Boxing up the Herb Garden
The backyard is slowly undergoing a total redo. The end results will be an undulating patio with a pergola, grilling station and scattered seating.
This means I finally get to tear down the weird detached deck built by the previous owners. It is more dock or dais then deck. Standing on the vile thing, I feel like I'm on a watch tower looking into the neighbors yards.
Before the despised deck can go, I need to make a temporary space for the grill and table. We don't want to sacrifice nice evenings outside for a prolonged construction project.
Step 1. Move the herb garden. This will let me use pavers to extend the small patio off the back door.
But I don't know where the new herb garden will be. So I am building moving crates out of garage scraps. Lining the crates with newspaper let's me easily shuffle my homeless herbs around or give them up for adoption.
If you need mint, lemon balm, oregano or catnip, let me know.
