It probably seems strange that this step would come at this part of the process. The reason I am doing this now is because My “soil” is not really soil, more a sandy clay. So, instead of digging the whole section up and replacing this mixture with proper soil (obviously a preferred process), I’ve decided to only use soil where I am planting the herbs.
So, as you can see in the images below, I am creating “sections” where I will be putting each type of herb.
To prevent this herb garden from being monotonous, I am using the stepping stones to create these sections. This will also help divide each herb, and enable us to plant a large variety of herbs in a small area.
