A huge vegetable garden means not only fresh salads, but also backache and sore knees. Working in a garden is hardly relaxing, but a stunning vegetable patch can become a gardener’s pride.
Raised garden beds
These raised beds can save your back and knees and become a clever decoration for your garden. As a bonus, they’re pretty easy to make: put the wooden slabs together, put some cardboard and metal mesh on the bottom, and fill the patch with soil.

An original idea which saves valuable space.
If your country house is on a slope, this garden idea can be a godsend for you.
A great decision for those who don’t want to bend over. This idea works especially well with flowers and strawberries.
You can cover the surface of your soil with mulch mats, which don’t let the sunrays in. Now you can forget about weed management, because there won’t be any weeds in your garden!
This will save space and at the same time you’ll create a living decoration. There are lots of varieties of hanging and climbing plants, and you can use them to create a beautiful arch.
You could also tie grapevines on a trellis.
A trellis is pretty easy to create: all you need is synthetic twine and some wooden girders.
