Answer: 
Yes, the connecting posts have dove tail grooves on all four sides, so if you bought two kits, you could have a 4x16 foot garden, or an 8x8 foot garden, for example.

Answer: 
You could, but you defeat the purpose of being able to tend the garden without stepping into the box. I would think that you would want walk space between the units. The size is perfect for reaching into the box. Straight line might work, but I like the ability to reach into every part of the garden.

Answer: 
Yes. The corner posts have a slot routed on each side, so additional dovetail boards will just slide into place. You could make it 4 x 24 feet long by placing end to end, or 12 x 8 if placed side by side. Place them where you want them to stay, however. I do not think you could "drag" them around without boxes coming apart.

Answer: 
Regular ground cloth, but I do not line the bottom of my frames. I add a strip of ground cloth around the perimeter and have it stick inside the frame about 6 in. to prevent weeds from growing around the outside edges. I then cover the ground cloth with mulch.

Answer: 
We did not use a liner. The side boards fit together well enough that soil does not seep through, and we loosed the soil underneath the garden to about 18 inches deep so that the plants roots have plenty of loose soil to grow into. I believe tomatoes need about 24 inches of soil for their roots.

I lined the bottom with hardware cloth to prevent gophers from coming up through the bottom, but I didn't line the sides. If you want to line the sides, perhaps landscaping cloth would be a good idea. You could easily staple that to the sides.

Mel Bartholomew who promotes the "raised bed" method of gardening states that actually 6" is enough for
most plants. I like the thought of having my garden a little bit deeper, so I purchased this 10" deep one.
So I think it will be deep enough for those vegetables. I plan on planting those exact items in my garden.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 328 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good price and quality It was easy to assemble. My plants feel comfortable there. March 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Peasy It was very easy to assemble this garden bed. I appreciated the simple directions too. One of the boards was not notched to fit into the slot though, which was irritating. However, I called the company and left a message, then emailed them a photo of the faulty piece. Within days, I had a new board on my doorstep. Great customer service! I've read other reviews that warn this garden bed won't last more than a year or two before the boards bow or rot. I cannot yet speak to its longevity. May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by My first garden attempt The kit was easy to assemble. Boards were cracked and some warped. I had a top cap completely split when screwing on.. there was no primary hole created. In general I made it work but I just was not happy with the quality. As I look out my window not a single side does not have warping boards. I am disappointed. May 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not so good The boards are too thin. The sides bulged when the soil was added. It was necessary to buy re-bars to shore up the sides. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Was a good purchase These were easy to put together. Were as expected as far as quality is concerned. Time will tell as to how long they will last. I am filling them to the top with soil to have raised beds. They seem to be holding the dirt well. They are pricey as any Cedar wood is, but if they hold up, they will be well worth the price. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to assemble, beautiful product! Used two of these garden beds for a butterfly garden for the school I work for. Easy for students to assemble themselves. It also adds a nice finished look to the garden! Only thing a drill or screwdriver is needed for are the caps. May 24, 2016
