    Comments about Forever Raised Beds:

    I found getting the screws into this material impossible without first drilling a deep starting hole. The panels should come pre-drilled for easier and more efficient and effective assembly. This is my reason for lowering its rating.

    Comments about Forever Raised Beds:

    The other reviews were very helpful. Upon arrival, the box was so heavy I opened it on my porch and carried it piece by piece to my assembly area. Three of the four metal corner pieces were too damaged to straighten. I called and within a day or two received replacement pieces. Great service! It's awkward for one person assemble. But after all that, it sure looks great! I hope to get many years use (more than the cedar boards I had).

        heavy duty & heavy to lift- damaged extruded AL corners (shipping) were quickly replaced without hassle.
        LOOKS great I am thrilled. Assembled easier than I expected.

          Comments about Forever Raised Beds:

          Would love to give this product five stars but I just assembled and planted. I would definitely recommend getting the liner which I think should come with the bed. While the bed is very heavy..I think that is a plus for this type of application. Just make sure the delivery guy puts it down where you want it and then you can pull out one piece at a time (only 4 pieces). As many others have commented, expect the corner pieces to be bent. Not a big deal...just straighten with pliers and you are good. Make sure to use the right type of drill bit (square/Robertson?) or you will strip the screws out. Once I put the right bit in, the screws went in with no problem. I am not a handy guy and I put this together alone however, it would be twice as easy with two people. Now, I am just waiting to see how it drains and holds up. I would like to move to an all raised be garden just so I don't have to till up the ground every season.

            just put together my 3x6 bed. As expected bend corners needed pliers to make square again. pre drilling screw holes is a must. Us a 1/16 bit and you will get it together in no time. may need 2 people because it is very heavy

            I have bought these and rated them before. I still think they are too heavy, too expensive, difficult to assemble without help. But the fact is they are still great. They modularize your garden space so it always looks neat and tidy. Easiest garden to maintain! I cannot help myself. I really, really want 4 more which will bring my total up to 14. Maybe next year!

              We purchased three 3x6 Forever Raised Beds to start our vegetable garden. The kits were easy to assemble - a drill was helpful to make sure the holes are aligned. You need a couple of people to move the boxes as they are quite heavy, but the weight also keeps them im place.

              Comments about Forever Raised Beds:

              I bought 18 of these (both the 3x3 and the 3x6) to redo my entire garden. I was very pleased with the overall look. I was initially worried they might too plastic-y but they really look great and best of all they will never need replacing. They went together fairly easily as long as you pre-drill the holes. My biggest complaint, however, was that many of the corners (particularly on the 3x6 beds) arrived bent. Because I wanted to get my garden up quickly and because of the bulk of trying to return the items I just knocked them into shape with a hammer and used them anyway. They still look good and function just fine but for the expense of this product it was a bit disappointing. More protective packaging would no doubt solve this problem.

                Comments about Forever Raised Beds:

                I was apprehensive that I (middle aged woman) would not be able to put this together by myself with the reviews that have been posted. I was able to drag the boards one at a time to their final resting site and put the box together. I had to redrill the holes in a different spot on the longer boards connecting them together as they stripped out. I used two drills, one for pilot holes and one for screwing the screws down. I marked the drill bit with a sharpie so I could drill to the perfect length. I used a rubber mallet to slide the boards in the corner connectors and install the corner plugs. I would say it was a very easy project to complete. I am anxiously awaiting the proper planting time for me (zone 5).

                  I love the ease and look of these beds, but they are a struggle to put together. My husband and I tried to use the power screw diver but it stripped the Phillips screws. We hand screwed them together. The screw holes are too close to the corner to get more than a tiny rotation. We are not very handy so if you are like us allow time for frustration and applying bandages.
