DIY Vertical Planters From Pallets
Vertical planters made from pallets are best for decorating the front yard. If you have old wooden pallets in your store, you can recycle the old pallets. Making planters from pallets is a creative DIY idea that can improve the beauty of your garden.
Garden planters made from pallets can be used to plant flowers or for herbs as well. Here is a guide for garden planters made from pallets:
Take an old wooden pallet. You can find 1 in your storeroom, or you can get it from your nearest local store. Make sure that the pallet is in good condition and it is not too rough.
Use a nail puller to remove the slats to give it a proper vertical shape. Do this step if it is necessary. If the pallet is already in vertical shape then no need to do this.
If you remove some slats, you might need to fix them again in a vertical direction. You need some more nails and a hammer to do this.
Once done, now you can paint your vertical pallet box with your favorite color. Allow your vertical pallet box to get dry in the open air for 1 day at least.
Now it is time to close the bottom end of each portion of the wooden pallet. You can either use a wooden sheet for this, or you can use waterproof fabric as well. If you use waterproof baric, then you can use a staple gun.
You can also close the backside of the entire pallet by using a vertical fabric or a wooden sheet. It totally depends on your liking and disliking.
Now, your vertical pallet planter box is ready. Put the potting soil in each portion of the pallet boxes and plant your flowers or herbs in this box.
You can keep these planters made from pallets in your garden or you can also keep them inside your room to use as an indoor pallet herb garden.
