Use pallets in a garden to create vertical gardens, window boxes, potting benches and compost boxes. Raised garden beds can also be made with the help of pallets.
Pallet seating offers a low-cost seating option and the ability to recycle old wooden pallets. A simple bench arrangement can be made with pallets and various tools, including a nail gun, drill, brackets, screws and wood planks. An orbital sander, sandpaper, seat cushions and throw pillows are also needed to complete the seating.
Raised garden beds allow herb and flower gardens to be lifted in their own garden boxes, where they are better organized and kept safe from certain pests. Pallets provide the framework for these gardens. They are also used to create vertical gardens, where the pallets are stacked and leaned against a wall. Place different plants and potted flowers on the rungs of the pallet to make an interesting garden piece on the patio.
Make a simple window box by cutting pallets and nailing the sides of the box together. Attach it to a windowsill, and fill with plants, potted flowers or succulents. The pallets can also be cut to create a larger box that works as a garden compost box.
