Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by veggielover Perfect for your veggie garden!
I bought four of these and this is my third growing season with them. I love them! I wish I had gotten double and raised them higher (oh, my back!) but the exercise does me good! I rotate my crops in them...herb garden, lettuces, cukes/radishes, Swiss chard, baby carrots and squash. Will be getting more of thes boxes.
I dig the grass up from my yard for the box, lay in chicken wire (keeps certain creatures from tunnelling up into the boxes), then lay in landscaping fabric, then a good mix of soils and nutrients. You can plant prolific amounts of food in these boxes because the soil is so nutrient rich. Very pleased with these boxes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doer Disappointed
I found the newest one I purchased was priced $10 higher than the previous ones last year. (Understandable, I guess) However, this particular package contained 2 slightly WARPED boards and the boards were much rougher hewn. I DID like that they grooved slots at the posts for aligning the boards.
Overall... I LOVE raised beds and will STILL purchase with the hope that I just got a DUD this time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Reneesarah Roughing it with a raised bed
For the money I expected better quality with this raised bed. The wood was very rough and had not been smoothed out at all. Lots of opportunities to get splinters. The place where the two boards join to form a corner is somewhat fragile and could potentially break during assembly. There are decorative endcaps but they are not predrilled. I split the wood on one before I realized that it would be better to nail a starter hole in the wood before attempting to place the screw. Once I finished assembly it looked ok and does what it is supposed to do. My next raised bed is going to be a fabric container that does not involve rough wood or assembly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DonV Quite nice, better on sale
I picked these up when they were $10, and IMO that's the price they ought to be.
These are quite nice - the milling of the joints is perfect, and fit is snug, but not impossible to assemble. The caps are a nice touch.
Be sure to pick up a couple bags of soil for the fill!
Total time with turning the ground underneath, assembly, and filling with dirt was about an hour at most. My plants are loving it.
I only rate these 4 stats because of the price - just my opinion of course, but at "suggested retail" they are a tad pricey. I got them on sale and they were a good deal.
So good I bought a "spare" - looking for another corner of my yard to place it.....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rigardener Think Outside the BOX - Make rectangular beds!
I purchased 7 of these kits to create two 4' X 20' raised beds in my local community garden. See the attached photo for details. I used one "cross board" at four-foot intervals within the bed to maintain stability. I prefabbed some sections on the floor of my garage and assembled the prefabbed parts at the community garden. "Leftovers" from the seven kits included several corner posts and caps. I plan to buy appropriate-size lumber at The Home Depot and build a small raised bed at home. Needless to say, I am quite pleased with the way the community garden raised beds turned out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jany Amazing garden beds
I researched many of these raised beds and these were the best value and variety. .I have a big yard and wanted to use raised beds for most of my planting. These beds are amazing. Very easy to set up and move. A terrific bargain for the price and quality. They are sturdy and look great. I stained them to match my fence. I get a lot of compliments on them. They fit in anywhere. Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by relaxed61 This product has great design versatilties
I bought 6 of these to make a 21" x 4' x 12' raised garden. The kit is well designed for easy assembly and layout. The cedar boards were straight and solid and the dovetail joints make the frame very strong. Since I was going 21" high I did reinforce the middle of each 4' section with a 2x2x3' stake that I mounted inside the frame so as not to distract the outer appearance. This is a great product! The hardest part was adding all the soil ( more than 2 tons)!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dawn I am extremely please with this kit!
I purchased this raised bed kit for my sister who was on me to help her plant a vegetable garden for a few years now. The kit was easy to assemble with its dovetail cuts. We had it together within 10 minutes. After my brother-in-law tilled the ground for us, we loaded in the soil and planting within 20 minutes. She is estatic with her new garden. Thank you for having this product because it made planting a vegetable garden simple.
