When you are apartment gardening in a small space, you are forced to be creative due to your space constrictions. Most traditional pots and containers might not work, so you become reliant on reusing objects to better fit your space.

Shipping pallets are one such object that can likely fit your space. You can get them in the back of grocery stores or from your local farmers market. Here are two projects using a shipping pallet in your garden.

Shipping Pallet Herb Garden

This is a project that I’ve done my Los Angeles balcony and costs close to nothing. In this project, I used the shipping pallet and some plastic soda bottles that I got from the recycling bin of my apartment building.

The soda bottles were attached to the pallet in rows and columns of three. This way all you have to do is water the top bottle and the water filters through to the others.
