Instructions for building your own vertical garden from pallets

Both Euro pallets (€29.99) and other wooden pallets are suitable as pallets. It can be used or new, it is important that it is not rotten so that it can withstand the weight of the soil and plants.

Material and tool list

  • palette
  • pond liner
  • Earth
  • staple gun
  • scissors
  • possibly paint or glaze to protect the wood
  • Brush for painting

1. Paint pallet

You can also use the palette untreated, but then it will change color over time and may also become damp and ultimately rotten. To prevent this, you can paint your palette. If you want to keep the naturalness, simply use a colorless glaze or paint your palette brightly.

2. Staple the pond liner to the pallet

Double up the pond liner to withstand the load.

Lay the pallet on the pond liner with the slats facing up and fold it up to the top slats. Now staple the pond liner all the way around except for one side. The side that stays open will end up facing up, so it should be one of the horizontal ends.

Now turn the pallet over and staple the pond liner several times on the back in all possible places. Remember that the pond liner has to hold a lot of weight, so feel free to staple a lot.

3. Drainage

Poke a few holes in the lower end of the foil so that excess water can drain off. Place a layer of rocks or gravel on the bottom of your pallet.

4. Fill in soil

Now turn your pallet over again and fill it halfway with soil. Then place them in the desired location and fill in the rest of the soil.

5. Set plants

Now put the plants inside. The denser you plant, the more likely it is to create a green wall effect. However, if you want to plant strawberries, lettuce, herbs or other vegetables or fruit, you should leave enough space between the individual plants so that they can develop and bear fruit.
