DIY Upcycled Litter Box Herb Garden

By Savvybrown @savvybrownblog

I was all excited the other day when I picked up basil, parsley, rosemary, sage and a few other herbs from the farmer’s market. But not so happy a week later, when a week later, in my kitchen, they all seemed very wilty and unhappy.So I decided to brave the neighborhood cats in favor of more light and plant them in the backyard on the deck alongside my other veggies. One problem though.

No planter.

Lately, I’ve been making sure to “shop my house” before I run out for something new. This is from experience: Sexy found 5 bottles of mustard I’d gotten one year from BJs for a BBQ hidden in a cupboard years ago (This is why I’m not allowed to shop in big box stores alone) and he still makes fun of me. Well after poking around in the basement, I couldn’t find any pots big enough to plant all the herbs in together, but I did find an old kitty litter box that I used to use when my first cat was small(er).


Now before you freak out on me, I cleaned it out thoroughly with water, Borax and peroxide before doing the following:

What you’ll need:

  • 1 clean litter box
  • Drill with 1/8” drill bit
  • Potting Soil (I like Miracle Grow Organic Potting Mix)
  • Herb plants (small)

Drill at least 10 holes in the bottom of the tub with the drill. Fill with potting soil , then plant your plants. That’s it.


The herbs seem to be very happy now, and I can’t wait to use some fresh basil for dinner tonight!
