Using Herbs in Your Landscape

Herbs in your landscape provide many benefits to your garden, including aesthetic appeal, pesticide control, and nutritional support.

Choose the right herbs for your soil, climate, and desired effects, and you'll be enjoying their benefits for years to come.

Even if you don't consider yourself to be an accomplished chef, you are sure to have experienced some tastes that appeal to you, and that you wish to cook with.

Decide your purpose for the plant, and what it will look like when placed in a particular area. This will give you a good idea of where to place it.

Since you will be growing other edibles in your landscape, think about what herbs will complement them when you are cooking or baking.

Maybe you want to strategically place insect-repelling herbs such as lemon balm and basil in an area where people will be spending a lot of time.
