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.

this is a good product for the price. I bought another one two summers ago and it's holding up well and looks nice. I just brought bought the second so they can have the same look and be placed side-by-side. Probably not as stable as your own to buy for construction but it's fast easy and affordable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by craftyl8t slats were rough instead of smooth
The bed was easy to put together, however the slats were rough and has some pieces of wood sticking out. They should have been planed and smooth.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dan Best thing I ever did for my garden
Switching to raised beds was the best thing that I ever did for my garden. And using these cedar raised beds from Greens sold by Home Depot was a no brainier, they were so easy to assemble. And now my garden is so much easier to take care of and it looks so neat and tidy!
