    We've been working on a fence out of free wood pallets, trying in vain to keep the new pup out of the woods. So far it's been working great, hardly cost anything, and I'll be able to plant things in the top of the pallets!

    Here here...nice way to re-purpose something what just usually lies around an industrial estate or used for the fireplace.

    Mark did a great vid or two on planting out pallets with fruit and veg. Worth a watch.

    Best wishes

    Will you use the pallet-built fence as a grow bed to plant something or it will only serve as a fence? Not quite sure from reading the descriptions.

    Love this. We have black bears that wonder around the woods behind our house. I bet this could help deter them. ( unless they are REALLY hungry lol)

    I plan on planting pollinator friendly/attracting flowers and plants in the tops of the pallets as the fence runs close to my garden. I also hear droning or humming coming from the woods at times so I'm wondering if there isn't a bee colony back there already.
