Today you will learn how to make a spiral herb garden. The best part about this project is it’s easy. You can use rocks or small boulders and even bricks. We have even seen them made out of timber.
There are plenty of good reasons for growing your own herbs at home. Not only do they add flavor to your favorite recipes, but they also have exceptional medicinal properties. You can also extend the life of your herbs by freezing them in oil. This is one way to have a fresh supply all year round. You can also dry them and store them in powder form.

Before we see the video, we thought you might like to see the best way to layout your herbs. The above design comes from the Principal Designer at Ecologia, Michael Judd.
He is an expert when it comes to edible and productive gardens, food forests, and water management to name but a few. Essentially he knows his stuff!
What we particularly love about his design is the inclusion of a frog pond which will add to the health of your garden.

Thomas used misshapen limestone from an excavation site to create his drywall spiral garden. He has also included a square pond at the base.
