This is a very nice, well constructed plant stand!!This is a nice sized raised planter. It is big enough for potted herbs or you can fill it with dirt and plant vegetables or flowers in it. The wood is very nice clean fir and it is fairly easy to assemble. I predrilled the screw holes with 3/32″ bit to prevent splitting. I sealed the wood and painted it with a good latex exterior paint to prevent the wood from decaying. You can’t go wrong with this planter. I plan to buy at least one more. I highly recommend it.

Well buildWe are older (78), once painted with waterproof material inside and the outside painted with a primer/paint all in one, we will be good to go. Husband put together the first one and is enthusiastic.Personally, I like it so much that I order one more, to be used inside, and function as a container for pillows in the living room.
Needs to be water proofedI’m a 72 year old female & put this together without help. So it isn’t difficult. I gave these beds a 4 star rating because they are constructed of pine & not cedar. The bottom wood slat shelves DO NOT come with the kit (see my photo). I added them for more storage & extra containers. Since the beds are pine & will not hold up to the weather I used a good quality exterior paint (2coats) & used a clear coat of Flex Seal spray on the interior & exterior hoping to waterproof them even more. Only time will tell if my efforts will stand up to the elements. I would buy these again for the price. I would have paid more if they had been cedar because I put more money into them with the paint & Flex Seal.
Great Raised Planter for the price, if you add a little engineering to final productI bought these raised planters to grow vegetables, etc. I wanted them near the house, and raised up to limit having to kneel down to manage plantings. I noticed, after assembling the first one, that even with tightening all screws, it felt a little unsteady (before adding any soil, etc). I decided to beef up the planters by doing the following: 1) Add a waterproofing sealant to the inside walls. 2) Paint the inside and outside and underside with leftover Tex-Cote exterior elastomeric paint to reduce weathering and water damage over time. 3) I added 2 “L” brackets to each leg to mount each leg to the side walls (long and short sides) to add extra strength. 4) I added weed control fabric lining to the insides to reduce soil loss over time and to reduce soil slipping through the holes and slot on bottom boards and messing up the pavers beneath. Adding the L brackets made the whole unit stop shaking and wobbling, and adding the strong paint added that extra sealing and acted somewhat like an extra glue to the structure. I like the way they look, and will have to see how they last through the seasons, although, in southern California, our variations in seasons are minimal and the weather is relatively Mediterranean mild compared to other geographical regions. One unit came with a cracked bottom “D” board. I emailed the company. Within a day they replied and, since they said the “D” board as a separate piece was out of stock, they mailed me a complete additional raised bed kit and did not require me returning the one with the broken piece. It arrived within about 4 days of me emailing about the problem. So, I got 4 raised beds for the price of 3 (I repaired the broken piece). Based on their fast response and very generous solution, I give this company 5 stars out of 5 for after sale service. I think the additions I made to the original product will lead to several additional years of use. The product itself is a great buy for the money–all the pieces fit together perfectly, all hardware was included in all kits with no missing parts, and the directions were easy to follow. It took me, by myself, about 45 minutes for the first one assembled, and then, about 25 minutes for the remaining ones, once I knew what I was doing. It would take an additional hour or more if you were to do all the extra things I did (waterproofing, L bracketing, painting, and cutting out fabric/staple gunning to inside) for each unit. So, I paid about $106 (with tax in that price) for each unit. I had to get small 1″ L brackets (8 needed per unit) for about $6, and the paint was left over from TexCoting my house, but if you go out and buy a high quality elastomeric paint, it will be between 50-80/gallon, but I suppose you could go with a cheaper paint.

