Creating an herb garden from leftover materials is not only genious, but it will also help you to green your lifestyle a bit by recyclying. So how do you turn an old pallet into an herb garden?
- Find a pallet. Don’t just take the first pallet you find. You’re looking for one with all the boards in good condition, no nails sticking out, no rotting, etc.
- Gather your supplies. You are gonna need the pallet you found, 2 large bags of potting soil, 14- 6 packs of your favorite herbs or more (you can do less if you want), a small roll of landscape fabric, a staple gun, staples, and sand paper.
- Time to put on the backing. You are going to be covering the bottom, back, and sides with landscape fabric, leaving the spaces between the slats on the front and the top uncovered (you’ll be planting herbs in the uncovered spaces). Staple it all on after measuring it out.
- Planting time! Bring the pallet close to wherever it’s final spot will be and lay it down face up. You’re going to plant it while it’s laying flat on the ground. Take your two bags of Moisture Control Potting Mixl and push the soil into the pallet between the slats and smooth it out so that the soil is level. Repeat with the second bag of potting soil.
- Wait two weeks: You should leave the pallet flat on the ground for a couple of weeks (watering when needed), so that the roots can start to grow in and hold all the plants in place.
