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:

    We decided to try one of these and then decide if we wanted another next year. I think we will. Assembly was reasonably easy. It is sturdy and drains well. Our vegetables are doing very well after 2-3 weeks. I don't anticipate any problems, but will reserve my final judgement on this after I have finished the season with it.

          Planted zucchini, tomatoes, green beans, eggplant from small plants and peas, beets and carrots from seed. All are doing great, easy to see and work with, and no bending over to clean the bed.

              I wanted to start growing my own vegetables but had no great place in our yard - however, we have a large patio with lots of sunlight. This was a perfect solution. We had such good results last year that I instantly thought of my mother-in-law who has had a garden for years, but after hip replacement has had more challenges working her garden in the ground. This elevated bed will allow her to continue without all the up and down.

                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.
