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!

    Would I be ok using old treated wood for my vegetable garden bed?

    Saturday, May 14th, 2011

    I just ripped down part of an old deck and have several leftover pressure treated 4x4s. Since I’d rather reuse than take to the dump I thought about building a vegetable garden bed. I know it’s not good using PT wood for vegetable garden beds but this wood is probably 7 years old. My bed would be approximately 4×8 and be stacked two 4x4s high. Is there really any danger after this PT wood has been weathered for 7 years in using it with the garden bed?

      How often do you water vegetable garden beds?

      Thursday, January 20th, 2011

      Hello!

      I have some 1 foot tall, 8 foot long by 2 foot wide garden beds filled with compost. They are planted with all sorts of vegetables – carrots, watermelons, tomatos, cucumbers, peppers.

      I have drip irrigation running down the middle, plus I have the overhead hose option.

      I live in Portland, OR where it is sunny and dry all summer.

      My question: How often and how much do I water the garden beds?

      Thank you very much!
      Laura
