My Front Yard Slope Project


I do not like my front slope, hard to mow! I looked around for some ideas and found a pallet garden idea ... I'm not done yet but I think it'll look great when I am. I need to add another pallet to the left and stairs or stepping stones in the middle - then voila - next year maybe veggies !

I put the pallet down, then filled with top soil

I cut pieces of wood to stand vertically so the dirt doesn't go through each section and end up at the bottom in one big dirt pile ! lol

I went shopping for plants and found the perfect combination! the colors look great - not sure if you can tell from these photos though

View from the side .. maybe I need to paint the wood ? I'm going to give that some thought. Thanks for looking!

    Instead of painting the wood, I would probably just line the outside of the pallet w/some old &/or recycled bricks to give it a finished yet natural look. Nice project & thanx a lot for sharing! 😎
