One problem though was that using pallets with edibles is a bit questionable. To make it safe (or rather safer), I again used only quality heat treated pallets for this project, scrubbed it clean, sanded it, and lined it with builders film so there is a good barrier between the pallet and soil/plants. I hope!
Miss Mascara Me and my dear dad helped me with different parts of this DIY project - who would have thought dad and daughter would be bonding by doing this together! Here is how I designed and constructed my first pallet vertical garden.
The Pallet I Started With
Filling in the Gaps at the Back
Making the Planter Box Rows
Sanding & Painting
Lining & Securing it
To secure it, discarded cinder blocks I found (yay for more repurposing opportunities!) formed the support base and thick metal wire tied it to the existing metal fence.
Giving it Time to Grow
I keep forgetting to take a picture of my whole vertical garden when it's looking its best and the sun is just right ... and now I've pruned most of it! So I'll post a pic when I get THAT shot.
I love my vertical garden! Have you got a tingle to make your own one too? Go on ... its easy!
