    There was someone who posted on here some time ago who made a garden shed with pallets. I use them for storing big bales of hay on for my horses. My son has used them to make his compost heap.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

     Part old arbour and some pallets. I didn't make it OH did.

  • Made my compost bins out of pallets.

    Also made a garden bench out of a 9 board pallet. Take off the battom boards, leave on the big blocks of wood. Cut into 3 3 board sections and ressemble with the wooden block all meeting under the seat. Simple.

  • Thanks some great ideas, archiepem like the decking, KEF what a great potting bench may have a try of that, No expert do you have pics and Busy-Lizzie like the cold frame on that website

  • Here is a picture of my pallets and I have 3 more now


    Think it will be a bench a cold frame and maybe a garden table for seed sowing.

    Lets just see if my DIY skills are up to making them all
