Petite plantings This spring, bring your food closer to home—perhaps just outside your kitchen window—by planting a vegetable garden. One of the newest trends in backyard horticulture is square-foot gardening. This method, which uses a raised, square-foot bed, is ideal for those who desire a garden but lack the space for a full spread. Benefits include less weeding and watering, plus the option of placing containers on a raised surface to keep curious animals away. Novice green thumbs shouldn’t be daunted, as several local nurseries are well-versed in this gardening practice. For starters, check out Harb’s Oasis, Clegg’s Nursery, Garden District Nursery or Louisiana Nursery.
