Vertical garden Made of Scrap Pallets

We talked here on Homedit about pallets a lot actually but with DIY projects the discussion can’t be finished. The concept of vertical garden is being more and more popular because most of the people living in this world don’t have a lot of space to work with and a lot of compromise solutions appeared in the last few years. I say vertical garden mounted on balconies with fresh herbs growing a few steps away from your kitchen and 5 or 6-story above the ground. Pretty neat, huh? Well, it is and you can always make your own from simple materials very easy to find on constructions sites or recycling facilities.

This project for instance, is made out of recycled pallets that had different colors; a great feature that helped improve the design and some clean paint buckets. The only tools you need is a hammer and some nails. Depending on the place you want your new vertical garden you may also need something to attach it: wire, screws, etc.

The process is really simple and it can be done very easily in a few basic steps. Just pull the wooden planks of from the pallet and nail them to another frame creating any pattern you like from the color and shape of the individual planks. Then attach the cans also with nails, but don’t forget to first nail some holes on the bottom of the can for drainage. This is pretty much it, all you have to do next is mount it and plant your flowers.{found on abeautifulmess}.
