Make a Pallet Garden in 7 steps


Gardening is a relaxing activity that makes you feel better and you can suspend your anxieties and give yourself over to the peace of Mother Nature. What’s that you can do all of this helping to recycle and reuse pallet wood, realizing a lots of beautiful creation?

Discover a simple way to decorate your balcony or your garden, respecting the nature: A Pallet Garden!

Learn how to create your homemade vertical garden:

1. Find your pallet. To find free pallets try in stores that carries large equipment.

2. Collect your supplies. You will need: your pallet, two bags of potting soil, six-pack starter plants of annual flowers, a small roll of landscape fabric, a staple gun, staples and sandpaper.

3. Clean your pallet. Use the sandpaper to smooth any potentially dangerous spots. If you are going to paint it, paint it with water-resistant paint.

4. Staple the landscape fabric. You need to cover the bottom, back and sides of your pallet with landscape fabric, so choose which side of your pallet you want to show. Lay your pallet face down, and then roll the landscape fabric over the entire back. Staple the fabric into place near the top edge of the board, and then pull it taut. Repeat the stapling process on all four sides of the pallet until the back and sides are fully covered with fabric.

5. Staple again. Staple along the spine of the pallet and anywhere you think soil could fall out of the pallet. You can’t over staple this project.

6. Plant your annuals. Plant with your pallet laying flat on the ground, so bring it close to its final spot and lay it top up. First, slide the plants into what will be the top. Once the top is capped, pour the entire first bag of potting soil into the pallet and push it through the slots. Repeat this process with the second bag. Then, plant at least six plants into each open pallet slot.

7. Show Off your Pallet Garden. When you’re done, you should have plants completely covering each opening and the soil should be hidden.

Now, you can enjoy your “green” creation!
