Thought I'd have a little fun today. We all know if you want a big planter it will cost quite a bit of money so why not make one. Well that is just what I did.
I got hold of a plastic pallet but a wooden one will work ok as well if you treat it to stop it rotting away to quick
The pallet I got hold of was one that you could fit sides on so I built it up like this
Above you can see that inside I lined it with weed membrane to hold in the soil & compost. If you used one that had wooden sides you need to treat it before adding the membrane.
In the corners I glued four square wooden battens then I screwed on lengths of deck board to the battens, (if you used all wood pallet and sides the battens are not needed) & the sides. The top was finished off with more battens
Add a bit of paint , plant something in there
and you end up with something like this. I might add I did the same with a disused water butt. You do not have to use deck board yo can use just plain rough sawen treated timber. There you go nice little project to keep you happy
