Round beds

Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre Garden; August 2013

This bed is in the garden of the Visitor Centre in the Brecon Beacons and it struck me as an incredibly valuable growing space.

I could easily reach to the middle from the edge so guess it to be about 2.4 meters across. This bed was planted with herbs but could have easily fitted a wig-wam of beans, a squash plant, salad crops and some brassicas and with thought to the varieties used still remained a decorative focus for the garden.

A perfect one person, low maintainance vegetable garden.

The bed was in the middle of a average-ish sized garden (as far as I can tell, I certainly wouldn’t be happy with anything smaller but might be a little spoilt when it comes to garden size) with borders around the edge and lawn to enjoy the outdoors on.

 The round shape of the bed seemed to help the whole garden feel bigger than it was as it fitted so nicely into it with no harsher edges.
