EXCERPT

A Kitchen Herb Garden perfect for any backyard or deck.

Putting the garden together is rather easy and be customized many different ways. We chose to use galvanized containers because I have a lot of them – so many, in fact, I made a Christmas tree out of them. However, any selection of planters would work. We also used a small vintage door but that could easily be replaced with painted plywood or stained hardwood. Or, you could create something similar to this project.

Supplies:

4 containers

Door or plywood Wood for bracing

Screws and washers

Rocks for filler

Empty bottles and cans for filler

Potting soil

Herb plants of your choice
