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

Levelling the soil really well took time but was well worth it.

The pallets were then tucked into place.

Rather than bring the edge of the pallet to the lawn, I planted some alyssum pouring out of an old kettle instead. It's very cute and rather unexpected.

    How long does wood last. I thought it's not treated so would rot on the ground.?

      I would suggest placing a bed of sand then some small loose rocks under nea for drainage.

    quick and easy...love it..but where did you find pallets with wood so close together on top?
    • Hi there, it’s really a luck of the draw. It’s very seldom I find two pallets exactly the same. Keep searching until you find the right ones! 😊

    So where do you 'look/search' for pallets? I see that you cost was $0 so I'm assuming you're finding them for free.....
