Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gardenmaven Fantastic addition to our yard
We wanted raised beds but to say we aren't "handy" is an understatement. We bought three of these beds and they are perfect and at a price that you can't beat. The cedar is the best wood for a garden. We dug down 6" then filled them with organic top soil. The kids loved the ease of planting in them. If you've ever thought about vegetable gardening, this is the perfect way to start.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KGPOL This product was a disappointment
I waited for 2 weeks for this garden bed to arrive. When I finally got it, I followed the instructions and laid everything out. When I started to assemble the parts, the plastic end pieces/joints were breaking on me when I started to hammer them into the ground with a rubber hammer. At first I thought that I hit it to hard, so on the next one I did it lighter and slower, and it also broke. I ended up breaking 5 plastic connectors, so I put everything back into the box and returned the item to my local store. I was very disappointed at the quaility of the plastic end parts and how they kept on cracking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy I love my new garden!!!
It was easy to assemble and to plant. I put landscaping material down before planting and then ordered "supersoil" and the dump truck just backed in and dumped the soil to fill the garden bed. It's the perfect size to just start out with organic vegetable growing for me since I am new to this. It's attractive and all my friends want to admire it as well as the neighbors. Thank you for a great product.

Love the product and was easy to put together. Only draw back was parts were broke and never heard back from my email asking for replacement parts. Instead of making them 12 in high had to go with 6 in. high. Will make them into herb gardens until I can replace broken parts. I wouldnt hesitate ordering them again, just wished I would of heard back from company.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cycledoc Somewhat disappointing
This is an expensive solution. The options however are either more flimsy and/or to use non-wood boards.
The kit arrived nicely packaged and putting it together was not difficult. Durability is questionable because of the rather flimsy appearing plastic, yes genuine plastic, corners and joint hinges. I didn't break any but it would be easy to do so. How long they'll last in a garden in which you will sooner or later bump them with a shovel, hoe or whatever is anyone's guess--mine is that I'll likely be looking for metal corner hinges to replace chipped or broken pieces with in a year.
The boards are real cedar. Hopefully they will endure the N.W. climate. After putting this together I figure it would be more economical in the long run to simply use less expensive pine boards and replace the pieces as they deteriorate, than pay the premium for a flimsy cedar kit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mwestendorf57 The product would be great but the plastic brackets and stakes broke on installation.
The plastic brackets and stakes need to be replaced with a stronger material

Nice cedar wood sides, wish the corners were stronger or maybe metal or wood instead of plastic.

I was not impressed with the plastic anchors. It sorely limited where I could put the garden. Think HD would be wise to improve the quality of the parts.
