In this updated edition, bestselling author Mel Bartholomew, an efficiency expert with a background as a civil engineer, explains how to grow a wide range of plants in a small space with less weeding, less watering and more production. The process involves dividing the planting area into 1' squares and precisely planting within them, as well as growing vertically on low-cost frames, arches and trellises. Bartholomew also offers tips for incorporating an automatic watering system, configuring planters in alternative layouts and using a variety of materials and growing media when constructing planters.

Beginners can follow the step-by-step instructions easily, but even veteran gardeners will find lots of valuable information, especially regarding space efficiency. Color photographs and helpful tips throughout.
