Exclusive | Elevated Grow Shelter is an All-In-One Raised Bed, Greenhouse and Pest Barrier

We couldn’t find a sturdy and attractive elevated growing system — so we designed and built it ourselves! The result is a self-contained growing system that’s easy to tend and protects plants from chill, wind, heavy rain, insects, birds and animal pests — including deer, dogs and cats. We started with our popular, Vermont-made, 4' x 4' Elevated Cedar Raised Bed. Then we added a powder-coated steel frame and two-part cover that’s tall enough for big crops like tomatoes. This mini greenhouse's reinforced PVC outer cover protects plants from chill. Large zippered openings reveal the insect netting underneath and let you adjust ventilation. There are zippered openings in the netting, too, for easy access to plants and to allow pollinating insects to reach plants.

  • Cedar, aluminum, marine-grade plywood, powder-coated steel, nylon connectors, reinforced PVC fabric
  • 4' L x 4' W x 7' H overall
  • Elevated Raised Bed is 4' W x 4' L x 29" H
  • Planting depth is 10"
  • Holds 329 quarts of soil
  • Assembly required
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

        Basically good!

        By Jardiniere

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Solid foundation

        Cons

        • Top Is Unstable

        Best Uses

        • Herbs
        • Organics
        • Vegetables

        The foundation of this product is solid and isn't terribly difficult to assemble, even for one person. However, since I've put this together I have had to reassemble the top part several times. Every time it gets windy, the bars fall apart. Right now I have it holding together with duct tape. My veggies and herbs are sprouting in it, though, so I'd still recommend it--just be ready with the duct tape or glue!

        Pros

        • Easy construction
        • Good Quality
        • Slightly Dinged Up But Ok

        Cons

        • Could be deeper
        • Wood Could Be Thicker

        Best Uses

        • Square Foot Garden

        fairly easy to put together with two people. Quality is pretty good , though thicker wood would last longer. Looks good can't wait to see it in action.

        Great way to save your back and knees

        Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Used to keep animals out of vegetables and keep my back and knees from pain. In Chicago the weather is so unpredictable with wind, temps dropping and rain, this device gets rid of all of that. Have great crops, tomatoes are outstanding in early May. Red beets, carrots, lettuce all come out much earlier in the season with no worries about Chicago weather. I've been looking for this type of gardening for years!

              Great overall

              By amenacorn

              from Poquoson, VA

              Verified Buyer

              Pros

              • Easy to put together
              • Good Large Size
              • Removable cover

              Cons

              • Not Ideal For Cement Pads
              • Plant Depth A Bit Shallow

              Best Uses

                I bought two of these put on a cement porch to frame my front door and provide me a place to keep my more tender plants over the winter.

                Overall I love the product. They are large, but fit nicely in my location. They were easy to put together in under half an hour (with a power drill for the screws), look nice and provide me with a lot of planting space. The covers work well, are easy to put on, and seem very durable for a flexible plastic product.

                The only problems that I have with them are: planting depth and no water weep holes at the very bottom.

                The planting depth is fine for probably 90% of things - vegetables and flowers it is more than adequate and plenty deep. But I have a dwarf citrus tree I was planning on putting in and the depth is a very close fit. I will probably be able to make it work, but I may have to mound the dirt a bit.

                The weep hole problem will only be an issue for people placing the bed on a hard surface like my cement porch. There are drainage holes in the bottom of the planting bed itself, however once the water drains from the soil into the open area under the planting platform, there is no easy way for it to drain elsewhere. Not a problem if the planter is placed on dirt or sand, but not ideal for surfaces that don't drain *down*.

                However, overall a very nice product. It should even be easy to replace individual boards if it is ever needed as the corners should last a good long while.

                Pros

                • Easy to put together

                Cons

                • No Bed Liner Included

                Best Uses

                  I have not used the product yet. It was very easy to put together. This product does not include liner should state that so customers know to purchase liner separate.
