How to Make Garden Edging From Pallet Wood

I was pretty tickled with the way this rustic garden edging turned out.  I was even more tickled that I made it from pallet wood and soda bottles!


I made this garden edging as part of a mailbox makeover for my parents 44th wedding anniversary. Be sure to check out the before and after if you missed it. I used wide strips of 2-litter soda bottles to connect 4-plank sections of pallet fencing.  Nine inch lengths of metal dowels were inserted into two planks of each section and hammered into the ground.  It really was as easy as that, you can check out my YouTube channel to see the full tutorial.

Wondering if you have the tools to complete the job?  Here are some that I think would be helpful.

  8. Cute as anything. I love it. My daughter has a really difficult time getting the pallets apart. I wonder if there are tricks to getting them apart. Best wishes, Linda

    1. Hey, Linda. It's a lot of brute force to remove the planks if you don't have a sawzall...Reciprocating saw. With the right blade it'll cut right through the nails leaving the nail heads in the plank. If she doesn't need the full length of the piece she can simply take a circular saw and cut right along support pieces. This will leave her with plank pieces that are slightly less than 1/2 the original length...perfect for this project!
