Using pallets for fencing

Updated: Apr 1, 2023

Pallets are often used for fencing because they are a cost-effective and readily available material that can be repurposed for a variety of DIY projects. Here are some reasons why pallets can make a good choice for fencing:

  1. Low Cost: Pallets are often available for free or at a very low cost, which makes them an economical option for those on a budget.

  2. Reusable: Pallets can be repurposed for a variety of DIY projects, including fencing. This makes them a sustainable choice, as they can be reused rather than being discarded as waste.

  3. Customisable: Pallets can be easily customised to fit any size or style of fence. They can be cut, sanded, and painted to match the aesthetic of your home and garden.

  4. Durable: Pallets are typically made from strong and durable materials, such as hardwood or treated lumber. This makes them suitable for outdoor use and able to withstand the elements over time.

  5. Easy to Install: Pallets can be installed quickly and easily, as they can be nailed or screwed together to create a sturdy fence.

Overall, using pallets for fencing can be a cost-effective, sustainable, and customisable option for those looking to create a functional and attractive fence for their property. However, it is important to note that not all pallets are suitable for outdoor use, as some may be treated with chemicals or contain nails or other hazards. It is important to inspect pallets carefully and choose those that are safe and appropriate for your project.

Here's a fence I made a few year back, from old pallet wood, then sealed and stained with creosote.
