Well of course! Why did I not think of that! I got very inspired when I saw this. Look closely – a simple bench to display planted herbs and a few veggies. A little corner to tend for some organic plants with aromatic goodies to be used in summer cooking. I am pretty hopeless with anything green but I have learned that if I gather plants/flowers in one collective area — then I tend to not forget them. (I need to see a forest in order to see anything it seems…).
So to me this is a brilliant idea! Friendly, functional and so pleasing on the eye too. And it works in both large backyards and on tiny balconies.
For a little bit of organization these chalkboard plant markers from Crate & Barrel might come in handy.
Or why not a chalkboard rock project together with kids or friends?
Admit it, these are pretty tempting summer projects — even for you!
