Lawn Mower Catcher Herb Garden




Introduction: Lawn Mower Catcher Herb Garden

I wanted to make my own herb garden but didn't want to pay lots of money and wanted something funky. I ended up looking for something at a second hand store here in Christchurch New Zealand and found some lonely lawn mower catchers for $1. I thought this would work great, it is both funky and cheap.
