Cheating With an INSTANT Full Pallet Garden Walkway

Love pallet projects but find yanking the boards apart too much effort? Me too! So I came up with an easy way to create a garden walkway using full pallets as is.
The worst part was attempting to get them level. I tried digging ruts at first but found it better to just flatten the soil bed before placing them down.
The best part about this project is the elevation so the walkway clears mud and rainwater. Very cool!
I don't mind if the wood rots down below... I can just replace them or come up with something new if that happens. DIYers need an excuse to create more stuff anyway. :)
Time: 2 Hours Cost: $0.00 Difficulty: Moderate

    Man, i can never find pallets with boards that close together.

      The ones I have found also only had 3 or so and I just added more pieces to fill in the empty spots. Might have to cut them a bit thinner but it works!!

    Yeah the pallets I find always have the boards at least 3 or more inches apart. Where did the owner of this post find these?

      Hi @Jennifer, I found them at a firetruck manufacturer's place. Look for any place where they ship large items. I just lucked out to find the slats so close together. They are more rare, but they are out there. :)
      And in all honestly, if you can't

    I love this idea! Fantastic! my question is wouldn't the wood become slippery when it rains? I want to make a path from my driveway to my back patio, but I'm thinking it will be too slippery when it rains. Does anyone know if this would be a problem?

      I have done this and used the 2x4 part of it and had no issues wit her them being slippery when wet.

    Where do you all find free pallets?

    Anywhere you see them ,just go up to the place and ask if you can have them. That's what I have done.
