One Person’s Trash is Another Person’s Treasure!
One item we have in abundance here at Kane Landscapes is pallets. A lot of our materials are delivered on pallets (sod, pavers, ect.) and we often cannot return or recycle them to our vendors. Inevitably, we end up trying to find community groups or clients who want to re-use the pallets for their own needs.
A fun way we have found that people re-use pallets is by turning them into a decorative planter box. You only need a few simple materials to do this; a pallet, landscape fabric, staple gun and staples, potting soil, and flowers/herbs. Here is a link to a great tutorial for completing this project! http://lifeonthebalcony.com/how-to-turn-a-pallet-into-a-garden/#
Please let us know if you are interested in picking up a pallet to make a container garden of your own!
