Lovely herb garden Jojo! I like how you have all the aromatics together for your enjoyment. That's a good idea to have them on a path you use a lot.

Really? The individual squares look bigger to me! Did you put down a weed / grass barrier before you put down the sand? I have a lot of grass that I would have to kill.
I didn't put down any barriers because it used to be part of the garden. We just scooped the dirt out and put in the boards then put the soil into the boxes and then spread sand around them.

Absolutely gorgeous! I want to do this in my front yard. Are those 4x4 posts you used?
No they were rough cut slabs from the sawmill nearby. They still have bark, etc on the outside and were very cheap. My DH and DS chose the best and straightest ones and sawed them to make the boxes 4'x4' with the individual squares being 2'x2'.
I thought that looked like bark, but wasn't sure if maybe it was leaves. Neat!

This is my herb gardens third season. I love the different scents, shapes and colours all in one place. It always makes me smile.

I featured it in my blog today with more pics and descriptions of what is growing.

jojo! What a beautiful set up. I would spend all evening in that section of garden. Stop, smell, move on. Stop, smell, move on. Stop, smell, move on. You get the picture! :D

Oh, that is very nice, Joan! It's so tidy and orderly, makes you feel rather peaceful just looking at it. I saw a program once featuring a similar garden with instruction on how to build it. I can't remember now what they called it though. It was associated with a certain era of European gardening, I think...

ETA: I bet those dividers do a great job of keeping that mint in line! :cool:
It puts me in mind of the formal English gardens also, similar to a Knot Garden. Very beautiful.
