Ornamental Pallet Vertical Shade Garden

  • 1 pallet

  • easy

  • 9h

  • free

Shady plants deserve their time in the "sun" too! I wanted a way to feature some of my shade-loving plants, and came up with this Pallet Vertical Shade Garden! All the materials were lying around our property.

This easy and decorative Ornamental Pallet Vertical Shade Garden can be built in only a few hours!

Materials I used:

  • 1 pallet (notice I cut two of the bottom deck boards along the center stringer)
  • 5 to 7 old fence boards or extra pallet boards
  • Upcycled nails
  • Weed barrier
  • Potting soil

First, I cleaned up an old pallet I had in the yard. Next, I cut two of the bottom deck boards at the center stringer and removed them. I cut them in a decorative pattern, but adjust to your plant types. Then I upcycled some old fence planks that I sanded to remove dirt and splinters. The planks were attached to the top of the pallet to fill in the gaps. You may have to pull a couple of the top deck boards off and rearrange to your needs. I used those cut-off pieces (trimmed down to fit) to create the bottom of the planter boxes. I cut two more pieces to fill in all the planters. Sand any areas you need.

Have fun and make this Pallet Vertical Shade Garden in any configuration you want!

Now would be a great time to seal the wood with a sealant of your choice - or not. That's the beauty of pallet crafting! Line the planter boxes with weed barrier to keep the dirt from washing out. Leave enough extra to fold over at the edges so you can nail or staple it in place and to prevent tearing. Be sure you push the barrier down into the corners so when you fill it with dirt, the barrier doesn't tear free. Place the planter where you want it before you add potting mix! It gets heavy quickly. Fill with your favorite potting soil mix, add your shade-loving plants, and enjoy!
