  • Once you choose your pallet, decide how many rows you want, take out a few slats so there is enough room to see your plants when standing up.  Make sure there is enough room for you to plant your flowers also.
  • Add a bottom slats to each row if you are using it to hold your pots or planting directly into the pallet by drilling drainage holes.  See picture below.
  • Paint your pallet any color you desire.  You can spray paint or paint with a brush but make sure to seal it before adding plastic/fabric.  I didn’t sand my pallet, I like the worn look especially considering it will be outside.
  • Add gardening plastic or landscape fabric using a staple gun to the back and line each row you are going to have dirt in.
  • Add wheels to the bottom if you want to be able to move the plant stand around during the summer.
  • Add Soil and Plant!  Just that simple.  You will want to water your plants really well after planting.
