Step 1 Find a location for the garden. Make sure it is in full sun. Make sure it is easily accessible. Step 2 Think of the shape you want your garden. Step 3 The easiest way to build a small vegetable garden is simply to carve out a small areas of your garden and plant your edibles, amending the soil to make it as rich as possible. Keep in mind building a small raised vegetable garden will be easier to care for, stay safer from pests. Step 4 No matter where or how you build your vegetable garden, you will want to use a rich soil with lots of organic material. Vegetables are heavy feeders and they will grow best with plenty of water, good drainage, sun and nutritious soil. Step 5 Whether built on soil or a solid base, always make sure you have good drainage. Gravel makes a great base layer for drainage. Also consider watering systems if you can’t depend on rain. Most vegetables and fruits will not forgive drying out — even once — so make sure you build your vegetable garden close to a hose. Step 6 Having a small vegetable garden will not only help feed your family with more flavorful and healthy food. And building and maintaining it is a fun project for people of all ages.
