How much time passed since you decided to regulate your backyard? Or how many lumber do you have in your garden or either in the warehouse? Don’t you want to set your old pallets down as pallet vertical succulent garden. It’s quite easy to turn your old useless items into something nice and chic in five steps!
- Landscaping Fabric
- Staple Gun
- 5 Cubic Feet of Dirt (better to get specific to succulents or to the plant that you preferred)
That’s all and let’s get started!
Step 1: Get your pallet. You can make it stained in dark colors so it makes the green of the succulents pop and sand down all jagged edges. After this stage, get your landscaping fabric and measure it out the size of the pallet that you have. It’s better to fold it over and cut the same extent of fabric a couple of more time until you get a thicker barrier. This way it is going to be safer.
Step 2: Keep going with stapling the heck out of it by stapling everywhere. The bottom is very important and the sides need to be tightly fixed.
Step 3: Put the pallet flat on the ground, opening side up. Here placing the pallet as close as possible to the place that you want to permanently place it. Keep in mind that it is going to be very heavy to move at the end.
Step 4: Here it’s time to add the dirt. We needed approximately 5 bags of dirt but it depends on the size of your pallet so you adjust it according to the size of your pallet.Pack in it and put the dirt bountifully if you don’t want to make several rounds.
Step 5: Finally, you can add succulents and let it stay stable for a few weeks in order to allow plants to root before moving it vertical. In general a week is fine. This plant does not need too much water so it’s enough to water them once a week.
Succulents are quite decorative and beautiful plants to use in your garden. If you like them I strongly recommend you to try this DIY project.
Once you made your own pallet vertical succulent garden, you will like it more and more by the time as your plants grow up… The place that you put this pallet vertical succulent garden is going to be really attractive, so enjoy it.
