Creating edible landscape planting and maintenance can be a lot of work in the beginning but it pays off with all the fresh rewards.
Keep a small sketch of your plans in front of you to inspire you and help motivate you as you work in your new garden area.
Your routines will keep it in good working order, and allow it to thrive. Keep your edible landscaping maintenance high on your priority list, within reason of course.
Enlist the help of each family member. Perhaps each one could be responsible for a certain portion of the garden, or certain plants within the landscape.
If something goes wrong with your edible landscape, deal with the problem immediately.
