OK I admit I totally love this idea. What a cool way to make a hanging planter. Anyone else want to try this?
That’s awesome! It’s not trashy at all! (Except maybe in the literal sense of the word.)
Well, the pallet could have a coat of painting to prevent mold and stuff, but it’s still an awesome idea.
I can say I’m guilt of that. I just turned mine so it was flat, filled it in and made an herb garden. We have to do raised beds where I live and I didn’t want to dig out another garden.
Nice if you like a new source of BUGS and of course this will last only a year or so before it rots and is a real pain in the ass to dispose of. Unless you are going to burn it right there, which brings up a whole nother set of issues. One other point I hope the back side has a sheet of something on it and it’s not set bare to the wall surface as it will permanently stain the stucco and probably blister the paint. Never mind they’re just renters so fuck it.
Wow, Ron! Did you get out on bed on the wrong side this morning? I also think this is a great idea, especially if you live in the city, where backyard space is at a premium. Very nice, and a good way to recycle. (And Ron, most places have garbage pickup so you don’t need to worry about disposal. Yeesh, what a grouch.)
Lady Ann I’ll tell you what happens is it gets left outside till it rots and then the tenants moves out and it’s a real pain in the ass to get to the trash bin because it’s falling apart in your hands as you are trying to move it. If you want to create meaningful growing space use different sizes of plastic buckets and pails, they can be stacked in creative ways, such as in a sloping manner with larger buckets on the bottom of the stack. They will last longer, not encourage bugs and they can be disposed of much cleaner and easier. BOTTOM LINE WOOD SUCKS MOST OF THE TIME !!!
I tried this, but it didn’t work out as planned. Guess I really needed some thin plywood instead of landscaping cloth on the back/bottom of the pallet. Then landscape cloth or something on the top to hold the dirt in place until everything sprouts.
