I love this idea---- Herb Garden Idea - short of space? These fragrant herbs have been planted in between pavers as a mini kitchen garden between the house and and pool. Edible ground cover is a great space-saving idea + softens hard landscaping.
Although I dont think ours would ever be this neat, I do like the idea of a hedge of some sort - that is safe to put in veggie gardens to create a 'secret garden' somewhere. even if introduction into the veggie patch.
