Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by countrygirl13 Root pouch 200 gal planter
This breathable and recyclable Root pouch planter is easy to use although I did purchase 12 bags of top soil from Home Depot to fill it and could easily use 3 or 4 more bags. I have a smaller yard and do a lot of raised bed gardening and found the perfect spot for it between a lilac bush and a hydrangea bush that are growing in one section.
After putting the top soil in it, I turned the soil twice and added Vigaro Organic lawn and garden feed from Home Depot to it and worked that through. Today, Sunday, 01 September 2013 I planted red potatoes in it. In the spring I plan on using it for sweet potatoes.
I am pleased with it so far. The color does not really matter to me as when the hydrangea and lilac are blooming the black color will be a background color adding to the many other colors in the garden.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mctanker101 Perfect diameter and height
I mixed 21 cubic feet of organic soil with 4 cubic feet of peat moss and one cubic foot of cow manure and my medium is about 1 inch from the top of the planter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Painters1953 Bulky but efficient
The overall size of the container is great and I love the circular size. I do think that even with root bases, the overall height is a little much but then one does not have to fill it entirely with planting material. I based this observation on the square foot plantiing method. Unitl spring we've set up the container to capture leaves and other mulching material which will be part of the planting base. I can't imagine this actually on a patio though. We discussed it's use in this manner and concluded that given the nature of this particular item, it would be too messy. Instead we are setting out a place in the yard with a fabric base to keep down weeds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyGardener Great product for my patio planting
This was the easiest to set up planter ever! I am using this root pouch to contain the dirt inside of my concrete patio area raised bed. It eliminates the staining on the concrete and helps raise the level of dirt I can put inside the raised bed.
I really like this combination and it has helped increase my yield significantly, which is going a long way towards making me self sufficient in growing my vegetables.
So far I have not seen any rot or deterioration, which is a definite plus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiDIY Perfect for small veggie/herb garden
The 200 gal. planter is a great size for a small garden - upright veggies and herbs can be easily reached from any position. Very easy to set up. The fact it is raised really helps with the weeds, and the breathable fabric doesn't hold excess water (we have had an abnormally wet spring, yet the plants are in good shape). I would suggest a larger size container for vine plants, so that there is enough room to keep the harvest from spilling over the sides and onto the ground.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sdgiant Good design... long term?
I love the design and strength, I'm using it for a raised bed. I spent over $100 on redwood for an 8'x4' wooden bed, so this is a great deal. The brochure actually pegs the life of this product at 5 years. That will be a lot of dirt to move in a few years, you definitely can't move it once it is full. Still, It works well. Read about drainage problems, but it's summer in California, so that isn't a problem yet...
