Yesterday I finally got around to working on our balcony. It has been sitting patiently for about a month now, neglected, and I must say I am so happy with what we have accomplished so far!
I have been wanting to create a small garden that we could clip herbs from, as we don't have a backyard, this small pallet garden was the best solution. We do have a balcony though, and a garden pallet is the perfect size.
After finding a tutorial on The Chew, I set out to find a pallet at Home Depot(if you ask they will most likely have them on hand, and give you for free), a tarp, and something to give it some height (I was lucky enough to find these on the side of the road in my neighbourhood).
It is fairly simple, all you need is a staple gun to secure the tarp to the pallet, some earth and a selection of flowers & herbs.
Continued after the jump...
Here is a screenshot I took a while back with instructions, & supply lis, along with photos of my progress.
We stuck to mostly herbs, added a few flowers for variety
Found at Home Depot- I had to remove one of the planks on the other side to create even spaces
Turn over to secure
Make sure to staple all of the boards across the bottom, to hold in place
Begin to spread earth throughout the sections
Always Stay Graceful,
