Publisher's Summary

This book will help you create your own square foot garden.

Have you always wanted to garden in small areas?

Do you want to create a garden which you will be proud of?

Have you wanted to learn the techniques which will make you garden flourish?

Look no further! My book will answer all your questions!

In my book, I will show you proven steps and strategies on how to implement square foot gardening in your backyard.

Square foot gardening is one of the best garden maintenance systems for backyard gardeners. Traditional gardening requires a lot of effort in tilling the soil, dealing with weeds, watering the plants and other garden maintenance tasks. However, its results are not fit for the needs of backyard gardeners. If you use traditional gardening systems in your backyard, you will end up harvesting too many of the same type of fruits or vegetables at one time.

Square foot gardening requires some effort to set up, but it is easy to maintain. Because this system uses prepared soil, there is no need to dig up the soil in your backyard. This book prescribes using the later versions of the square foot gardening system. In the later versions, the planting boxes are above ground. This separates your crops from contamination present in the soil in your area.

Square foot gardening allows you to plan your harvest, so that you do not end up with too many fruits and vegetables at one time. You may plant only the specific amount that you need.

Lastly, this book applies organic gardening principles in implementing the square foot gardening system. In this book, we prescribe the use only of materials and plants native to your area. For instance, some early sources of square foot gardening suggest the use of materials that, we have learned, are not sustainable. The researchers of this book looked into alternatives for these materials and included them in the book.

    "Healthy guide"

    Got this book because I loved the Square Foot Gardening books. Both had plenty of content and well-formatted. This one is a bit blander with larger paragraphs and fewer step-by-step approaches. It's more like an overview and seems like it is geared towards gardeners with a lot more experience. I have a little experience so I had to be a bit patient, read it slower and eventually I inched towards the square foot garden. Yeah it's pretty space saving and not as bad as I thought. Book needs to be a bit easier to read so more people can check out this nice method.

    "Fruits and Vegetables"

    I rarely buy books, to be honest--it's a matter of money + space - great library = few purchases. However, I have bought several copies of this book because this method is superb: it's neat, it's clean, it's extremely--and I mean extremely--easy to manage. This is--by far--the easiest, best-laid out, user-friendly books I have EVER seen, complete with charts, pictures of each step--you name it. And personally, as a frugalholic, I love a book where someone who doesn't have to worry about cost remembers that other people do--Mel writes this for the frugal at heart complete with LOTS of money-saving tips!!!

    "best Square Foot Gardening Guide"

    I became interested in square foot gardens because I don't have a lot of space available and also I don't have enough free time to use a traditional gardening system which requires a lot of work. I really like the idea of a square foot garden because it allows me to plan my harvest and I can plant just the amount I need. This book gave me a great insight on how a square garden should be build and used. I have already started creating my garden and hopefully in a while I can harvest my first crops. An excellent book with all sorts of tips!

This book also encourage using organic resources which are readily available nearest our area. Author also provides guidelines on choosing the right plants and how to maintain it productively. Highly recommended..

    "The good guide for square foot"

    The square foot gardening guide is a great book. It is more helpful and interesting guide. It is also useful for beginners also. The author has explained it in detail. "There are three characteristics of a perfect growing mix. First of all, it's lightweight, so it is easy to work with and easy for plants to grow in. Next, it is nutrient rich and has all the minerals and trace elements that plants need without adding fertilizers. Finally, it holds moisture yet drains well." Nothing that will ruin your garden, but enough to leave me feeling cautious about the info. in the book as I read onward. I would like to thank the author Kevin Theis for giving this great guide for square foot gardening guide, Thanks.
