Building a vertical herb garden is not only fun and rewarding, but it also adds a unique charm to your outdoor space. Anyone can create their own amazing vertical herb garden with just a few supplies and a simple ladder.
In this blog post, we’ll show you how to make an easy (and beautiful) vertical herb garden by repurposing a ladder so you can start harvesting fresh herbs right away!
I decided this year I would build a Vertical Herb Garden and place it on my deck. I love that I can move my herb garden where I need it, based on the sun or shade. Remember you can spray-paint the bucket to cover up that ugly beer logo.
Metal buckets or plastic (measure to make sure they will fit in between ladder rungs) Start by drilling drain holes into the bottom of your hanging buckets. My handles were not removable so I used frog tape to cover them while I was spraying the buckets.
I made my labels using Cameron (yes, I named my Cameo) to make the vinyl lettering for the buckets. I was initially going to place my herb buckets on the privacy fence of our deck. I quickly changed my plans after I found the ladder in my neighbor’s trash.
The little lightbulb in my head turned on and instantly said Vertical Herb Garden. I love a great upcycle ladder project so I am sharing a few of my favorites from my DIY friends. Plus, it’s inexpensive, easy to make, and is a unique way of showing off your skills in upcycling.
