This is my first build of a planter box out of reclaimed wood pallets. It was a terribly easy project – cut boards to width/length, screwed them to a 4″x4″, put in a base. I think for my next pallet planter box project, I’ll also include some shelving on the bottom.
I got the wood pallets from a construction site down the road, the screws were screws I pulled off of an old shelf unit and the only material I had to purchase was the fence boards as the siding. Overall, it was a very cheap and extremely easy project. The box itself holds 450 cubic yards of soil which is perfect for a nice big planter! The overall sizes of this planter box are 5′ x 2′ x 18″.
