Re: Planter Box from a pallet

Hi @lcantem,

 

As per this project (see Step 22) I would think you could line the box with corflute or black plastic.

 

Hope that helps.

or you can buy a water based stain these days, or just used some burnt or dark umber tint that they will sell you at your hardware store. You will only need a tiny bit.

Re: Planter Box from a pallet

Hi I'm curious about the laserlite. Does it stop chemical leeching from the wood?

Never use Pallets as garden beds or fire wood. Often they have been used 100- 1000 times to carry toxic chemicals. I know people that have been hospitalised from this...

Re: Planter boxes from a pallet

I’ve noticed that more & more people are using H3/H4 or similar varieties of treated pine timber around herb gardens and veggie patches. 

 

Is there any risk of contamination of soil and edibles from the chemical used to treat & preserve the wood?
