Intensive planting is a gardening method in which plants are more closely spaced than in traditional row gardens. Though this causes a small drop in productivity per plant because of competition, weeds are shaded out, total crop production for the area worked is increased, and soil supplements are more effective because of the reduced space in which they are used.
