I’m convinced that growing things is good for the soul. So when you’re considering what you plant and pour your love and effort into, you have to think about vegetable gardens. They provide a place to get your hands dirty and a reason to get outside more often, not to mention they produce fresh food that you will enjoy at the dinner table.

But you can create a neat and tidy veggie garden that will help beautify your yard and be a place of relaxation. Take a look at these 10 ways to style your very own vegetable garden that will dispel your doubts and convince you to plant one this weekend.
In order to enjoy your garden, it’s important that it feels like a nice place. Use landscaping rocks around the edges and plant flowers in the corners. Basically, make it feel more like landscaping and less like a square of dirt. (via BHG)
If your garden is large and you need to walk in between your rows of plants, don’t hesitate to install a path between your veggies. You can use stepping stones or gravel or even planks of wood to create a pathway that will keep you safely off the sprouts. (via Planet Natural)
Raised beds are often made from wood and while that’s probably the easiest method for adding raised beds to your yard, installing these woven beds are much prettier. You can make them yourself if you’re inclined! (via Gorgeous Shiny Things)
Maybe you’re strapped for space in your tiny backyard. That’s okay. You can still have a tiny garden by thinking small and vertically. Just stack your squares and you can plant a tomato plant and herbs and flowers in your little corner. (via Remodeling Home Designs)
