Way too much Water Use
from Marin County, CA
Comments about : 18" x 72" Wallhugger VegTrug™ with Covers:
In an in-ground garden or in most elevated gardens, evaporation is mostly from the top surface. This planter has slats lined with fabric rather than solid sides and bottom. So evaporation is from literally all surfaces of the body of soil. Drying out is almost instant. If you live in a damp climate, I imagine the Trug would work fine, but in a dry/warm climate, you have to be watering daily and probably more to get anything to grow. It is a terrible water waster!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy to assemble and looks great
from Rochester, MN
Put this together (by myself) in half an hour, and it was so easy it was fun. All pre-cut parts fit without alignment problems, and all holes for the screws are pre-drilled and lined up easily too. It is very light, so I was able to move it around without help. It looks great too. We use it indoors (without dirt) next to a large picture window to display 5 bonsai trees in their small bowls. The frame and cover allows us to control humidity during the winter here in Minnesota. We also hung a 4 foot grow light from the frame without any alterations, and it handles the weight easily. If you do this, you want to keep the cover open so heat doesn't build up? We close the cover at night to keep the humidity level up, then remove the cover completely (take it off the frame) in the morning.

Nice elevated planter
from Princeton, NJ
Bought this to replace tired aging pots. Planter and screens shipped separately but no big deal. Planter box is large but can be handled by one. For assembly you will want 2 sets of hands although I managed by myself. The planter looks nice out of box but requires careful handling do to soft pine wood is easily damaged. I HIGHLY recommend watching the manufacture's YouTube assembly videos several times before jumping in. The part about not tightening screws is critical if you want your planter to fit together properly. Also, a strong set of hands at certain points and patience throughout is key to a good build. Plan to spend 1 to 2 hours.The cover frame and covers go together easily and look good.I would have preferred a harder wood but understand that would add to cost and perhaps make the build tougher. All in all, it seems like a good product. Time will tell if it holds up.
Great design for small spaces
By Terrie the cat lady
So excited to use this! I have a small yard but want to grow my own vegetables, especially salad greens. This is the perfect solution. We put it together today and the only thing that was disappointing is the end pieces didn't fit like they should have. There was a gap on the slanted side of each end piece and the only way to fix that was to attach it crooked. Other than that, it seems sturdy and will be a nice addition to my yard.
