Additional Information

Exclusive | Easy-to-Tend Raised Garden is Handsome and Versatile

Bring your garden up to a whole new level! Our 2' x 8' elevated raised bed is easy to plant, tend and harvest without kneeling or bending. Plus, it offers creative landscaping opportunities. Set up one or more of these rectangular elevated beds around the edge of your patio to add privacy, or arrange several along a perimeter to create a garden "room". Like our other cedar raised beds, the sides are held in place with our sleek and sturdy aluminum corners. There's a false floor made of cedar slats, set 10" down from the top so there's plenty of root space for vegetables and flowers. Excess water drains through slats; vents in the sides allow air to circulate and excess moisture to evaporate.

    These raised garden beds are beautiful. They are very strong and go together easily. I love the height and the look of them. I'm sure I'll have many years of use out of them.

      Comments about Elevated Cedar Raised Beds:

      This is a great-looking raised bed. We've just assembled it, and haven't yet used it, but it seems sturdy, has a good drainage system, and since it's cedar will likely weather well. It comes partially assembled, which is great. The remaining assembly was easy with one exception. The cedar sides and end pieces are held together by a long piece of steel, with channels the width of the cedar planks. These steel pieces were dented (possibly during shipping). We had to use a hammer to pry open the channels before we could tap in the cedar pieces.

        Comments about Elevated Cedar Raised Beds:

        I used to have an enormous vegetable garden in addition to a number of flower beds. With age I have found it very difficult to deal with hot, muggy weather and had to let the work involved with growing vegetables go. I miss the organic vegetables however and finally decided to give this raised bed a try. It is a recent acquisition so I am not really able to judge it. It is certainly easy to access. Having acquired it so late in the season I only have a few pepper and tomato plants but I did put in three short rows of green beans. Everything is growing beautifully and so far I am extremely pleased.

            While I haven't planted this bed yet it looks like it will serve my purpose very well. It looks nice and part of it's purpose is to block a view of a neighbor's untended (weedy) property.

                We put these along the railings on our terrace, and planted wildflowers in them. Perfect way to garden on the deck without buying tons of pots.

                The assembly is mostly easy, but the screws in the end pieces make things a bit frustrating. The design in this area could be improved.

                I love the boxes; they are perfect for our roof deck. We have four; some came together easily, others required some work, as the metal corners of the frame were bent upon arrival and had to be fixed. Overall, I recommend these.

                Comments about Elevated Cedar Raised Beds:

                I have purchased 3 of these and each one arrived with bent tracks for the end boards. We had to bend them out with pliers. It is very difficult to square the ends. The end board support should be fixed in place at the factory so that it still easier to square up.
                That being said, I bought a 4 th. They are sturdy and the perfect height for pain free gardening. They look cool and it's a joy to get out there every morning and tend to my gardens.
