    Would love to make the sand pit one were do i get the instructions?????

    suggestion- make a few extra benches and use them to cover the whole sand box when the kids are not using it- it will keep all the neighborhood kitties out of it- You do not want them to come in and use it as a giant litter box.

    Just looked at the actual patterns- it does cover the whole thing- great idea.

    What happens when the weed mat gets holes in a couple of years and the sand starts escaping? Better to have it in the ground IMO.

    These type of things just amaze me. I have worked with many pallets and all I have to say is… They must have gotten some really good ones somehow.
