We love our gardens. There is always a sense of contentment and tranquility that comes from observing either a single flower or the patchworks of color and texture in a well-tended garden. The same feeling comes from seeing fresh herbs spilling green and sweet-smelling out of a container. We simply can’t get enough of it.
If you’re short on garden space but love the idea of fresh herbs, this simple pallet project could be the answer.
The freestanding vertical garden frame and planter boxes are both weather resistant which makes them suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
All you have to do is revamp the pallets by replacing bad boards with new ones and attach two wooden legs on the sides below to make them stand. Paint the pallet, label, or design it to your liking and you’re done!
While you may think we’re presenting the idea to look easy, we agree that working with pallets is almost always a challenge. But if you have a pallet breaker this project will get a lot easier! (Learn more about DIY pallet breakers here.)
Planning on using pallets to make your space-saving herb garden? Don’t forget to choose the right kind of pallet. Though the wood here doesn’t come in contact with the plants and soil, chemicals present in some pallets can still contaminate your herbs!
Think this is the right kind of herb garden for you? Then learn how to do it now! 🙂
