Pallets Patio Fence

It started with a discarded wood pallet I saw that begged to be used as a canvas. I had no idea what to do with it once I painted on it, but I brought it home anyway. Then I saw this website with the Wood Pallet Garden, and I decided to collect a couple of pallets for that too. Soon an idea was born – get another 2 pallets and put them all together as a privacy fence for our patio. So I painted the center pallet, used 2 pallets to plant flowers and herbs in and placed 2 more in between with armrests across the top. We used recycled lumber from our son’s dismantled play fort (we saved it, knowing it would come in handy sometime) – the uprights and armrests come from that. Instead of digging holes and pouring concrete, we used metal stakes that hold 4×4’s and are pounded in the ground, 30 inches deep. Those stakes, some lights and a few post caps are all we had to purchase. Two weekends of construction and planting at a leisurely pace produced a beautiful backdrop for our patio!

    Great idea!!! We can make different patterns with the concrete according to our choice. I have seen many beautiful concrete driveways in houses.
