Time: 1 Hours Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy

    Looks great, but I have this "compost-eating" dog! Then, I have a sick dog...LOL He loves to dig, so I had to add doors to mine. Used an extra pallet and some hinges. Keeps the dog out and it works!

    Love the idea but concerned with the trend to use pallets. pallets are treated with chemicals and often soaked in oils and if they originated in foreign countries, who knows what is in them. Outside it is a concern with food gardens but inside it can be toxic. ant thoughts? my husband suggests using new rough wood fencing for the rustic look but of course them we aren't reclaiming wood

  • That's a very valid point, Judy. I will have to look into this a bit further before I use them again.
