We have a relatively large yard (about 1/3 acre) in an urban setting, we have one side of the house dedicated to a small veggie garden and a buffer zone and then the chicken run, it is 16 foot wide and 28 feet long. Inside that we have a 10 X 8 foot hardware cloth wrapped run and a large coop sized enough for at least 10 birds). So all that said, we had a wonderful mexican petunia and buttercup garden once, which has now been reduced to a moonscape (sand and devoid of anything. I was wondering if anyone has suggestion on how to plant something it it, perhaps closing part off and planting and rotating their access? Any suggestions would be great. The rest of the yard is all tropical gardens and pools and sitting areas for guests so they cannot roam outside of their dedicated area.
