DIY Wood Pallet Strawberry Planter

Here’s another great wood pallet project you can try at home. It is a wood pallet strawberry planter that is made from one pallet only. Unlike other versions of this planter which have the strawberries growing vertically, this one actually has feet and if built correctly it should be stable when left to stand on the ground. Once the planter is constructed you can then go ahead and add your soil, compost and of course the strawberries.  For this project, you will need to be able to use simple tools like a hand saw and an electric drill/hammer.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • A wood pallet
  • A hand-saw or jigsaw
  • Electric drill or hammer
  • Two sizes of screws and nails – approx. lengths  (1-1/2″) and (3″)
  • Gardening fabric
  • Scrap wire
  • Compost
  • Soil
  • Strawberry Plants
  • Straw


  • Heavy duty chisel/wedge and iron mallet
  • Non-toxic paint and paintbrush

Your pallet selection is very important, so make sure you are using a heat treated pallet that has a main surface made up of six or 9 planks. The number of planks makes it easy for you to cut the pallet into the three pieces that are needed for the planter. Do not throw away anything that you cut or remove from the pallet, you will need the planks and the blocks for the sides and the legs. Strawberries will produce more fruit if they are not planted too close to each other, the recommended spacing is about 14″ apart. Tanya plants hers in layers starting from the bottom and explains the whole process in detail too.
