Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Good product for a raised bed garden.
We purchased 2 sets last year and the gardens worked well. We expanded our garden this year with 2 more sets. On one set that we purchased this year, there were some cracks on the end of the boards and one corner piece was cracked. Not sure whether these were due to shipping or poor manufacturing. I was able to put the raised beds together. Used PVC glue on the corner piece. There is a definite difference between the exterior appearance of the boards when comparing last year's sets with this year's sets. The sun does fade the exterior surface. Other than the fading, the raised beds that I built last year are in excellent condition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle Simple to Put Together, Exactly What I Needed
This was exactly what I needed to attempt my first raised bed garden. If all "grows well", I anticipate I will buy another Frame It All Unit to add to my existing bed for my fall plantings. This was super-easy to put together, and it didn't bow out once I filled it with compost and soil, which was mentioned in some of the other reviews for this product. I would highly recommend this product to gardeners of all levels!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Organic NIce Looking but quality control of manufacturer could be better
Materials should last much longer than if I had used wood for my planters. The aesthetic look and feel is nice in the garden too. I was a little disappointed with my order given the cost: one "plastic" board being cracked in three places at one end. I was able to used some Gorilla glue and the end cap to hold it in place and hid that board on the backside of my planter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dserrano Easy to set up, looks great and from recycled materials.
Easy to set up, looks great and from recycled materials. It easily stacks to make deeper beds. I like how it comes in modular units, 1 box has the materials for a 4'x4'x6 " deep bed. This makes to boxes easier to move/manage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JR Has not gone through winter yet. Cannot tell if this box will hold up.
have to pay attention to assembly. easy to reverse connectors. Have square to ensure corners are to put correctly in place to square off your garden box. plastic stakes do not do the job. Break easily when trying to hammer in place. I used concrete rods will hold the best considering the pressure of dirt from the inside of the box.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by hash Good Idea, but Poor Quality
I purchased 8 of these to create 4 one foot deep beds. I originally thought the material was the "tough stuff" made from recycled milk bottles. The material is as stated ABS plastic which is brittle. One board was received broken in two places. I had to reorder a package of four and return the broken board along with three good boards because they are not sold individually. When I started screwing them together one of the corner brackets broke. I am certain that as soon as this ABS plastic is exposed to cold weather it will break at the slightest pressure. Choose metal brackets if you can find them. HD should find a better quality supplier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scruffy Good purchase. Need a rubber mallet to put it together
This product is as advertised as far as materials go. It was simple to erect and seems to be holding up to the dirt and rain. I found no problems except for the anchors that hold the sides together. It is a good idea to scrape or sand the ends of the boards so they slide into the anchors easily. Otherwise you could breal off the groove they slide into. A little sanding works.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle Will not last very long.
I purchased 4 sets of these in 2012 and all of them are bowing out on the sides. I tried to put one back together after removing all of the dirt, but the bowed pieces made it impossible to have a tight fit. Filling it with dirt is a challenge because the boards just want to pop out. Whenever I try to harvest potatoes from these beds, the boards collapse and the dirt spills out. The other issue is that the end caps have been lost over time, so the beds are just plain ugly at this point. When you work in a garden as much as myself, the product needs to be able to stand up to a beating. I might have to take them all apart, remove the spikes from the ground, and do it all over again. Or, I will just put them away the the junk under the deck that might have some other use in the future.
