Fence In Your Backyard With These Affordable DIY Wood Pallet Ideas

0 11

To create a simple fence out of pallets, like the chicken run created by YouTube DIYer GunSmoke Farmstead, simply line the pallets up along level ground and fasten them together with 3-inch decking screws. One side of the pallet typically has a 2×4 that you can attach to another pallet. If all sides are open, just add an additional 2×4 in the cavity for screwing the pallets together. Because they are quite heavy, the weight will usually keep them in place without additional posts or reinforcements — though if you live in an area of high winds or unstable ground, you may want to use a more reinforced version. Because this simpler version does not tear up the lawn, it may be a perfect solution for rental properties or short-term fencing. 

For a more anchored version of this type of fencing, you can take the same approach by attaching the side 2x4s to concrete-anchored 4×4 fence posts in the ground to grant more permanence and stability. YouTube DIYer Bama Backyard Farm alternates 4×4 fence posts and 2x4s anchored in the ground with the pallet. Since it is a chicken coop project, he also adds chicken wire along the top braced by another 2×4 to create the frame. You can also create a double layer of pallets fasted into higher anchor posts.
