Eco-Friendly Outdoor Patio: Gutters on this Longwood, Florida, home direct runoff into a rain barrel. A hose connected to the rain barrel makes it easy to hand-water a few pots nearby. A rain chain also guides water from the roof into a large pot.
Trenching - composting by digging a trench roughly 3 feet deep and filling it with compostable scraps, covering them with alternate layers of soil. Once completed, leave them for months to break down and then plant your vegetables directly into the bed.
