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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hpwex 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katie 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelerSue Easy to assemble, good in the heat
Great planter bed frames. They actually hold more dirt than I thought. I have had mine for an entire hot AZ summer w/o problems. I might stain or weather stain the outsides just to help against our heat. Love these beds. I have 3 in different sizes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mikey good fit for what we needed
Easy to assemble, just the right size for planting a couple of vegetables. We could probably have bought the materials for less, but having everything we needed in the kit with no need for cutting and measuring was worth it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Detizo Not as advertised
The quality of the product is pretty shoddy. The dove tails are not cut well and often have left over shavings still attached to the wood. They don't fit well together and you have to trim some of them to make them fit. The top caps are not pre drilled and even the slightest amount of pressure caused them to crack in two. I even tried using a screw driver instead of a drill and they still cracked. But, it's cheap and it holds in dirt. So, I guess you get what you pay for. Doesn't look great but gets the job done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by elee BEST RAISED BED BY FAR
I have my garden in raised beds. I have bought some made from different products but this one is the best. Easy to assemble & install. Last for several years without any problems. Have bought several of these and add new ones each year to increase my growing space.
Have recommended this to others. Best price & product.
