    You could use the breathable perforated cloth they use for ground matting under mulch and decorative rock that you stop weed growth with and staple or nail that to the boards and throw a little dirt in the pocket which is made from stapling every strut on the board. Then you put your herb in each pocket and you can move the herb board in case it gets to much sun. This is handy if you use herb instead of just grow them for looks. No weeds and no soil diseases, unless the potting soil used is bad

    @The831Z: The idea was to use tropical, epiphytes, that normally grow on trees in the tropics. They don't have their roots in soil like we tend to manage them. The following year, Jim dismantled the plants from the board and reused them in another design.

    i have seen other projects like this, as like the other people dont think about the plant in long term, roots will come out and will get root rot….smashing the roots can damage the plant and kill it, not cool….first think of what your doing before doing it, so you dont come out looking dumb and stupid, big fail in my opining lol
