Answer: 
No bottom, but rather than using plywood and drilling drainage holes, first place a good layer of clean cardboard as a biodegradable weed barrier then add chicken wire as a "bottom" if you have concerns with critters coming up from underneath. Then fill with a nice mix if soul and compost and water more often than a regular bed (the drainage is nice!). Rather short at 6" high but a good starter bed.

Answer: 
No, but you should use plywood to add one. This allows you to dictate the composition of your soil. It also keeps weeds to a minimum AND it keeps voles, moles, and gophers out! Drill holes in it for drainage purposes. - Omaha Master Gardener

A little confusing though with so much info.
I used to have a 30'x 16' garden (pre kids ('93), pre divorce '10) with every veggie organic and growing 8' on all types DIY trellses...
Now in 3rd rental and having to improvise. I have a 2-3' deep growing space along the back brick wall of the rental house,and have to avoid all plumbing and electrical lines coming from the house. So a raised bed is really the only solution.
There is a HUGE yard but the animals will eat anything and everything (home all surrounded by woods and creek). There is an old raised bed in the yard though it is full of weeds, unlevel, and the wood sides appear rotten so it's really unusable. Due to current health I'm no longer able to get out and prepare (haul dirt, till ground, build trellises, etc) nor maintain a big space.
So a raised bed is really the only solution, and multi-levels seem appropriate for the space. The back wall of this rental house is on the South side at the patio, so the area receives full sun nearly all day (until 3pm or so when shadowed by sun moving to the left side of a screened porch).
Could you possible upload pictures of your garden setup?
Thank You.

One side of the yard is strawbweeies on to while the other is three different spice plants.
I then set a system 2-high next to the first 3-high system. Similar building pattern but now the plants are reserved for perennials.
The last tier in the line is actually only 1-tier high (6") and I grow a varying selection of popular annuals in this one. So, what i've got is 1 high, 2 high, and 3 high in a line, a second set of the same is parked abut 6 foot from the first one. In between, connecting them, is a garden arborwhen I put growers and vines along with two benches facing each other. Read Less

Answer: 
I stacked two so yes you can but there are no "hooks" to keep them in place. Only the soil does that but be careful, my workers hit the corner of the bottom one after it was filled and even though they got it back, it wasn't the same so had to buy a strap to wrap around that bottom one so the sides don't pop apart. Having said that, I planted and all is fine.

I've used this system on a couple slopes in the past. Here's one trick I used. Rather than use all four sides to create a square, I broke up the kit using the slope to form a back wall while using the four straight boards to create the side and front sides.

I've used this system on a couple slopes in the past. Here's one trick I used. Rather than use all four sides to create a square, I broke up the kit using the slope to form a back wall while using the four straight boards to create the side and front sides. Let me see if I can give you a test version of what I did.
The crude picture shows the top of the slope above the growing kit. The left diagram shows the use of all 4 sides of the wood in use; this is good for a low slop. For a higher slope I've used the actual slope to create a dirt back wall. In a way, it became a terraced look by having the 4 pieces of wood now create two side and then a front that is two sides wide. In one project, I bought three of these raised beds, set them into the slope -- reserving what would normally be the backside wood -- and then built it so that I had a single wide raised bed that was 4 foot deep -- going into the slope -- and 12 feet wide.
Of course, it depends on the slant of the slope, if it is sharp then you may find this method a good way to create a quasi-terrace look. If it is a low slope then you can use the full 4-sided kit and simply use some of the dirt inside the square to level it out so that you don't lose any good topsoil. Read Less

Answer: 
A gentle slope should be fine, but more than a few degrees of slope may result in slippage due to the weight of the soil/mulch inside the planter. If your slope is more than a few degrees I recommend using durable anchor stakes with this or any other raised bed.

The four walls are not flexible and they make a perfect square box garden. If the sloped area can ensure that the garden box is leveled , then yes. But if some sides are lower than others, there will be a gap and soil will seep out.

It depends on what you want to plant. It's good sized. I'm doing root veggies, such as carrots and onions and radishes. And should still have room for a few plants . If you're thinking tomato plants, they get to big. Better to use large pots if you don't have much space.

I've used these raised beds for a number of plantings over the years. A popular approach is the "square foot" spacing which divides the planting bed into individual square foot sections. Plant seeds or seedlings of one variety in each square. Plant taller plants, such as tomatoes or pole beans, on the north side of the bed and short plants like lettuce on the south side of the bed.

