Keyhole vegetable garden - A central pathway wraps around this veggie patch, making working the beds a snap. It's positioned so the opening faces south; the larger plants in back (beans, tomatoes, and sunflowers) won't shade smaller plants.
Affordable garden path idea, this one is the gravel path. Instead of an expensive, labor-intensive formal path, save money and time with one of these casual paths. They'll blend in better, and will look like they've been in your garden forever.
