Lasted 2 years in Colorado. I purchased 3 and one has to be replaced this year and the other two next year. May have lasts longer if we had sealed the wood. Otherwise they work great.

Answer: 
I bought several (8) last year, they are not holding up very well. The wood top pieces have broken and the side slats no longer stay in the grooves. Side Slats have bowed or cracked. I love the concept but does not last longer than 2 years. I am looking to replace at least half of them already.

Answer: 
Cedar wood is NOT treated, therefor, chemicals will NOT leach into soil. Cedar wood is naturally preserved, however, probably NOT as long as chemically treated wood; but good enough for me.

Answer: 
Bond does not specify the size of bags. I am guessing s/he is referring to the smaller bags.
The specifications for this product indicate you will need 15 cubic feet to fill the bed.
The larger sized bags sold in garden centers are 64 dry quarts (there are smaller and larger sizes as well; the 64 dry quart bags are the ones that generally run $8.99 to $11.99 give or take).
Convert cubic feet to dry Read More

The larger sized bags sold in garden centers are 64 dry quarts (there are smaller and larger sizes as well; the 64 dry quart bags are the ones that generally run $8.99 to $11.99 give or take).
Convert cubic feet to dry quarts -- 15ft³= 385US qt dry
If you use the larger 64 dry quart bags, you would need 6 bags.
At an average of $10 a bag, you will spend more on the soil than you did for the cedar bed. ;)
There is garden soil (that you mix with your native soil, if you have pretty good soil that just needs a little amending), and there is potting soil (which you don't mix; it is usually used for plants in pots).
I use Mel's Mix (from the 2nd edition of the book Square Foot Gardening): You create the mix yourself using 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 vermiculite, 1/3 compost. Once you create this soil mix, you should only have to occasionally add more compost. You don't need to add more peat or vermiculite.
Hope this helps. Read Less

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 127 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it!! Easy to assemble and will be easy to add onto the 4x4 section in the future! This helped establish a great space for growing vegetables in a larger garden. It is working wonderfully. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to set up, does the job This was a quick setup and did the job well. Looks good for the price, and did not require any complicated instructions to build. The caps for the corner posts gave it a nice finishing touch. The multi-slat sides actually made it sturdier. Just remember when you are putting it together to put one slat in each side first, then level it to the ground before inserting the additional slats. We put this on a slightly sloping grade in our backyard and it was pretty easy to level it after we inserted the first slats by digging. Holds a fair amount of dirt and is adequate for small vegetable patch. We are growing tomatoes, peppers and beans, with some flowers on one side. Would recommend it, for the price it is a good value. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the flexibility I bought several kits last year and added some more this year. I like that you can configure them the way you want. Very easy to put together and seems to be holding up. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product! I bought the first two to build an enclosure for a couple turtles. This was so easy to put together, and looked so good, I've bought several more and expanded the enclosure from 4'x8' to 12'x12'. When I got the first two, by setting them up without having them divided, I was able to make the walls higher. I've been able to go four boards high with the corner posts for the kits for 3 board high kits. I will definitely be buying more of these, and I recommend them to all of my friends for both gardening and turtle pens. July 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good size and depth This is a sturdy raised bed. I also like it because,of the depth and width of it..It took about ten minutes or less to put it together..excluding the top pieces.. You need a screwdriver to screw those in. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simple and Inexpensive This is a simple design. The four posts and the planks have dovetail joins. Like other reviewers have said, I found a fair amount of remaining sawdust in the notches. I passes the blade of a screwdriver through each one before setting up to remove anything loose. The planks slid easily into the notches. The whole setup took minutes. Note that there is no stabilizing or locking-in built into this bed. The planks slide to the ground and the subsequent planks stack side-to-side. The whole thing is free to move. The good part is you have a lot of room for adjustment by using the contour of the soil underneath or rocks to level things. I rank the quality low, because the planks are thin enough that you wouldn't want to sit on this bed as you reach across. But the bottom line is that I couldn't even build a bed from scratch for this low price. June 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Very pleased with Cedar Raised GARDEN BED Garden Bed, 4ft.x4ftx10.5" of cedar, delivered timely and in excellent condition. Easy assembly. Only tool needed was screwdriver to screw on wooden caps on corners. Shoveled off green grass growth. Leveled bed so frame/rim of bed was level. Placed blanket of cardboard to inhibit weed growth. Filled bed with mix of organic soil and peat moss. Planted strawberry plants. June 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent raised bed garden Very easy to assemble. This is my first raised bed vegetable garden, so I bought a smaller size. This product offers the ability to add on next year if I am so inclined. Nice looking. Working great so far. June 7, 2016
