Smart Squares

The Smart Gardener Team listens very carefully to your feedback. Many of the Smart Add Ons we have, and will continue to offer, are in direct response to your remarks and comments. While keeping the basic product as clear and simple as possible, Smart Add Ons let you personalize Smart Gardener with additional functionality and content that is specific to your garden, growing conditions and interests. One of our newest Smart Add Ons, Smart Squares, was created in response to your feedback and requests for Square Foot Gardening capabilities.

Smart Squares is based on a square foot model for French intensive gardening. The Add On converts all appropriate plants to the standard Square Foot Gardening layout and measurements. In some cases where plants are grown vertically, we’ve changed plant heights and necessary structures in the Smart Garden plan. The biggest advantage to using the square foot method is growing more food in smaller spaces, but there are other benefits like using less water and less weeding.  If you have limited space for a garden, or just want an abundance of fresh garden goodies without too much extra work, this one is for you!
