Spiral Gardening for Small Phoenix Spaces

Spiral GardenFor most of us, Phoenix offers the wide open spaces the West is known for, so staking out a plot and gardening isn’t that big a deal.  But for those who live in condos, townhomes, or patio homes — where space can sometimes be a precious commodity — a spiral garden solves the problem of limited space.

Instead of building out, build up.  You can use pavers, block, old concrete or rocks and just spiral your way up to the top.  Then just add in your xeriscape plants (it would make an awesome herb garden!) and wait.  You can run a small irrigation system from your hose bib to the top, or it’s easy enough to water by hand.  Just don’t forget!

Besides it being an efficient use of small spaces, a spiral garden also allows you to tend your garden without having to do a lot of bending.  Plus, they’re great conversation starters!
