised beds.

Love it. So easy to maintain and it makes gardening fun again.

Every year I dump in more compost and composted manure and top soil and now I have wonderful soil in the beds. In the winter I cover them with mulched leaves and in the spring turn everything over and mix it up.

Have fun.
