Small Space Gardening
Practical Pallet Gardens
Welcome to the wooden pallet gardening craze. Urban gardeners are leaning against outside walls, hanging them inside apartments, all while growing vegetables, herbs flowers in places no typical garden would grow.
Pallets are great space-savers because they let you grow vertically! Better yet, your flowers, veggies, and herbs will be safe from weeds and animals.
Get fancy with your wooden pallets. There are tons of trendy DIY pallet projects-- from flooring and fencing to furniture and tables with plants and flowers budding through the slats!
Lean your pallet against a wall or fence to add height and visual interest to your yard. A standing pallet garden is also easier to maintain; no more bending over to water or weed!
Choosing Your Pallet
You can often find wooden pallets for free at landscaping centers, nurseries, grocery stores and hardware stores. Make sure there are no nails sticking out of the wood or loose boards.
