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

  • Grow vegetables and flowers without kneeling or bending
  • Add 8 square feet of growing space on your porch, patio or deck
  • Made from naturally rot-resistant cedar with rustproof aluminum corners
  • VIDEO: Tour our Vermont factory

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. Excess water drains through slats; vents in the sides allow air to circulate and excess moisture to evaporate.

  • Assembly required
  • Cedar with aluminum corners and imported fabric liner
  • 48" L x 24" W x 29" H
  • Holds approx. 6 cubic feet or 165 quarts of container mix

      Growing made easy

      By Sharon Younkin

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Attractive
      • Easy to use
      • Extends Growing Area
      • No Bending

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Small Flower Garden
        • Small Vegetable Garden

        This is an outstanding product. We liked the first one so much we bought another for a different part of the yard. We stained it, although that's not necessary. It's easy to fill, plant and harvest, no bending. I highly recommend it.

        Safe from critters, easy on me.

        By Wannabe Eve

        from Dakota Dunes, SD

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Butterflies Found It Fine
        • Hummingbirds love it
        • No Critters
        • No Deer
        • No Squirrels

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • On a deck
          • Where Soil Is Too Sandy
          • With Restrictive Ccrs

          I put two of these on the sunniest part of my deck. The seeds have not grown well, but I have never had any luck with seeds. The pre-sprouted plants are doing spectacularly well however. I love being able to wander out on the deck and do the dead-heading, watering, and general maintenance without long-handled tools and without getting down on my knees. Very convenient for a difficult climate and native soil and is wonderfully protected for a hard to grow area.

          Pros

          • Attractive
          • No Bending To Weed
          • Well-made

          Cons

          • A Few Splinters

          Best Uses

          • Herbs
          • Vegetables

          I am, so far, very pleased with the raised beds. As you can see from my photo, I bought several and set them up in U formations. My landscapers suggested putting stones or bricks under the legs so that they wouldn't dig into the earth, and we ended up making 8'x8' stone pads for each one, which keeps the weeds down and relieves us of the necessity of mowing underneath. It also means there's a dry, hard surface to stand on.

          The cedar is weathering, which is fine with me; I'd rather have them turn grey than stay yellow. I noticed that gardeners.com sells a preservative that would halt that process.

          The boxes are not as deep as they look from the outside; the planting depth is 10". That may not sound like enough, but it is plenty. The boxes take a lot of dirt as it is, and more would be excessive. The boxes come with garden fabric with which you line the boxes to keep the dirt from washing out. Don't skip that step -- I can see that it would be necessary. My soil is rather clayey, so the drip hoses are an excellent choice -- and after 20 minutes, the water starts dripping out the bottom, so I water briefly and frequently.

          Not only would I recommend this to a friend, but I bought two as gifts. I hope they hold up over the years.

          Best Uses

            I was a bit nervous when I read other reviews of boards not fitting and screws being too big, but these issues must have been resolved because I was able to assemble this box by myself with just an electric screw gun in about a half hour. No problems and it looks great!

              Best Uses

                I only ordered one so I could try it out and see if I liked it. I'm using my first raised garden to plant tomatoes and peppers. Next year, I'll definitely order at least one more. I love the fact that there is no bending required to care for your garden.

                  We bought a 2x8 and 2x4 set of these planters this spring. They were very easy to assemble and look great on our deck. They make gardening easy! Love the heighth and the convenience and we can finally have vegetables that the deer and rabbits can't get to!! Going to buy another 2x4 set while they're on sale!!

                    Looks Good on Our Deck

                    Cons

                    • Could be taller

                    Best Uses

                      This fits perfect on our small deck and is exactly what I expected. It's partially assembled and was easy and quick to finish. However, Gardeners Supply must not think that FedEx will drop the package on the corners-----the packaging does not protect the corners and one of the aluminum legs was slightly dinged up. I just bent it back into the proper position. Otherwise very satisfied.

                      I am thrilled with my two new garden boxes. I'm growing row crops I can't grow in the ground due to creatures that get into the yard and eat everything. These were easy to assemble and made of quality materials. The only down side is that you need a staple gun to make the landscape cloth that helps hold the soil in place stay put before adding soil. We borrowed our neighbor's. Overall, this is a great product!

                      • We Stained It Ourself

                      Best Uses

                      • Bush Beans
                      • Cucumbers
                      • Eggplant
                      • Kale And Lettuce
                      • Sugar Snap Peas
                      • Tomatoes

                      On May 15th this planter arrived; on June 15th the kale was 15 inches tall, the tomatoes flourishing, the eggplant and cucumber growing taller, and the bush beans begun. All this with no bending or lifting! Living in an area with deer, rabbits, and other garden perils, this container garden removed all those threats. It sits attractively on our deck, visible from inside and outside the house, easy to monitor for watering, trimming, picking.
