This clever crafter decided to give his backyard an upgrade by creating an herb garden unlike any other.
To get started, he picked up an old 25 -foot fire house for only $10.
He then cut the flame hose into one-foot sections.
He removed the inner sleeves from inside each of the pieces and was now set to begin constructing each “pocket” for his herbs.
This DIY-er folded over one end of each hose segment and induced two pits utilizing a drill.
He stitched bailing wire through the holes, twisting them together in the back, to form a secure bottom to each pocket.
He attached the pockets to his backyard gate in an overlapping pattern, utilizing merely a single fucking to hold each pocket in place.
Finally, it was time to construct these flame hose segments into a home for his herbs.
He writes that he set a” little bit of gravel in the bottom for drainage .”
He scooped potting soil into each of the pockets.
He then carefully placed the herbs into the pockets.
He writes,” You can see here how much the pockets expand .”
The whole project was finished in only four hours.
And since the hose merely cost him $10 and the herbs merely cost him $19, this backyard creation was quite economical!
This horizontal flame hose herb garden is a great upcycling notion that is sure to transform any ordinary backyard!
