Very easy to have my herbs near by.
Easy to assemble and is easy to access my plants. The rollers let me move it in garage if the weather gets bad or temperature goes down too low. Living in the U.P. Of Michigan can be challenging to grow plants.

This planter seemed to have everything I wanted - a raised bed, storage shelf underneath, wheels so I could move it around my little patio. I was able to put it together easily. I followed the directions in the package about using potting mix, dolomite and fertilizer, and withing a few weeks I had a bumper crop of salad greens. The watering system works beautifully. After about 6 weeks, I came home one night to find that one of the legs had pushed down through the base and the whole planter is now tilted down towards one corner. The bottom of the planter is bulging and I can see that the other legs are at odd angles and I will have to harvest the lettuce that is left and take it down. (I had previously harvested about half of the greens.) Judging from other reviews on Home Depot only, I am far from the only one who has had this problem. The company should really fix this or take it off the market. I didn't even get one season out of it.

Cheap plastic legs
I bought this product yesterday and put it together today. One of the legs broke after I put the water, potting mix and vegetable plants in it. The one leg punched right through the plastic clips that are suppose to keep that from happening. I would have taken it back, but I already planted in it, so now instead of being on legs, it is just sitting on the bottom shelf. I do not recommend this product.

Lasted only a few weeks before it colapsed

Base collapsed after only a few weeks. Put together as directed. Plants still small. Base section with wheels buckled and wheels folded underneath. Base section just not sturdy enough to support the top box with all the weight of dirt and water. On smooth cement patio so no extra stress on wheels. Bought three. Checked and the others have stress buckles also. They are too heavy to lift off the top sections and try to use them without the legs. I'm going to lose everything I planted. This product has not been adequately tested and trialed. Great idea. Poor execution.

This garden box was easy to assemble and instructions easy to follow. We had it set up and planted within an hour. The only mishap is the inside tray cut outs didn't line up exactly for the water pipe. We made it work by packing soil around the pipe and it worked as intended.

This is a nice planter. It's made of molded plastic, so it's not that pretty, but it's easy to assemble and works great. It's set up with a water reservoir in the bottom so when you fill it the water will seep up into the soil. I'm not sure how well this function works as all we have in it so far is seed, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. At the very least the plant roots will grow through the grate above the water and get to the water that way. The instructions are simple to follow, but they want you to use potting mix (not soil), dolomite ("I'm 40% Dolomite!"), and fertilizer to set it up properly. The whole thing is lightweight, even when filled with soil, and is on casters, so if you have a hard surface it's very easy to move around. It's great for city yards and patios.

The Easy Pickers Raised Garden Grow Box was really easy to set up and is very pretty. It's sturdy and when put together holds tight. It's on wheels so you can move it wherever your plants like to be during the day or week and it has a convenient bottom shelf. You will need to gather a few items ahead of time, specifically a good potting mix, lime and fertilizer. Just follow the directions. I couldn't believe how fast and easy everything was! You can plant seedlings or seeds. I used a razor/utility knife to make the 'x' slits for the tube and plants. I can't wait to see my plants grow!

City Picker Raised Plant Bed
I followed the directions to the letter and it fell apart in a week. I had not even put plants in it yet, just the potting mix/fertilizer combination that was recommended. It seems too heavy for the legs. I can still use the box but I wanted something higher and mobile.
