Keep reading for a way to get a raised bed FREE! The herb beds I added to my yard for stock plants have been filled with compost and were ready to plant. I wanted a unique way to separate the herbs in each bed. I love rocks and my mom has a big creek on her property with wonderful sandbars and rocks! I bring home rocks every time I visit her. Bill's favorite comment when I return is, "Oh, I'm so glad you brought home more rocks!". Of course, he is being facetious - he doesn't get it at all.
Anyway, I went through my rock collection and selected some small to medium stones to divide the beds into sections. I planted one or two herb plants in each section. I even planted a sedum in a depression in this mossy rock.
Here are a couple of my favorite beds.
|Sage, Lavender, and Thyme in a sunburst shape|
|Oregano and Lavender in cross|
|Free bed is indicated in green|
