DIY Vertical Pallet Garden

483,729 Views
Inspired by so many pallet gardens I've seen on the interwebs, I decided to give it a try myself when I stumbled upon this lucky find. Amazing what one can accomplish with a little leftover paint and some elbow grease!
Create your own Vertical Pallet Garden to usher in Spring.
I was lucky to find a healthy looking pallet on the side of the road, so I tossed it in the trunk and brought my newest treasure home.
I asked hubby to be a dear and rearrange and reinforce some of the slats on the back.
Hubby also nailed some 1"x4"s to the bottoms of the shelves. (Arrows indicate reinforcements) He nailed a 2"x4" to the very bottom for additional support. Then I lightly sanded it to remove splintered wood.
Painted it with old leftover paint from the trim of the house.
Used staple gun to staple black gardening plastic to the back and to line each shelf.
Looked for an inspiring gardening quote to stencil onto front.
This quote felt just right.
Filled up shelves with potting soil and planted my blooms. :)

      Check big box stores. Staples and such let you take them free

    What a great idea you just gave me. I could have my hubby do a strawberry garden in one of these.

    Very nice. I would substitute some of that fabric weed barrier cloth for the plastic for mine though because the water drains thru that good.

      Thanks @@Sharon H Yes, that might be a good idea. I noticed that the top shelf loses moisture faster than the other three. Could be because of the spot I chose to place it in my yard, too. It's in full sun the entire day.
