Asked by: FRITZY
The horizontal boards are about 4 inches in width. That gives you 8 and 12 inch depth, or 7 and 11 inches of soil depth in the is okay to plant deeper rooting plants if you are planting over soil, as the roots can grow through the chicken wire (not in kit by the way!)

Should I put something down first before I put these on a concrete slab?

Asked by: techimnot
I would definitely put down weed barrier just so the sol does not drain out when you water. Ideally I would put on ground not concrete.

What is the depth of each tier?

I see that 10.5" is listed as the depth, but what about the other tier?
Asked by: Jooby
Each board is 3.5 inches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gardening Solution - Easy To Set Up I was looking into building my own raised cedar boxes this spring and came across this kit. For only a little more than the cost of materials to build my own, I saved all kinds of time setting this up and got my veggies planted all in one afternoon. I bought a couple kits and connected them to make a corner bed. **Installation tip, it's very handy to have a rubber mallet to help the slats into position as some are cut thicker than others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever dovetail design The cedar dovetailed posts are a clever design idea. They are well engineered. In reality though, your box needs to be on perfectly level ground or some of the boards will be difficult to slide in due to things getting out of square. Some of the cedar posts split easily. I love the design and versatility of these units. The value/sq ft is exceptional. I priced many boxes and got 12-4'x4' boxes for the price of 4-8 anywhere else. I think these would be much improved if the posts were actually plastic or composite. I turned the boxes over once assembled and used the post cap as a foot. This gave the boards a stop so they could not slide out of the bottom and kept things more even. If you have perfectly level site this may not be necessary but I think it could enhance the overall design stability so that when you lift these to move them for any reason, the boards don't drop out of the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PRODUCT!!! I am very much a beginner gardener and not much of a handywoman. This garden is SUPER easy to put together. It took only about 15 min. to assemble. Some of the boards were a little warped, but they still do the job! Much easier for me than trying to build one from scratch. More than one may be purchased to link them together if you want a larger garden. FYI, I filled this garden to the top with dirt & it took 21 cubic feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for the price! If you've looked at raised garden beds, you know they are ridiculously priced. It's just wood, right? The materials probably cost $20 so why do they usually cost 200-300 dollars for a kit? It's like those cat trees. They're made of wood and carpet scraps and they cost $300. What is THAT about?! This kit is as advertised and costs $79. Does the job and a breeze to put together. It's great. Don't forget to pick up some weed block fabric to put underneath it and the price of dirt and drip sprinklers if you're feeling adventurous. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product! After reading all the reviews, I had reservations about this product, but I have to tell you that it is an excellent value. The boards are really straight and smooth, construction was a snap, and my instant garden was assembled in less than 30 minutes working in the hot texas sun. I checked lumber prices before ordering and the total price is less than the cost of the individual components. Ordering online was really easy as the item was in stock, and I received an email within 2 hours informing me that my order was ready for pickup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to Assemble - Average Quality Ordered 2 of these online and a week later they were on my doorstep. This products is easy to put together. I assembled myself, took about 30 minutes per box. Overall, the quaility is average. The boards are on the thin side.. about 1/2 inch and some of them are a bit warped. Also, the wood itself is on the rough side, don't expect a nicely sanded smooth finish. To spite all that, they look good in the yard, but I don't expect them to last more than a few years. Considering the cost of other raised bed kits, this was a very good deal. It took 8 cu ft of soil to fill the shallower half and 12 for the deeper side. Also, I lined the bottom with heavy guage wire mesh and used a staple gun to attach -- keeps the critters from tunneling in and also helps stablize the shape of the bed (they were a bit flimsy and didn't stay square when moving them into place after assembly). Corner brackets on the inside of each corner would be a good retrofit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Planting Bed This is the two tier 4’ x 8’ kit. The assembled bed is attractive. It comes as a single box containing 4-foot planks. The wood is rough cut and the tongue and groove appear to have been milled with a 300 HP cheese grater, but all the tongues had enough definition to perform their intended function namely to interlock with the six posts. Assembly of the slats into the support post slots was quick and easy. The price was very affordable and probably cheaper than buying lumber having it delivered and then having me butcher a hand made frame. The package arrived intact and in the amount of time one would expect for complimentary shipping. I will buy several more of these planting beds. For planning purposes, ten bags of planting soil filled the two