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.

    Comments about Elevated Cedar Raised Beds:

    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.

        Take your time and you will be happy with this item. We used latex paint to seal the wood that would contact the soil.

          Comments about Elevated Cedar Raised Beds:

          These are so beautiful as well as functional. They make gardening a dream. No bending, stooping or kneeling, just walk up and plant and pick. Easy to assemble (a lot of screws but the parts just slide together). They also keep all the rabbits in my area away from all my veggies!! I bought one last year and two more this year.

            Comments about Elevated Cedar Raised Beds:

            I'm looking forward to growing my first vegetable garden in this elevated planter! It's the perfect height for someone with back issues. Be forewarned: Assembly is awkward and takes quite a bit of time. Fortunately I had two family members and a power drill to help me. Some of the predrilled holes didn't line up perfectly but we were able to work around this issue.
