Edible Landscaping:
Design A Yard That Feeds You

Invest in a tasteful yard -- create your own edible landscaping

Many people spend time, money and energy working on their yards -- only to get grass clippings and water bills in return.

But there's a better way!

Instead, create a beautiful, well-manicured yard that gives you high quality organically-grown food, turning your property into a beautiful, food-secure home.

Food gardens don't have to be ugly!

Whether you have been gardening for decades or are a complete beginner, you can create lovely, polished landscaping using food plants -- even in the front yard.

Learn how to design your own edible landscape ...

  • use your favorite herbs, fruits and vegetables ... nothing tastes better than fresh from your own yard ...
  • create healthy, chemical-free yards for your children and grandchildren to play in -- while they learn where real food comes from ...
  • design a sustainable, productive, gorgeous ecosystem ...
  • show your neighborhood, family, and friends how beautiful and elegant a food garden can be ...
  • craft a truly tasteful landscape that you can be proud to entertain in year round.
