Exclusive | Elevated Planter Boxes Are 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 16 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.

  • Cedar with aluminum corners and imported fabric liner
  • 96" L x 24" W x 29" H
  • Holds approx. 13 cubic feet (329 dry quarts) of container mix
  • Easy assembly
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

      Great option for the non-DIYer

      • Uneven Wood Tones

      Best Uses

        Was beginning to think our only solution for a planter to fit our patio space would be having it custom built. Then I came across this on GS website. We live on 2 acres with lots of deer so unless we put up a very high deer fence ($$$), putting a planter on the patio is our best (I hope) solution. This stylish planter is perfect size to place on the long, narrower part of our patio. House trim is cedar and after staining it the same color planter looks like it came with the house. :-) Height is easy to work with and there is plenty of room for two compact variety tomatoes, all my cooking herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano, mint, parsley, etc.) AND a few ornamentals for some added color. Space gets about 6 hours of sun when it's out, which it was not for these pics. I recommend staining the cedar as the panels used really vary in color and there are a lot of knots. I also used a marine vanish to help preserve the color as long as possible. Recommended soaker hose kit is just the right size for the planter, making watering much easier! My husband and I put it together in about an hour, then it took a few hours to stain (2 coats). Waited a full day before I varnished. And another 24 hours before I filled it with dirt. I would have given it 5 stars if better care was taken in selecting lumber when manufactured.

                    I bought this to replace one that I built that was lower to the ground. and After four years of use out the other one I found this one online. I am hoping I get the same results from this one as I had from my old one with less bending over.

                    from The Villages, Florida

                    Verified Buyer

                    Pros

                    • Came Partially Assembled
                    • Easy to assemble
                    • Outstanding materials

                    Cons

                    • Shorter Than Wanted

                    Best Uses

                      The kit arrived well packed, with good instructions on how to assemble. To maintain the appearance of the wood, it needs to be coated on the outside. The legs were shorter than I wished, so I built a frame out of 2" x 6" and installed and leveled that in our lawn. It serves as a wall to cut grass to, and also supports the legs a few inches above the turf. The result is a steady, level structure for stability and long term use.

                      I was a little concerned that the 8 foot free span of this garden would sag under the load of soil inside, but after 1 month, it shows no sign of sagging.
                      All in all, well worth the money, great looking, quick install. As advertised.

                      • Raised Gardening

                      The information says that you can put it together without power tools. I would doubt it. We began with a screwdriver and quickly gave in to using a power drill. The wood of one of the long sides was split, but not so noticeably that it was worth the trouble of sending it back. The planks that fit in the bottom, did not fit, and so we had to take one to a friend to saw it down by about 2". All that said, now that it is put together, it looks great and has a great amount of space for plants.

                      • Heavybig Boxes
                      • Very difficult to move

                      Best Uses

                        The very heavy boxes were dumped right in front of my front door; you couldn't go in & out and it was several days before I could get help with moving them. Be sure to specify where you want the boxes put upon delivery. I am curious to see how this cedar holds up; it looks nice but seems a little thin. Id like to order 2 more but will wait to see how these work out. I'm also going to try to raise them a little higher (maybe put cinder blocks under legs?): I'm tall and I have to bend over too much as they are now.

                            Best Uses

                              This raised bed planter arrived in great condition, we weren't missing any parts out of the boxes.

                              As other good folks have said in these reviews, the drill holes don't match up which makes putting this together a bit of a bear. My husband assembled this himself and did a great job despite the drill hole issues.

                              Of course as soon as it was built we noticed quite a few chipmunks making their way to our deck, so then my husband built what we're calling a "screen house" to go over the raised bed planter. I honestly think Gardeners would do well to sell something similar to our contraption for other people who have critters visiting their gardens.
