Build your own herb garden box to use in your garden, your patio or even your balcony with this guide. Herbs are easy to grow and if you raise them where they will be easy to harvest you are likely to use them more often than you would if you had to hike out into your landscape in search of your favorite item. Because you can build an herb garden box to any size, you can grow your own herbs in either large or small spaces. A nicely designed herb garden box can be a decorative asset to any place you choose to install it.
Cut four corner supports using two inch by two inch wood for a herb garden box that will be roughly three feet in length. A smaller box can use smaller-sized supports. A larger box might need extra vertical supports added along the length depending on how long it is. Cut your supports to be the depth of your box. Make sure your box is at least 6 inches deep to accommodate the bottom of the box yet still provide plenty of soil depth for plant roots inside.
Drill and screw the supports to the bottom length of wood. Drilling a pilot hole before screwing will help to keep the wood from splitting. You can use nails, but screws will give you a tighter and more solid fit. Another advantage to using screws is that you can always take apart your herb garden box easily if you need to in the future.
