Creative Outdoor Pallet Gardening
Gardening with wooden pallets has moved from a creative idea to a garden trend. Good-quality wooden pallets are safest to use for pallet gardening, and ensure the pallets don’t contain harmful substances. Sturdy, clean pallets are best if you can find them. Check them for stamps because wooden pallets are sometimes treated to prevent pest infestations. Heat-treated pallets display the letters HT, and they are safe to use. Don’t use pallets that bear the letters MB. They were treated with a toxic chemical called methyl bromide. Wooden pallets can be used to transport hazardous chemicals and other dangerous substances. So try to find unused pallets or pallets that held safe products, such as food. Preparing a pallet for gardening involves making it clean and solid, and covering its open side with landscape fabric.
Wash the pallet with hot, soapy water, and let it dry overnight. Nail down all loose slats and other areas where the joints seem weak, and sand rough wood with sandpaper until it’s smooth. In pallet gardening, plants grow between the wood slats that cover one side of the pallet. The back or open side of the pallet has no slats. Landscape fabric covering the open side holds in the potting soil.
