Woodpellets.com Quality Manager Joy explains how she used wood pallets from a recent delivery to keep her family’s garden organized:
We start our garden every year by taking compost from our compost pit. The compost is made of ash from our stove and food waste. We also sprinkle in wet damaged fuel. We then mix the compost with soil and roto-till it into the garden.
The next step was to take our pallets and cut off the bottom layer. We place the pallets into the newly mixed soil. Under the pallets is a plastic barrier, the soil is added on top and then we push the pallets in.
The next step is to take our pre grown plantlings and place them spaced apart.
Using this combination of pallets and the barrier plastic (made from Woodpellets.com delivery shrouds) our peppers, scallions, peas and green beans won’t get strangled with weeds!
