Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chomom Great Flower Bed
So easy to put together, and looks great. Never got a clear number of bags neede to fill with soil,compost.
I used 10 bags of compost and 8 (2 cubic yards) odd garden soil. It was the exact amount. Love the size and the look. I put it in an area that has poor soil quality and could never get anything to grow.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JobsRme easy to set up
I was excited to get this set up and ready to plant. I took out all the pieces of wood, and discovered that there was three extra of the slats. I thought well okay. Assembly instructions are printed on the box the pieces came in. It is pretty simple, You really can't go wrong. My one down side is that the groves that are mechanically done, needs to be cleaned out before sliding them into each of the posts. It just makes it easier to slide without the little wood barbs. If the wood isn't flat, it seems that the pre install would make it better to flatten them out over some hours of having some thing heavy laying on top. Mine would be much better if I had done that. The middle is bowed. It also makes sense to have a clear and clean area to set up your bed. The posts that hold the boards are shown above the boards, but I would think they would be better served if they were put into the ground to give the whole set up better stability. I think you'll see what I mean once you do one side. I guess you could do one side and end put them together and then other side and one end. It would be helpful to have two people with that, but not really needed. Total assembly time is about 20 minutes with the cleaning out of the groves.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma Rotted and warped after 2 years use
We bought many of these beds for a community garden, creating beds of various heights and shapes. We were very pleased with how easily they were assembled and how beautiful they looked. We put an outline of the space with bricks so that the cedar would not directly touch the ground. Now after two years, some of the planks have warped, letting soil leak through. We put boards in at 2 feet which we nailed the planks to. Also there is rot at the dovetailed ends of planks and the posts. We reversed the posts and replaced some planks. I think the sides that come in contact with soil should be lined with plastic. Unless Greenes comes up with a system to improve the wear on this product, I do not recommend it. Greenes is trying to work with us to remedy our complaint and concerns.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ed Not very impressed
I bought 6 garden boxes and I was not very impressed with the quality of the wood. Some boards were not straight at all and some were chipped. The kits are very easy to put together though. This was my first time ordering online from Home Depot and I was disappointed with their mistake because they only delivered 5 boxes so I had to wait over a week for them to send me another one. One of the boxes was missing the screws and they were supposed to send them to me on the second delivery but they screwed that up too. The wood color and cut of the last was kit was vastly different. Overall I don't think I'll buy from Home Depot online again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Curly Easy to assemble but flimsy
If you want to try a raised garden and want an out-of-the-box solution, as I did, then this is a good buy. The kit was easy to assemble, but the boards are very thin. The grooved ends--the thinnest part--will likely give out in a couple years, as others have noted. If you're handy, you may want to reinforce the corners to try to prolong the garden's lifespan. I wish the garden did not have a board dividing it into two 4 x 4 foot sections, but I was afraid to leave it out because it provides much needed stability. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase and am enjoying my new raised bed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by drjeff Works just fine so far
The boards are a bit thinner than I think would be ideal, but it works fine so far. Very easy to assemble. I stuffed the thing really full with dirt and it seems to be holding fine, about 6 weeks in so far.
