Ever since I saw this awesome pallet garden at Life on the Balcony I wanted to make one.
Well Pallets here in So Cal are hard to come by. DD and I went driving around on Friday and found zilch. I get that everyone recycles them, I just wanted one! So DH decided we could build our own out of left over fence posts and boards. I think they were left over from our raised beds. So here you go, the process and pics.
DH laying out the boards. We spaces them a little wider, which meant we had to make little pouches under each tier with the landscape fabric to hold in the soil.
Here it is wrapped with the landscape fabric. Since we used old fence post and redwood fence boards the sucker was heavy!
Here it is put in place next to the gate that leads to the back. I filled with flowers, which hopefully when they fill out will look better as they grow down and all over. In the summer I may put in some strawberries!
All watered and ready to grow! The ladder is one I got at a garage sale, it has plants hanging from it and a fern growing at its feet.
Love how it turned out. Still want to find pallets, have you see the awesome pallet sofa, Donna at Funky Junk Interiors made. It is awesome!
There is just so much to be done with a pallet. Now to find some!
Have a great week,
