Vegetable Garden Ideas and Inspiration

Do you have a vegetable garden?

Maybe large pots with tomato plants?

My husband and I did our best to create a modest garden space a couple of years ago when we were home. 

Today I'm going to brag on my very talented daughter and and show you how she built an amazing vegetable garden on the side of their house.

Talk about garden goals!

I share my oldest daughter on Homeroad often. 

I can't help it, from kitchen renovation, furniture flipping, wedding planning and gardening, she has a ridiculous amount of talent.

Today I'm going to show you the garden she built on the side of her house with almost no help! 

As you scroll through this post please pay attention to the bold blue links for all the details on these projects! Also check out the READ MORE sections at the end of this post for more projects you'll love! ❤️

She began this project with 2x6" pressure treated lumber.

She cut the wood to size and built the raised garden boxes using 2x2" pieces in the corners.

If these beautiful raised beds weren't enough, she built a fence around the perimeter of her garden.

She used wire inside the fencing to create a barrier to keep out small animals.

We have sooo many bunnies in our area. 

Her garden even gets a gate!

Kasey built smaller beds inside the fenced area for lettuce and large pots for more vegetables. 

She found all the large pots on the side of the road!

The beans are planted next to a chicken wire trellis so they can climb.

She sectioned off her seeded areas with twine and planted marigolds near the vegetables to keep out the bugs.

Corn, tomatoes, beans, lettuce... it's all here!

I can hardly believe the amazing job this woman did on this garden with almost no help!

Well maybe just a little help...

I hope Kasey's DIY garden will give you inspiration to attempt something you love.

This is a far cry from our DIY fenced garden area! 😂

I began writing this post about a month ago so I'm including some of the latest veggie pics toward the end of this post. 

Look at those tomato plants now!
