Back yard,sorry....this was now planned!
view of water fall and stream.
pathway to house.

I am so excited about all the information !

Don't know where to start!

I live in LA CA and have a beautifull yard,people live it or hate it!

it is close to a very large hospital and some people I've found park and walk here just for the joy of seeing it !

If I stay long enough out
There is always someone who will walk by and tell me how much they love it! it is serene and because of the water features it calls a lot of creatures in!

I would love to ad edible plants it is a dream for me,but seems overwhelming!

I really don't know where to start and I hAve Raccoons that will eat anything as soon as they smell it;(

there must be a way,because there certainly is a will!

Warm regards,

Hi, Irene --

Thank you for sharing your garden!

To answer your question, yes, a greywater system is perfectly suitable for an edible garden.

I have a couple of resources that I've created to help people with creating their edible gardens:

I have a workbook, "How to make your own garden landscape design plans", which can get you started in the right direction.

If you would like to be guided through the process you can apply for my Tasteful Yard Design program.

I hope that when you add in some edible plants that you'll enter in our Four Season Garden contest!

Best wishes,
