Additional Information

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.

    I bought this last season and it has held up very well to New England weather. It is sturdy and attractive too! I lined mine with gardening fabric and draining hasn't been a problem. I would def recommend.

        I am in my 60s and was quite able to assemble these (I bought 2) by myself. I did need help of a couple of pre teen neighbor boys to move them into place. I admit it would have been easier to assemble with a helper, but there were none available at the time I was assembling. Still haven't determined the best spot for them, so haven't loaded them with soil yet. they seem very sturdy.

          Although my father and husband didn't read the instructions well, it held up to their unneccessary modifications before going back the original way.

            I bought two of these planters to deter the local groundhogs (who can jump up to 24") and to make vegetable gardening easier on my lower back. They supplement three large raised beds I built -- and were so much faster to assemble! I assembled both beds on my own and completed the task in a little over an hour. While an extra pair of hands might have been nice, it isn't impossible to assemble these solo if you use a little ingenuity. My husband and I carried the two units to their designated spot in the garden; a little heavy but not impossible to carry. I was worried they'd be too top heavy and easy to knock over if I leaned on them while gardening, but now that they've got the soil in them, they're solid. So far, I'm very pleased with these beds!

            Don't forget you drill

            Overall a good product. The real issues occur in the final stages of assembly. The more that has been assembled the harder it becomes to align the bolt holes and attach the nuts. In fact, the holes in the two long braces do not match at all. One brace has two holes and the other three and none of them match. Just be prepared to drill new holes and experience some level of frustration during the process.

            I have not planted the box but I am concerned about the depth being sufficient to grow tomatoes but only time will tell.

              Comments about : 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Planter Box:

              My arthritis makes bending over or getting on my knees really hard. This container has 16 square feet of space and is doing a marvelous job of square foot gardening.. My daughter and I are already harvesting leaf crops and herbs and eagerly anticipating the beans, peppers, tomatoes and melons that are staring to set. Amazing how easy this planter has made it all!
