With gorgeous photos and conversational writing, the authors lay out an easy-to-follow plan. ---Everett Herald

About the Author

Colin McCrate and Brad Halm started the Seattle Urban Farm Co. in the spring of 2007 to answer one simple question: Does anybody need help setting up a vegetable garden? Turns out, quite a few. In addition to building gardens, including the award-winning, rooftop design for Seattle's Bastille restaurant, and providing private gardening instruction, they teach community classes and lead urban farming workshops. After getting their start working on farms and studying organic food in the Midwest for several years, McCrate and Halm now live in Seattle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read before you decide on a garden spot!
Reviewed in the United States on 20 May 2020
This book covers it all. When we started to plan our garden, we got this book first. I am so glad we did! I read several other gardening books, and while they were all helpful, none of the other books came close to this one in terms of breadth and depth of useful material. It covers deciding where to put it, how big to make it, and what shape it should take. It covers what to do about irrigation, soil, fertilizer (hint: go organic), and more. It covers what kinds of seeds to get, how to plan what to plant when, and how/why to do crop rotation. It goes into the main crops you might grow, what to watch for, and what you can learn from each crop.

The authors run a Seattle home gardening business and I live in Utah. It is a completely different climate, and I feel like they did a good job making it generic enough to work for any location.

I am on my third garden season and I am still learning, but there are things you can only do when you are planning your garden (like out it in the sunshine), and I am so glad I had this book to help with the planning.

Reviewed in the United States on 14 July 2019
I was recommend this book so I checked it out from the library and I LOVED it. I had to buy it because it is a must have for gardeners. It is well written, organized and easy to understand regardless of how much gardening experience you have. My favorite part is the month by month guide on what you shoud be doing in your garden. They also go through tons of plant care and provide tons of examples on how to design gardens of all shapes and sizes.
