  1. Philip L Haedtke

    Much better than anticipated 🙂
    I purchased two thinking I may send the unopened one back if the product was cheaply made (as some on the reviews implied). But I was surprised by the quality of the product for the price and how sturdy it is too. When you consider the cost to buy all the lumber and assuming you have all the tools needed to craft the lumber plus the hardware, these planters are a great value. Instructions were easy to follow although the estimated “20 min” assembly time is a bit silly considering the lower shelf has 56 screws by itself. Give yourself at least 45min for the first one you assemble and if you assemble a 2nd, 3rd, etc, you could get to a 20min assembly time. My time (and being tall, my low back) saver tip is once step 2 is completed, tip it on end and skip to Step 8. You can use the partially assembled unit as high surface if you don’t have a large enough workspace (low back saver). Time Saver: Once there is a J panel attached on each end of shelf, for each additional J panel you only need to locate a pilot hole on each side of the J panel and affix the panel. Once all the remaining J panels are attached by two screws then you can set the rest of the screws in pilot holes (see pic) and just move one to the next rather than aligning one screw at a time. Once all the screws are sunk, then go back to step 3 and complete the remaining instructions.Other feedback: The casters are nice but need a very smooth surface to roll well once the bed is loaded with dirt. Slight larger, knobby casters would be an improvement for uneven terrain. I created sloped sides inside the box to direct the drainage to the drain holes. Rather than painting or staining, I used an inexpensive plastic drop cloth (creating holes in the plastic where the drain holes exist) as a moisture barrier under the fabric liner to save the untreated wood as the wood will not last long with constant exposure to moist soil for more than two seasons (or so I would think).

    Easy Build & Sturdy
    The guys reviewing this planter who say this is a difficult build are hereby ordered to turn in your Man-Cards, immediately. You’ve lost that privilege. Now go sip your oat milk latte & think about your life & the choices you’ve made!Was an easy build, very sturdy & larger than expected. The raw wood leaves so many different finish ideas. I purchased this for my 80 year old mother who’s in a wheelchair. This is the perfect height & size to keep her occupied & happy. Money well spent.5 Star Product, for sure!

