Step 1: Kill mature crabgrass with Roundup® for Lawns Crabgrass Destroyer₁

A week or two before you plan to build your new backyard bar, kill crabgrass with Roundup® for Lawns Crabgrass Destroyer, so you can start with a clean looking base. The weeds will turn white four to seven days after application, which means the product is working.

Step 2: Prep and paint wood pieces

Clean any excess dirt off the wood pallets. Then spray paint all wooden pieces (pallets and plywood) your color of choice. Let dry for 24 hours.

Step 3: Connect wood pallets

Screw the four 12-inch pieces of wood into the wood pallets to connect them and create the base of the bar.


Step 4: Attach plywood bar top

Secure the plywood to the top of the pallet base using the remaining screws. Move the bar to its desired location in your backyard, stock it with the essentials, and get ready to entertain!​​
