Fenced Garden

I noticed my youngest son playing his video game having such a good time so to get him "unplugged" I figured building a fenced garden would be a good father and son project for the summer. I we asked out local Costco store to see if they wanted to get rid of some pallets. We got about 20 wood pallets from them. We broke them down and assembled the fence brackets on the ground. We decided to bury the longer boards about a foot below the ground. If I could suggest it probably be a lot easier to purchase the wood then to take apart wood pallets LOL. A lot of the pallets broke apart while trying to disassemble them causing a lot of frustration. But it finally came together and it looks pretty good considering it was made from free wood. It measures 11.5'x22.5'

  • Such a great Father and Son project! The garden made out of pallets was a great idea, and turned out amazing! We know you're enjoying the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor :)

  • This is such a good job and it was great for your son!  I like the rubber walk way you made in the center.  Thanks for sharing pics of the "veggies of your labor" & it gives me such good ideas.  I have pallet wood right now sitting in my driveway waiting for me to get to it.  Thanks for sharing.
