Pinterest Project – Pallet Garden

The long awaited second Pinterest Project is finally here! Let me tell ya, this one is a doozy. Plus it wasn’t because I’ve been lazy that this took so long to post, this has been a very dragged out project that unfortunately sent Mr. H to the doctors and ended with stitches and x-rays! I have been wanting a garden ever since we moved in here and had a yard, but it’s always been one of those things that we plan on doing & it just never happens. I did all my research and emailed Mr. H and finally a couple weekends ago we set out to make this pallet garden. We already had about 4 pallets in our backyard thanks to having pellets delivered in the winter for heat so that wasn’t an issue. Unfortunately the pallets had seen better days and were very hard to take apart. We used 2 pallets and cut them into 3 pieces each, Mr. H was trying to pry the boards off the pallets when the hammer head shattered and actually shot into his chest. He didn’t think anything of it at the time and just bandaged himself up and continued to work. Fast forward to a couple days later & he can actually feel the hammer piece inside of him. Sure enough the hammer was still inside his chest so they ended up cutting him open to try and take the piece out. Long story short, the hammer piece is still in there and will forever stay. We finally finished the garden last night & I can finally post this amazing garden creation!

You will have 6 pieces of pallet in total after cutting them, nail 2 pieces together to make the front and back of the garden. Using one piece for the ends nail the edges together creating your pallet garden. We also used rope to quarter off each plant, I wanted to start off small and only plant a couple things since I haven’t had much luck in the past with plants. Our garden has been doing amazing, but we have a visitor who apparently decided everything looked very tasty and started digging everything up. I managed to save almost everything and in turn we put this netting around the whole garden along with some lights on the edges & one inside.

I was inspired to make this garden by looking at Crafting Creatures post about their garden, although I didn’t do everything exactly the same & we also just eyeballed everything.

Follow me on Pinterest & help me pick what I make next!

  1. This is a neat idea. I am collecting pallets to make a shed-found a neat picture where someone had done one. Good heavens, after the doctor bills this was an expensive garden-but glad everyone is o.k.

  2. This is such a cool idea!!! Thanks for linking up to “Strut Your Stuff Saturday!” Hopefully we’ll see you tomorrow at 8pm MDT for this week’s party! 🙂 -The Sisters
