Product Overview

Creating a bountiful garden has never been easier than with the Greenes 4 ft. x 4 ft. Dovetail Cedar Raised Garden Kit. The dovetail joints make frame assembly a breeze: Simply slide the boards by hand into the corner joints for a solid and secure garden frame. Set the frame on any level outdoor space, add soil and plants or seeds, and begin growing the garden you've always dreamed of.

  • Greenes cedar raised garden kits provide the 7 in. of depth required to grow thriving vegetables, for plants that need additional depth, increase your garden height to 14 or 21 in. by stacking two or more of these 4 x 4 kits, or see the other Greenes Fence dovetail cedar raised garden beds configurations on this site
  • No tools are required to assemble the frame, a Phillips screwdriver is required to attach the decorative top
  • Assembly is simple: Slide the first and second post over each end of the first board, and then slide the second board on top of the first one to build one 7-inch-tall side, connect the rest of the frame in minutes
  • Each corner post is routed on all 4 sides, for easy assembly and kit expansion, and each board slides easily into the grooves for a snug fit
  • Resulting frame is solid and strong enough to easily support the garden when filled with soil
  • Open-bottom garden frame may be placed on virtually any level surface, although a bottom isn't always needed, to create one where desired, simply line the garden bed with landscape fabric or a weed barrier of your choice (sold separately)
  • Kit is made from naturally insect- and rot-resistant cedar, the wood is untreated, and chemicals are not used in the manufacturing process
  • Garden kit will weather nicely over time, to keep the wood looking new, apply a stain or sealer of your choice (sold separately)
  • Get added depth by stacking multiple 4 x 4 greenes dovetail kits, assemble the first kit, leaving off the decorative tops, without the tops, you will have a quarter-inch gap between the top board and the top of the post, slide a board from the second kit to fill this space and then build the rest of the kit as you did the first, with the corner posts from the second kit sitting on top of those from the first, the kits will be stacked and solidly attached, after connecting your final kit, add the decorative tops to the top kit
  • 10 cu. ft. of soil needed to fill raised beds
  • Each 4 x 4 greenes dovetail kit holds approximately 8 to 10 cu. ft. of soil
  • Package contents: 8 boards, 4 corner posts, 4 decorative tops, 4 decorative screws, assembly instructions

Answer: 
Nope. If you want good hearty tomato plants, with lots of produce, then you'll need them deeper. Tomato plants like to have a deep root base, so 7 inches just isn't enough. I've been doing this for 30 years; they need more than 7 inches.

Answer: 
No. It depends on what you are looking for. If you are trying to keep it all natural/organic, then the roots will extend far deeper than 7 inches. I'd recommend a bed closer to 2 feet tall. You want fabric so no weeds or crab grass grow through the bottom (which will happen much faster than you think). I'd recommend a taller bed for some of your deeper rooting crops like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant. Read More

I'd recommend a taller bed for some of your deeper rooting crops like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant. Then, I would do a shorter one for the cabbages, lettuces, herbs. Unfortunately the kits don't offer the most difficult parts, the endless amount of soil sometimes needed not to mention what type is best, and also the advice and knowledge on what size to use for certain things.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 420 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raised Bed Garden Kit So quick and easy it was done and growing in an hour after bring this home. Get more than one if you have the room. This will save you money in fresh food costs. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it as edgers We decided to use it as edgers, the wood is good quality. We look forward to seeing our tomato plant grow, and the edgers really make our small garden looks neat, not to mention how easy it was to apply it. May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Needs help To make this work as a "raised" garden I needed to use concrete blocks to get it off the ground. In order to keep moles and other pests out I used a metal grate. Using it as is I would be concerned about the depth of the roots for plants as well as my ability to control fertilization and feeding. The wood is also fragile and breaks easily. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An extension to my original purchase. When I ordered my original 4'X12' set I also ordered 2 of these 4'X4' additions to raise the overall height of part of my garden. Price and quality were excellent and installation took less than 10 minutes. I couldn't be happier and I will install a few more this fall. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for small spaces! The garden was easy to assemble. The parts slipped right in and I did it myself in about 10 minutes (though i did not install the decorative tops).Some of teh boards were chpped or split and in rough shape, but nothing sanding wouldn't have fixed and I didn't bother. I think it took about 7 large bags of garden soil to fill. I planted a tomato (with cage), jalepeno (staked), ichiban eggplant, zucchini, edemame, onions, a cucumber (with trellis), basil, and an oregano plant, along with about 12 marigold plants. Plenty of room and only getting crowded because the zucchini is growing like crazy. I probably needed to do a deeper one for the tomato, but I will see how the rest of the season goes. I would definitely recommend for yards where you don't want to till soil. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased with these raised beds These raised beds turned out to be just what I wanted to turn some lawn space into garden space. I am very pleased with how they look and function to grow a kitchen garden. I did not encounter the problems others found in putting together the beds. No difficulty sliding the sides into the grooves on the corner pieces. Do be careful to line the side with the groove so that the side board is parallel to the ground. They slide right in and down. Done. Also, I had no problem with splitting boards or cracking decorative finnials. My young son and I (mom) put 2 together in under 45 minutes taking turns using a Phillips hand screwdriver. Very pleased with these raised beds! May 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No tools except a screwdriver required! Purchased for gift for my daughter's townhouse. Put together in 10 minutes and ready to fill with soil and plant. Cedar looks great and my daughter was thrilled that she didn't need to "dig" a garden. Planted same day and she loves it! June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the small garden enthusiest Put together very easily and quickly. Took about 10 minutes to put together. It took longer to add in the 10 cubic feet of dirt and plant the basil. Highly recommend. June 23, 2016
