Space for edibles

Designer Scot Eckley is practical when it comes to having a kitchen garden. “People have these big ambitions to do giant kitchen gardens,” he says, “but the reality is that they don't always have time to maintain them.” His solution was to build four square raised beds out of bluestone, each bed measuring 4 feet by 4 feet. This way, he says, “Even in the dead of winter, if nothing is planted out there, we still have the frame of the beautiful bluestone.”
