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!

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.

    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.
