Product Overview

Grow all your favorite herbs, plants, and vegetables with Greenes 2 ft. x 8 ft. x 7 in. Cedar Raised Garden Bed. The bed is made out of chemical free and naturally rot resistant North American cedar. It assembles without tools using the time tested and proven Greenes Fence Company dovetail design: simply slide the boards into the corner posts to form the frame, attach the caps, and then add soil, plants, and sunshine to start growing the garden of your dreams.
  • GREENES ORIGINAL RAISED GARDEN BED: Greenes Fence Original line of cedar raised garden beds allows you to create an open-bottom frame to support your garden. Raised garden beds give your plants the room they need to grow in the location of your choice. Our cedar frame is made in the USA and left untreated, which means it is organic and safe to grow vegetables, herbs, and fruits in.
  • ORIGINAL LINE: With unsanded boards that are thicker than our Value line but thinner than our Premium Line, our Original raised garden beds are an exceptional choice for all your growing needs.
  • EASY TO SET UP: Greenes Fence raised garden beds use dovetail interlocking joints, which makes assembly a breeze. Each board slides into the corner posts without tools to form a secure open-bottom garden frame. Every corner post is routed on all four sides for easy assembly and expansion. The decorative tops can be added to each post using a screwdriver.
  • STACK AND EXPAND: Our Original line of garden beds can be connected or stacked with other Original beds and add-on parts to create the grand garden of your dreams.
  • LONGEVITY: Cedar is resistant to rot and insects, making it the perfect choice for your garden. Left organic, the wood will weather nicely to a silver-gray color over time. To preserve the wood apply a seal or stain of your choice.
  • SPECIFICATIONS: Each board is 11/16 inch thick and 3.5 inches in height. The routed corner posts are 2.5 inches square and come with 3.5-inch-square decorative tops.
  • 10 cu. ft. of soil needed to fill raised bed

is 7 inches of soil deep enough to plant tomato plants?

Asked by Jan May 13, 2015
10
Answers

No, I plant tomatoes about a foot deep here in New England. When I lived in a 10 month frost free environment, 18" deep. Tomatoes will grow in 7" of soil. You will not, however, get 7 to 9 foot plants that produce over 50 pounds of tomatoes.

Yes, all of those things are included. It has enough side boards to even subdivide in the middle. Boards are dovetail grooved to fit into each post.

How long raised garden bed will last?

Asked by Candee April 13, 2017
9
Answers

I live in Upstate NY. I live on a hill and our winters are brutal. I bought mine in August 2012. Mine was great until over this winter. All the boards rotted at the same time so I am just buying my 2nd set (March 2019) so mine lasted 6-1/2 years. I think a lot of it had to do with ants. I could only spray with something that was nontoxic to plants & dog friendly. This set I plan to spray entirely with a sealer & will spray every subsequent year with a sealer on exposed wood. But for the price I am happy with how long it lasted.

How much topsoil will i need to fill?

Asked by Diana April 28, 2020
9
Answers

I used 25 cubic feet. Could use a little less if not to the top.

What should I put under this to prevent the poor quality soil, weeds and bugs from the ground below from influencing it?

Asked by persy April 22, 2018

Answers

You could use landscape fabric made for this purpose, or several layers of newspaper. If you use newspaper be sure there are no colored sections because the colored ink in the newsprint will prevent your plans from growing.

How much dirt should I purchase to fill the bed?

Asked by Micah March 15, 2019
7
Answers

I found the dirt settles a bit in that upper tier, and was glad I bought 20 cubic feet vs the 19 that's recommended. I'll use the excess to top it off before planting my veggies, and fill some other planters.

If I purchase 2, can I stack them to make it 21 inches high? Do the decorative posts go that high?

Asked by Nina July 8, 2017

Answers

I am reading mixed reviews too. These better be stack-able because I ordered 6 of them to be stacked together. The videos shows you can and don't need anything extra than what comes with the kits.

I purchased 2 of these and couldn't be happier. They were as easy to assemble as described. They made a beautiful raised bed around a tree in my front lawn at my cottage. I'll be buying more to create the gardens surrounding my deck.

Easy to assemble, exactly what i was looking for. Fits enough vegetables for my needs. Tall enough to remove any weeds that might sneak in without hurting my back. Great for keeping my dog from running through my garden!

This Greene’s fence was pretty easy to put together. We did have to sand some of the dove-tailed corners as they we’re pretty tough and wouldn’t slide together easily. They were easy to sand and then five-tailed nicely. They are great for making a controlled raised bed

We put the bed together this past week and it assembled easily. I am not convinced it will last more than a year or two because the wood is thin. Some of the dove joints were splintered and I feel like they will break fairly soon. Was it worth the price? I am going to say it was because I needed to go from traditional row gardening to raised bed gardening rather quickly and it was what was available. It is cute and I am going to enjoy it for as long as it lasts.
