Got a question about this project?

    Seeing edible plants in the examples makes me worry whether this is pressure-treated wood. Which has arsenic.

      @Kathleen Cassidy If pallets are going from country to country they are generally fumigated

    What would you use to keep the soil in and water not wash everything out.

      @Rita Rodriguez That is my questions even tho I see plastic ,I think on the very bottom to hold soil & water but need something on each level , Maybe ? ?

    this a really cool idea!

  • Suzan

    To hold the soil in, line the inside with weed control fabric, fill with potting soil, then nail an old piece of plywood over the back. Drill some holes in a couple of pieces of pvc pipe and cap one end, then shove the pipes, one for each side, down

      @Suzan your suggestions were great. I just found this site and decided to follow you so that I can contact you should I run into any problems. I am a senior and this looks like something i can do without too much bending. I have trouble with that.

    This web address takes you through a lot of stuff that is not related to the 7 steps of making this pallet garden. Basically, the back is covered with garden fabric (by stapling it very well). Place it with the back side down while adding potting

  • Truckers Edge

    I really wish vegetables/herbs could safely be grown this way.

    • Deborah Sale-Butler

      @Truckers Edge They can, as long as you use a heat treated pallet. Look for an "HT" stamp on the wood.

  • Lizz Evans
    Lizz Evans Clarksville, TN

    This is a great idea for those of us who have trouble bending and limited space. I am delighted. I would like to share this with a friend whom I am certain will want to try this. Once the herbs and plants grow it looks pretty and it can be painted

    Wondering about that Also. Where are the steps covered?

    They can be grown safely but you must find a pallet that has not been treated.

  • Christine Davis

    I love to garden but have arthritis in lower back, I'm hoping this is easier on my body
