Plan Description

Inspired by classic herb garden designs, this lovely circular island bed brims with water-thrifty, culinary delights. Because many herbs demand excellent drainage and require minimal watering, they are the perfect answers for a dry site. All the plants used here also need full sun to thrive, so you'll need to locate the bed in the brightest part of your yard. A sundial placed at the design's center adds the perfect decorative touch to the sunny location that herbs prefer. The designer creates the circular structure of this bed with elegant dry-laid bluestone paths that are edged with low-growing evergreen shrubs. Herbs tend to have an informal, sprawling habit, which makes a pleasing contrast to the clean geometry of the circular paths and neatly clipped hedges. For a more casual effect, just leave the hedges unsheared. You can also substitute another surfacing material, such as brick-edged gravel, shredded mulch or dry-laid brick, to match existing elements in your landscape. Where space is limited, you can plant only the inner circle of the design. If you're short on time and money, consider planting the inner circle one year and the second circle the following year. Because most herbs hail from the dry climate of the Mediterranean, an herb garden makes a practical, and pretty, solution for landscaping a site with poor soil.
