Build A Raised Bed For Free Out of An Old Pallet. Do you have any old pallets laying around, or know someone who does? Most of the time people just throw them into the scrap heap.
Ask around an you;ll be amazed how many there are and the amount that get thrown away.
Take them home, cut them up and use them as wonderful rustic looking raised beds or grow boxes.
One thing to watch out for.
More companies are starting to build one-time-use pallets or using heat treatment rather than Methyl Bromide fumigation.
Pallets now require an IPPC logo which certifies that the pallet was heat-treated or fumigated with Methyl Bromide. If you don't see an IPPC logo, then don't use it.
Watch out for is MB. It means it was treated with Methyl Bromide.
I'm not a pallet expert, so if you're not sure don't use it.
Just be safer than sorry.
