We live in the suburbs of Denver. We have a quaint little house that probably has the same floor plan as every third house in our neighborhood. Along with suburbia comes small yards.
Some days we dream of living out in the country, having a farm, raising cattle and growing gardens that go on as far as the eye can see…. but until then, we will make the most of our small yard and work with what we got.
We have been determined to have a garden in our little yard, and we learn more each year of how to make the most of our limited space. Helping us along this year is the Urban Gardening For Dummies book.
This book shows the easy way to succeed at urban gardening. In simple terms, whether you have a townhouse, balcony or fire escape – or less – to work with, this book shows how to enjoy gardening in those small spaces!
