If you love using pallets to build new stuff, we found this is a great DIY garden idea.
After cutting a single pallet into 3 equal pieces, Tanya proceeded to build an awesome planter for her strawberries.
This great planter can be used to plant all kinda's of different fruits, vegetables or herbs.
She says that she almost didn't do this project.
“It’s a clever idea but I’ve steered away from trying it myself because I suspect that they’ll require constant watering and erosion control and also because I’m not convinced that they’ll work long term. Almost every image I’ve found of pallet planters look to be newly planted rather than a tried and tested design.
Still I was interested in the idea and with the gift of eight pristine wooden pallets, I started scouring the internet looking for alternative tutorials. Ones that offered increased stability, more soil capacity and better aesthetics. Eventually, after finding nothing that really jumped out at me, I came to the conclusion that I’d have to come up with my own design. After thinking about the process for this post I’m quite sure that anyone who is comfortable using a hammer and hand-saw could complete this project too.”
