Will a vegetable garden increase my homes value?

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

We’re replacing our decks railing, so I thought it would be nice to use it as a fence around some raised vegetable garden beds. We’re planning on selling the house in 5 years or so, would this be appealing to buyers? A nice vegetable garden? Thanks!

      I have a vegetable garden next to the property fence. The rain water from slightly higher neighbor’s property?

      Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

      I have a vegetable garden next to the property fence. The rain water from slightly higher neighbor’s property comes to my vegetable garden. This water is contaminated with stools and urine of cat and dog. What is the potential risk of any disease transmission from a disease carrying/infected cat/dog’ fecal matter or urine entering the soil and the roots of vegetable grown in such environment?

          How can I keep deer out of my vegetable garden this year?

          Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

          I had a gorgeous garden last year, and the deer ended up eating every single tomato, and most of the other vegetables. What they didn’t eat, they trampled on. I want to make sure it doesn’t happen again this year.
          I can’t afford a fence, and my garden isn’t that big, and my yard itself is huge…

            Landscape cheaply the area around pool? Any ideas?

            Monday, February 14th, 2011

            We have an in ground pool a the top of a small rise. It is in a flat area, with a crappy wire and post fence around it. Very shabby (not chic) looking. The surrounding area inside the fence, outside the pool is currently dug up of all it’s grass. Just made a mess when mowed. We have one small area/corner which we added some decking where we place our bistro table and chairs. The rest of the area which on two sides is about 2′ wide, and the third side which is 3′ wide is blah. We have a shabby chic/recycle type decor around the yard, pool house and house. We are on a very tight budget so recycling and re-purposing works best for us. I need help with ideas to make this area look interesting. I had an idea of perhaps small squares edged with some sort of timbers and then with plants in them spaced around the area here and there (I can transplant some plants from my garden to fill these). I don’t know what we could do with the in between areas though. We don’t want to use mulch, or too much rock due to trying to keep the cost down. I thought maybe something with old pallets? This is not an area we walk in either, it is purely for show. I can’t find any pics for ideas on line. I am open to all suggestions and nothing will sound too outlandish for me. We live in the northeast so this area is greatly used during the months of May-September. Then the brutal weather sets in.

              What are some natural ways to keep deer out of a vegetable garden?

              Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

              HELP! We have a bunch of deer that have been hanging around our yard this past winter and now that it is planting season, they need to be evicted! What are some "natural" ways to get rid of them so they don’t eat the garden? We won’t shoot them, so don’t throw that one at me! I also don’t want to spray chemicals on my vegetables. That is the biggest reason we are growing them ourselves. A fence is also not a practical solution. Thanks for your help!

                Could someone give me some tips on vegetable gardening in Florida climate?

                Thursday, January 6th, 2011

                With the rising costs of gas pushing up food prices, I would like to plant a vegetable garden. What are some vegetables that can be planted in late spring? As I stated, I live in Central Florida where there is plenty of sunshine, but summers are very hot. It is already in the mid 80’s in April. Also, the soil here is rather sandy so I would have to fortify it with something before planting.
                I would definitely like to plant tomatoes, okra, squash, onions and cucumbers. Would these make it in the Florida climate? It is also very humid here.
                Finally, what is the best type of fence to keep out rabbits and raccoons? Forgive me for sounding clueless, but I am new at this. I would like to make this a fun and educational experience for myself and my children. It would also take some financial strain off of us in the long run. Thanks!

                Any tips for a beginner's vegetable garden?

                Saturday, January 1st, 2011

                I live in Reno, Nv (Northern Nevada). I have a landscaped backyard with a flower garden, but I want to make a small vegetable garden that will I will plan and take care of by myself.

                I am planning to start it just outside the fence to my backyard. I will be buying live plants instead of seeds. It will not be attached to the drip system that my other plants use (where’s the fun in that?)

                I plan to research the matter online and check with the nursery for information. I just wanted to also get advice from hobby vegetable gardeners themselves.

                Thank you for your time:)
