I agree that this is a nifty layout. However, one needs 3' aisles. These do not appear to be more than 2', if that.

I suppose its neat enough if its only going to be used for short plants..... like lettuce. I can't imagine how they would tame plants that like to spread out.

That isle looks to be 18 inches at most.

Yes, but this will make the perfect summer hide-and-seek spot...hiding in there and munching on vegetables, I'd make sure they never found me.

My aisles are only big enough to get the lawn mower through, I think about 26", maybe a bit more.

Good points about the size of the aisle... but I'd still make this if I could - maybe bigger so that the space in the middle could be bigger, and making sure to have a good wide border all around it. I think it's a great use of space.

As to aisle size, it was quite a squeeze when I had only 21 1/2" between beds.
