Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OrganicinClovis Really cool product
These are huge for a container. Excellent for greenhouse use to cover empty floorspace or small yards. Great for vegetables. Use a moisture retentive potting soil and you will fair better because of the pourous nature of the container. Excellent drainage. This would produce a couple bushels of potatoes in each bag. I am using to overwinter tomatoes in the greenhouse. I may try potatoes in one bag. Haven't decided yet. Would make an excellent herb garden that can be moved. Takes 2 peopls to move it though if soil is in it. Love this product! I will definitely buy more. Beats plastic pots all over the place or concrete beds that leak water around the sides.

This fabric raised bed is an innovative and unique solution to vegetable gardening. I'm a novice gardener at best. Getting a garden started is time consuming and pricey. An in ground or raised bed requires wood, a tiller, and lots of work turning over soil and pulling out grass that never really goes away--even with the best weed control fabric. This one product solves many of those issues. First off, you just unroll the bed and fill it with dirt. A mixture of potting and topsoil works fine. Then you plant. The fabric does a wonderful job of keeping the soil well drained at an even temperature. Since it is not in the ground weeds are minimal. You will be amazed at how easy it is to use and the quality of the product seems to be high enough of that you will get several seasons of use out of it.
That being said, you'll want to consider the following:
The amount of dirt needed to fill the bed is considerable--depending on size--information is pretty easy to find with a quick web search.
It's functional but not necessarily attractive.
Be careful when weed whacking---I put mine on top of large cardboard boxes so I wouldn't have to trim close to it.
At the end of the season, you have to decide how to handle the soil.

If these are mini garden beds, I wonder how the regular garden beds are. These are huge! I didn't expect them to be so big but they are wonderful for planting vegetables where you can contain them. I like the black color because it doesn't stand out. These are made of fabric, like a very thick felt, with handles. You still need 2 or 3 people to carry the beds if filled with dirt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ih82spd Great option
These garden beds are huge. They are surprisingly very sturdy and have held up incredibly well. I was concerned at first that it would be flimsy because the sides are soft but once the soil is in it, it holds up really well. Make sure you have them in the spot that you want, though. I wouldn't recommend trying move it after it is full, though. I would definitely recommend these for easy gardening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MushroomHunter Lovin' these raised beds with handles!
I get these every chance I can. The 65 gallon planter is perfect for growing a bevy of carrots, celery and beets (one veggie in each planter) I fill them with a pro mix soil and the root veggies are happy in the soft roomy soil. They maintain moisture very nicely and I usually only have to water if it's been hot and dry for a couple of weeks. These have convenient handles but once full, they are hard to move, so think about where you want to place them before planting in them.
I am such a "gardening geek" that I have turned a spare bedroom into a winter greenhouse and I can have lettuce, carrots, beets, cukes and beans all winter long using these planters!
These mini raised bed planters are made of a heavy felt like material and should provide many seasons of successful growing without the hassle of building raised beds from other materials. Plus, they actually blend in - they are not an eyesore, and people actually stop to look at my gardens because they are so unique.
These can be easily emptied, hosed off, dried, and folded away neatly for next year's gardening.
I also do a lot of vertical gardening. The 150 gallon planters are perfect for small, medium or large willow trellises! The 65 gallon planter is about 24"W x 18"H. May not sound substantial on paper, but in real life you'll be amazed!
Buy these with confidence! Thanks HD!
