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!

Gardening is so rewarding but so much work! Your walkway area is so inviting…makes me want to take a walk along it to see the rest of the garden!
pretty kitty 🙂 funny haircut notwithstanding. Love the way your board path resembles a footbridge. I guess it is sort of a bridge between two areas of the yard. Looks so serene!
That pallet walkway looks amazing…what a great and affordable idea. I’m all inspired now to get to work on something!
your garden and walkway look beautiful. the cat photo is great!
You pallet walkway is how I found your blog in the first place. I just love it.
I’m obsessive about gardening and can’t imagine life without it. In fact, that’s where I’m headed right now. With camera in tow for blog posts of course. :o)
Looking good. Love it all. Thanks for sharing. Here in Arizona it is HOT, hot, HOT….everything has mostly dried up. Stay cool.
Love it! Do you walk on it often or is it mainly for looks?
We walk on it constantly! It’s the best way from the driveway to the front yard.
So, so beautiful! That’s the thing with gardening … by the time I make it around to clean all of the beds I have to start again at the beginning. 🙂 Oh, and I wouldn’t have noticed your cats haircut with the nickname!! Cute.
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Great idea with the pallets, too. Thanks for sharing.
Love! Love! Love! Thanks for reposting this. Plan to make something like this between our yard and our neighbors. It will be so inviting!
Your garden looks pretty darned gorgeous to me. Alot more than ours. We have a drought here (western CO) so not supposed to water very much at all.We use irrigation water here (have to buy shares) but since nobody that owned our place before had had any installed we don’t have any but our neighbor is letting us use his (what an angel)
Loving how your pallet walk way was installed with alternating boards laid out. Gives it a natural look, rather than contrived. The flowers are so random and pretty. I’ll have to enjoy yours as it’s very hard to grow anything but blasted weeds in our soil, we have way too much alcali here in our soil. Drat and darn. Enjoy your gorgeous garden.
Soooooo Pretty! Love It! You do such good work! Thanks for sharing.
That is one of the prettiest, yet simplest ideas I’ve seen. Now I know what to do if someone’s giving away some wood like that!
Love,the yard,and love the natural look…me I am a rock girl…I have rock gardens all the way around. Your photo’s are marv,….and the horse blanket me too…I use to dream of growing up and having a horse ranch….Blog on
Lovely, many are not spending as much time blogging with all there is to do at home and in the yard. Me too….haven’t really gotten a hold on the yard, as we had such a late Spring.
Your yard looks beautiful and I love the walkway!
Weeding is instant gratification ~ love standing up and being able to see what you have just done! Cooper gets a lion cut every summer ~ he minds the heat and matts like crazy too. Love your new and improved walkway.
Love the pallet walkway. I like the casualness of it and who doesn’t love repurposed wood. Thanks for sharing.
What a stunning and lovely walkway! It may look simple how you all did it, but I wouldn’t know where to start. I’m glad hubby keeps up with our little back yard. 😉 But I love how you incorporate old items (or junk as you call it…lol) into the garden. Would love to see more of your gorgeous yard!!
All the best, Inge x
I love this project. Pallets are great and I love reusing them. I’ll have to do this one for sure.
Donna – You are amazing! Those steps look awesome!!!!
Enjoy your weekend.
