This is the coolest gardening site - on the Gardeners Supply Company website you can design your own garden beds by clicking and dragging the plants you want, where you want them. Then you can print your planting map w/ very detailed planting directions.
(herb garden idea) Got Pallets? Don't feel like turning up a bunch of grass? Use a pallet as a garden bed - staple garden cloth on the backside of the pallet fill with dirt and start growing! Courtesy of: Backyard Diva
