Here's the big reveal for the herb bed that my neighbor, Dotsie, and I recently built! We live next door to each other in a zero lot-line community. The south side of my house is next to her driveway. It's basically the only sunny part of our lots because of the wonderful mature trees we have. Here's the before:
|I discussed this idea here|
Here's the sequence:
|Prep work for brick border|
|The border completed|
|Ready for planting!|
The shrub that we left in the center is a beautiful gardenia that we just couldn't bear to remove, it's so happy there!
Here is Dotsie's front door. See how the new herb wall ties in with her existing brick borders? The the variegated lirope is echoed in her beds...
We're really looking forward to playing with our new herb bed! Some spring lettuce may be in our future as well!
Let me know if you need any masonry work done. We were very pleased with this gentleman.
