A vertical herb garden with planter boxes made out of decking attached to reinforcing (reo) mesh.





The project


I had some leftover decking that I made into small boxes. I attached the boxes to reinforcing mesh on our garage wall, which receives a nice amount of morning sun. 


The plants, potting mix, panel clips and reinforcing mesh sheets all up cost approximately $60, from Bunnings of course.
