UNBELIEVABLE: This Guy Turned His Front Yard in a Major City Into a GARDEN

Nov 19 • Unbelievable • 4187 Views • No Comments

This is my front yard as seen from my street in the middle of June.

Started by making 8 6′x4′ raised beds with 1″x10″x10′ reclaimed redwood barn siding
Filled the beds with free compost that the city gives away. You can see behind my girlfriend the garden that I put in parkway that used to be paved.
Seeds started sprouting quickly. I sowed many directly, and some I started in a small hoop house I made in the backyard. Almost all my plants I grew from seed.

Irrigation is a PITA.

Filled cinder blocks with compost too. They’ll hold the wood chips off the sidewalk and create a honeybee sanctuary with lavender, rosemary, thyme, and basil planted in them.

Arugula came first



Radishes grow FAST.



This is one of my favorite features of the garden. I built a “free veggies” box to help spread the wealth. All sorts of people take what I offer up. I’ve seen people drive upand get out of there car just to check what’s in the box. It is amazing how many zucchinis my neighbors will eat.

Green Onions

Beets keep coming.

Romano Musica Beans.



Peppers are just showing up.

Tomatoes are also just getting ripe.

Squash blossoms!

And of course… flowers.


From the roof.

For those that worried about HOA’s or bringing down my neighbors property value. Here is a side by side of my property line with the neighbor to my east.

And my neighbor to my west.

Neighbor to my west…this will be my next project.
