Introducing Garden Design from Garden House Floral

I am so excited to start this up! My true love and knowledge has always been around gardening, and being outdoors with live plants. I've had a few ah hah moments the past few months where I knew this was the direction I wanted to go. I will be keeping up on my floral business as well, it is what keeps me going year round so don't hesitate to call for flowers!

I am currently working on designing Vegetable Gardens for families, no matter what the space. All within the Salt Lake Valley. I will also consult with anyone interested in designing your flowerbeds, shrub and tree areas, also hardscapes and much more. I will work up my price list in the next week.

Now is the time to plant your Veggie Garden!
We start here.

A Vegetable Garden is one of the most fun gardens to grow. You get to harvest you hard work at the end of the season and even during the season. We are encouraged by our communities, and our church to grow some produce of our own. It is amazing what you can do with just a little space.
Above I have a very simple clear design I drew up for The Badger Family Garden, which I am lucky enough to be a part of in more than one way. We were able to lay everything out and plant this past weekend. We were one of the first few Gardens started in the area. This particular area has a community garden where families pay to reserve a Garden Plot to fit their family.

Below I researched and typed up common vegetables anyone would plant in their garden. I found out dates to plant, when the plants will reach maturity and other details in knowing how to plant each variety.
Below we have our Plot. It measure out to be about 30 feet by 4 feet wide. The soil was amazing! It shouldn't be hard to grow anything here. Wish us luck! More updates to come!
