Intensive gardening techniques maximize yield while improving soil health
Intensive gardening techniques maximize yield from limited space while improving soil health. Square-foot gardening utilizes intensive spacing, which is not a new concept, but American gardener Mel Bartholomew coined the phrase “square-foot gardening.” A 4-foot-by-4-foot space is divided into 16 squares. Each square is planted with a different crop. Each crop has a specific spacing. Radishes and carrots are planted 16 to a square. Tomatoes are one plant per square. Spacing requirements are listed on the back of seed packets.
