The garden itself is about 1800sqm, but the real patches for flowers and vegetables are much smaller ...
That's likely a big garden on 1800 square meters (.44 acre) of ground.

In all the seasons with gardens, all the locations, I have never had a garden on a hillside. It makes me wonder if I could be successful with that. How I might follow contours. How terracing might work.

From last sunmmer I seperated it into several smaller areas, and arrange the plants according to different conditions like hours of direct/indirect sunlight, wind, shade...and etc. So far I like the progress :D

Having the harvested potatoes with grilled chicken for dinner, and made a stew with purple kale, carrots and lamb neck for tomorrow, I love homegrown veggies!

often times i've noticed that in language use overseas the word "gardens" is our "lawn" or "backyard"...

Ah, yes

@flowerbug , but consider the above.

Ha! I have no idea :D.

(And, I doubt that @Phaedra Geiermann has a sloping yard necessary to concern herself with the calculation.

Steve
Noooo~my math is only elementary school level :eek:
But okay, sloping yard is precise, but in fact the entire area is on a slop, so maybe I should say a sloping garden :p

so what is the difference between "garden" and "backyard" :p

i would say that gardens are things that don't include lawns, wooded areas, bushy plantings that aren't really maintained and various other things often including rusting cars on blocks and random bits of towing chains, hubcaps and bits of wood stacked at odd angles. :)

aka grasses (even ornamental sounds mental to me as i do not like grasses much at all and don't want them in my gardens) are lawns and backyards or the yard in general is often more considered the grassy areas and not the flower beds or vegetable patches.

now for the really fun part things get very interesting when you consider permaculture and food forests and other edible shrubbery and such. those i do actually more consider gardens than many other things that people do. i for one don't really consider a rock garden a garden at all. it's mulch, decorative or not, and i do like rocks so it's not like i'm biased against them (see the website for pics of how much we do like rocks :) )...

i hope this helps, or perhaps helps confuse things further? :)

Another sunny day, collected seeds for next year, Lupine, Chive, Scallions, and some Allium.
Besides, it's also sowing time for fall vegetable~

For chives, I used to directly burry the entire head into the soil, the effect is quite nice.

A lot of Lupine (pink, white combination)
