Pallet wood walkway all prettied up again
This post shares how to upkeep the pallet wood pathway, and how it weathered 2 years later.
Well, after some time, this is what it started to look like…
As you can see, weeds were growing in between the wood planks. So let’s fix this!.
How to upkeep a pallet wood walkway
1. Using a gardening kneepad, I lifted one wood plank at a time, and dug out the weeds.
2. Fluff up the soil before replacing the board.
3. Slightly wiggle the board into the soil so it stays put.
4. Fill some soil in between the planks for extra stability.
Working one at a time worked like a charm! There was no need to worry about where to reposition the boards.
However since I’ve had the walkway for a number of years now, some years I remove the entire thing, weed, then replace. Both ways work fine.
And then I got on a roll.
A good flowerbed weed was also in order!
I really loved how this plant just took over and ran over the walkway.
When I originally built this pallet wood garden path, I had lined up all the boards perfectly.
This round, I staggered the edges for a different look. I love both ways!
Adding garden art
Rusty antiques were added amongst the flowers to act as garden art. Love my some rusty junk!
The pretty pallet garden path
And I’m happy to report, this pallet wood garden path is back for business!
The little pallet walkway has been a trooper. No rotting wood, and is as pretty as ever!
My kitty cat’s drinking fountain even got a deep clean. All ready for you, Teddy!
She’s currently wearing her new lion cut for summer.
And with pretty flowers all in full bloom, this little pallet wood garden walkway will be thoroughly used and enjoyed to the hilt!
So if you have designs on making one too, just do it!
