You cannot miss the beautiful sunshine falling on the herbs and the herb plants looking ethereal amidst the surroundings.

As with hues, the contours define the gardens – oval, circular and rectangle they all look awesome with the symmetry. Also an arbor and trellis adds to the charm of the outdoor space. Thin, upright foliage of rosemary, sharp but broad leaves of flannel, feathery leaves of foxtail ferns they all look perfect in the space designated for the herb garden.

Adorn these herbs in raised garden beds and surround with hems of periwinkles and purple orchids. The herb garden is definitely going to look magnificent with this enchanting contrast.

Moreover, the herbs drive away the harmful insects and pests. Line the herb garden with marigold and lemon grass, not only will the ornamental garden look pretty it will also leave the air pure and fragrant.

Space garden benches and gnomes to enjoy your garden during the leisure evenings. Stroll around the herb garden crossing the bridge and enjoy your morning tea with fresh herbs straight from the garden.

Add a unique structure and texture to this herb garden with ornamental herbs. Augmenting it with rustic elements, picket fence and demarcation herb boundaries with local flora will certainly enhance the garden.

A structured ornamental herb garden has herb plants neatly contained either in containers or outdoors. Walking in your herb garden should be exhilarating and invigorating. Also a neatly contained herb garden always looks better than a casually formed. It also shows how much effort the gardener has put into – designing an herb garden is certainly not an overnight job.
