What the reviewers said…
The Greenes Tiered Raised garden bed is easy to assemble due to the dovetailed design of the cedar panels. Everything slides together without the need for tools, except for the caps on the 6 posts that require screws or nails. The tiered design is a plus for those with smaller yards due to it’s vertical growing layout.
Is It Functional For Planting?
The different depths of the three raised bed levels, are ideal for planting a wide variety of vegetables or herbs together. The top level (21 inch depth) is great for tall or vine plants such as tomatoes and cucumbers, and a trellis can even be added to the back of the garden bed. The middle level (14 inch depth) is deep enough to plant root crops such as carrots, radishes, and onions. The lowest tier (7 inch depth), is perfect for herbs and ornamental flowers.
Keep This In Mind
The cedar boards are a bit thin, and lacking quality at times. Reviewers noted that some boards have slight cracks and can be very rough cut. This detracts somewhat from the visual appearance, but doesn’t affect the overall functionality. Soil still stays contained inside of bed’s tiers.
This Greenes raised garden bed takes a lot of soil to fill, especially the upper tiers. It takes approximately 20-25 cubic feet (about 20 bags ) to completely fill, so be prepared for a fair amount of work to get it ready before planting. The bottom of the tiers are completely open, so it might not be suitable for some decks or patios depending on what you’re looking for.
