Here is a quick project that is so simple you can complete it in a few hours.  Build a vertical herb garden and make your life easier by having your herbs close to hand whilst preparing meals. I have a separate area in my yard that I use for the herbs, but just sometimes I find having to walk down the yard, especially if it is raining, a nuisance.  This way the herbs are just outside, all together and very convenient.

For this project I used an old plank, a gutter and a matching pillar. I started by cutting everything in the right size.
I decided to make it almost squared, so when it grows, it will be a lot of greenery covering the wall.


You can see the whole project was really constructed out of unused bits of wood etc. By using your imagination, you will easily visualise how attractive the finished project will look on any wall.  Once the troughs have grown you will have a wonderful vertical herb garden display.

I looked further and found this idea that you will find a great looking alternative:

A vertical herb garden was definitely the answer! We wanted it relatively cheap, and to match our house, so we went the DIY route. The best part is that there isn’t a ton of assembly required.
