I bought this kit to begin my first garden this year. It only took about 20 minutes for me to assemble and the pieces were all very light. My issue with the kit was the jagged edges on a lot of the boards and posts. It is definitely necessary to put gloves on to put the bed together in order to avoid some pretty serious splinters. I appreciated that the kit is easily expanded if I want more space at another time. I just planted the garden last weekend so I have no words yet on how it holds up over a season (or several ) but so far I'm satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TeddyBear5 This raised bed is very easy to assemble. Even the caps that fit on top of the posts are predrilled.
When I opened the package, I found no directions and almost paniced. I didn't take me long to figure out that all I had to do was slide the boards into the posts. I used a hammer wrapped with a towel on a couple of boards. It went together quickly. I thought I might need a drill, but found the caps to be predrilled. So, I only needed a screwdriver to complete the job. I was planting vegetables in a square foot arrangement, so I put stakes around the perimeter to which I attached the string to divide it into square feet.. I did not want to take a chance of splitting my beautiful cedar. I don't think it detracted too much from the looks of the cedar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPinFla Natural look. & easy to assemble
I had this product together in minutes. Looks great. Natural wood that enhances the garden. I think it's an excellent design for a DIY person. I would recommend to all. I also added 12 bags of excellent soil that HD carried that had peat moss,bone meal,vermiculite etc. This above ground garden bed is set up as a 2 part 4x4. So each section held 6 bags.
This is in my back yard along fence in a townhome community. Also created a pyramid herb garden & have mint on fence. All thanks to HD.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mauwin The garden box is easy to assemble and perfect for a small garden.
My students love to garden and we found the perfect solution to growing a garden on top of an asphalt slab. The Home Depot garden box has two compartments to plant vegetables and flowers. It has a nice decor with the two slats of boards which easily slids into place to assemble. I had parents who volunteered to help build it, but I could have assembled it alone. This box would be great for an small patio or yard. It is a good price for what you get and I hope to purchase more of these boxes for my classroom and fellow teacher so more children can participate in gardening to learn about plants and what they need to grow. Many of the children do not have access to gardening at home so the garden box provide this opportunity for them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rckc Easy to install, looks good!
Mobility issues keep me from bending to work in the garden I love. We ordered two of these boxes and stacked them to make reaching easier for me. They came quickly and were relatively easy to assemble however they are extremely rough cut so watch out. We treated the wood first so that helped some. There were a few warped boards but lining the inside of the boxes with plastic will keep the soil from escaping. When put together the boxes look great and hold far more than I expected. They are allowing me to continue doing the gardening I love.

Be VERY cautious when buying this kit! We received one as a gift (purchased at Home Depot) and my husband was setting it up and low and behold, infested with termites. I uploaded a picture. Please see "Product Images" to view it. There were eggs on it as well. Be very careful to inspect yours before putting it near your home and save your receipt in case you need to return it!

We used the 4x8 version to start our garden, and the 4x4 version to build a container around a rosemary plant that had rooted in the ground from a rotting container. They were easy to put together, and have gotten positive comments from our neighbors.

We combined two units to create a T-shaped raised bed garden where we can reach all our veggies! It was super easy to put together and only took the two of us about an hour to build and set it up. We assembled the cedar frames, laid cardboard down, poured in soil, fertilized it, planted, and watered. It probably took us two hours to get the soil fertilized and get the plants into the ground. Three weeks later, all our plants are huge and ZERO weeds!! We are incredibly satisfied with this purchase! When it rains the cedar is GORGEOUS!
