Check out how we made our own DIY herb garden! :) You'll only need a few supplies to put it all together. I love that It doesn't take up much space. So it is perfect for decks or patios. :)
This was an easy weekend project!
You'll need (7) 8 foot cedar boards.
You'll also need a box of wood screws, and then a few power tools & other supplies. You can find the entire supply list over on my blog.
We cut out all of our boards first. You can get the measurements we used over on my blog.
Then we assembled each trough like this with the wood screws.
Check out my blog post to see how we attached the troughs. Here's what our herb garden looked like completed.
Then we planted our herbs.
We love our new herb garden!

    I saw a take on this project with wood pallet. Fantastic. I want it for my balcony.

    Do you line the boxes with plastic?

    What color did you use? Was it paint or stain?

    Love that color!

    Great idea. I think it would be great for cascading plants or strawberries maybe. May need to adjust the number of troughs.
