If you’ve ever had the privilege to live on a corner lot, you know the struggle. What do you do with that small piece of land that’s facing the street but isn’t your backyard?
You could fence it in, but no one will ever play there and no one wants to be relegated to the dark corner of the yard to “relax.”
You could just leave it be, but all of that grass seems like a waste of real estate. It’s also a waste of your time to mow, especially if you have an electric lawn mower!!
My friends Graham and Sarah have come up with a fantastic solution: grow a raised bed vegetable garden.
Today we’re going on a tour of their yard and talking about the project, the best parts, and what they wish they’d done differently.
