A Little Garden Walkway Out of Pallet Boards

546,963 Views
Desiring a way to walk from my driveway to the lawn, I decided a chunk of flowerbed had to go... and instead, created this easy pallet wood walkway in just a couple of hours!
These planks were found in a pile of pallet wood rubble. The slightly thicker boards make water run off a dream.
They haven't been treated with anything, and are still going strong 3 years and counting!
Here's how I did it:
Time: 1 Days Difficulty: Easy
Welcome to my little pallet wood garden walkway! Doesn't this resemble a beach boardwalk? Very simple to make!
Here is the before shot. I desired to reach the lawn from the driveway. So let's get to work!
Removing a few shrubs was the first step. Then new soil was placed, so it would be nice and workable around the boards.
Each plank was positioned into the soil for stability. A few plants and rocks later, it was done.
There is no sealer on this walkway. It's shown while wet. But you could certainly seal it with something outdoor durable.
This is the walkway at 3 years old!

    Are they anchored to the ground? Or is there some stabilizing sand underneath the dirt to keep them from sliding around?

    Love the idea, especially since I am just starting landcape projects in my back yard, and I can get free pallets whenever I need them.

    Hello Four Season Nursery! They aren't anchored. The soil has embedded around them just enough to hold them in place. Full details are on the blog link I've posted above if you wish for a step by step. They work awesome!!
