Luke Keegan was tired of his front yard, so he wanted to do something spectacular with it. Specifically, he wanted to transform the old lawn into his own garden. The final outcome is truly a work of art given that he built and designed everything from scratch.

He filled up the planter boxes with free compost unused by the city. He then sowed his first seeds. According to Organic Life, when building your garden and ensuring high yield from your seeds, you want to make sure to use "deep, organically rich" soil. This lets the roots of your plants grow more.
