Customer Questions & Answers

Can I put more than one of these together?

I have a 24 ft space on the back of my garage. Would I be able to join 3 of these together?
Asked by: ndkmk
We joined 11 of them together and did it in a pattern that still enabled us to walk around the beds without having to step into them. They work great!

Is the wood treated with anything?

Just wondering if it is just cedar, or cedar with any stain, or other wood treatments applied.

what type of lining would you use for the inside of planter box being build

Asked by: doedoe
This Cedar is probably made mostly of 'sapwood', not 'heartwood'. Its life expectancy will be short when exposed to moisture and insects, EVEN though it is Cedar. For best extended life, use a 6 mil clear or black plastic (black is easier to see damage to it = holes, cuts, etc) on the inside between the wood and the dirt, and make it fold underneath the wood to minimize contact with damp dirt. The plastic that is covered by dirt will last for many, many years, but the portion exposed to sunlight will breakdown within a year or two. What I do to make it last longer, is to put a small strip of cedar, redwood, or pine (minimum of 3" high) along the inside top edge screwed onto the main boards. This sandwiches the plastic sheet between both boards and protects it from sunlight. The dirt must cover the bottom of this strip of wood to protect the sheeting from UV rays. This strip will be the only thing that will need to be replaced every so many years. This has worked for me for many years. Raised bed panels/boards that were not protected (redwood) rotted on the inside where sapwood existed at an alarming rate, but the later ones that I protected with plastic looked new on the inside when I replace the plastic, AFTER many years of service. I had to replace the plastic because the top was not protected from UV rays, HENCE, I now install a protective layer of wood or garden edging, using either stainless steel screws or HOT Dipped Galvanized ones. I am getting ready to make some large raised beds, and this is the economical method I will use on most, but on some, I will use the method described below. Another liner that is much more durable, but more expensive, which I have also used is PVC Pond Liners and I cut them into strips to cover the whole inside and underneath of the bottom boards. Still use the strip on the top to hold the liner tight, but I am not worried about the UV deterioration or accidental damage with the gardening tools, since this liner is much thicker and stronger.

4 ft. x 8 ft. x 10.5 in. Dovetail Cedar Raised Garden Bed is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 372.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

I have had these raised beds 2 years , they rotted and had to be replaced. I thought this bed should have lasted more than two growing seasons, very disappointed. They were difficult to put together because the boards were not straight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It was great while it lasted We purchased several of these kits in Spring 2014 to assemble a raised bed vegetable garden. Assembly was easy and it looked great the first year (2014). It looked pretty ok in 2015, but now it's March 2016 and the entire thing is falling apart. The dovetail parts that inserts into the end posts have rotted away, so the sides are pulling out of the posts and spilling dirt all over my yard. We will have to tear down the entire garden and rebuild it using better materials. We had hoped that this product would last longer than 24 months, considering the cost. Now we will have to spent more time and money to replace it - very disappointing performance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed 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.
