    This is a flower spiral sent to me by Tammie Bean from Arkansas who was inspired to make one too. She used 'hardware cloth' or 1/2 inch mesh wire and bought rocks from Wal-Mart (Arkansas river rock). On the website it says that even people with large areas use these close to the house for the ability to quickly get the herbs needed for cooking. Good idea!

The herb spiral is a permaculture gardening method that uses nature to its full potential. Gravity allows the water to seep through the levels meaning that the plants at the top get full drainage while the ones at the bottom may reside in a simple bog. It also gives your herbs shady spots with varying degrees. The herbs that need full-sun can be grown in those positions while more shade loving plants can be located on the opposite side.

Cool downspout idea. But... would be nice to cover up Desert Sand in our landscaping too.

Gravel can be used in dry streams, under downspouts, under decks, in between cracks on patios, and in streams or water features. Gravel comes in a variety of sizes from pea sized to oversized at 3in to 6in per stone. Colors range from buff to rusty browns.

I love these!! I have to make them and put them in my entrance way/hall next to front door (or back) Less than 10 dollars. ♥

Barbed Wire Trellis - I'm actually considering making a little barbed wire fence around my above ground garden to keep dogs out

Use for all of the old barbed wire - barbed wire trellis! I'd love to do this, but you know me, and I'd end up with multiple lacerations and blood poisoning. Sigh.
