Square foot gardening is one of the best garden maintenance systems for backyard gardeners. Traditional gardening requires a lot of effort in tilling the soil, dealing with weeds, watering the plants and other garden maintenance tasks. However, its results are not fit for the needs of backyard gardeners. If you use traditional gardening systems in your backyard, you will end up harvesting too many of the same type of fruits or vegetables at one time.
Square foot gardening requires some effort to set up, but it is easy to maintain. Because this system uses prepared soil, there is no need to dig up the soil in your backyard. This book prescribes using the later versions of the square foot gardening system. In the later versions, the planting boxes are above ground. This separates your crops from contamination present in the soil in your area.
Square foot gardening allows you to plan your harvest, so that you do not end up with too many fruits and vegetables at one time. You may plant only the specific amount that you need.
Lastly, this book applies organic gardening principles in implementing the square foot gardening system. In this book, we prescribe the use only of materials and plants native to your area. For instance, some early sources of square foot gardening suggest the use of materials that, we have learned, are not sustainable. The researchers of this book looked into alternatives for these materials and included them in the book.
