Here is the pallet fence I am putting up to keep my little dog from wandering off. I used steel posts between the pallets and then that great orange binder twine to tie the pallets to the steel fence posts. It wasn't even that much work because I was able to borrow a fence post pounder.

My dear uncle brought the pallets to me for stacking my winter wood on but I had some left over for this project. I hope he can bring me more!

the fence looks great. the orange twine is most likely polypropylene and will deteriorate in a realatively short time from exposure to UV light.

I'll have to admit it looks better than I first envisioned it might.

That orange twine lasts forever Wes! I have used it on many projects around my home. I macramaed an entire trellis which has been standing for 4 years now with no sign of deterioration whatsoever.
