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.

      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.

            I wanted a raised bed so my 11 year old daughter and I could garden together. This bed was easy to put together, looks great in our backyard and now hold tomatoes, strawberries, carrots, etc. We are having a lot of fun watching the plants grow.

            Comments about Elevated Cedar Raised Beds:

            I love my elevated garden bed! It is so much easier on my back. I agree with what others have said regarding packaging. The brown rails were bent during shipping, however I was able to quickly fix the problem with my pliers and the wood pieces went through the channels fairly easy. My main issue was with the silver ledges that hold the cedar planks. The screws are not aligned properly. We ultimately ended up not screwing the top right corner and the bottom left corner. Hopefully it will hold. This was clearly a machining/manufacturing mess up. Overall, I am pleased with the results and have recommended this product to my friends.
