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.

    Very easy to put together, great craftsmanship. Gave me plenty of room to get all my vegetables in and most importantly no more having to get on my knees! Love it and have recommended to friends and family.

      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.

                Last spring I bought 1 just to try it out for growing my herbs. Loved it so much, I bought 3 more for the spring! Easy to maintain. Love that it's waist high for ease of gardening!

                    I was introduced to Square Foot Vegetable Gardening a few years ago and wanted a raised bed to put on my patio at a second home. This bed is not only beautiful, but fits the Square Foot Gardening concept perfectly. The bed was easy to assemble. Note, however, that once it is loaded with soil mixture, it is too heavy to relocate.

                      Just the right size and very cute design.
                      Can't say too much about weather since we love in LA and hasn't started raining yet.
                      Looks sturdy and the wood so far looks good through the watering.

                        I bought three of the 2x8 elevated raised beds to keep groundhogs from inhaling my vegetable garden! The metal legs don't have anything to grab onto. I will plant garlic and other plants that they aren't interested in eating in the existing lower beds.