tiers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good value, nice design I think this is a great product for anyone wanting to try out gardening. Labor saving over the traditional sod-busting method, Cost and time saving over a build-it-youself method (which I did price out). If it holds up over time. I can add aditional units and develop a lovely & productive garden spot. I would have liked to see a thicker lumber, but the cedar is nice that's why the 4 stars. one useful tip I picked up while investigating other designs, is to line the bottom with hardware cloth to prevent moles etc from tunneling up into the goodies. Happy growing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like the look but... I paired this with some of the other Greenes fences kits. I have had this product for six months so far and the wood is starting to dry and become warped. It could be because of the dry, hot climate I live in. I do like the look and want to buy another. I will just seal the next one I buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking, good price, easy to put together The summary pretty much says it all. It seems good quality cedar, the way it fits together made sense and was easy enough (even for someone like me who doesn't use drills or power tools often) and I thought it was a good price. Time will tell how well it lasts but I'm happy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, easy to assemble , strong, sturdy,beautiful! I Love this kit. I'm 51 and disabled and I was able to put it together in about 15 min. The dove tail joints fit together easily, tight and strong. I went the next day and bought another one to add to it. The only thing I didn't realize was that 2-tier meant that one 4' section is 10" and the other is 7-1/2" high. but that was my misunderstanding. Actually, I ended up liking the 2-tier and it looks great with 2 kits together. I plan on buying more in the furure for the back yard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Doesn't Get Any Easier Than This The quality of the wood and workmanship is so-so. There were a few knot holes (which I intend to take up with the manufacturer). The milled ends were apparently pushed faster than the blades wanted to cut, as they seemed shredded almost as much as cut. Thus, sliding the ends of the boards into the corresponding slots in the posts met with some resistance at times, but nothing a few good raps with something solid couldn't overcome. That said, this is the THIRD identical set I've bought and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. Despite the imperfections, it is still far easier to put this together than to build something similar from scratch. So, while the wood quality isn't perfect, it's good enough for raised beds. BONUS: because this is a nail-less and screw-less design, there are no worries about those fasteners corroding or pulling out over time. (There are wooden caps that are to be screwed to the tops of the posts, but installing those is optional; they are strictly for aesthetics) I'm a hobbyist woodworker, too -- I could make something better for less money, but for the time involved, I chose to buy this, instead. Once it's together and in use, the minor defects disappear and there's the satisfaction of having put together a decent-looking raised bed with very little time and effort. (Which is good, because the work really begins when you start to fill it!) One more thing: if you are new to raised beds, as I was when I bought my first one, be prepared to have to buy MORE filler than you're told you'll need. When you fill it with the calculated or recommended amount of soil mix, it will look just fine. After it's been thoroughly watered a few times, though, it will settle. You might consider picking up an extra 25% right off the bat, if the full depth is important for what you're planting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Very easy to assemble. It is attractive(as you can see) and being of cedar, it discourages insects and lasts longer. I thought I needed two gardens, but realized one was enough. HomeDepot had it returned from my front door, and refunded my charges 4 days later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and fast to put together in back yard. Couldn't believe haw fast it was to put together. I have planted the vegitables I wanted to and they are growing very well and the garden bed is holding up well and not falling apart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice raised bed garden kit! This is a great raised bed garden kit - easy to get in my car, easy to assemble, and versatile for many configurations. I would really like some anchoring stakes that would maybe go in the center of the 4-way connectors, so that the sides don't bow out under the pressure of the dirt and watering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking, Easy to assemble, Expandable These beds were super easy to assemble. The posts and boards are dovetailed to slide together and stay in place. I bought 3 of these kits plus two of the 4'x4' kits thinking I would make 5 beds total. But, after opening the kits, I discovered they connect to each other! So, I had enough extra pieces to make 4 large and 3 small beds. While I didn't stack them, you easily could to make the beds as high as you like. Note that the box says "no tools needed", which is true to put the posts and boards together. But, you will need a screwdriver (I recommend a screw bit on a drill) to attach the end caps. The caps are pre-drilled and come with weather resistant deck screws, they go on quickly and easily. If you are one of the few people in the world without a screwdriver, the beds will still be functional without the caps.
