You don`t need a Git repository for every directory, but only one
repository for the root directory, and it will track everything all the way
down from there, recursively -- everything you tell it to track, actually,
as Philip already mentioned.
Note again that Git tracks _files_ (content, to be precise), so if you have
empty directories, or directories with untracked files only, Git won`t
bother with those directories, as it finds them irrelevant, no content to
track in there.
That sad, you certainly _can_ have more Git repositories one inside another
as there may be valid reasons you would want to do so, but that usually
involves some more Git knowledge, and might be you shouldn`t be bothered
with it for now :)
