Provided that it is permitted by the apartment building's management staff, it is possible to have a raised garden box while living in an apartment. The most common form of this is square foot gardening, but container gardeningis a popular option as well.
Square foot gardening can be a little costly at the beginning because it requires some set up. The most common setup is a 4x4 garden, but apartment dwellers can make itsmaller to fit their space. They need to build the box, and then separate out their smaller squares within the box's space. Each square allows one to two plants, depending on what they are. For those who want something less involved, container gardening uses containers like wine crates, and they can easily be moved as needed.
