Method

First, make sure the pallet you have is solid and in good condition.

You can always add a few boards from the second pallet to solidify the structure of the first one.

The top, center, and bottom of the pallet where there are 2 planks facing each other will serve as flower boxes.

You must therefore create a base by nailing a plank under each of these parts.

Then, staple the fabric (or ground cover) into the bins to prevent the soil from falling into the cracks.

If you are in an apartment and you cannot make a permanent installation, I suggest you use the old technique of square bracing to fix the pallet to the patio railing with rope.
