Additional Information

Exclusive | 2’ x 8’ Cedar Planter Box and Covers Kit — Free Insect Cover!

  • Set includes 2’ x 8’ Cedar Planter Box, frame and two covers
  • Covers let you extend the growing season and protect plants from pests
  • Grow a productive vegetable garden in a small space
  • The Cedar Planter Box is made from rot-resistant cedar with lifetime aluminum corners
  • Includes FREE Insect Cover, a $26.95 value!
  • We recommend 17, 20-quart bags of our premium Potting Mix, sold separately

Buy together and save! This set includes the 2’ x 8’ Cedar Planter Box, Protection Frame, Greenhouse Cover and Free Insect Cover.

At 29" high, the Cedar Planter Box is the perfect height for easy growing, eliminating the need to stoop, bend, kneel and reach. It’s a generous 10" deep so you can grow big plants like tomatoes and root crops like carrots. With 16 square feet of growing space, there’s plenty of room for multiple crops, yielding a generous harvest. The rot-resistant sides are held in place with our sleek and sturdy aluminum corners.

The set includes a sturdy frame and two covers. The greenhouse cover creates a protected micro climate for plants. You can start planting earlier in spring and extend the growing season later into fall for an even bigger and better harvest. The frame installs in minutes; use the Earth Staples, included, to anchor the frame to the planting mix. Then add the reinforced polyethylene greenhouse cover to shield plants from harsh weather. When the weather warms up, replace the greenhouse cover with the free micro-mesh insect cover to fend off hungry pests. Both covers have openings on both sides for easy access to plants.

I can grow all my garden vegies and salad vegies right next to the back door and extend the growing season into cooler weather. Not to mention doing it all standing up.

Good for urban plantings

By An Urban Farmer

Pros

    Cons

    • framing for guards needs to be a better fit.

    Best Uses

    • With cover: great for kale,chard,radishes.
    • Without cover: Beans, tomatoes, peppers

    Comments about : 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Planter Box, Frame and 2 Covers Kit:

    If you are tight on space and only have room for something small and want it raised - these are great. I recommend the framing. Allows plants to get established and keeps away critters like squirrels from taking it all apart.

            We're looking forward to our raised garden, free of fire ants and weeds and where we don't have to bend
            over! We had set aside half a day to put together two of the 2x8 raised boxes and had them both done in
            an hour. Perfect! We had also gotten them very quickly, ordering them on a Monday and having them arrive
            early in the day on Friday. We were very impressed with the product and the service!

                Great Product -- so sad it's not available anymore

                By Nouveau Jardinier

                from Houston, TX

                About Me Getting Started

                Pros

                • Attractive Design
                • Holding Capacity

                Cons

                • Difficult To Assemble

                Best Uses

                • Outdoor Plants

                Comments about : 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Planter Box, Frame and 2 Covers Kit:

                This is an excellent product for several reasons:

                1. The raised elevated bed really makes it easy and comfortable to plant and work the soil

                2. The height and design make it so that our sod is able to persevere under the bed and the damage to the lawn is minimal

                3. The included insect screen is particularly useful in our neck of the woods--both to keep insects out and to keep our ladybugs in

                4. The design is very attractive. We positioned it in the yard outside our kitchen/breakfast area so that we can see our crop growing

                5. While this would work for many flowers, it is perhaps even better for vegetables. The depth gives us a lot of options. This year we've planted a number of vegetables and will see what works best

                The negative:

                1. The wood was of good quality, but not quite what I had expected at this price point. That being said, we were happy overall.

                2. I am VERY sad to see this product discontinued. We ordered one to try it out. When I logged back into the site today to order more to go along the side of our property with the one we already ordered, I was very unhappy to see that the 2'x8' with the insect screen included has been discontinued. Please bring it back!!!
