They went together very easy. The kids at our school love them and want to do more. We bought 6 and want to get 6 more. Hope we win.

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.

This product was so easy to assemble -- no tools required except for screwing in the decorative tops. And it looks great!

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.

My biggest problem with this garden bed is that the "cedar" looks VERY rough and unfinished and doesn't have the clean polished look from the pictures AT ALL. I've also read that the wood started to disintegrate after a season of planting without the application of a special oil that costs another $50. Even though I ended up lining the inside with landscaping fabric I feel like the wood is so low quality it'll barely weather the elements. The only reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because it was extremely easy to put together and relatively cheap (instead of building my own, which is what I was thinking of doing). Overall, I would look for another option before buying another one or another piece of the series, which is a shame because the versatility of the designs is a great draw.

The students really enjoyed putting this together. They felt proud of themselves for being handy and seeing the project complete from beginning to end.

For the price it is fine. It is easy to assemble, straightforward but does require some strength to get rails into slots so i had help from my son. Also needed holes for cap screws to be drilled. Looks good. Suggest note informing that middle rails should be inserted to keep bed from bowing.
