        Love it, love it, love it! This trug is beautiful to look at! It holds an amazing amount of soil and the depth of the soil is also amazing! I'll have no problem growing those deep rooted plants with this setup! We've gotten so many admiring comments about it. It's not that hard to put together...I didn't know once I saw they had a "how to" video to watch about the process. I thought oh, man if there's a video it must be complicated; but it wasn't bad at all. I do think you need more than one person there just to help hold pieces in place while attaching them.

            I like this planter due to the design. This is being used in a senior facility where access to the planter from a wheel chair might be necessary. The height is also a factor in the purchase. The seniors can garden without bending down. Once the veg trug was put together and I saw it for the first time my reaction was "It's beautiful" Didn't think that a planter would evoke a response like that or could be beautiful but this planter was Hugh, sturdy, well designed. At this point I haven't put dirt in it due to finishing the spot where it is to go but I do not anticipate any trouble with this planter applying the dirt will make it even sturdier.

              The Greenhouse cover helped start seeds early. Switched to the insect Screen once the evening temperatures warmed up.

              This is my first attempt at patio/container vegetable gardening. The investment is worth not having the deer and little critters eat my baby plants every year. I am not a good assembler, but with a bit of study and patience I got it together. I love, love, love this garden's ingenious design. I will use it early next season with the cover for seeds/seedlings, and will probably order another!

              Comments about Vegtrug™ Patio Garden:

              This is the latest veg trug added to my collection! Now all 3 have both greenhouse and insect covers and I'm able to plant my seeds outside weeks earlier than usual. Early veggie starts love it too. My paralysis and arthritis make hands and knees gardening impossible, so these veg trugs have brought a whole new level(No pun intended!) to my gardening pleasure and excitment!

                Several of the wood parts were split and broken upon arrival. The wood is of low quality. It is easy to asemble. I have doubts about the long term use of this planter - it does not look durable.

                  The worst thing about this product was: no idea or information about when this item was shipped or how it was shipped or when to expect it. You did not tell what name product to use for protecting it.

                  Assembled parts were pre-cut but had to be trimmed to fit...Wood had a strong chemical odor when unpacked.. Informed by Gardener's customer service that the product is made with " earth friendly materials ".. Short of submitting wood samples to an independent lab, I question that statement... Positive note would be on the height and easy of mobility in working with plants.
