Making raised pallet planters for my girlfriend.all that I did was box in each flat with a 2×4, cover the end, added a bottom to hold the soil, and added 2×4 legs.

Good idea! With a bad back, hunkering in the garden is a pain (literally). This gets it up off the ground. Might make it a bit more difficult for rabbits to gnosh my greens, too.
If you will permit a suggestion: add a foot to the bottom of the 2×4s (or some kind of pad) to help distribute the weight. Fill those up with a couple bags of soil and water it and it’ll start to sink into soft ground pretty quickily.

Great idea, but I agree…watch the weight. We have lots of them here and it doesn’t take as much as you think to give in to the weight. Perhaps a few more legs

Good ideas. Right now 5 of them are filled and watered. They only hold two bags of soil. I boxed in under each slat of the pallet with a piece of 2×4. So it’s like a little planter box for each opening.

Nice idea. It is endless what a person can do with a pallet.
