Pound the stake you have in the ground in the centre of where your herb spiral will be.Cut a piece of string or rope to the size you want your spiral to be.A metre or yard from the centre stake is a decent size. This will result in a fantastic smaller spiral with a circumference of six feet.Cover the space needed with gravel or cut-out landscape cloth once you’ve determined the size and marked it out on the ground.

Begin laying your bricks or stones (or whatever material you’ve chosen). Because this is an upward spiral, you will gradually increase the height of your material. A good rule of thumb is to go up one brick for every two you lay flat.Keep an open space at the circle’s end. This will be the beginning of your spiral ramp and will allow the water to drain freely.With your bricks or material, create the next inner circle. You’ll go about twice as tall as your outer circle of bricks.
