Upcycled Wood Pallet Walkway

See how you can turn a couple of old wood pallets into a garden walkway, perfect for keeping feet dry and keeping weeds in check!
Find some old pallets. You want solid wood pallets that are in good shape, free from cracking, mold, mildew, or tons of nails.
Consult the post for measuring your pallets to the perfect width. Use a circular saw to cut them down to size.
Continue to cut piece by piece. Apply the wood pallet pieces according to directions to form the perfect walkway.
In no time flat and for the cost of little to nothing, you have an attractive and functional wood pallet garden walkway!

    Will the boards rot if they are directly on the dirt? Love this idea, but afraid it will rot after a year or two. ??

      That could probably be said for most wood based garden projects. We haven't had any issues. Knock on (pallet) wood.

    I am putting the pallet wood over mulch. I drilled holes in the ends to anchor them. It’s coming out awesome. I plan on spraying them with Thompsons.
