I’ve been a fan of pallets for the longest time because there are so many projects you can do with them. One of them just happens to be a planter for the garden. If you’re in the mood to get started on some planter DIYs, check out a few of my suggestions below.
1. Raised Pallet Garden
Turn a portion of your yard into a pallet garden. Begin by cleaning your pallets and turning them over. Then, cut and lay on a sheet of garden fabric on top, making sure to leave a few extra inches to go around the ends. Staple the fabric in, and turn your pallet over again. Then, staple the overlapping pieces of fabric to the top. Once you’re done, add your topsoil and place your plants in.
2. Easy To Build Planter Box
This versatile planter box adapts to the size of the panels you have on your pallets. That being said, the longer your pallets are, the more planks you’ll have for your planter box.
3. Upcycled Succulent Planter
Don’t forget to place pocket trays in your upcycled succulent planter. To do this, simply attach your landscaping fabric to the top panels. Remember to start from the back to the front.
4. Cascading Flowers Planter
Once your plants are fully grown, this cascading flower planter will look like a beautiful bush in your garden. Give your flowers extra care by making sure to water them every day, as the holes in the planter can easily dry the soil.
5. Rainbow Pallet Planter
Use 2 coats of acrylic paint on your pallet boards, but don’t forget to let the board dry before applying the next coat. Finish off with a layer of varnish once you’re done.
6. Jam Jar Planter
Have a few empty jam jars to spare? Use them in your next planter project! Start by drilling and screwing hose clips to your pallet. Place your jars in to check if the clips are tight. Then, take your jars out, layer in your gravel, soil, and chosen plant. Place it back on the pallet once you’re done.
7. Hose Holder With Built In Planter
For extra storage space so this hose holder with a built in planter is on my to do list! By the way, Dave recommends using the nail gun and securing everything in place even if the wood glue hasn’t dried just yet. Doing so will ensure a sturdier piece.
8. Planter Centerpiece
Pallet pieces secured by L-brackets will give you a new centerpiece to place on your table. You won’t even have to worry about the box leaking because you have coconut husks hidden inside to catch and help absorb the water.
