The pictures show before (sort of) and after. The pallets are 2 high and joined together by 2x4s as splines. They are set on pavers and the buttresses keep them upright. They are also anchored with wires tightened by turnbuckles. We drove metal posts about 4' into the ground. The fence is unbelievably study and isn't going anywhere in our strong winds. Plus it's pretty! Since these pictures were taken, we've started collecting glass doors and windows from the dump and are turning the areas between the buttresses into mini greenhouses.

Here is another picture of the fence.
The back is covered with black landscape fabric to hide the gaps. It also helps block the wind.
I made a temporary, no cost (except for the ties that I already had on hand) pallet fence to protect a garden area. I don't know how to upload photos here, but you can see the pictures on my blog. Go to the blog ..... www.kaufarmer.blogspot.com Then scroll down the labels on the right to "fence". Click on that one.
It's never too late to start! I retired to homestead on the slopes of Mauna Loa, an active volcano. I relate snippets of my endeavor on my blog : www.kaufarmer.blogspot.com
