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 have three of these raised planter boxes. I love that I can garden while standing. They are as advertised. The wood does need to be sealed if they are to last in the Colorado sunshine.

      For years I've strained my back tending to my vegetable garden. This is my second purchase of raised beds and I'm loving them! I've tried gardening in pots and while there are some plants that do well, most do much better in the raised beds. The beds were easy to assemble with help from my son. They look beautiful and so far are doing well in the warm New Mexico sun. The raised beds I purchased around five years ago are still looking good and holding up well. I'm confident these will do the same if I continue to oil them.

      False information in completing survey

      By Tricia

      from california

      Verified Reviewer

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

      I reluctantly just ordered a second raised garden bed. The product I think is fine, I have ordered one already but waiting for warmer weather to plant. But I was sent a lengthy questionnaire with the first order and was told I would receive free shipping on my next purchase for completing it. But because the item was already on sale, the free shipping code does not apply. I would not have taken the time to complete the survey if I had known it would only be good on full price items. Just frustrating when my hope were up for a better deal, as these boxes are not cheap to begin with.

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

        We bought two of these planters and had a little issue putting one of them together. Getting a couple of the metal brackets to line up was difficult. We found that when we skipped the difficult ones and completed the ones that lined up, the difficult ones were easier to attach. Other then that, they were easy and they look beautiful! I am so happy with how they turned out and am looking forward to growing veggies without my dog trampling them!

            Living with a small back yard and populated with abundant bunnies this elevated bed is just what I needed.
            Used the oil application that was suggested and by box looks beautiful.

              I'm excited to be able to garden without strggling to get up and down. Also going to be able to maximize the sun exposure in my driveway. It will also provide a visual barrier between my patio and my neighbors not so attractive porch understorage.

                  I think this will be a very good solution in our limited garden space on a cement patio. We paid a handyman to put it together and treat it with a cedar wood treatment.
                  It's waiting to be filled and planted.
                  I do hope the included weed cloth does the job of keeping soil from falling through gaps between the bottom boards.
