Does the bottom of the upper block nest (or lock) onto the lower block to prevent sliding? I have sprinkler lines under the garden and don't want to drive rebar into the ground.
Asked by: RGibson
Somewhat but it has a hole down the middle you can drive a piece of rebar through to keep them lined up well. Hope this helps.

If we live on bedrock can we use this set up? Will it be stable enough without the rebar?

If we live on bedrock can we use this set up? Will it be stable enough without the rebar?
Asked by: Lizzy
Yes, but I agree with others that soil expanding or carrying a heavy load of water may cause the structure to bulge. On the corners, you could wrap duct hanging strap around corner to connect planks and secure with appropriately sized nail, screw, or fence staple. You could also use the same hardware with heavy duty safety wire, twist secure and tighten wire, and tuck ends in a fashion such that you wouldn't hit them walking past. That's as a minimum. Personally, I'd connect all ends of planking the same way. For rectangular form with multiple blocks spanning long side, I'd consider the same connection method going through soil to resist soil expansion, but would only do that for a 4' wide structure. Longer than that, the buried or otherwise strap or wire could become a pain to work with or around. I especially like the guy's idea about drilling into rock, but you need appropriately sized drill and hardened bits. Adhesive can work, but once down it's down depending on quantity used.

I haven't seen the blocks in person so maybe the answer to this question is obvious. The block is 6 inches high and a 2 X 6 is to be inserted into the block. Since a 2 X 6 is actually only 5 1/2 inches wide, won't there be a 1/2 gap at the top of the 6 inch block? And if you stack the blocks, won't that gap just get larger by 1/2 inch for each block stacked?
Asked by: Danshim
The block is 5-1/2 inches high, same as the width of a 2 x 6.

What length rebar is needed to support a 3 block stack?

What length rebar is needed to support a 3 block stack?
Asked by: Greg
If you use 24" long rebar for (3) 8" tall blocks, you will NOT have have any rebar going into the ground. If you want the rebar pounded into the ground, which I would recommend. I would add an extra 10" to the total to the keep the stack firmly in place. Take the # of blocks you want to stack, multiply this by the height of each block (8") and add how much you want to sink the rebar into the ground.

I built a 12' x 18' x 3.5' raised planter box around my deck in two half days using pressure treated 2x6s, these blocks, rod iron and 1x6s as sills for the top of the boxes. Wife loves it and I couldn't have done it without these blocks.

I have built 7 fabulous raised beds simply and much cheaper than other alternatives. They look great and will last a very long time since I used treated lumber. Treated is now a safe product and much cheaper than redwood. I wouldn't hesitate on this product - just build one at 4x4 and then add another and another. I think the 4x4 format will yield a stronger bed less likely to have any bowing of the boards.

Block design is good, but the hole in the center does not go thru in 10 of the 12 blocks. Bad concrete workmanship in casting, it is not easy to pound it out. Easier said than done. Picked these up at Home Depot and was using a 1/2" dia conduit thru the hole. Pounding of the conduit only produced a bent conduit. Will return these and pick up ones where the hole is clear all the way.

These blocks are beautiful and so functional. they are strong but light enough that they are easy to place and move. The design is brilliant. I LOVE THEM! When I first got them I didn't realize they were corner brackets and I was stacking them. They work well that way too. Seeing the video makes me realize I can really increase the size of my raised beds with this product. I'm very pleased and excited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Awesome for Terraced Garden My wife an I were undecisive between using lanscape block or wood raised bed for my back yard sloped area until I went to one of the homedepot workshops and saw this product demonstration. The homedepot at my place was able to cut the wood pieces to the size I needed. Building the base was the tough part, after that it was easier. It turned out pretty good, we loved the look.

My garden is in a state park, so no access to electricity and I didn't want to spend the money to buy a battery operated drill, and go thru the hassle of making raised beds, even though I wanted raised beds in my garden this year. I saw these as a perfect solution. So simple to put together a raised bed, just drop the boards into the slots, and fill, job done. Also, they look nice, and my beds are easily portable, if I decide to move my plot. Great choice, for all of those reasons, and to build my 10" deep,4'x8' bed was about $35. That's more than half the price of buying a kit.

They also work well with 1 inch thick boards such as 1x8 cedar fence planks. We built 2 above ground planters and they work perfect. The only additional thing you need is a 2 to 3 foot piece of re-bar for each corner to secure your planter to the ground. Very simple and effective design. One that actually works.

Obviously, they are not and so are a lot heavier. This is not a complaint; just a heads up to those of you who are like me and don't read the fine print. The blocks worked completely as advertised - they're concrete blocks after all.I now have two very nice raised beds that hopefully will yield lots of veggies this summer.
