How to Start a Veggie Garden in Your Backyard

How to Start a Veggie Garden in Your Backyard


How to set up a backyard vegetable garden will largely depend on your garden’s size, sun exposure, and wind exposure. You ideally want to choose an area of your garden that can fit the sized veggie garden you want, is exposed to both sun and shade throughout the day, and isn’t exposed to high winds. Once you have chosen the ideal position, either dig in an in-ground bed, or opt for an easy Raised Garden Bed. Fill your garden bed with good quality soil and you’re ready to plant!

Don’t have the right sun and wind conditions? You can still have a veggie garden at home! Simply plant in a Hydroponic Grow Tent to create the perfect growing conditions.

How Often To Water a Vegetable Garden

How often to water a vegetable garden will depend on which vegetables and herbs you have planted as well as the weather. Generally speaking, most edible plants need watering at least every second day. Make sure you research the watering needs of your specific plants so that you don’t under or over water them. In hot weather, water your plants more frequently as the heat will dry out the soil quickly.

How To Make a Veggie Garden With These Top 5 Products

Garden Beds

First and foremost, you’re going to need something to plant all your vegetables and herbs in. This Set of Raised Garden Beds is the perfect beginner’s option. By having two modest-sized garden beds, you can plant vegetables that need more water in one and those that need less water in the other. Make sure that you allow enough walking room between the two beds so that you can easily kneel next to them and access your veggies from all sides. 


You’ll find that as your garden grows you will likely collect a number of tools, soil, fertiliser, and other gardening equipment. Unless you want your backyard looking like a dig site, all of your gardening equipment will need a home. If you don’t already have a garden shed, this Outdoor Storage Box will keep your gardening supplies safe, dry, and out of sight.


The last thing you want after you have spent all that time planting and tending to your veggie garden is for someone to come along and steal your veggies. That’s where this Bird Net comes in handy. It will keep out all birds and even possums and rodents that might come nibbling on your garden at night.


All gardens need water. The bigger you grow your backyard veggie garden, the more you’ll find that a mere watering can doesn’t do the job. A Retractable Hose is a terrific option for keeping your veggies well watered, retracting out of sight when not in use.


Whether you’re carting soil around in the planting stage, tending to your garden with mulch or fertilizer, or are harvesting your veggies, a wheelbarrow can really come in handy. For most gardens, a full-size wheelbarrow is unnecessary as it takes up space and can be difficult to manoeuvre. That’s why we suggest this Garden Dump Cart Wheel Barrow, the perfect size for a backyard vegetable garden.
