Additional Information

Exclusive | Cedar Planter Box is Easy to Plant, Tend and Harvest

At 29" high, this attractive cedar planter 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 8 square feet of growing space, there's plenty of room for multiple crops, yielding a generous harvest. Set up one or more of these rectangular beds around the edge of your patio to create a convenient kitchen garden, or fill them with flowers for a stunning display. 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. Any excess water drains through the floor slats..

    Comments about : 2' x 4' Elevated Cedar Planter Box:

    We finally got this *(L^!@ thing together. The instructions quite frankly, to use the vernacular, suck. It took a call into customer service where they kept saying "use a screw gun." For those of you in the Deep South, that means a power drill or impact driver. We drilled the metal holes out and went to the hardware store and used self-drilling screws that made everything much easier than the cheap, piece of trash (I did want to use something else) screws that kept stripping out, which is why there are so many given to you, I'm sure.

    Not sure I'd recommend it yet. We'll see. Definitely need better instructions and for the love of God, could you put some better quality screws in!

      As I'm getting older, it's so great to have these pre-made structures that we can easily assemble and I can be working in my garden standing up! I'm very excited.

        This is a good quality and price on a raised bed for the novice or even beginner gardener. It provides ample space to plant multiple plants and is a good height. It was a bit difficult for one person to put together and the instructions were a bit unclear,but with a little patients it went together fine. Before filling with soil it was light enough to move to any location.

          I already have the 2 X 8' one and I really adore it! I found it very understandable to put together and then when prepared...SO EASY to just walk out there where I have it positioned in sun to plant/tidy up/treat/admire, etc. I now want this 2 x 4' one to position off one side for my fall onion/shallot/garlic bulbs; saving for the purchase! Do get one; 'tis great product!

          Comments about : 2' x 4' Elevated Cedar Planter Box:

          A couple years ago I bought a bigger planter box for my backyard and loved it! We recently moved into a town home, and it was too big to fit. So I bought this one, and just like the other it is perfect! Very easy to care for the plants, and since it's raised off the ground I don't have to worry about as many critters getting into my vegetable garden.

          I use these planters for a deck garden of vegetables. Perfect for older folks who can't kneel and bend well.

            Got this late in the summer so could only plant fall vegtables. My vegtables are growing like crazy. My mother bought one of these locally for the same price this year and it is already falling apart. This one is very sturdy. When it arrived it did have one bent leg in the box. I called and Gardener Supply sent a new leg right away no questions asked. Best service ever!

              Comments about : 2' x 4' Elevated Cedar Planter Box:

              We bought this because we didn't have the space to have a traditional in-ground vegetable/herb garden. It was easy to assemble, doesn't take up much space and we were able to plant the following: 4 cucumber plants, 4 pepper plants, 2 jalapeno plants, a bunch of green onions, 2 cilantro plants and 2 basil plants. Everything thrived and were wonderful producers with regular fertilizing. Loved this so much we bought a second one for next year! We can't wait to have double the capacity and still not take up much space at all.
