Step by Step Instructions for Vertical Pallet Garden
The use of pallet wood to make many different kinds of furniture is a very popular now globally. People use just small amount of money to make very useful furniture. It is not possible for everyone to buy new furniture every time as inflation has increased a lot so many people like me go for used recycled pallet wood and construct the desired piece of furniture.
I am sharing a very unique piece of my work on diy pallet garden which I did with great enthusiasm and interest. It ended up so well that I really got excited to do some other DIY project that I can share with all my blog readers.
Measurement and Size:
First of all I am sharing the approximate dimension of vertical pallet garden. The height was around 50, width as 22, Depth being 8 and over all weight as 25 lbs. The size is basically idea for small patio area. You can make your garden absolutely great by merely having this vertical pallet garden and properly managing it.
Dissemble the Pallets:
I had collected some pallets from a construction site after getting permission from the owner without paying anything so the first thing I did was to dismantle the pallet and separate the planks. Since I wanted to give a vintage and a rough look so what I did is to keep the pallet planks as rough as they were, I didn’t do any sanding or painting to give my vertical pallet planter a new look.
Cut and Join:
After disassembling the pallets I started working on my project, using a simple saw I cut the planks in an equal size and then started joining these planks using the wooden glue. I created the vertical structures also joined all the planks completely to make boxes so that later on the plants can easily be planted.
Grow Your Herbs:
When the planter is ready you need to have small ceramic pot on top that has to be filled with water and is carried through a drip system so that watering the plants becomes an easy thing. The base level is kept in such a way that it allows the drainage and air flow. You can grow Herbs, perennials and other small plants in pallet garden.
I didn’t use paint or wax to give it a different look but this depends on your choice if you want to give a different look you can paint or wax the pallet planter.
