Shed Garden rustic-landscape

Shed Garden

We transformed our lonely shed, abandoned at the edge of a gravel driveway into a food source and cozy retreat from the summer sun.

I love this raised bed as an extension of the deck. It's a perfect kitchen garden.
AFTER: The new garden was built completely from scratch; most of the work was done in spring and summer 2011. Joseph and Robin added 185 square feet of planting space to the shed, plus about 35 square feet for the shade garden off the back of the deck.More:Inspiring Ideas for Your Backyard
