    Comments about : Copper Cap Raised Bed, 3' x 6':

    I have four of these raised beds in my front yard and am going to add 2 more this year. Since the only sun on my property is on the street side, that is where I plant my veggies. These beds make the vegetable garden attractive and functional as part of the viewable landscape of my property. My daughter also has several in her front yard!

    Comments about : Copper Cap Raised Bed, 3' x 6':

    I bought the 6X3 foot bed and it looked and worked great for 4 years. After 4 years all the wood rotted out and the nuts and bolts were corroded beyond use.I live in an area with lots of termites and no freezing winters The copper caps still look great and should last for ever. The brackets could be reused if you can cut the hardware off. If you don't mind replacing this bed every 4 or five years or you live in a termite free area,then this could be for you otherwise you might cosider the not so pretty plastic versions.

      This past spring, we assembled two 3' x 6' Copper Cap Raised Beds. We filled them as suggested by Gardener's Supply website, and planted our normal varieties of vegetables. We also used various Gardener's Supply growing supports. Our plants were extremely healthy and prolific.

      As a result our remarkable crops, we just ordered and received a third bed, and we will probably order a fourth!

          Comments about : Copper Cap Raised Bed, 3' x 6':

          This is a beautiful raised garden. I bought two and love the high end look of the copper caps. My complaints: One set arrived with no screws or directions so I had to go buy screws at the hardware store. Frustrating for a $200+ item to not arrive with all the pieces. Also, I read reviews stating there are no pre-drilled holes and difficult to assemble without a wood drill. I was unable to get the screws into the wood and had to buy a wood drill. Assembly was a breeze with the drill. If you don't own one and want this set buy a drill! Also certain pieces of wood were discolored from the rest of the set. For the price I would expect better quality control and pre-drilled holes. I love the look of the copper caps and am overall happy with the set.

            I have three rectangular and purchased a square just for mint. My others are over ten years old and have weathered nicely even in the desert climate.

                        I bought this to replace my crumbling raised bed garden that I built out of non-treated lumber. The non-treated lumber only lasted a couple years in FL. This raised bed is a thousand times more attractive in my yard than the old one, so I am happy. It was easy to assemble by myself and I found I did not have to pre-drill holes like some of the reviews mentioned. Just screwed them in, was easy with my drill. I hope it lasts more than 2 years!
