Herb Garden Ideas

Herb gardens have been around for centuries, when people would grow herbs for medicinal purposes. Today, herbs are more often used in cooking. You can grow various herbs for many uses, like using fresh basil in a Caprese salad or sprinkling cilantro on your tacos. And whether you choose to grow these plants for medicinal, food, or both uses, Corten Steel planters are the ideal planting vessel.

Not only is Corten Steel low maintenance, but you can choose to plant herbs in individual cube pots on your patio or deck or a long narrow planter for your windowsill. Since you won’t need to paint the planters ever, they are perfectly suitable for growing herbs.

Indoor Garden Room

If you live in an area with heavy snowfall and no sun, an indoor garden room could be great for your garden plants. This space will allow you to garden year-round and create an indoor vegetable garden, flower garden, or other types of garden designs.

And since Corten Steel planters are more cost-effective than other types of metal planters, require no long-term maintenance, and are popular among garden designers of all types, they are perfect for indoor gardening. Simply plant your flowers or plants in planters, place them in a sunny location, and keep them watered. However, the weathering steel may not change into the deep copper-colored patina as if it were outside.
