How wide are garden beds themselves? And how much did the brick cost you?

I hope you'll all forgive a small, uninvited tip: native soil is great IF its great. Horse manure can be full of weed seeds and very "hot" (look it up). Some places don't freeze hard enough to heave the ground (obviously not an issue in Chi-town). Homemade compost is often full of seeds, too. I wouldn't be afraid to bring in quality 3-way soil to a project like this to save yourself the aforementioned potentials and to ensure such an awesome design actually produces.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Feast Your Eyes on Edible Gardens
Flowers nestled among the greenery provide sparks of color. They're also a great way to attract beneficial insects, birds and butterflies to the space.
Danyelle Mathews added this to The Family Home: Going Greener
8. Plant a family garden. Gardens are great for families. They're fantastic ways to teach children about where food comes from, and they are good for the earth. Planting and harvesting items you would typically purchase from the grocery store will save you money and fuel. Plus, a garden will give you an opportunity to experiment with composting — an excellent way to cut back your family's contribution to landfills.Raised Beds Lift the GardenMore Family Home:Living Rooms You Can Live InCreative Multi-Use WorkspacesA Kitchen the Entire Clan Will Love
“Trap cropping is a form of companion planting,” says Jessica Walliser, author of the forthcomingAttracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden: A Natural Approach to Pest Control. “However, the idea isn’t to repel the insects, it’s to attract them to plants you are willing to sacrifice in order to keep the insects away from the plants you want.”If you would like to try trap cropping, here are some guidelines: • Only use a trap crop if you’ve had a destructive pest in the past.• Don’t try it as a precaution; you may invite pests you haven’t had yet!
9. Edible beds with inviting paths. Kids get excited about eating their vegetables when they’ve helped grow them in their backyard. Growing a mix of fun edibles (like sugar snap peas and mint), soft and touchable plants (like lamb’s ear), and fresh flowers meant for cutting means there is always something interesting to do in the garden. Stock an area nearby with kid-size watering cans and make clearly marked paths so kids know where to walk (and where not to).More planting ideas in the Houzz Gardening section

Avoid dangerous plants. Consult a gardener or horticulturist for how to steer clear of dangerous plants in your yard, including: •Toxic plants (mushrooms, oleander) •Prickly plants (roses, bougainvillea, cactus) •Plants that bear small fruit (berries, olives) Radel notes that berries and olives, like pea gravel, are choking hazards because of their size. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, a representative from the San Diego Regional Poison Center advises parents to search their lawns for mushrooms every day before sending their kids out to play. Mushrooms, the rep says, are one of the top plants ingested by small children that send them to the emergency room.