    Will it serve its purpose?
    Rating: 4 Stars subject to changeCredit and caveat: some of these suggestions were brought to my attention by other reviewers and deserve credit. In retrospect, I wish I had taken more time to see the images of their collapsed planter boxes. With that said, many of the following suggestions seem sound (to me), maybe excessive, and it’s too soon to tell if they will work or whether they were needed. I’m just trying to avoid the massive headache of a failed planter (collapsed) box, rotted wood panels and excessive moisture for the herbs.Images: Numerous jpgs are included. I hope these are useful (a picture is worth 1,000 words.)Preparation: Plan to use an electric screw driver, it will make assembly less difficult (remember to charge it before starting the project) Consider having an assistant, some steps will be harder, but not impossible, to complete without a second pair of hands (I’m in my late 70s and did it solo) Plan to spend at least 1 – 2 hours assembling the planter box (not 20 minutes) Consider purchasing a product that will protect the wood if you plan to use it outdoors (I purchased Seal It Green Garden Box sealer, 1 quart will cover many planter boxes, is easy to use and cleans up with soap and water)The Good: Very attractive looking once completed and sealed Good instructions…if you familiarize yourself with them beforehand Parts are well labeled including stickers on each piece of wood and each bag of hardware (screws, bolts, etc.)The Not-So Good (but not quite Bad): Some steps in the assembly are not straight forward, especially the barrel bolts. This item must be lined up properly for the two pieces to engage. Note that the slot on the barrel nut lines up with the threads on the barrel bolt (using a screw driver to hold it in place will help) The thin wrench (provided) is used to tighten casters to the legs and not any other bolts or nuts The fabric liner appears impermeable to water, I.e., water did not pass through the liner after a 6 hour test done without soil so it may not drain adequately which will over-saturate your plants, vegetables or herbs Attaching the last bolt needed to secure the lower shelf after the 14 slats have been installed (56 screws) can be a challenge if you’ve already completely tightened the first 3 bolts (leave some play in the other 3 legs until all 4 bolts are in place, then tighten)The Ugly (I hope not!): Despite a preponderance of 4 and 5 star reviews (88% combined), the real worry is the planter boxes that completely fell apart as noted in some of the 1 and 2 star reviews (6% combined). These examples would be deal breakers but I must have missed seeing them, a serious oversight If the fabric liner does not drain water your plants will become over-watered Even if water gets through the fabric liner it will not simply go to the 4 drainage holes at the base of the plantar box. It will sit on the bottom pieces, eventually rot the wood if not sealed, and leak through any openings besides the 4 drainage holesSuggestions which I hope will help but have not yet been proven to work…yet: Wood glue to strengthen the joined pieces in addition to the multiple screws Additional pieces of 1” x 3” lumber, screwed them into base of the planter to help support the many cubic feet of soil added to the planter box (these were moved closer to the edges to keep water from pooling along the length of the planter box) Corner braces attached as shown in the jpgs (again: these were moved to the sides)3/4” O.D. (outside diameter) clear vinyl tubing inserted into each drainage hole; allow some to protrude above the base then secure the tubes by using a small gauge finish nail to prevent the tube from being pulled out from below (seen in jpg) Line the inside of the entire planter box with 3 – 5 ml plastic to further protect the sealed wood; staple to the sides Secure the black fabric liner with staples as done for the plastic Cut a small opening in the plastic and the fabric at each of the 4 drainage holes; staple and duct tape to “encourage” water to exit via the 4 vinyl tubes Add an upside down strainer to keep soil out of the vinyl tubes which would defeat the purpose of the drains; secure with duct tapeAdd soil and happy growing! I used Miracle-Gro Raised Bed Soil which requires no mixing of potting mix and garden soil that has been recommended for raised beds. You can find many suggestions for making your own raised bed soil on line. After all these additions, I hope I will never submit an update which will only happen if the box falls apart. I hope the jpgs are helpful.UPDATE: March 13, 2024. RATING lowered to 3 stars. It’s been less than a year since purchase and the planter has held up well. It wasn’t moved by engaging the two lockable wheels. I applied Garden Box Sealer (Amazon purchase) and the planter developed ugly black marks on many of its surfaces. An initial sanding of the top corner squares and the top horizontal surfaces cleaned up the discoloration but sadly, the entire box including the bottom shelf slats developed the same problem. The box became an eyesore. This past week, I sanded the box, primed it with Zinsser 1-2-3 exterior primer and painted it with Benjamin Moore “low lustre” exterior paint. I should also note that my Rube Goldberg attempts to divert water into small containers placed on the lower shelf was a failure – despite the provided black liner and the addition of my own plastic liner and four (4) drain tubes through the provided holes at the planter box base, this thing leaked like a sieve.

    As described
    It’s sturdy, cute, easy to put together and move around. Was relatively easy to put together and looks just like the product description.

  5. Amazon Customer

    Awesome product was just what I needed and customer experience is top notch
    The raised Garden was easy to assemble. It took less than 30 minutes to assemble. I had missing hardware, called customer service and I received the replacement in 3 business days which was less than the expected time givenThe garden depth was adequate, it is very sturdy. A great value for your money, the material used was wood and it had no offensive smell and the color was a perfect match for my decor.Will definitely recommend

    Very nice planter box
    This is the second planter box I have bought from this company. My grandson and I put this together. I have peas planted in this planter so far. I like how sturdy these products are. Fairly easy to assemble. I like that it came with a box liner. I don’t have space for another planter box but if I did, I would definitely buy this again. I don’t plan on moving this box, however, I like that it has casters on it.

  7. TX Don

    Nice medium sized portable raised bed garden
    Little time consuming to assemble but that makes it sturdy. We like the little wheels to move it around. Took 4 bags of soil to fill, and less than a week later, we have tiny lettuce plants coming up!

  8. Robert H.

    Very very nice
    Very appealing. Nice finish (gray). All brass screws. Nice assembly brochure. Sturdy. All the pieces fit together properly.Wood is not thick, but sturdy enough.
