Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Veggie Good Product, Slow Delivery
The timber boards are not solid wood, but molded, hollow boards made from recycled materials. They seem strong enough and I'm optimistic they will last despite their apparent thinness. The joint in the middle of the 8' section has a tendency to bend outwards under the pressure of the soil. Perhaps if I had a garden that could be staked into the ground on that side I would not have that problem. I do wish it had been one long, solid 8' timber instead of two 4' timbers. Good overall product. Poor customer service in delivery. I did not get confirmation of delivery of my product until 10 days after I placed my order.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pamela Love this bed!
I'm a new gardener and though I'm very handy with a saw and hammer, I really didn't want to build planter beds. These beds are very nice and should last a long time without maintenance too.
The installation was easy for me as a 5'1" tall woman by myself. I did pre-drill the holes as another reviewer suggested after struggling with the first one. The only problem I had was that if the screw was tightened just a hair too much, it totally stripped out the hole, and FELL out. Next time I will cut blocks of wood to insert into the hollow space in the boards so it has something to grip onto.
I will be getting 3 more of these as they are the perfect size for the area I need.

Though I had reads the good review on HD and other sites, I was concerned about the amount of landscape rock I had to work with considering the anchors. It was a breeze. It did take quite a bit of time to assemble the garden, but it was well worth it. Everything is growing nicely! Two suggestions I would make- use a rubber mallet when attaching the anchors to the garden and use an electric screwdriver to attach the screws to the slats.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Munchkinsmom Easy, but took 2 people
We decided on this product since we have wood siding and can't have dirt directly against it. We purchased several kits to make our own design. We started at 9 am and by 1 pm we had 2 raised garden beds completed. Screwing the corner joints into the resin wood took the most time and needed 2 people. After that, only 1 person to fit all the pieces together. Came with all the pieces required. When we get further with the construction of our home, we plan to purchase more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by valturas Easy assembly - Excellent results
Our raised garden beds arrived in a timely manner. They were easy to assemble with the help of a electric drill with a screw driver bit. I do not recomend trying to use a manual screw driver.
We are well into harvest now and the results are awesome. With all the rain we had this spring, my plants would have drown in our clay rich soil without the raised beds.
I also purchased the frame and netting. It was a little to short for my pole beans, but the cumcumbers have really taken to it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillB Easily assembled, sturdy, does what its supposed to do
The package arrived quickly, it was easy to assemble, sure takes a lot of dirt to fill it. Looks good. I bought it because it is plastic which should be durable and plastic doesn't have the chemicals that is in treated wood, chemicals that could leach into the vegetables. Two of the boards were broken on delivery. Home Depot sent three replacement boards with no problem other than it took three weeks to arrive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jesse Composite Plastic. The way to go. You won't regret it.
We bought our house 25 years ago and tilled a 50' x 50' garden. Over the years we added 4' x 8' x 12" raised beds. These were built out of cedar which is rot and insect resistant, they are not rot proof. Just fill one with dirt and see how long they last, or rather how quickly they rot. These plastic composite bed kits went together without a hitch. We did follow the advice and didn't use the screws that came with the kit. Went to the hardware store and bought some beefy sheet metal screws that held like they meant business. At a little over 200 bucks they are a little pricey BUT should last forever. Film at eleven.
