Raised Pallet Planter Box

  • 2 pallets

  • easy

  • 4h

  • $30

This is my first build of a garden 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".

NEVER use recycled pallets for growing food or children’s play (ie sand) as you don’t know what the pallet was previously used for. Could and most likely chemicals or something you shouldn’t be eating.

as long as it has the letters “HT” on the side of the pallet it has been heat treated, Not chemically.

Great for kids play too as an alternative to the sand tray. Soil over sand any day……it’s a medium we should all become more familiar with?

Steph Buchan, I stand corrected 😂😂 (there’s even storage underneath)

if the water cant pass the bottom the wood is going to rot quite fast Oo put some holes inside the bottom so the water can drain…
