Customer Questions & Answers

The hole for the rebar doesn't go all the way through. If I pound it through will the block break.

Asked by: Johnnysgarden
I used a 24 inch round steel stake which I found at HD next to the rebar, it has a point on one end, I place the block on the grass, put the stake in the block and then tapped the flat end of the stake with a rubber mallet. Literally took a few seconds to do.

What is the maximum span for these and can Composite lumber be used instead of wood?

Asked by: Tony
Most composite lumber requires structural wood as a framework. Depending on the height and length certain composite materials they will bend or break under the pressure and weight of the soil water and plants. Plants increase the weight significantly after growing. If you have a product in mind, I would ask the manufacturer if their product has the strength to support the dirt water and plants. I would not put regular soil in one made with composite 'wood' but would use a lighter material with some water absorbing material mixed in to reduce the weight of the planting medium. You may have to water a bit more frequently but at a minimum you must check the growing medium to see if it requires watering...check down about 2 inches fir moisture as the top will dry out much faster with wind. I might also suggest putting a wire base inside and up a few inches on the sides of the raised bed to prevent burrowing animals from enjoying your plants and vegetables. I also put landscape cloth over the metal and up the sides to make sure i didn't lose any 'soil' and that no weeds would grow from the bottom up. If your bed is deep enough that works well. If it is only one board high, you should weed the area where the raised garden bed floor will be You may also need to loosen that dirt to allow the plants' roots to go below the box walls. While I don't recommdnt landscape cloth on the bottom of shallow raised beds I recomment that you use it on the sides by stapling or tacking landscape cloth sheets on the inside before putting the soil into the raised bed. Doing that should prevent the soil from being lost from between the slats.

What means slide in a 2 ft by 6 ft?

The first bullet in the product overview stated as "Simply slide in a 2 ft by 6 ft into the side slats to create a wall or border." I guess the "2 ft by 6 ft" shall be "2 in by 6 in", and if so, that means the product's side slats are 2 inches wide and 6 inches height such that any 2 by 6 board will be able to fit in. Please confirm.

8 in. x 8 in. x 6 in. Tan Brown Planter Wall Block is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 52.

Overall a very good product. One major caveat, if the boards you are using are too wide for the product, do not pull a dummy as I did and bang the heck out of them. The result will be a broken block, I did this twice. I used cedar boards which are about 1/4 inch too wide for the blocks. I regained my composure and used a wood chisel and reduced the width about 1/4 inch, then no problem. Seems like they could modify the product just a little and make them much more usable.

I built a 12' x 18' x 3.5' raised planter box around my deck in two half days using pressure treated 2x6s, these blocks, rod iron and 1x6s as sills for the top of the boxes. Wife loves it and I couldn't have done it without these blocks.

These blocks are beautiful and so functional. they are strong but light enough that they are easy to place and move. The design is brilliant. I LOVE THEM! When I first got them I didn't realize they were corner brackets and I was stacking them. They work well that way too. Seeing the video makes me realize I can really increase the size of my raised beds with this product. I'm very pleased and excited.

They went together so easily I felt like I was playing with Lincoln Logs. I had enough delivered along with the pre cut wood to build 30 4ftx4ft 12 inch high beds. When my neighbor saw what I was doing she asked if she could come over and play. We built the first five in a couple of hours and did lunch. They were all that I was hoping for.

Corners of these blocks, 3 blocks high. The store cut 8' boards in half for us so no sawing, hammering, needed at home. We also sealed the redwood boards with Thompson Water Seal before assembling. Really is simple and attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE!!!!! My garden is in a state park, so... LOVE THESE!!!!! My garden is in a state park, so no access to electricity and I didn't want to spend the money to buy a battery operated drill, and go thru the hassle of making raised beds, even though I wanted raised beds in my garden this year. I saw these as a perfect solution. So simple to put together a raised bed, just drop the boards into the slots, and fill, job done. Also, they look nice, and my beds are easily portable, if I decide to move my plot. Great choice, for all of those reasons, and to build my 10" deep,4'x8' bed was about $35. That's more than half the price of buying a kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good This brick makes a great raised bed corner piece. I stacked two of them at each corner. I ordered this online for in-store pickup. This is the only way to shop at Home Depot! After two previous visits where no one could help me because it wasn't their department, I ordered online from inside the store on my phone. It's the only way I know to get help and I plan to do it again!!!

Expandable, sturdy and they look great! We've used them for 10 school gardens this year and I plan to create a tortoise enclosure at home using the planter wall blocks.
