Repurposing Wood Pallets

What a great idea for Repurposing wood pallets and using them as gardening containers. Painting them to add color or leaving them in their natural wood tones creates a fun way to add vertical gardening space. To be on the safe side in case the wood pallet was treated previously with any toxic substance, use these pallets for non-edible gardening. Possibly the use of a non-toxic paint to coat the wood is more advisable for use as an edible gardening container.
A Quick How To DIY:
Use Landscape Fabric with a staple gun to secure and enclose the entire backside and sides.
Fill with potting soil and use some decorate dried moss to fill in the loose soil areas.
Lay pallet flat and add plants, a little more soil, a little more moss.  HAVE FUN!
