Description

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.

  • 96" L x 24" W x 29" H

    Raised beds are great.

    By patti

    from Brant Rock, MA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • No Bending Or Kneeling

    Cons

      Best Uses

        We used the calculations through the catalog to purchase soil to fill the beds which worked out well. The height is perfect. We did not purchase the drip lines for watering, so we have to water frequently. Harvesting is easy.

        Raised Cedar Bed

        By green jogger

        from Castro Valley, CA

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Arrived quickly
        • Looks great when finished

        Cons

        • poor workmanship
        • Workmanship Shoddy

        Best Uses

        • Raised Garden

        Shipping and and receiving great. Directions not very specific.
        Lining up the screws and the holes in the metal was VERY difficult.
        We had to use a power drill and set the holes prior to putting things together because things didn't line up at all.
        Screws were poor quality and would not drill into the metal without resetting the holes.

        Finished product looks great and we are happy with our finished product.

        from Slidell, LA

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Fast Easy Assembly
        • Good working height
        • Solid Construction

        Cons

        • A bit pricey

        Best Uses

          From start to finish, assembly took 15 minutes. All pieces lined up well, no warped or cracked boards. Has a very attractive appearance. Would have given five stars if the price was lower...but if cedar isn't available in your area, don't let that stop you!

          • Sturdy Construction

          Best Uses

          • Veggies Veggies Veggies

          This was the perfect solution for me to continue gardening with less time and less physical strength available. The ample container right now is holding 4 large tomato plants, 3 pepper plants, 2 basil plants, 6 cucumber vines, and 2 marigold plants. I like the natural cedar as I garden organically.
          I plan on buying a second container next year.

                      Best Uses

                        This is a project with 4 year old grandson. It will be his garden plot to plant and grow his choice of vegetables. It is the perfect height for him. He helped with assembly and staining the outside. We will fill with soil and plant next Spring, but so far we are very satisfied.

                            Best Uses

                              Used for lettuces, cabbage, and tomatoes. Very attractive no matter what you grow! I had problems with rabbits this year so I decided to buy 2 of these. Only thing I should've done is purchased a netting system for cabbage worms! Other than that the neighbors were impressed with the look of it and I was amazed how nicely everything grew. Only had one screw strip and they enclose extras. I would highly recommend it! I can now eliminate the clutter of pots!

                              • Size And Height Perfect

                              Cons

                              • Add Center Support
                              • Pick Local Doesn't Move

                              Best Uses

                              • Deck Garden
                              • Wind break

                              IT WILL HOLD ALMOST ALL THE "CLOSE TO THE GROUND" VEGGIES I GROW WHEN COMBINED WITH THE OTHER RAISED BEDS. IT SEEMS TO BE STURDY. I WOULD ADD A CENTER SUPPORT, ( I MAY DO JUST THAT)
                              IT TAKES TWO PEOPLE TO ASSEMBLE.
