A: I believe it would work just fine, though it would depend on the size of your dog
A: Yes, I suspect it would, but it's only six inches deep so...hopefully it's a small dog or one that doesn't do much digging.
A: Small to mid size dog probably would be fine, i wonder if the sand would leak if it were not on a perfectly level surface. I use mine as a garden bed and have had no trouble with dirt leaking out at all. Love this bed!
A: Sure. Open bottom though. I have two of these, one on top of the other for a garden and since weeds also grow in it, my dog jumps right in to eat the grass so it's easy for a dog to jump into and use. Up to your training your dog to go in. My medium sized terrier mix just went in by himself.
A: That really depends on several factors. The sides are not very high at all, about 4 inches. Plus there is not a bottom, so depending on how dedicated a digger your dog is, s/he could end up digging deeper than the sand. As far as size, I think my dogs (bassets) would have a complete blast. I might have to consider doing this myself. One of my bassets likes to dig. This would give her a constructive place to do it instead of along the fence line. We live in an area with massive clay soil. So, I know she would prefer to dig in the sand. Plus, her legs are short enough I don't think she could kick sand all over the place.
A: You could pound rebar into the corners to make it stay and i would add more rebar on the outside to support it. 8 inches is really enough to grow most stuff as long as there is nothing under it.
A: Try pounding in some rebar stakes in the corners and a few stakes on the outside for stability if you wan to do that. I have found that 8 inches depth is more than ample for most veggies and i grow a variety including corn and carrots. Happy Gardening
A: You can put one on top of another but they don't interlock as such. You would have to find a way to secure them together, or else over time and being exposed to the elements the top section would alter shape and you'd have soil spilling out
A: I have the 4x4 and other than "balancing" one on top of the other, there's no way to secure them to each other without maybe rebar or stakes. You might check with Greenes Fence co. and see if there are taller corner pieces that you could use so that you could stack mulitples.
A: You would need to use lumber and some sort of hardware to affix them to your other bed so they don't slide off the top. Also,there would be a couple extra inches of length from where the side walls of the two squares meet in the middle. The ready-made corners only have slots to attach planks together into a corner, not end-to end, so you'd have to assemble the two individually and push them as close together as you can (there would be about an inch gap between the sides of the two squares)
A: Yes it would be as long as you fill with soil however I would not recommend plywood bottom as you’ll end up with all sorts of bugs, termites, etc eating the plant roots when the plywood rots. Also many types of wood contain chemicals not healthy in a garden.
A: I'm definitely not a tomato expert but I would think it would be a little shallow for tomato roots and you would also have trouble with drainage when watering. You would only have about 5 inches of depth.
A: Since it's only 8" deep, not sure it's best suited to tomatoes; especially if you put a bottom in it. I am pretty sure "Micro tomatoes" or maybe even determinate patio tomatoes may work. Tomatoes have massive root systems and like lots of room/ Why not put it on the ground and loosen a few inches of the dirt beneath it so that when you fill it with soil and put tomatoes in it, the roots would go down in the dirt you have put in but also be able to go down in the soil you loosened in the ground. Good Luck. BTW, I've had mine for 5 yrs and still in good shape!
A: My boxes are over layers of weed shield so plant roots can't go deep. There's only 4-5 inches of soil. I've done tomatoes in these but they aren't very stable. I wouldn't recommend them for tomatoes.
A: It doesn’t seem deep enough to me. I’ve only used it for lettuces and squash But make sure you put weed barrier under it. Grass and weeds easily get. Into it.
A: Maybe four inches? It's in the ground now so that's a guess.
A: The bed is 6" high.
A: 6 inches
A: It's 6 inches high. I used two of them to raise mine higher. They provide clips to connect the two levels together if you ask. Mine did really well for three years. If you put too much dirt in the top layer bulges out, but holds together. I grew tomatoes, basil and peppers in them!
A: These beds are 6 inches high. These are great little beds for the money. I have 3 of them now, the oldest one is now starting it's 4th growing season and looks as good as the day i got it. Happy Gardening!
