Above Ground Gardens Made from Pallets

My amazing husband humored me when I asked him to grab up some discarded pallets. He was skeptical of my visions of pallet gardens. But once I showed him a few ideas on Pinterest, he ran with it and came up with his own version of a pallet garden. I must say he did a super fantastically amazing job putting these together and even went above and beyond by adding solar lights! :) Here are some "instructions", it really isn't difficult. You just cover one side of the pallet with wood to create a bottom, box in the sides with more wood to create a box and then seal the wood.
Et voila, pallet garden!

Cover the "bottom" with wood, he used one solid piece but for the next ones he said he may use planks.

 Cover each side with a plank of wood to create a "box".

 Find cheap/free labor to paint them up  for you. Just be sure not use oil based stains that could taint the soil.

We arranged them on different heights of bricks for a "fancy" look. :) 

Here they are ready to be filled with soil. 

All done and with added bonus solar lights!
