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.

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

    The planter box was everything we'd hoped it would be, exactly what we were looking for. It took about 45 minutes to assemble. We've located it on our back deck. The price point for this quality was outstanding. The cedar quality is very good and the manufactured structural components are well-designed and very good quality. We couldn't be happier. I think another one will be in our future.

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

        I use the planter mainly for herbs and lettuces and it holds an enormous amount. Assembling the planter was simple and prior to using it for the first time, we did use Cedar Garden Bed Oil which lasted for the entire growing season. This spring we have re-oiled the unit but I will be starting to re-oil twice a year rather than just in spring to help it withstand the winter. I live in Montana and my yard is south-facing so the planter does need extra care for my area. I am planning on purchasing a second unit once we finish our deck because I would love to start growing vegetables.

        This is a very heavy and sturdy unit. Once the planter is filled it is difficult to move so make sure you place it well. We bought the unit with the additional frame and used the netting frequently. We did not use the greenhouse cover yet but I can see using it in the future and appreciate the quality. The frame itself is a bit wobbly and detaches frequently in strong winds, but once we figured out where the frame came apart it was easy to fix this. We also had to secure the framing to the bed with bungee cords during a few weeks of stronger winds, but that was due to our placement of the planter and irregular weather - not the quality of the frame.

        I highly recommend this planter and have, many friends that visit ask where I got this planter and have often followed with their own purchase.

              We ordered one of these a year ago and were very happy with it. Got another one to match it this year and were unhappy to find less protective packaging, warped boards, split boards, broken pieces, and a more difficult assembly process. Also, every time you order something Gardner's Supply's relentless daily spamming starts all over again. I'm guessing there are better options.

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

              Please read! I wish I had thought about this ahead of time. Between last growing season and this Spring, my box sank over 10 inches into the ground. My spouse reminded me that the weight on each leg is equal to a refrigerator. Okay, I'll take his word for it as I'm not about to do those calculations. We spent close to 10 hours digging out around the legs, levering up the filled box, and installing stone, gravel, and concrete pavers so this doesn't happen again. Think carefully about where you're going to place your planter box. I'd buy another in an instant if I thought I could afford it but I'm using the fabric grow bags instead.

                This is the second one I purchased. First one went together easily. This one had no predrilled holes in wood. Made assembly difficult.
