Calling all Gardeners — Great Idea for Gardening With Shipping Pallets

March 27, 2012 at 4:00 PM 2 comments

It’s break time — time to think about gardening.  Woohoo!

I like most of this idea:   Shipping Pallet Garden Wows Visitors at the Canada Blooms Garden Festival.

Check out the photos (link above).  This is the part of the project I love:

(1)  Turning pallets into a garden wall, like this:

You wouldn’t necessarily have to use this many pallets; you could use one or two.  You could paint them if you wanted or let them weather.  I imagine them used either as a planting platform maybe up against a fence, with potted plants stuck randomly among the slats and/or as a privacy screen, again with plants scattered about.

And (2), I love the look and feel of this “room:”

Again, this could be modified but I can see how using pallets to frame a seating area in a corner of the garden (or even smack dab in the middle) would be so cozy.  Imagine vines growing all over the wood.

I’m going to have to think on this and see if I can figure out how to do something with pallets in my yard.

Really like the look and the possibilities.

    I love the pallet garden wall idea! And building raised beds out of pallets is great too- and cheap! Thanks for sharing. :-)
