1. A Wall
2. A Gate
I adore gates. Iron, wooden, stone they are all lovely to me. But the gate for the kitchen garden has to be a closed style verses the airy see-through gates we often see at the edge of the street welcoming guests to a home, so most likely it will be of the wooden variety.
This gate when closed will keep all critters large and small away. I love the copper trim and the scrolling around an oval window. The other aspect that is gorgeous with this gate is the fact that it has a top over it.
This wooden and lattice gate is very traditional and lovely. You can see through into the garden while keeping things out.
This blue door gate is a little whimsical and I love the growth over the top of the door.
There needs to be a way to navigate the plants, to reach in and harvest, trim, fertilize, and water.
4. Seating Area
I imagine my kitchen garden as a place of solace and contemplation. I can go there to plan menus or just enjoy a beverage and chat with a friend. I think I may want something large enough to enjoy a meal with another couple, but more than anything I want it to be a peaceful place to sit.
5. Water Feature
There is nothing more soothing than the sound of water. When you don’t live at the ocean, you need to make your own special water sounds. From a traditional fountain, to a DIY there are a so many ways to bring that sweet relaxing sound to your kitchen garden.
