IMPORTANT NOTE: If you aren’t using a perforated liner, or something that allows water to drain, you’ll need to, carefully, put holes in your plastic after stapling it to your pallets.

    I had the same idea and got a? stack of pallets because I live near a steel mill. My husband did not know how he was going to make the raised beds with them so I made him watch the video and he said it was easy. He was going to buy some of those at walmart for 30 a piece and I mean tiny ones. Oh no, momma is cheap and now he said that looks actually fun the way you did it. Thank you for your video. It was a blessing for us. God bless.

    what a great idea. I’ll do a couple for my 82 yr old mother, no bend gardening! And since I think my garden got some “killer compost” I’ll do this for me too. Could you maybe put a bit of chicken? wire around/over to keep out the goats … or a solar electric fence wire? keep up the good work

    I like this and if you do not have a tiller and we have chickens that way they stay away from your plants as well.Thanks for? the idea and will let you know how things turn out.

  • freddiemercurious 5 years ago

    What a great friggin’ idea!! I like how it’s raised to standing working height, but not filled from the ground. Less soil depth, good working height. Like it!!!?

    Drainage??

    Sounds like your next project should be a pallet fence! : )?

    They are still working well. Unfortunately, my goats got most of our produce this year, but the garlic and onions, which they avoid, were amazing. ?

    if you put the pallet bed on a slant. then you could put in a drain and catch the water and? reuse it. would that work ya think?

  • dax parko 5 years ago

    dont you put holes in the plastic for draining? and msybe use organic lawn weed block fabric…plastic is a bit hazardous yes?

    My wife almost puked? from the camera work. Good idea though.

  • muddysneakers 5 years ago

    I wish I could get some NICE *free* pallets in my area, but they have become popular with folks and more often than not you have to pay $2-$5 each? for them. Sometimes you can find free pallets, but they’re usually warped and pretty ratty.

    Great idea ,,I would use the open under space for my rabbits !! just leave one end as a chicken wire gateway to place water/feed …I like the bunny poo for garden and compost tea and with our high heat? of summer keeping rabbits cool is a big issue,,this concept would solve the heat stroke bunny trouble as they would stay well shaded ..drought has forced me to go container garden and most crops I grow would do well with the pallet style easy water saving/back saving style you show-Thank You

  • gardenjeannie 5 years ago

  • escapefromobamastan 5 years ago

    Very inspiring. ? I actually just started getting into vegetable and fruit gardening late last year and? after doing my research decided to start out with a raised garden bed. It is about 12 ft wide X 5 ft deep X 12 inches high and was a great learning experience. The pests were the hardest and most frustrating part to deal with. Please take a look at it on my Youtube channel and give me some feedback. I love to learn from others. Thanks.