I've used these raised beds for a number of plantings over the years. A popular approach is the "square foot" spacing which divides the planting bed into individual square foot sections. Plant seeds or seedlings of one variety in each square. Plant taller plants, such as tomatoes or pole beans, on the north side of the bed and short plants like lettuce on the south side of the bed.
Small plants such as onions, celery, etc., can be planted close together with a minimal distance between the rows. Carrots, as an example, only require about 2 inches between plants. If you use the space with a well-planned growth matrix then you'll increase the chances of maximum growth.
Using a tomato for our example you could see that each plant needs at least 18-36 inches between plants (depending on the variety) and then 24-48 inches between rows. Since you're not using rows, in the traditional method, you can ignore the row requirements. What this means is that you'd likely get 1 plant in each square foot spot in the raised garden. Just remember that when you try to push too many plants into one sport you'll stunt the growth and ultimately the production of any fruit or vegetable you are growing.
One trick to get maximum output is to consider which plants grow together well. Beans, corn, and squash work together very well, with each bringing something beneficial to the others. This works well when considering space. You can plant something like lettuce relatively close to peppers. Do a search for "compatible plants" or "which plants grow together well" to see more suggestions.
Take a look at the spacing charts/suggestions online. Here's one I've used in the past: http://home.howstuffworks.com/vegetable-spacing-guide.htm.
Also, look at the major seed companies as well as with the products you'll find at The Home Depot. In fact, there have also been classes at my local store where planting and using raised beds have been covered. That's a good way to get lots of information in one spot. Read Less

Depends on if you use just one planter or not. One planter you can only put shallow root veggies, like letuce and kale and raddish and pepper plants maybe. You can make maybe 6 rows if you plant what I just listed. Maybe 8 or 9 pepper plants in a row or even more, just sprinkle a row of lettuce seeds and same for kale and raddish. If you do a salad garden you can plant a lot. But to plant broccoli or cauliflower or eggplant or tomatoes or cucumbers, you need double depth.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 430 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Composite material is cheap and funtional I love my Greenland gardener raised bed kits. I also ordered directly from the seller because I needed to customize my kits with 3way posts and they send me clips to stack the boards making a 12" instead of 6". They have an amazing customer service but home depot has the best prices. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vegetable Gardening Made Easy I'm a gardener, it's my favorite thing in the summer. When purchasing our new home I needed something easy and that looked nice - this did both. I purchased two kits and was able to add another 42 inches to the length by eliminating the 4th side on each and expanding the middle. They are lightweight - yet solid and look really nice. It took 18 bags of Topsoil/peat/manure to fill. The only reason I went 4/5 stars - they would be perfect if they included stakes. It was an easy side purchase - but for the money it was spot on. Will probably purchase 2 more next year! May 10, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by poor craftsmanship, cheap material The material is some what particle board, compressed saw dust coated in wax. The corner brackets are terribly machined, do not line up and if the bed is not on a completely flat surface, sides will not stay even. I put tiny nails to have corners stay flush, cracks the weak wood. If the soil is heavy, the middle will start to bow out, just look at some of other reviewers pictures. I flipped the wood, have the lines facing outward. Looks nicer. the material looks so cheap, i don't know how long it will hold. Next time, getting some wood and nailing them together. Made in the USA! yay April 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Two kits stacked This raised garden kit was simple to assemble. I called Greenland Gardener, (http://www.greenlandgardener.com/ their phone number is at the bottom of the page) to order the clips to stack the kits two high, and their customer service was friendly and fast. The clips are free and slide onto the boards. I was able to set up my entire garden in one afternoon: laying down weed barrier, assembling the garden bed, filling with soil, and planting the veggies and flowers. No drilling or nails needed. The side boards slide into the corner brackets. I will purchase more Greenland gardener kits to expand my garden next year. This is my favorite garden product I've ever purchased, I feel I got more than my money's worth just in the ease of assembly. The fact that it is Eco-friendly and won't rot are added bonuses. Update: After one month I am still happy with my purchase and the quality of the product. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best way for townhouse gardening Economical, good looking and quick and easy assembly. The stacking hooks did not come in the boxes but after contacting the company they were delivered in days. I live in a small townhouse and two double stacked 4x4 beds fit perfect. Can't wait to get gardening. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super simple to assemble! These beds are great! I do wish they were a few inches deeper, but overall they definitely work for us. Great for amateur gardeners who aren't skilled at carpentry- you literally just slide the corners onto the planks, lay down some weed barrier, and you are done in 2 minutes. We installed two over the weekend and plan to install a third soon. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase! Product was much sturdier than I had anticipated. Assembled without tools, recycled materials, looks good. I stacked mine on top of each other, put down weed barrier, and filled them with Mel's mix. I only wish that they were four foot by four foot. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 42x42 Raised Garden Bed Kit Purchased two and was not sure what to expect. Product is well built and is together in a matter of minutes. My garden was up and planted in 20 minutes! Product is easy to use and I recommend it highly. Used the roll weed barrier first, set right on the ground with no prep work needed. Both gardens are growing beautifully here in Florida !! March 15, 2016
