Woodworking, gardening, landscaping, home improvement—they're all concepts that scare the average home maker. That's why the good news is that you don't need any of them to make your own herb garden!

Whether you want to work it into your garden or create a DIY system for inside the house, there is always a way to find a great spot for a herb garden, which is something that will drastically improve your home. 

A herb garden at home is the perfect idea for anyone with a green thumb or someone trying their luck at the idea of growing their own goods. But that doesn't mean that a garden should be a difficult thing to add on to your fabulous home, in fact a gorgeous green garden might just be the perfect way to ease your mind and be stress free, enjoying the outdoors on a smaller or larger scale depending on the size you have available to you.

A home garden with sweet smelling herbs will allow for easy access to your favourite and pleasantly scented goods, making your home a beautiful living space from the inside to the outdoors. Herb gardens have so many medicinal qualities, not to forget mentioning the sheer pleasure of being able to access fresh herbs whenever you need them.

Choose the herbs you love most

Deciding on which herbs you love most is the first step to having your own lovely homely herb garden filled with bliss and pleasantries. An outdoor space with greenery and beauty that serves a function too, may be the your new favourite home area after all! 

When choosing your favourite herbs to add to this lovely area added to your home, try choosing functional herbs, something that you will enjoy the smell of… and make use of often. So visit your local garden and potting store to see which herbs are available and which ones you can use to add value to your home.

Useful herbs such as those for cooking, like coriander, rosemary and thyme makes cooking a special and flavour enhancing experience. While other herbs such as lavender have other medicinal values and is a must-have for those struggling with insomnia.

Assess your space constraints

Once you have an idea of the herbs you would like to cultivate at your own home garden, have a look at the home space available to plan your perfect and elegant garden within the comfort of your home. 

If you are in the planning stages of making your home beautiful and smart, then perhaps look at incorporating a garden such as this within your home, bringing the outdoors inside and incorporating this fabulous decorative aspect within your home too!
