Pin #3 – Raised Garden Beds for Narrow Spaces

With the two digging-prone dogs in command of the backyard, we had to look at other places to build our first garden. My husband recommended the narrow strip of our side yard (mostly because he wants to eliminate as much yard to mow as possible). This is one of the narrow beds that I found on Pinterest as an idea.

Ours haven’t turned out quite like this, but we did manage to maximize our space by terracing the beds on the modest slope of this strip of land.
