Things to Keep in Mind

Keep the following in mind while browsing each sample layout on this page...

  • The vegetable garden plans are ordered by garden size (smallest to largest), but don’t be discouraged by larger dimensions. If a larger plan has your favorite veggies, just scale it down to meet your needs.
  • You can always remove veggies you don’t like from each layout and add ones that you do.
  • Many of the vegetable garden plans assume that you are planting in traditional narrow rows. Strategically staggering the seeds in wider rows (as long as you can reach the middle of the row from both sides) will allow you to plant more seeds per square foot. Find picture
  • Any dates provided in each vegetable garden layout are specific to the region for which they were drawn up… but don’t limit yourself to just those layouts near you! Make appropriate adjustments based on your region.
  • Don’t forget to plan your crop rotation for future years.
  • Keep succession planning in mind (filling the space of your harvested vegetables with new seeds) to maximize your garden’s yield.
  • Follow the vegetable links below for more detailed planting instructions.
  • Remember to incorporate our companion planting charts, doing your best to plant friends and enemies where they belong.
