Rows or furrows Growing vegetables in straight rows allows easy access for tending, staking, and harvesting, and you can weed with a hoe instead of bending over to work between plants. By planting in rows, you can reconfigure your garden each season and customize it according to what you want to plant. And sometimes it just makes sense to plant in rows, such as when you need a deep trench for planting leeks so you can easily backfill as the leeks grow.

Blocks or wide rows Planting in blocks can solve the unplanted space issue. Rather than planting a long, single row, you can consolidate the plants into a wider area and sow seeds closer together, either by scattering them or creating multiple rows within the block. Either way, you won’t need space for excess paths. Continual harvesting prevents the block from becoming overcrowded, and the plants can continue growing without taking up too much space. Rows can be as wide as you like, but avoid making them so large that you can’t reach into them to weed and harvest.
