Growing Squares: A Kitchen Garden

It's an interesting twist when the outdoors has a little bit of structure so that it feels like an extension of the indoors. That's the case with this kitchen garden in Santa Monica:

It's actually a grid of nine raised planters full of vegetables and herbs. And the centermost square is filled with water and a recirculating fountain. Made of concrete, the beds have a little more finished touch than your typical garden. We've love to have this right outside our kitchen door for bringing foods straight from garden to table! Read more about this project, designed by Kathleen Ferguson Landscapes, at Sunset magazine.

Do you have a kitchen garden? Is it right next to your kitchen or do you have to trek a bit? How do you like the one we've featured here?
