Patio Herb Garden

Our neighbor had a new blue stone patio laid in her backyard two years back to replace an old, improperly-constructed flagstone patio that wobbled when walked upon. I’m not sure whose idea it was to include the circular herb bed in the middle of the patio, but I love it.

The herb garden is approximately 3 feet in diameter, and it’s generally planted with thyme, sage, chives, oregano, parsley, and rosemary. The sun-warmed patio seems to help the herb garden to off to a solid, early start each spring. It’s central location gives easy access to the herbs and makes weeding a breeze. The herb garden is one of those things that I wouldn’t have previously thought of including in a patio design, but now that it’s here, I think it’s great.
