Tiered Herb Garden


  • 2 stair risers
  • Window boxes
  • Paint (optional)
  • Paint Brush
  • Wood Screws
  • Drill
  • Fresh Herbs
  • Soil


  1. At your local hardware store, buy two sets of standard stair risers. Most hardware stores will cut lumber, etc… to your desired size.

  2. Choose a paint color of your liking for the risers.

  3. Buy wooden window boxes of the desired width and simply screw into the stair risers with a drill.

  4. Plant herbs as directed. And remember, herbs need to get a lot of sunlight and rest in well-drained soil that isn't too rich. The more sun the leaves get, the stronger flavor they will provide. Be sure to trim back any dried or dead leaves as the herbs grow.
