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.

  • Cedar with aluminum corners and imported fabric liner
  • 96" L x 24" W x 29" H
  • Holds approx. 13 cubic feet (329 dry quarts) of container mix
  • Easy assembly
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

    Works well...

    By Davey

    from Hopewell Junction, NY

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Good size

    Cons

    • Hollow Underneath

    Best Uses

      We got two of these in the spring of 2014 to add to our new vegetable garden. They were easy to put together except the boards in the bottom were about a half-inch too wide. The soil eventually pushed them down.

      We filled them with soil (lots and lots of soil) and grew a variety of items: beans, celeriac, carrots and peppers. Everything had plenty of room, even the carrots.

      Two issues we had that someone else can learn from: First, because these containers are hollow underneath, they became home to a huge paper wasp nest. By the time we realized the nest was there, it was visible. We had to hire pest control to remove it. For this year, we have hung bars of soap underneath to keep the wasps away.

      Second, we placed both containers directly on the ground and then filled them. During the winter, they sank into the dirt (see photo of back container leveled and front still sunken). We had to empty them and lift them onto pieces of slate. We hope the slate doesn't crack, and they stay level and above-ground.

      All in all, we are pleased. I just wish they weren't hollow on the bottom.

      Great product - Highly Recommend

      Pros

      • Attractive
      • Easy to assemble
      • Fast shipping
      • Perfect height

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Square foot gardening
        • Urban Backyard Garden

        I have 2 of the 2 x 8 and one of the 4 x 4 set up for square foot gardening. Each planter took approx. 13 cubic feet of 'Mel's Mix'. They were easy to assemble and are the perfect height to keep the bunnies out and comfortable to work without bending.

        I am using the medium cucumber trellis on the 4 x 4 where I'm growing cucumbers and squash. The tomato ladders are the perfect size for SFG as are the pepper and eggplant cages. I also bought the bean tower. All very high quality products. I highly recommend.

            Problem with assembly.

                Best Uses

                  There was minor damage in shipping, assembly instructions were not perfect, bottom board needed to be cut in order to fit properly. I won a table saw so it want too difficult to remedy the problem but, I should not have had to do that.

                  It's up and she loves it.

                              • Gardening

                              We shopped around and looked at many different raised bed planters and finally settled on this one primarily based on aesthetics. It does look great and has good capacity. The only negative about it is that it's really a two person job to assemble it. It can be done with one(I did it) but it was very frustrating and would have been much easier with help. I ended up having to drill out one of the pre-drilled holes to make it line up properly but it all worked out. They are sturdy and they look great!
