Hexagon planter boxes are an attractive and unique way to grow plants on your deck or in your backyard. Build a few of these planters in different sizes and heights for an impressive alternative to rectangular raised garden beds.
A few weeks ago we blogged an article in the LA Times about No-Dig Gardens. They require less water than traditional gardens and they're an easy way to start a raised bed. You can even start one right over a patch of grass you want to get rid of. Our friend and coworker, Hulda Nelson, tipped us off to the article. Then, last week she started her own no-dig garden and helped us out with some step by step directions.
Raised Bed Gardening with grey sandstone wall, limestone wall capping, stunning specimen Olive tree and mixed (Rosemary, Hebe etc) compact ground covering plants. The result is an eye catching focal point within the patio area as well as a useful seating area.
