Make a Pallet Fence that will cost you nothing

DIY 11.03.14
Pallets can be found so many places for free. And you can make all kind of great things from them. We have made this from light weight pallets. Here goes: Drill some supporting pallet boards to the walls - like 2 or 3 on top of each other. Drill the first pallet you see on the left of the picture to the supporting boards. Drill the following pallets to the previous. Do the same on the opposite side. If you do not have a wall to fix it on, then find a log that you can put down in the ground to fix it to. On the pallet you will use for a gate place some strong hinges and a lock on the other side. For extra support put some boards or small logs in the front and/or back to keep it solid. Happy hunting and building

    Try contacting your local disposal company, sometimes they get pallets they're tossing...

    I did something like this once. My horses were using a utility pole as a scratching post. They had it bent over a little by the time I noticed. I used t-posts and slid pallets over the posts. Worked like a charm.

    Check with your local tile distributor or sales store. That's where we get them free.

    How have you secured them into the ground? - I have put some up to direct customers to the toilet area, buried about one plank high in a sea sand area but they are very wobbly.

      @Sheleen, we did not secure them into the ground at all. We used self-tapping deck screws (like drywall screws, but will not rust) and screwed them to each other in a zig-zag pattern. Self

    We also put down some planks as you can see on the right side of the dog - our ground is very hard so I guess thats why its not wobbly at all - in see sand I probably would support two pallets against each other like a trellis besides planks in the

    What a great idea! And one person's "trash" is another's "treasure". I love the natural look. I have an area I've been wanting to which I wanted to add more "privacy", this would fill the bill. And I could add climbing roses or vines of some type. Thanks

    I like it, especially lined with wire fence. We have problems with coyotes and heat here in the desert Southwest. This would be especially helpful to protect any fowl and I bet you could use it for a covered area for shade and air flow. Great Idea.

    I love this so much, but my yard goes in a slope and not sure who to do this. But really would be such a neat idea.

    You can also use fencing 'T' posts to brace them vertically... just drive them into the ground as they go right thru the slats. You can also use a 'T' post for the 'hinges' - just put one T-post at the very end and, voila!...you have a hinge. I'm
