Never garden

By Thea

from Michigan

Comments about : Forever Raised Bed, 3' x 3':

My forever gardens (I have 2) never were aasembled. Too heavy and too difficult. The brackets connecting the boards are flimsy and boards see saw when moved. I bought brackets to reinforce them at ends and screws. I didn't get all of them screwed in and the ones I didn't get in are warped. Some boards at edges have cracks. Any drill hole will allow water to reach inner core which will cause it to decompose. Many end brackets arrived bent. It is my Never garden because it is NEVER going to be put together. I broke my arm and shoulder and have no volunteers to assemble it and with warping and splits in boards, I doubt results would be worth effort. I would advise anyone who do purchase this raised garden to stick with 3 x 3 size. The long boards are heavy and they warped. Want to say that they were not assembled because husband got cancer and died.

    This is great for needing some plants/flowers in spaces where one would not like to dig into the ground (front of house). Many neighbors are beginning to think the same.

        Comments about : Forever Raised Bed, 3' x 3':

        Composite planks often 1/16 to 1/8 inch thicker than the metal brackets. Had to use a sledge hammer to force them in. The composite material very difficult to work with, pre-drilling holes for screws is necessary. Screw heads are very soft and strip easily. Had to replace several, as spares are not supplied.

        I love that these are heavy and sturdy but may be cumbersome for some gardeners. They are attractive and I hope they last as long as they say they will.

          We are very very pleased with the Final product. Beds look is very nice, lovely addition to the yard. But lots of work to assemble. Would recommend to friend with caution about needling help to assemble and electric screws.

            I'm planning on using this for vegetable planting, it seems to be sturdy and weather resistant but it is fall and I just got it placed where I want it and have not utilized it to full capacity as yet. Am looking forward to the spring and its first use

                  Assembly was ok. Definitely easier with 2 people. Didn't pre-drill holes but should use a variable speed drill with a robertson square bit. Much, much better than a phillips head.
