Pallet Planters have become very popular over the last few years as the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ movement has really picked up momentum.  Using pallets that would otherwise be discarded and left to landfill is a great way to create garden space for your flowers and vegetables.  

They also have a beautiful rustic look.  many of these planters can go where a regular cement floored patio or balcony would be.  Here are some DIY projects and tutorials to get your creative ideas flowing.
