Organic gardens are another popular trend in backyard design, as knowledge of the origin of foods and their growing methods are increasingly sought-after. As organic gardens don’t use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides on their plants, they are safe for children. Studies have shown that organic fruits and vegetables contain up to 50% more vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients than intensively farmed foods. Organic foods also have higher levels of many disease-fighting antioxidants and essential vitamins, including Vitamin C.
Organic gardens are also low-maintenance, making them a good fit for those of us with many responsibilities and little time.
