Pallet wood walkway all prettied up again
Do you remember this post where I originally built this pallet wood walkway HERE?
PART 1: How I built the pallet wood garden walkway HERE
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!

I have been wondering what to do with a certain walkway where the dogs have grounded down the grass and the dirt makes a mess during the Florida storms…now I wish I had picked up that pile of pallets that was by the road the other day…I wonder if they are still there? This is such a great solution to what has been an ongoing dilemma in our backyard. Thanks!
It looks even prettier than when you first created it! It just amazes me how things can get out of control in a garden in just a short time! It’s been way too hot & humid here to work in my gardens to the extent they require. Watering has been about it. Luckily, it’s been so dry that the bugs and the weeds have been kept to a minimum.
I am officially Jealous~! that looks terrific. I wonder if lowes will take back the 157.00 worth of stones I had put down 3 weeks ago and just let me have some pallets? oh well, I can try this on the other side of the sunroom I guess..
May I ask please- how you got such a perfectly cut line at your lawn edge. Mine is driving me NUTZ.. any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.
Sonny, I’ll do a post on edging next. It’ll encourage me to… edge stuff! Ha! 🙂
your walk way and gardens look wonderful! I too take a section at a time Or I get over whemed.
That looks fantastic and you have given me soem great ideas for my garden. The company I work for are trying to offload a lot of pallets for free so I’m now going to claim some and get digging! Far cheaper than buying slabs from the local DIY store 🙂
That walkway looks fabulous!
I love the vine-looking plant…adds a nice touch to it.
I agree, a little at a time will get er done. I think thats often the best and only way when we’re busy working elsewhere.
Cute kitty too…and a lovely fountain.
I love pallets and the creative things you can do with them
Sigh…you are so inspiring 🙂
I know what you mean- the garden unfortunately takes a back seat sometimes. Your cleanup looks beautiful!
Donna your walkway looks so pretty! I love your garden and kitty too 🙂
This is my first opportunity to visit this website. I found some interesting things and I will apply to the development of my blog. Thanks for sharing useful information.
Love your walkway and the creeping jenny plant! And, of course, kitty is adorable!
LOVE your pallet path! Wow green grass.Ours is brown we really need rain.I would love to pallet my whole yard and not have to worry about grass.But that would be allot of pallets.Your sweet kitty does look like a lion.
Thank you for the photography trick.
Just wanted to let you know that awesome plant that you saved is a Creeping Jenny, they are super hardy and really a great ground cover. Super easy to propagate and divide too. 🙂 thanks for sharing the awesome walkway, it is really really neat!
Still in love with your pallet path. Funny because I was going to email you and ask how it held up through the winter!
My problem is my garden time digs into my blogging time. But I live for summer and being able to get into the garden to play. My blog readers are having to put up with every new bloom and plant, they are in garden overload but it is what I love to do. I enjoy Creeping Jenny’s tenaciousness and use it wherever I want some ugly spot covered, it gets the job done. Tackling the garden a little at a time is how I have to do it too, but it is a successful way to manage it.
It feels so good to get rid of weeds! It drives me nuts when I let it go for too long (which is too often) beautiful work as usual girl! You’re landscaping skills are amazing…
♥ much love
Just discovered you whilst bloghopping. Love , love, love this fabulous idea. I have to try this on the weekend in our garden. This also means I have just become your newest follower.
That walkway is probably one of the simpler things you’ve done but for some reason it’s really my favourite project of yours. It just looks sooooo great!
this is a really interesting idea. We have a dirt path that we’ve been puzzled over how we should “pave” it but we don’t want to put in concrete or pavers and, since it’s on an incline, we can’t put crushed grantit or pebbles because they would wah away with the rain. I’ll have to show him your pallet path…

That is the secret in my garden too! Blog about it and you’ll keep a beautiful garden!
I think this pallet pathway is one of the coolest!
I haven’t found a place for this yet…but I’m keeping it in my head for future reference!
beautiful pictures! Pat
