Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Calvino Great Raised Bed
Bought this raised bed to grow vegetables and have it all set up and ready for next year. Overall really easy to put together - do wear gloves, the cedar is rough cut. Instructions are basically non-existent but not difficult to figure out (the tall posts go on the four outside corners and the 8 short posts make up the inner taller box) Use a rubber mallet to get everything into place. Overall I am really pleased with how it looks and can't wait to fill it and start growing in the spring!

Wood seemed to be still "wet" uncured. When it dried more some splitting occurred. Boards warped but otherwise was very pleased with the product

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kimrev So far, So good.
This is my 2nd purchase of the Greene's raised garden beds. For the price, they seem to be the best purchase. I don't know about the longevity of these as the wood may warp over time, but again the price is great. They look great and are fairly easy to put together. A hammer is sometimes needed to fit the boards into the posts but it is a lot easier than building from scratch. I did notice that a few of the boards were slightly shorter in length than the rest, so do a quick comparison of size before putting them into the posts. That was the reason I gave a rating of 3 on Quality. Overall...I say buy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kellijo81 Hands Down--THE BEST!
As a single female, I was a little worried about how much work it would be to build a raised garden by myself. Thankfully, this product is available because it was a BREEZE! It is good quality wood (cedar) and it went together very easily (didn't need instruction) and took less than 30 minutes. The hardest part was filling it with my neighbor's compost. I definitely recommend this product! I also like the fact that I can continue to increase the size of my garden by simply adding additional kits. I have gotten a ton of compliments on my garden so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peter Easy to put together and great customer service
This product is very easy to put together and the customer service from Greenes is excellent. I currently have almost 200 square feet of raised beds using various combinations of the Greene raised bed systems. I like the flexibility of the different units. We are creating an urban garden on a hillside and these units have been easy and fast to work with. Up to 20% of the 4 foot board, however, seem to have a bit of warping. Sometimes this is a problem and sometime not. The folks at Greenes, however, are very responsive to providing replacements upon request. In fact, I almost gave this a 5 star rating but have kept it at 4 stars because it would be better if the units didn't have any warped materials. Keep up the great work effort Greene's!!

I was disappointed in the quality of the bed. The wood was warped causing gaps in my garden bed. I would have returned it but I needed to plant ASAP.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jshphrd Very Easy to Assemble
Delivered by UPS, he even took box to backyard for me! I had this unboxed, sorted and assembled in less than 1 hour. Not bad for a 56 year old woman! Curious to find out what type of stain/oil/preservative I can put on it (that won't affect the garden contents). Unlike a couple of other posts, I had no damage to anything in transit or delivery. SO far very pleased with product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LadySLBenz84 Great Starter Raised Garden
This is a great starter "raised garden kit" for those of us that are unfortunate to not have a 'handy person' in the house =( lol Easily and quickly put together, I love the fact that you can purchase any of Greenes kits and just as easily attach/add-on to what you have when you want to. I started strawberries in one section and plan to add-on another kit next spring to accommodate their growth, plus plant a cutting flower garden. I love that I can add-on with the freedom to configure this the way I want.
HINT: Make sure you spend the money to buy a GOOD quality type "weed preventative fabric" as this is the base the garden is built on and there's no going back if you purchase a cheaper one and end up with weeds growing through killing your plants. I personally purchased Weed-X3 ft. x 100 ft. Dalen Products Roll Landscape Fabric.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappy Not great
Well I orderered three sizes of this product 4x4,4x8,4x12. Writing one review on all. Was unhappy the cedar was rough cut and actually damp in box. Some of the boards where warped in box. I had 3 caps that where crackedin half. I made myself 3 new ones stained all pieces and used anyway. Not worth the bother and time to return with postage. I will not order anyth7ng wood again online. If I can't actually see item and buy in store. Or will ship to store and open boxes before I leave. If not happy get money back right away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by novicegreenthumb Exceeds our expectations
Our Greenes raised-beds-in-a-box arrived promptly and in good condition. Assembly was very easy -- like Lincoln Logs. The only tools required are a screw driver to place the post caps and a level (optional.) They look great! Several neighbors have stopped to ask about them. The facts that they're customizable and expandable are real assets. We're looking forward to years of use.

Overall, I like it. This is my first raised garden, so I appreciated the easy-to-assemble no-tools-needed kit.
Not a tiny garden, 4' x 12', 3 sections, fits in the backyard nicely without intruding. Also, like that one section is deeper the the others - planted carrots in that section. Might add an additional section at the end of the summer, specifically for herbs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by caprd Cheap quality, not so cheap price
The garden boxes are at best a one-year product. The wood is lightweight, they are thrown together and need a lot of bracing to make them work. I was very disappointed. Next time I will ask a handyman to put together some solid wood. These will last, at best, one season.

My wife and I assembled the entire set of 3 in 30 minutes and had them planted the same day. Wood was of good quality and for the most part nice and straight, very easy to assemble. They are working very well so far and the gardens are growing.
The order came promptly and free shipping was a nice bonus.

Good garden bed, but the quality of the lumber is not as good as the picture show. The actual lumber is a little rough. Overall is good product, though you can make your own much cheaper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by a1224 easily installed without many tools
I'm so glad I purchased this product when I did. My plants that need good drainage have survived the heavy rains lately. The only difficult part was that most of the dovetail joints in the corner posts had not been cleaned out after being cut. I had to chisel the excess wood out to slide the side panels in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Diane a little disappointed
This product is made a bit on the cheap side. A few boards were pretty warped and there are significant gap problems between some of the boards. I'm not sure how long they will last. I'm wishy washy about recommending this product so I said no

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joyous54 Best DIY project I've ever done, very 'user friendly' assembly.
Good quality. Purchased 3 of the 4'x12' kits, assembly time for each was 45 +/- minutes, which included squaring up, etc. Had to 'encourage' a few of the boards by using a rubber mallet, which was expected. No major hassels of any kind. Great idea for an instant garden bed. Love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elle Simple & sturdy
Very easy to assemble and stained well. I tacked a 3 mm plastic liner to the inside and filled it up with soil and plants all in the same day. It looks great and is not bowing from outward pressure. A bit tedious to level, otherwise an outstanding value.
