Answer: 
I installed mine on a raised platform of wood. I lined it with black mess weed control matt. We filled it with dirt and let it sit for some time , now the dirt has settled and we will soon be adding more dirt to level it out then plant it. I also installed some lattice on the back side for cucumbers and green beans so that they can climb up.

Answer: 
It does not come with a bottom piece so you would need to build one yourself. Or the sides will hold in the soil and the bottom will just be in contact with the patio floor.

I would not recommend using this on a cement slab. First off, in any gardening thinking, you want the soil to drain, and not hold water. This only leads to root rot, and a very unpleasant result.

Second, water would" in this case, most likely drain our, but carry soil along with it, and I'm sure this would not make you happy. You could make it work if you were to put it on some sort of raised platform such as a kids pool with holes drilled in it for drainage. I would not recommend using plywood with holes, as this will rot over time. You could talk to a nursery and show them what your trying to do, and I'm sure they will help you with how to set it up to make you and your plants happy. Read Less

Hi Tustin, according to the instruction/assembly guide you will need 19 cu. ft of soil.
Take a look at each tier and how much each one takes to fill. Link below.

Answer: 
I just bought just garden bed and I was wondering about the wood as well.
On the video they say the wood is chemical-free and that makes it perfect for growing all types of plants and vegetables.
If you think about it, than I wouldn't make any sense to seal it, right?
But I would like to make sure before assemble it too.
Can someone help us? If yes, what type of sealer should we use?
Thank you!

4 ft. x 4 ft. x 21 in. 3-Tiered Cedar Raised Garden Bed is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixed it up. and it turned out gorgeous! We shortened one bed by taking out he middle tier. This made a wider lower tier to fit in an "A-frame" cucumber trellis, and gave us 30 inch boards to put low herb beds in between, with trelisses for peas. We added stepping stones in the lower beds so I can walk in between and access the tomatos that are growing innthe top tiers. It makes our old vegetable garden along the fence an absoute centerpiece of the yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PURCHASE EASY TO ASSEMBLE BY MYSELF. A MALLET WAS HELPFUL AND GLOVES ARE RECOMMENDED TO AVOID SPLINTERS. IT TOOK A LOT MORE SOIL TO FILL THAN WAS EXPECTED.
Date published: 2016-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love it! This garden bed looked like a great idea, and a good value too, for being all cedar. Mine was delivered this afternoon. My son and I put it together in about 15 minutes with no tools! (The posts just needed to have the sawdust scraped out of the routered channels. That was quick and easy.) We were amazed at how simple it was! We assembled it on the driveway, then carried it over to the backyard where we could situate it in just the right spot. It was light as a feather. You just lift it from the bottom. The directions say to fill it with your garden soil as you build it but we didn't. We wanted to be able to move it around to find the best spot before adding the soil. We even recycled the cardboard box! We flattened it out and laid it on the ground beneath the soil. To me it looks bigger than it looks in the pictures. The cedar smells wonderful too!! I. Just. Love. It.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as depicted on web site or box I was impressed with the concept of a dovetail put together system. When the product arrived, I was very dismayed to find rough sawn wood instead of what I saw on the internet, and the box. The Internet shows sanded, finished looking wood. This must have been only for photo oops, because that is not what is in the box. I am retired, and love working with wood a lot, and I found all the connecting block dovetails were in need of cleaning out, or you needed a mallet to do the assembly. They must have a tooling problem, or they are running it at to high a feed rate. After some time in the shop, I was able to assemble as shown in the video. I do like this product for the whole appearance and concept, but just know, it is not as shown, and may required some TLC to make it work as shown. Dave P

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty easy to put together I initially struggled with the assembly b/c the instructions on the box really aren't sufficient. However, I came back inside, brought it up on the Home Depot site and there was an assembly video that explained everything perfectly. The wood was a bit rougher than I expected (splintery and unfinished) but that's no big deal for something meant to be filled with dirt. All in all, I really like it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Raised bed I like the raised bed. It's what i expected, However the directions on how to put together are not self explanatory. Some of the boards are too small for the the tracks and kept on falling off. I had to fasten with nails. Also the tracks that keep the raised bed together are not deep enough and keeps sliding. But.... I do love my new garden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous and fun This project turned out really beautiful. It took a lot more soil than I expected. It is going to be fun to watch my garden grow and enjoy the fruits of our labor. you won't be disappointed.