Versatile Senior GardeningThe wife and I are in our 70s in East Texas. We love to garden, but frankly all the bending down is a pain. (or an ibuprofen!). We have a greenhouse with lots of bench space, but frankly, in these parts you simply can’t move enough air to raise anything but an occasional desert chili in the greenhouse.We picked up a couple of these – they went together easily. Just remember for each end, there’s a A, an M and a C piece. The first one was 45-minutes to assemble. Second one was done in 25 min flat. Took more time to get rid of packing than assembly, seems like.One thing they don’t mention in the instructions: If you get too overly worked up and really COMPRESS the side braces (there are three on the bottom) then the bottom wood pieces won’t go in easily. A dead-blow hammer for a little “convincing” might be needed.That said, on the second one where I wasn’t going for aircraft tightened on sides, the bottom pieces dropped in just right snug.Terms of finish? Yes, smells like a cedar variety of some kind. Small boards that have been glue-lammed and machined. Very good use of four furniture toggle bolts to hold things together while you put the rest of the screws in the side pieces.You WILL want a #2 Phillips head in an impact driver (might be a much longer process without that).I know, I know…cedar shouldn’t need a finish, but tomorrow I’ll put a coat of Penofin on everything (great penetrating oil finish. Read its reviews for outdoor. Sure, I’ve used Cetol for a finish, but its more work than a penetrating oil.We figure to put 2-4 inches of humus in the bottom and starting soil on top of that. Drain holes are pre-drilled, so some broken flower pot pieces over them should be just the ticket.Had good experience with Yahee Tech so far and hope they do more in the way of outdoor products.Oh – the height on these is a perfect balance between sitting in a chair doing weeding and being able to do things while standing.Well done.Be nice if bigger, thicker lumber, and such. But that’d double the price…so balance in all things.Enjoy.(We will be putting these next to the house with deer screening around it! 2X2 wire and 6-foot T posts. Lettuces, winter, deer? Following me?)
I would not buy this again – fit together poorly; screws corroded through in <3 yearsAs others also experienced, the panels I received did not fit together properly.After three years of use, the tongue-and groove wooden tabs are rotting through, and failing. Also, the majority of the screws provided have corroded and snapped at load points.I consider the kit I purchased to be just “delayed garbage.”Yeah, it should be a 1star but who reads those?
Help in assembleHaving done five of these raised gardens I have some pointers to help with assembles. If you are using a drill or screw gun to aid in the bolts be careful as to not over tighten them as the wood could split. While this product is obviously machine cut it is wood so an occasionally you may have to “persuade” pieces to go together. I would add a rubber mallet to your assemble list. It is often but can happen. The toughest parts are the four blind bolts per box. These are machine screws so I recommend NOT using your screw gun but rather a screw driver. If the bolt does not line up precisely with the blind bolt you will mess up the threads. As to the blind nut, it must fit into the hole almost a 1/8” down. Any less than that and the screw will no thread into it. There were wooden bits in the holes on mine so I used an appropriate drill bit to clean out the blind nut end and then insured line up by using the bit on the threaded side. I am pleased to the finished product. I hope my message is of help.

Very nice quality and easy to assemble!I received this in less than a week and it came well packaged and organized. The individual pieces were labeled with sticker to make assembly quick and easy. All that is required to assemble this is a phillips screwdriver but a drill with driver and a helper make it go very quick. I bought a package of two and assembly of the first took about 15 minutes – five minutes of which was due to a hole not aligning exactly so bolt did not connect to its nut. I used a wood file to widen the hole enough for the bolt to align and assembly otherwise was uneventful. The second garden bed was assembled in under 10 minutes with no issues. The bottoms are loose fit hardwood with a drain hole in the center of each board. The garden beds appear to be very solid and sturdy. I highly recommend these ones!
Simple, sturdy, attractiveAssembly is pretty straight forward. Choosing correct leg placement is a little tricky. The bottom panels look like they will leave large gaps in the floor, but it was fully covered after final assembly. Each floor panel has a 1″ round drain hole. If you use a bit of gravel in the bottom you don’t need a liner.TIP I filled it to within 1 1/2″ of the Rim with one 11/2 cu ft bag of garden soil, and two 11/2 cu ft bags of raised bed soil.The way it’s built, I can easily add a framed net to keep out pests, and I LOVE that I don’t have to get down on my knees in the dirt to tend to.I suspect I’ll be buying a few more of these.
