I wish I could take full credit for this genius idea, but I originally saw a similar version on Pinterest. Modifications I made to my herb bed:
- Added locking wheels. Since I live in the Pacific Northwest where days of rain can water log my little plants (early season) I wanted to be able to move it around -- also helps with getting the sun. You never
know what time of day we might get that precious five minutes!
- Slatted the bottom and lined with weed fabric for drainage.
- I used untreated cedar wood
I must give credit to the person who originally blogged about this awesome idea! Art and Appetite at http://www.artandappetite.com/2011/04/desert...

I love my Trane...if you are needing a new A/C or Furnace or both as I did...make the
investment. It is so quiet, my utility bills are down, and the air is like soft surround comfort. And don't forget your filters...I buy a 12 pack case yearly of cheap filters and change them monthly...small price for your investment.
I took lattice panels that had been in my back yard and put them around my front porch to create a little sense of privacy from my very close neighbors. I plant mandevilla vines growing up them in the summer which creates a nice touch of red in spots on the lattice.
