palletWhen you see this what do you think – firewood?

Having recently converted some wooden pallets into a boardwalk to divide my veggie patch, and yesterday acquiring some more from a builder who didn’t want them, it got me thinking about different ideas for recycling these ‘unwanted’ items. Here are a few images of projects I’ve trawled from the internet and a few links to sites with ideas on how to convert your pallets into useful objects around the garden (and further afield)- furniture, planters, walkways, fencing,buildings  – the ideas seem limitless and the process fun. A sort of ‘grown up Lego’!

Do you have some ideas of your own not shown here? I’d love to hear from you and see your photos!
