Welcome to Square Foot Gardening – a gardening blog written by garden enthusiasts, for garden enthusiasts. We launched this site because of the lack of comprehensive resources about gardening, and the amount of confusing information on the web. Square Foot Gardening aims to be the top gardening blog and directory for those who are green fingered, as well as those who are just starting out.

Gardening Tips

There’s a lot of information on gardening around the web, and so we wanted to build a simple, easy to use site where you can simply get great gardening tips. Whether you’re a complete beginner and need help in certain areas, or are an expert gardener who’s stuck on a certain project, our website is a great resource for learning how to create the perfect garden. Simply browse our garden tips, or send in your own, letting us know what works for you.

Creative Garden Design

Designing your garden can be a difficult task, so our blog aims to be a source of inspiration. We list landscapers and gardening experts who can help, as well as providing photos and articles about garden design, so you can create the look that you want.


It can be difficult to find quality supplies when you’re doing a gardening project, and that’s why Square Foot Gardening have dedicated part of the site to finding the best suppliers around. This includes specialists in fencing, patios, and other gardening projects, so you can order online or over the phone, and get everything delivered.

When you’re starting to garden as a hobby, you’ll often wonder which supplies to use, and what will give you best value for money. By putting together a list of our favourite suppliers, we aim to help those looking for gardening goods, and perhaps even recommend something new to keen gardeners.

Expert advice

Gardening is a great hobby for many reasons, it provides fresh air and exercise, and means you can watch something grow in front of your eyes. However, many are put off as they don’t know where to start, and find it difficult to follow the huge amount of advice online. By creating a simple to use site, we hope to encourage more people to take up gardening, and we offer expert advice that’s tailored to suit all levels.

Love of gardening

What motivated us to start Square Foot Gardening? In short, simply a real love of gardening. Everyone who contributes to our site is someone who loves their garden, and enjoys keeping up to date with new trends, new gadgets, and much more. We often update our blog from the comfort of our garden, usually typing with green fingers, and we want to share our love of gardens with the rest of the world.
