DIY Herb Garden that drains into the sink

DIY Herb Garden that drains into the sink

I made a DIY Herb Garden out of marble tile that drains into my kitchen sink. I cut the marble tile with a tile saw and then glued it together using clear construction adhesive. I used organic soil and herbs in this DIY stone planter to celebrate Home Depot’s involvement with the Greenbuild Conference. They are sending me and some other youtube makers to Greenbuild to check out the eco friendly materials and technologies being exhibited.

    I don’t know. It’s pretty easy to buy fresh herbs

  2. Kelvin Chan on November 3, 2021 at 10:34 am

    Hey Ben, neat build. Awesome demonstration of this concept. Thanks for the video man.

  3. Ice Castles on November 3, 2021 at 10:35 am

    I find the simplicity beautiful in your project here.

  4. +Tec on November 3, 2021 at 10:35 am

    This project wasn’t a very sustainable one though.

  5. Native-Kitty on November 3, 2021 at 10:36 am

    This was a great idea. I love it!

  6. Carla Mendoza on November 3, 2021 at 10:38 am

    LMFAO stupid

  7. w ramos on November 3, 2021 at 10:38 am

    What happened to the other planter video nowhere to be found

  8. Washable Junk on November 3, 2021 at 10:39 am

    I had a Lowe’s commercial.

  9. Daniel Bregar on November 3, 2021 at 10:39 am

    Was the glue and silicon food safe?

  10. Raynola Dominguez on November 3, 2021 at 10:39 am

    Nice.

  11. Will L on November 3, 2021 at 10:40 am

    When you gotta go back and jam the sponsor name into the "RYOBI" tile saw

  12. Shopitybop on November 3, 2021 at 10:40 am

    So pretty! Can I have one please? 🙋🏻‍♀️It’d make such a great present too!

  13. Anders Mellerup on November 3, 2021 at 10:44 am

    Love your content dude!

  14. Vein on November 3, 2021 at 10:45 am

    1.16 M sub, still using 5$ mic

  15. Brian Prusa on November 3, 2021 at 10:48 am

    Simple clean design. Love it.

  16. Aye Borba on November 3, 2021 at 10:51 am

    Those plants are gonna die… Also if I were you, I would put a piece of panties instead of the metal mesh so no dirt would go out…

  17. Ajay-en on November 3, 2021 at 10:53 am

    How food safe is all going to be? I’m sure all that glue is going to leach into the soil….

  18. ee_dash on November 3, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Hi Ben! I love this idea. It’s beautiful and elegant, but I do wonder about the glue and caulking that you put in something that should be food grade since you are eating those herb plants?? Anything else that could be used😬🤷🏻‍♀️

  19. lizzie tish on November 3, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Isn’t construction adhesive toxic???

  20. marppp28 on November 3, 2021 at 10:56 am

    I’d be worried about chemicals in gorilla adhesive😳😳 is it food safe?

  21. Marcia Davis on November 3, 2021 at 10:56 am

    This would be perfect on my counter, it’s lovely. I hope some of the comments here are tongue in cheek and people don’t truly worry about the tiny amount of water that might drip out or if the glue would get into the food chain…

  22. Small Farms on November 3, 2021 at 10:56 am

    Does the marble have to come wrapped in plastic?

  23. Cam Myers on November 3, 2021 at 10:56 am

    You know more about Home Depot’s eco projects than I do and I work for them 🤷‍♂️

  24. Eric Bruening on November 3, 2021 at 10:57 am

    Would you really want soap splashing in your plants while doing the dishes?

  25. Zoey Lowe on November 3, 2021 at 10:58 am

    I wonder how one could incorporate a lighting system for those of us with terrible lighting

  26. ArtisLeilands on November 3, 2021 at 10:59 am

    Tip: don’t use sanitary silicone (the one that stinks of vinegar), it will eventually leach through the marble (or granite) and leave dark stains. Source: have worked with stone.

  27. Billy Cisneros on November 3, 2021 at 11:00 am

    stupid f****** video bro

  28. cl4re4d4ms on November 3, 2021 at 11:00 am

    Even better if you had made it a self watering planter.

  29. DBXV HERO on November 3, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Resemblance to Thanos’ chin

  30. Coffee Dude on November 3, 2021 at 11:01 am

    If you’re concerned with the adhesive toxins, grow coriander/cilantro. Those are able to chelate toxins out of your body. But if coriander/cilantro tastes like soap to you… grow parsley??

  31. Jav on November 3, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Diy, because everyone have a marble cutter

  32. aloosh alshammari on November 3, 2021 at 11:01 am

    fabulous

  33. Madison Grooters on November 3, 2021 at 11:02 am

    that planter is overcrowded. They will not grow anymore because there’s no room to expand roots

  34. Dario Sanchez on November 3, 2021 at 11:03 am

    Bunch of faux-eco friendly corporate shilling

  35. Rick M on November 3, 2021 at 11:05 am

    More explanation on how to choose and glues , sealants that don’t leach toxins in soils and ultimately taken up by plants would be appreciated.

  36. Alina W on November 3, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Can you sell that to me PLEASE 👍

  37. SuicideNeil on November 3, 2021 at 11:07 am

    6:16 Barely an inconvenience…

  38. Michael Weston on November 3, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Why not a sink that drains into a Herb Garden?

  39. Travis Williamson on November 3, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Really neat!!!

  40. I Can Build it on November 3, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Have you heard of Saw Stop before

  41. Mark Magner on November 3, 2021 at 11:14 am

    so hes voting for bernie

  42. JM Lav on November 3, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Man made climate change is a myth. but the project is cool

  43. Diamonds Valera on November 3, 2021 at 11:17 am

    I know this is not really your channel’s objective, but that kitchen looks great. Any content related to the kitchen’s design and build process?

  44. Ram Contracting: Floor Specialist on November 3, 2021 at 11:18 am

    Good

  45. Faux ConDor on November 3, 2021 at 11:19 am

    this channel is just a giant ad…

  46. Sethimus82 on November 3, 2021 at 11:21 am

    can‘t you even cram more plants into the space? i saw some unused patches of dirt…

  47. Phil Indeblanc on November 3, 2021 at 11:25 am

    Fills up and uses watering can while a sink faucet with retractable head sits inches away 🙂
    There is a NSF rubber coating I would recommend over untested chemicals. Or at least you can cure out most of the glue off-gassing by leaving it out for a week or so under direct sunlight.
    Very cool idea, specially for a long counter. I can see this as a form of a back splash design…If you can give up maybe 6 to 8" of counter width from the 24" you normally have.

  48. Ethan Carter Designs on November 3, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Really cool build Ben!  Has me considering marble projects in the future!  Haha I like the new Mike cameo segments at the end of the recent videos also!

  49. Sherry U. on November 3, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Thankful that ads support you financially, so I don’t have to 😉

  50. Ravindra Daundkar on November 3, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Marbles does not need reinforcement for this size. Just use clear epoxy on the edges and they set for lifetime.
