Pallet Fence: Re-purposing pallets

cottage 6 hours ago
This is a fence I made for my garden using pallets and old pickets from a fence that had been torn down. When I ran out of the old pickets, I used pallet boards and cut them to match the pickets so I could complete the project. My fenced area is 30' X 40' and I still had pallets left over for other projects.

  • The fence is being installed.
  • The garden gate was made from pallets too. The arbor was made from my childrens' old sandbox. We cut the large boards down to build the arbor.
  • The fence is almost finished.
  • Here is a picture taken from my bench at the back of the garden looking towards the arbor. The fence is complete. Now on to making the garden look pretty. This will take awhile.

    Absolutely love it! Now that I see yours, this is the kind of fence that we would really like to put up. Any suggestions on where to get pallets with little or no charge?

      Cheri Schumacher I found all the pallets at a local business that had them piled up outside. They allowed me to take all I wanted (free) since they were going to burn them.

    Thank you! I will have to check some of the stores around here. I know that some of the stores send them back, to be used again. Wish me luck!

      Cheri Schumacher Good luck! I got mine from a small heating & air conditioning business if that helps. Maybe the smaller companies would be willing to give them to you.

    Oh wow! Ok, so, you totally get the kudos of the day for a new and unique take on pallet transformation! I love the upcycle of materials and I love that it doesn't scream "I'm a pallet!!". Great job!
