A little walkway out of pallet boards

This quick little project really couldn't be easier! Reclaimed pallet boards were used to create a new walkway through a flower bed. The planks make it an absolute dream to weed by simply lifting the applicable board, and are just high enough to clear any water run off. And yes, they are staying in place and have shown no rot in over 3 years thus far.
Time: 1 Days Difficulty: Easy
Placing the planks in a slight curve as well as random alignment made for a slightly more interesting take.
Decide where you desire your pathway to go, and make it happen! This was after a few shrubs were pulled out and new topsoil was placed.
Here's a picture from year #2. It held up as if it's still brand new!

    this looks great but they dont really look like the pallet boards I'm used to seeing-these look more like 2x4 or4x4's ?

      @Susie I agree, Susie. I was thinking they looked much too large to be pallet boards

  • Reneesredos

    Did you set them in sand or just on top soil. Are they wobbly?

    Must be sanded and then be treated and varnished.

      @Roelof Hartzenberg Varnish doesn't hold up outside on wooden surfaces...you can only stain them like a fence...

    Use a fence paint that gives a stain look, and seals the planks.

    Use varathane to seal outdoor wood. It's a marine grade sealant, used on boats too.
