Q:The block measures only 5.5' in height but you're supposed to use 6" lumber in it?? Pic shows it working perfectly. Doesn't make any sense unless you dig a 1/2" trench for lumber to go into ground. Is this what is done? Not mentioned anywhere.

          Good Value
          I got these to build a garden bed and they were great for that. I had hoped to use some rebar to stabilize the corners, but not all of the blocks had the holes they were supposed to. At 70, I wasn't strong enough to just hammer them in. They turned out to be not truly necessary after all. But, perhaps a bit of qualiyi control was in order? This was a curbside pickup so I wasn't able to pick the individual bricks myself.

          Only the stones
          This set only comes with the planter blocks and no lumber. It makes absolutely no sense as to how this set cost $268 when the individual planter blocks are sold for $4. I got 24 blocks at the store for around $100 and spent another $100 on wood and rebar as well as wire mesh. This still doesn’t add up to the price of this set of blocks. Do yourself a favor and get it at the store or buy them individually online.

              Great Product
              These are great and go up fast. There are so many possibilities of arrangement, just stack, stake and get on with business. I was able to put my little project together in a weekend.

              Excellent Product
              Was able to raise it to 4 blocks. Used steel rods for stability and 2 x 4 for framing. Finished with all around benches (2 x 6). Used 2 x 6 for inserts. Plans for using 2” pvc piping at both ends as swing arms for chicken wire covers.

                Great blocks to build raised bed garden
                I just finished our 4ft x 8ft x 22” raised bed vegetable garden. We started laying the corner blocks, the hardest part is getting all the blocks leveled to each other and getting them so that the bed would be square. I put 10” of small pea stone under each corner block, I used PL 5000 masonry glue as I stacked each block then i started installing the 4ft & 8ft lengths. I used 36” x 1/2” rebar through the stacks of blocks. Then we screwed in side supports inside the framing using 2x4’s, 20” high.

                    Brittle
                    I purchased about a dozen blocks to build a raised bed on a gentle slope. I found shortly after we had a heavy rain that the blocks, particularly those at the bottom, had shifted. I redid the set-up and I bought rebars but in the process of installing them, three blocks cracked with the inner tongue breaking off. We'll see if they hold up over the winter and spring freeze-thaw cycle here in Maine. I'm not buying or building anymore until I'm sure that it will make it through a Maine winter. The product description does state you can stack them 2 feet high which is 4.4 block (24 inches divided by 5.5 inches) and I only stacked three. I also added some reinforcement at the corners as you can see from the image below but that was not my original intent.
