The built-in composter on this elevated bed lets you recycle your kitchen scraps and yard waste into nutrient-rich compost. Simply add the materials to the center compost basket, and as they decompose they add a steady supply of rich organic matter to the soil. The compost also adds moisture, helping to improve the garden's drought-tolerance. Pioneered in Africa, self-sustaining keyhole gardens produce an abundant harvest in a small space, with less work. Keyhole gardens are traditionally filled half-way with alternating layers of "brown" and "green” materials, similar to building a compost pile.

Comments about : Classic Keyhole Garden, 3' x 5':
We got one of these this summer. I can NOT believe the yield we got! We filled it with cucumbers so I could make my pickles. Wow. This was the best yield we have ever had with cukes. We are going to get 2 more before spring! This works.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It is the easiest raised planter I have ever put together. It is well built and is a great addition to anyone's yard. If you are someone who is not good with tools, but want to start a garden at home. Then this is the box I would recommend.
I would get more

I just got them for this season. Made a u garden with them. Not sure about the keyhole it's not sturdy and dirt easily fills it even with compost in it. I'll see how it works

lining the basket with straw is helpful
if you keep the center basket packed in straw it will help with the soil from going into the basket .you can even use shredded newspaper or cardboard

Well packed, easy to assemble, need no tool! Large enough to plant 6 tomatoes and herbs in between. Although the soil keep falling down the compost basket leave no room for scraps. Compost basket is useless because it was made with open lattice instead of tighter meshed. May buy another one?
