Hi. This is Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. In this series we have learned everything there is to know about square foot gardening. It's a great system that was created by Mel Bartholomew in a book he wrote twenty five years ago and it's a system we can use today as well. You don't need a lot of space to square foot garden. All you need is four-four foot long pieces of wood, a couple of bolts to keep it together, some compost and a method to keep the squares separated. We have used vinyl edging to separate our squares, but you can also use pieces of vinyl strips and lay it on top as well. There are many ways that you can create your own square foot garden using these guidelines and you can come with a few of your own as well. Thank you for joining us in this series on square foot gardening and we hope that you can enjoy yours for many years to come.
