Additional Information

Exclusive | Elevated Planter Boxes Are Easy to Plant, Tend and Harvest

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.

Above ground raised bed comments

Pros

  • Don't have to bend over much to use it

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about : 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Planter Box:

      This is the 2nd above ground planter I ordered. Assembly on the first wasn't too difficult, a recently blown out knee complicated things a little and you definitely need to read the instructions. It was starting to get late in the season so we planted cold friendly flowers and vegetables like kale, swiss chard and pansies.
      Since it was located out on the grass the weight from wet dirt eventually caused the legs to start sinking into the ground at an angle. I was able to use a floor jack to raise the bed high enough to put blocks under all the legs. After it stayed below freezing the better part of 2 weeks the bed pretty much froze solid so that was it for the year.
      We are planning to put in new plants once it warms up a little and are looking forward to getting the 2nd bed ready for spring.

      Worth every penny and more! I wish I had bought one sooner

      This was worth the money. It did two things for us, allowed us to place a garden where it would get most sun to get plants going early in our PA climate, and, was raised which allowed me to work at it more frequently- I can easily go out to end of driveway to fiddle with the plants, feedings, etc., even before I head off to work rather than having to be dressed to work in my garden- like with growing in raised beds in ground. Perfect for a garden lover who works and commutes. The amount of vegetable and herbs that were produced was amazing and both starter plants and seed plantings were successful. I kept perennial herbs and replanted the rest adding soil conditioner at the beginning of growing season. When we had to move internationally and could not take this with us :(, our neighbors vied for the planter! They had seen the planter in our driveway and how successfully the plants grew and lined up to take it "off our hands" Now it grows even more plants down the street. This will be our number one purchase when we come back to US in a few years.

      Comments about : 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Planter Box:

      We now have 6 of these and they are great. The two we purchased in the past are supplying us with lettuce and radishes right now, the broccoli, cabbage, onions, peas, spinach etc all looks so healthy and will be giving us veggies for months to come. The new ones are now being filled with soil and will have spring veggies planted by the beginning of March. Product is nice looking, sturdy and your agurantee is excellent.

      We set the planter up a couple of weeks ago and have broccoli, peas, lettuce and spinach coming up. Ordered another planter that arrived last week and we need to put it together. The wood is beautiful.

      We were very impressed with the quality and ease of assembly. The Cedar Garden Oil was easy to apply and had a pleasant citrus aroma for a short while. We were so impressed we ordered a 2x4 version as well.
