A DIY Vertical Garden With Those Amazing Pallets

Why garden out when you can garden up?  This DIY vertical garden can be placed almost anywhere.  If you live in an apartment or have a small yard this is perfect.  Maybe your patios needs a pick me up.  You can change out the plants every year for a fresh and different look.  Thank you to Life On The Balcony for bringing gardens to small areas.

The first thing you need to do is–obviously–find a pallet. I’ve had good luck finding them in dumpsters behind supermarkets. No need to be squeamish. It doesn’t smell. At least, it doesn’t smell that bad.  Don’t just take the first pallet you find. You’re looking for one with all the boards in good condition, no nails sticking out, no rotting, etc. If you intend to put edibles in your pallet, be sure to find one that was heat treated as opposed to fumigated with pesticides.
