Pallets Add Function and Beauty to the Landscape

Upcycle old pallets into fences, compost bins, planters and even sheds.

You’ve probably seen pallet planters. Old pallets are lined with landscape fabric to hold the soil in place. Slits are cut into the fabric and plants inserted.

Use planted or unplanted pallets as dividers and fences. Dress them up a bit with paint or fill the empty space with interesting stones and moss.

Create the framework and dividers for your compost pile with old pallets. Wire the corners together and it is ready to go.

Or create a shed if your pile of pallets continues to grow. Check out the various websites that offer design options and constructions guidelines.

Many people are worried about the environmental impact of using pallets. Look for HT on the pallet and initials of the country of origin. This denotes the pallets were heat-treated.

A bit more information: Pallets with MB means they were treated with the pesticide methyl bromide. Avoid using these pallets and opt for those that have been heat treated. For more on this, click here.
