Solid, high quality easy to build in under 20 minutes
I bought two for summer vegetables, the first one took 35 minutes to build but the second one under 20 minutes, EXTREMELY easy instructions and all the hole slots are pre-drilled and the wood slots are routed for easy installation, they include tools needed and extra screws and bolts. They are enormous, even though the picture looks big, once you build them they are fantastically big and look like they hold at least 5 bags of potting soil once I get to filling them, if not more. The only stage where you need to be precise is toward the end, lining up the triangular side pieces, you will need to shift it into a good common ground so that both sides can be screwed in and aligned. The final two boards, the long top boards, like the one with the VegTrug logo, needs to be tamped in with a rubber mallet as that is going into a very tight slot, but I managed with no problems. The boards were straight, dry and easy to handle. The system also comes with a black cloth liner to set inside before the soil goes in. I have attached a photo of mine, without the liner because we had rain the night before and I left the units alone. I hope this write up helps, after seeing mine, my buddy is buying two for his garden and my neighbor took pictures so not far behind. It may be slightly expensive but the savings at the grocery store for my heirloom seeds will be made up easily within the first two years.

GREAT RAISED BED
This 72" VegTrug went together very quickly with two of us working on it. I did caulk the edge where the plastic feet covers meet the legs to ensure water did not run down and into the cup as someone suggested. It took nearly 6 bags of organic potting soil to fill it as they directed on their web site. I got this as a special of the day so I saved considerable money. The VegTrug website has videos and helpful suggestions in their reviews which gave us a visual to reference before we started putting it together. One person suggested putting extra screws into it to make it more solid and I wish I had seen that as I think it would be a great addition. I also put it over a grassy area vs over the concrete near the house as people said that putting the Trug over the concrete creates a superheated micro climate which then requires more frequent watering due to the heat drying it out. I am pleased with the delivery, the purchasing process, and the Trug itself. It arrived in 2 days!!! I could not believe it.

Quality 72 IN. Elevated Garden Bed
I like this product and it will work well as an elevated garden. I like the design and the quality of this large garden bed. When putting it together, I did like the bolts but didn't like the small screws that came with this unit. I replaced all of the wood screws with much longer coated decking screws. I also used more screws than directed to insure a solid build. Once I was done, the planter was very solid and I felt more comfortable adding all of the soil needed to fill this large raised garden bed. We are very happy with the look and function of the 72 IN. VEGTRUG.
