» SFG -- what to do with your shovel
by sfg4uKim 10/16/2016, 12:39 pm
I promise....last question today. I have the opportunity to space my boxes further apart if necessary. The boxes are following the curve of my flower bed and will be going out in "rays" from the curve so the distance will get wider the further back you go in the garden. I am starting the spacing at 3 feet, which works the best for overall layout. Looking back at how you did your boxes, do you wish you had more space between??? Will I wish I had gone wider than 3 feet? I hate feeling claustrophobic or gardens to look overgrown, LOL!

IMHO, I'd say that 3' is a safe minimum distance. Any narrower and you're going to have problems (unless you're really skinny) - anything wider is simply a matter of preference, space limitations, or aesthetics.
