      Surprisingly light

      By Debruk

      from Texas

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy assembly

      Cons

      • Very Light Weight Wood

      Best Uses

        Received with all legs cut for one side. After a bit finally received a new set of legs. Also one side had to be replaced because original had board missing. So the quality control is lacking in my opinion. The wood that this is made of is very light weight. Almost of a balsa consistency. I'm really doubtful in the longevity of the product because of this. We will see. The design and the assembly were very good. I didn't have any problems once we had the parts in putting it together although be careful about tightening the screws too tight because of the lightness of the wood. The design is nice. I believe that there will be plenty of space for all of the vegis I have in my summer garden plan. My only wish is that the quality would have been higher and the wood a little more substantial.

                    • Garden In A Small Space

                    Have ordered two of these over the past two years and absolutely LOVE gardening with them. Such an efficient and effective way to raise multiple vegies in a small space at a waist high level! Just purchased another as a gift for a family member who is planning to use it for their kitchen garden this spring.

                    Best Uses

                    • Plants That Need Depth

                    I live in the California desert with perfect weather for growing vegetables from December thru March We have sand...not soil so our ground is unfit for growing anything . This unit is perfect to have a wonderful large deep vegtable garden . Only recommendation is I wish it was on wheels for easy movement. It's very heavy once you've placed it and filled it with soil.
                    I really shopped around and felt this unit was the best value for the money. I hope the quality will have it to last for many many years.

                    Pros

                    • Easy To See What's What
                    • Moveable Feast
                    • No more sore back
                    • Sturdy and well-made

                    Cons

                    • Too Heavy To Move Full

                    Best Uses

                    • Patio Gardening
                    • Small Amounts Gardening
                    • Small space gardening

                    I love this thing! I can reach everything, see everthing and don't have to kneel, stoop or crouch. I stuffed it full of herbs, tomatoes, Swiss chard, cucumbers and zucchini and could have put in another couple of plants. Next year will add marigolds for color and to repel bugs. My only problem, until the plants all filled in, was the curiosity of squirrels...they think it's their playground. I used a quart of your super fertilizer and I could probably braid line strong enough to moor a sailboat with my tomato vines! Everything is still producing like crazy even though it's mid-October; even the tomato and zucchini plants are still blossoming! Wish I had more room, I'd order another one. One suggestion: ever think about adding collapsible or removable trellis-work to the sides to help support vine? I attached some trellis scraps to both sides and gave my cucumbers and zucchini plants something to lean on. All in all, though, this earns an A+ and a gold star on its forehead. Thanks from southeastern Massachusetts!

                    Cons

                    • Squirrel And Bugs Gone

                    This planter was recommended by my friend Bobbi who had really made a wonderful garden in it. She and I are in our senior years so the no bending over is a huge plus. Plus it was fun to build. You gotta use a DeWalt electric drill/screwdriver. Then it's a piece of cake.

                    Best Uses

                    • Any And All Vegies

                    Wife needed to have a raised work space and this VegTrug™ Patio Garden was the perfect item. We configured the VegTrug™ on a slight slope and the water drains to one end and into a plastic bucket. But it would be great if there was some sort of a collection control on the bottom to save the water that drains down below. Just a thought!
