DIY: Herb Wheel

My parents have a spectacular backyard overflowing with flower gardens, fruits, vegetables and of course herbs. My mum is always looking for a unique way to alter certain parts of the backyard. One memory she has is of a rickety wagon wheel (for ornamental purpose only) her dad had in their backyard. Since the herbs do not need a lot of space to grow, the wagon wheel becomes the ideal addition to the backyard. When herbs are collectively placed they become an aesthetically pleasing work of art. The wagon wheel I purchased is from here.
{Place the wheel in a cleared area, use a cultivator to turn the soil between the spooks}
{My soil did not come up high enough on the spooks so I added some potting soil}
compost or whatever type of soil you have will also work
 {To plant your herbs be sure to break up the bottom to allow for proper growth}
{To give it a finished look surround with mulch. }

Herbs used: rosemary, lavender, thyme, basil and parsley

  4. What a great idea! I have basil and cilantro growing in a pot. I cover the pot with some garden mesh though, because the squirrels will get in there and dig around otherwise. :( Not nearly as pretty, but functional for us.

  15. I love backyard gardens: love, love, love! my parents have always had them and my boyfriend's parents have a HUGE produce garden that they sell to stores. Food does taste better when you grow it yourself. I love the idea of putting the wheel down! what a great way to separate it.
