A Healthy Garden With Half the Work

Mixing ornamentals and vegetables throughout the garden instead of dividing it into separate sections means you'll save time and take advantage of the benefits of companion planting?growing different plants closely that benefit each other. Examples: Garlic planted near roses helps keep the aphid population in check. Radishes alongside spinach will keep the leaf miners away. Tall flowers provide shade for lettuce.

And instead of planting in straight lines, stagger your plants in a slight zigzag pattern. They'll actually absorb sunshine and water more evenly if they're out of each other's way, says Mary Moss-Sprague, Master Gardener and author of Stand Up and Garden: The no-digging, no-tilling, no-stooping approach to growing vegetables and herbs.
