I've built a fence out of pallets.

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.

Constructing the fence - note the splines--ready to join the two pallets together. Also look at the lovely alley.

Fence completed with snow. The covered area is for firewood for the firepit.

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.

Your fence turned out nice.

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.
