layout of a potager in an irregular space
I'm new to this, having only gardened veg. in two raised beds this year, but I have the potager bug and am ripping out my lawn to satisfy this madness. HOWEVER, I will not have a nice rectangle or square shape to work with. I imagined a nice grid system of raised beds with paths bisecting them, and all leading to something wonderful in the center (sundial, fountain, etc.)
I DO like straight lines for order, and then I plant madly within those limits. My question is: how do I get the organized layout I'm looking for within this irregular shape? I feel as though I'm trying to force a square peg into a round hole.
Any help or ideas would be so appreciated, thanks, Sandra in Maryland
