Nothing is more rewarding than to grow, harvest, and consume fresh produce, grown right in your back yard. Instead of buying all your fruit at the market, consider designing a portion of the landscape that incorporates fruits, nuts and herbs. Plant a fruit tree instead of a traditional ornamental tree.
Do your neighborhood covenants not allow a raised garden bed? Then have your landscape designed with edibles for ornamental value. Sweet potatoes make a wonderful ground cover. Celery can create a mini border. Serviceberry shrubs can create a screen, while a peach tree can produce some shade for the a lawn chair. Incorporating edibles into the landscape provides endless possibilities. Why not start today?
