Edible landscaping incorporates food plants along with ornamental ones. Having an edible landscaping is very easy and cheap. Not only does it present us with homegrown produce, it also protects us from buying produce that have been tainted with so many chemicals that can harm us and our loved ones. You can generate a small orchard by starting with dwarf or semi dwarf apple trees. You can also plant vegetable in pots like eggplants or cherry tomatoes in your edible landscaping. They will look fabulous once they start growing. If you have a wide area for growing pumpkins, go for it. Remember to place a low fence around it to keep rabbits and other creature from raiding your plot at night. A small scare crow can work to some extent with these varmints.
