Rain gutter herb garden. Slant gutters and water will drip down to gutter below. You could also take gutters and attach them to wood. A 1×4 or 1×6 would be a good size, paint as desired. Attach mounting hardware for easy hanging. Don’t forget drainage holes if hanging straight. Galvanized steel or copper is a better choice for the environment than PVC. aquaduckraingutters.com
