DIY: Make a Keyhole Garden


Ever heard of a keyhole garden? Me neither…until now. The concept is simple & basically an elaborated raised-bed garden. This garden adds a feature that saves transferring & placing compost where its needed.

The project is fairly labor intensive so make sure that you & your crew are ready for some PT (physical training) to complete it. That being said, what suggestions do you have to simplify or enhance this build?

    I figure you needed about 180 – 200 bricks— is that right? Did you mortar them or just stack them in place? Looks beautiful. How was your growing season? Any problem of bricks falling out when it rained and the dirt was soaked? (Wet dirt is extremely heavy and I figure it could push out bricks and cause a cave-in —o r cave-out —if they were not mortared in place.)
