Pallet Project Update

Well, as it’s been some time since I did a trawl through the Facebook site ‘1001 Pallets’, I thought I’d have a look and, yes there are a few new ideas using pallets or other recycled materials in garden projects. I hope that you enjoy them!

Make a compost bin to achieve the satisfaction of turning kitchen and garden waste, into rich, crumbly compost. This will make your plants and crops thrive – so keep them, and your local landfill site, happy. Find the link here.

I like the simple, but elegant, design of this planter and I guess you could make it relatively easily, perhaps using recycled/pallet timber?

‘You tried sweating it out in the sauna, you can’t let go in a yoga pose, and om isn’t exactly hitting home. And no wonder—you’re working too hard at relaxing. What you need is a place to sit quietly and contemplate the sounds of nature: birds chirping, breezes blowing, brooks babbling. What—no backyard brook? Not a problem. Just build yourself the next best thing, with a softly trickling garden fountain…’
