119 square feet plus two 2' x 4' beds on wheels that I will be baby sitting for 6 months = 135, plus the 5-gallon buckets, BTE strip and a few large pots. More than I ever thought I could squeeze in this tiny back yard.

Sometimes I feel like the answer is "Not enough" but then other times it could be "Too Many" Laughing

RC, You ARE living large since you are using the SFG method...after all, that's one of the many benefits of SFG'ing.

RE:-how-many-square-feet-do-you-have ?

Post  newbeone on 3/3/2017, 9:00 am

At the present I have 117 and I'm filling another 4X8 bed will take me up to 149. Have to stop there, have to leave room for the dog. I built a large ring around our one small tree in the front yard using pavers from my old beds. I have a few flowers interplanted with Rainbow chard and I plan to plant some Lacinato Kale for height, I have to go slow with this to keep HOA at bay.

HOAs can present a challenge, sometimes even for the backyards.

Naw, just means you're more efficient in getting what you want out of a small space. Laughing

I started out with four small beds totaling 28 sq ft and 31 pots, so don't feel like a slacker. It's better to expand slowly than to build a SFG that is larger than time, energy, shade conditions, composting making can support. Wink
