Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CivicFan It is ok, some problems
The wood was pretty rough - I knew it so it is not a big deal but there are more serious problems:
One of the wood planks on the bottom was narrower than the others. I don't think this was for drainage. There are drainage holes already.
Corners are not attached properly. I will have to put in some screws before they fall apart.
Overall, it is ok and usable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thunder Redwood Planter Box is Stunning
I purchased 3- 31 IN. X 18 IN. REDWOOD PLANTER BOXS and 4- 21 X 21 REDWOOD PLANTER BOXS A Total of 7 to put in different areas of our cottage. The cottage is green and these planters look stunning We filled the planters with soil, planted 2 mini trees in front of the garage and now waiting for the weather to get a bit warmer to start our other plantings. ~Enjoy~

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BornStar poor construction
This is a very poorly constructed, very rough hewn box with gaps between pieces that would not efficiently hold soil. Inner dimensions are significantly smaller than advertised. Had to make a lot of alterations (adding wood pieces to cover gaps, calking open joints, drilling bottom holes that were not drilled through) before it was usable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bunbury Finish too rough. Assembly not required, but repair is.
On the bright side, if you buy this planter you get some nice redwood, cut to the right sizes and seemingly fully assembled. The negatives?
1. Rough finish. I totally agree with the previous reviewer who noted the rough finish. From the photos, you might expect to get nice, milled redwood. In fact, the surfaces are quite rough, grainy and splintery, almost like the cheap wood you see in packing crates. But it is redwood and with a little sanding, you can improve the appearance signficantly.
2. Assembly. I disagree that no assembly is required. Yes, they come assembled, but they are assembled so poorly that you will need to reinforce or reattach the pieces. All of the joints seem to be held together with long thin staples. No screws, slotting, or anything solid and firm. As with the rough finish, with effort, you can solve this problem.
While the planters, in the end, can be nice, a product that needs so much re-working by purchasers does not deserve more than two or three stars at most. If I wanted to build and sand my own planter, I would have just bought some nice lumber.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Morgan Exactly what I was looking for!!
The planter box was just what I wanted. It was the perfect size for my herb garden. I keep it on the deck for easy picking and looks beautiful! I will probably buy another. There is nothing like cooking with fresh herbs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IndyLynch Really Nice
We ordered (2) planter boxes. The planter boxes are really nice and sturdy. they come with (2) pre-drilled drainage holes. We planted (3) pepper plants in one and (2) basil plants in the other. They will have plenty of space for roots and product.
One of the planter boxes; the bottom slats had a couple of 1/8" gaps between them. I put a little cardboard over the top of the gap. Works just fine.
After looking at the price of planter boxes and pots in general - these were priced appropriately (to sell).
They come completely assembled!!!! No tool or instructions (in 15 different languages) - just pull out of the box, fill with dirt and PLANT.
