How do I know where to plant my vegtables without making it overcrowded? I don't want the beans to overtake all the space like last year.

In addition to its design or layout, paying attention the number of plants in the garden will help. If the garden is becoming too crowded, it may be due to having too many plants for the area provided. These articles will help with design ideas as well as the suitable number of plants recommended. Also, choosing bush-type beans and other plants can help alleviate spacing issues, or grow vine and pole crops vertically, such as on a trellis. A fence can also serve as a trellis for beans, peas, tomatoes and vine crops. Corn stalks or sunflowers is another great way to take advantage of vertical space and will work especially well for growing beans, encouraging them to grow up rather than out. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/vegetable-garden-design.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/choosing-the-size-of-your-vegetable-garden.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/family-vegetable-garden-size.htm
