Excellent value! I bought two several weeks ago for use at an assisted living facility to enable residents to garden without stooping or kneeling. The wood slats are rough cut white cedar, and the corner posts are smooth white cedar. This gives a slightly rustic look appropriate to a garden bench and a pleasing faint aroma of cedar. And being cedar, I expect that the bench will be reasonably rot-resistant and weatherproof, age to a nice gray color, and give years of service. The wooden boards and legs are dovetailed, so the nearly the entire thing assembles almost entirely without use of fasteners. A rubber mallet (about $6 at HD) provides just enough force to knock the boards into position. The caps on top of the posts need a hole drilled in them by the user so that they may be screwed onto the posts with the provided screws (c'mon Greenes... couldn't you provide these pre-drilled? Then the only tools for assembly would be a rubber mallet and a Phillips screwdriver. Or even better, figure out a joinery approach for the caps and get rid of the screws altogether). When assembled and filled with dirt the bench is surprisingly solid and stable. (The capacity is 6.5 cubic feet, which is a little less than 4 of the 50-quart bags of Miracle Gro potting mix once it's packed down. I suggest sticking with potting soil, as garden soil will be quite a bit heavier.) Another tip: if you're going to place the unit on grass or dirt, put four small patio blocks (about $1 each at HD) down first for the legs to sit on so they don't sink into a soft surface. These are not needed if the bench will be placed on a hard surface (patio, sidewalk, deck, etc.) All in all, I highly recommend this unit. We are giving another unit to a friend with some physical limitations so that she can continue to enjoy gardening, and will buy additional units if there is demand from residents at the assisted living facility.

Was happy with the quality of the product ...I ordered four of them, not to difficult to assemble. My only complaint was the wood trim caps on the corners were missing on one of the garden boxes.

I bought this because it was just a few dollars more than it would have cost for the lumber alone. It went together easily and it looks great!

It's a good size and easy to assemble. The only issues were the liner included was very thin and not large enough to line the whole inside. I had to replace it with a better liner. The other problem was with the front and back boards. The boards were cut uneven with gaps between them so I contacted the Greene Fence company and they promptly sent new ones that were perfect.

We have a pair of these raised beds, and this is by far the better of the two. Slightly more expensive, but worth it. Easy assembly (you need a rubber mallet-about $5 at HD) but very solid and practical. I'd buy it again.

I got this for someone to garden in wheelchair on her deck it took a bit of pounding with a rubber mallet and a block of wood the legs are made of heartwood which is more rot resistant but all of them were starting to crack and split The sides and ends are about an inch from the top and are warped. 4 squares were suppose to finish it off the tops of the legs in order to put them on you have to put a screw in them. The slats on the bottom did not fill the entire thing so I ended up removing a few and adding a few pieces of cedar fence that I had. I notched each end of the boards so the fit at the ends It came with 3 sheets of fabric that your suppose to down to keep the soil in. I am getting a few more pieces to finish of the top and keep the fabric in place along with the potting soil I am hoping this will last a few seasons
