    Those ryobi nail gun nails and exterior screws werent free then you said at the end you use nails out of the pallets. We saw you building it, you didnt use old nails. Good raised beds but dont make stuff up.

    *As an amateur with woodworker, I typically feel **woodplans.works** overpowered with the entire arrangement. Be that as it may, this arrangements drove me through with much clarity and effortlessness. I now work like a genius. That is great!*

    Just go to the Woodglut website if you want to do it yourself.

    DIY Daddy please can you make some more pallet videos?

    If you want to know how to do it yourself, just look for Woodprix.

    Speaking of pallets. I live in the city (Chicago) and am considering ways of starting an urban farm. There are SO MANY developers that are just sitting on vacant land for future sale or developments. My idea was to have a mobile urban farm and provide a sort of custodial service to the developers, grow produce at a profit for my effort, and be able to pick up and relocate if/when the land changed hands. My idea (so as to NOT reinvent the wheel) was to make raised beds out of pallets. This way, with just a pallet-jack, I can rearrange them on the property when needed; or load them on to a truck for relocation. I want them to be wheel chair height so I can employee disabled people. I imagine I can make one bed out of every 3 or four pallets. I’d use one for the base, take wood from the others to make the sides, and use the supports from those to reinforce the main base.

    Since pallets are typically 48" I imagine the first 30" can be the ‘in-ground’ production bed, the back of the pallet-bed can be built up to provide a trellis (using even more pallet wood or something lighter) for veining crops; and herbs can possibly be planted in whatever leftover space is in between.

    Only thing is, I don’t know if I should use a giant grow bag inside, or if the sides can be built up well enough to support the inside pressure of the dirt and water. I’ve calculated that 7 of these in a row would be just over the length of a standard 25 foot bed.

    Perhaps you could give it a try? At the very least you’ll get some content out of it.

    There is an issue with using pallets, and that is the various pesticides that pallets are sprayed with depending on the countries it has traveled to. I would never use them for a garden bed that you are growing eatables in. These pallets travel all over the world and each country uses different sprays so as not to transport bugs that can be invasive. It’s a nice idea, and I am big on recycling and repurposing. The wood is also much too thin and will rot away in one-two seasons. I’ve been growing everything on my land for 22 years and have never used any kind of none organic chemical on plants, lawns, trees, and garden beds

    Hi, Moose scrapper, you’re recycled in gardening 🙂

  12. Christopher Traugh on November 13, 2021 at 11:49 am

    I like the way they came out. Once the dirt is in there the sides aren’t going anywhere.

  13. This Guy on November 13, 2021 at 11:54 am

    Exactly the thing I have been looking to try! Thanks for reading my mind lol

  14. Steve Tait on November 13, 2021 at 11:58 am

    Nice simple design. I wonder if you stapled plastic on the inside it would last longer? I suspect it would.

  15. f1346m on November 13, 2021 at 11:59 am

    About how long would one of this garden bed last under normal gardening use?

  16. CORNISH BACK GARDENER NEW ALLOTMENT on November 13, 2021 at 12:05 pm

    Really good video

  17. Dave Cartwright on November 13, 2021 at 12:05 pm

    Any new videos in the works?

  18. francis saxor on November 13, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    Do I have to paint the wood ?

  19. V. on November 13, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    Very nice! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Tiffany Nicole on November 13, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Looks better than what I’ve seen in the stores. I think I’m going to give it a try. Very informative. Thank you

  21. Samantha Erwin on November 13, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    I really appreciate how in depth you went with some of these things! Thank you

  22. Phil Courterelle on November 13, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    To prevent curling, position the 20in cut pallet pieces with the end grain alternating grain direction (I call it happy face, sad face as the grain looks like a smile or frown ) The board will want to curl in same direction as the grain so use the grain to your advantage.

    its a nice raised bed and I will look into making it. BUT longevity is the key. Need to seal it with something for rot. One video I saw said to burn the wood with fir. Termites don’t like burnt wood

  24. James Allen on November 13, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    Thank you.Very easy and something a relative beginner can do. Appreciate the video.

  25. Franks DIY on November 13, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    Nice job

  26. Bigmaude31 on November 13, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    So, let me see if I understand. You fill your raised beds first with hay bales and then add your soil mix over the top? If this is correct, how many bales for the 8’ bed do you use? Do you have any sinking during the growing season from the straw breaking down?

  27. Lopez Familia 6 on November 13, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    Awesome video!!

  28. Jay Bee on November 13, 2021 at 12:24 pm

  29. DKUJ_ PALLETS & GARDENING on November 13, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    This is beautiful. I look to do this for a friend of mine!

  30. Get Er Done Granny on November 13, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    You got me at the pallet breaker video! Lol. Thanks for sharing this one too.

  31. chevy6299 on November 13, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    How long does a bail of hay last in a raised bed?
