Pallet-Gardening(Responsible Pallet Usage)

Some days it seems like my whole identity here is pallets(and some granite tile for good measure). I really don't hate DIY. In fact, some DIY is pure brilliance.

I'm fortunate to have good readers that send me good stuff along the way(yes, even DIY stuff). I was unfamiliar with Life on the Balcony, but I'm a devoted reader now.

Fern(head balcony guru) over at Life on the Balcony has used pallets to create gardens. Now, I like to do some patio gardening but would have never thought about this!

This is really good-looking stuff! I know that it's December but you can start your planning for next spring now.

Dirt on pallets.... Seems like I've said that before. Ha!

Fern even created a pallet garden that attracted bees and butterflies! If you don't like bees, get with the program... how else do you think all our pretties get pollenated?

So there you have it... RESPONSIBLE pallet use. I love it... Even think I might like it hanging on the wall!

Here are lots of links you need to check:

and just for funsies.... 


  1. DIYs are good resources for unorthodox but effective methods. You really just have to make time to try things and sort those that work.

  2. didn't you read your own article? http://www.cupboardsonline.com/2011/04/when-trends-attack-shipping-pallet.html

    1. I did! As you can see in the title, I'm all about responsible pallet usage... Responsible really just means leaving them outside to me, and providing it wasn't stolen from behind a business.

      Pallets aren't all bad... they're just bad indoors.

  3. A lot of people have this picture posted as an herb garden on Pinterest and other websites - apparently there is come confusion as to what is safe to plant in it.

    1. I think you'd be ok having it as an herb garden as long as you knew that the pallet was new(or at least not used to transport anything toxic) and that it's kept outside.
