very impressive and  very good space usage.  We have a large yard and still may not have as much as you.  We seperate our boxes by 2 ft.  My small mower fits as does or legs when kneeling down so it works for us.

That is not my actual garden - it is only a hypothetical design made for the purposes of the challenge.

The aisles in my real garden are closer to 2ft, and I even have portions with what I think of as 'legacy lanes' that are narrower because I was looking at Mel's first book (not the ANSFG book we follow now) when I laid out the beds. I kept most of the less than 2ft aisles when I upgraded to raised beds because the thought of turning nurtured, untrod growing squares into useful but 'non-productive' path was hard to swallow.

Sorry Guys!

My friend's young son is on hospice so I haven't had time to look these over. Will get to it when I can.

Very sorry to hear this. Take all the time you need -- being there for a friend, especially at a time like this, is far more important!

Well, this looks like the winner to me! CONGRATULATIONS! You now have bragging rights.

By any chance would you be able to put grids on it and shade or color on the hard-to-reach spaces so I can feature this on the SFG Foundation?

Sorry this took a bit -- the drawing program I'm using isn't especially friendly for this...
Does this work better?:

Thank you!

If it's OK with you, I'd like to feature it on the Square Foot Gardening Foundation Facebook page.

Please let me know how you would like your name to appear.

Well done!

Something like "One of our Square Foot Gardening Forum members who goes by BeetlesPerSqFt" would be fine. I'd rather not share my real name. hiding
