Pallet + rope + plants = The Hanging Gardens of Pallet-on.

The 8th Wonder of DIY!

Design. I designed this pallet project to display something I love in a place I love, namely: Flowers and plants and my front porch. It takes up zero floor space. And it’s what I call an ‘open barrier’. I’m not saying my neighbors chew with their mouths open or anything. I’m just saying that IF they did…well…You get it. Here’s how I made the Hanging Gardens of Pallet-on.

Step 1: Dissect a pallet.

For the pallet I had, cutting the end sections and middle section out conveniently created the planter box…almost. I also had to cut planks off the rest of the pallet for backs and bottoms. I used my reciprocating saw to cut the nails.

Tools of choice—reciprocating saw for cutting nails, and a circular saw (cordless is even ideal-er) for crosscutting pallet parts.

Do you have anymore pics of you flexing whilst you are using tools?
<p>lol... yeah, I was wondering when someone would say something about that.</p>
<p>Don't grow food in this unless you are sure it isn't treated wood.</p><p>Various <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrethrins" rel="nofollow">pyrethrins</a> and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propiconazole" rel="nofollow">propiconazole</a> are common treatments for wooden pallets. In addition, imported palletized goods are routinely fumigated with highly toxic pesticides. During use, harmful materials or chemicals also may spill on the pallet wood and be absorbed</p>
<p>Excellent -thx </p>
well done :)<br>
<p>A very original and appealing design, well done!</p>
