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..

            Used pots for vegetables and flowers
            Pots are not pleasing to look at
            I bought 3
            Treated them with the oil to preserve and add gloss to the wood

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

              I just purchased my third one of these planters.
              I bought my first one two years ago, loved it and bought another last year. Liked them both so much I bought this third one.
              I am an older gardener, and crawling around on my hands and knees in a vegetable garden, planting and weeding, isn't something I can easily do now. And getting up from wayyyy down there gets harder every year. :)
              These planters are a great height. They allow me to have my vegetables at a height that is comfortable for me to plant, tend and harvest. While I have a huge space behind my cross fence where I could (and in the past did) have a large garden, these make it so much more accessible and comfortable to garden in.
              I use them for all kinds of vegetables and herbs. Currently I have two kinds of lettuce, spinach, onions, garlic, sage, and two pepper plants (that over-wintered for the second year in my warm central valley California climate). I just planted carrots and tomatoes in the newest one.

              I absolutely love these planters, and the recently purchased one has one piece sides and ends instead of the two pieces the other planters have, and that made assembly faster and I like the look of the single board better than the two.

              Great planters!

                  I purchased 2 of these - one for my step-daughter and one for myself. They look very nice on the deck and will make a great place for our vegetable garden. We're hoping the bunnies and my chocolate lab can't reach the plants this year!

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

                    This planter looks great on the patio. We put it close to the kitchen so I can go out and snip herbs and get some other veggies for a salad. Will probably buy another next season.

                      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.
