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..

            Instructions were not clear. It's definitely a two person job and you need a drill

              Received this 2x4 elevated cedar planter box April 25, 2017. Also bought both covers. Assembled it three days ago. Five stars for excellent concept--perfect for my space and configuration of my back yard. Hope to grow a variety of vegetables.

              HOWEVER, it gets ONE STAR for execution. Holes of the Flat Supports result in the Flat Supports hanging down about 1/4" below the bottom of the side panels, creating sharp edges for anyone who might reach under there. Really careless, dumb construction. Holes of the Platform Supports are mis-aligned such that you can't screw the short ones to the long ones, in the corners. if I had not had additional tools and knowledge of how to use them, I would have been extremely angry. Assembly should take 30 minutes. Thanks to pre-drilled holes being mis-aligned, and figuring out what to do about that, and having to drill more, and then re-drill and fit the holes on the Platform Supports, it took a couple hours. Luckily, I had the drill and correct bits. Don't buy this if you don't have a power drill, punch, and bits. Or a good set of pliers to try to get the mucked up screws backed out to try again. There were at least a dozen extra cheap-soft-Chinese-metal screws left over.

              The Cedar Floor Planks, by the way, are "approximately" the correct length. Were sawn to various lengths.

              Very poor quality process control and careless build by the people who are making this.

              I would recommend this product to anyone who has, and is handy with, the extra tools that will be required.

                Ordered two of the 2 x 4 size raised beds instead of one 2 x 8 for versatility. They are good quality and no problems putting them together. The only thing they are missing are wheels, even as an additional option. We tried to find suitable wheels to install ourselves but could not find any. Hoping the beds will last for years. Only just planted in them for the first season.

                    Took over two weeks to get the missing parts and cracked panel replaced. Not acceptable. Bad for Gardener's Supply reputation.
