We understand that price can be a significant factor in your edible gardening decision. We believe all money spent on an edible garden is priceless and there is nothing more valuable than growing your own food.
We also recommend you consider other benefits like the knowing exactly how your food is grown, spending relaxing time outdoors in nature with your garden, getting your family involved and your kids to love eating their vegetables, and the long term benefits to your health and well being.
When it comes to budgeting, we’ve put together a couple different gardening scenarios at various price points to help you with your decision making process. These examples are designed to optimize the all-around experience in terms of yields, maintenance time, and aesthetics.
These garden examples look at just the startup costs to get a garden planted. The cost of labour in terms of garden upkeep (watering, weeding, harvesting) and additional accessories aren’t included unless specified in the details. Your individual circumstances will probably be different when it comes to gardening experience, choice of vegetables, eating preferences, etc.
Good sun conditions (6+ hours per day) and average soil conditions are assumed. You’ll notice the tabs below that highlight various examples. Click on all the them to get more details on the various price points and garden examples.
