The design of a small urban vegetable garden is very important because in this way the site area allocated to it will be used at maximum capacity to provide decor and sufficient production for family use. In this paper, we studied the way of designing an ornamental vegetable garden on raised beds with different heights and the appearance offered by them. The environment, the way of preparing the site and creating the raised beds will play an important role on the vegetable garden composition spectrum. According to the information gathered from preliminary research some visual results regarding the development of the plants will be evident from the first week of planting due to the different heights of the raised beds. Vegetable and medicinal plants such as curly kale, mangold, patisson, lavender, rosemary, basil and other ornamental species such as French marigold, silver ragwort, fountain grass, will offer the ornamental value. Most species had a good production and development in V1 (40 cm above ground level). Instead, mint and leeks had higher values in V3 (at ground level) and V2 (20 cm above ground level), respectively.
