Description

The Lifetime Raised Garden Bed Kit contains an Early Start clear vinyl plastic frost cover and two 4x4 garden boxes that can be used separately or stacked for an extra-deep bed. It is designed with 8 easy-to-assemble interlocking panels of polyethylene plastic with rust-resistant zinc-coated screws. It won't rot or attract insects like raised garden beds made out of timber.

The interlocking panels create the sidewalls and a weed barrier (not included) creates the bottom of this raised garden box. This prevents weeds and underground pests from invading your garden. With raised beds you can easily customize the soil to your plants, so you won't be at the mercy of the natural soil conditions in your area. Because the soil isn't compacted from being walked upon, a raised garden bed doesn't require tilling and provides more efficient drainage.

Plant placement is done differently in a raised garden box, and this allows you to grow five times as many crops as traditional gardening because it uses 20% of the space of single-row gardens. You'll also appreciate that the interlocking panels give you the option to disassemble and relocate your garden bed if you move or simply want to change your landscaping design. *The plastic garden bed panels contain no BPA.

The Lifetime Raised Garden Bed Kit includes an informative Raised Bed Gardening Guide with helpful advice, tips, and tricks on plant spacing and watering techniques.

Note:You will need a Weed Barrier to create the bottom of your Garden Bed, and 16 cubic ft of Soil Mix. Soil Mix should be three equal parts of vermiculite to retain moisture, peat moss to make the soil light and loose for drainage and proper water retention, and compost to provide the nutrients your plants need to thrive.

Assembled in the USA with US and imported parts.

Raised Garden Kit (2 beds, 1 enclosure) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent raised beds I have had these raised garden beds for 2 seasons. I purchased 4 of them. They have lasted through extreme heat, rains, Ice, snow, wind and even large branches from trees falling on them. They haven't been damaged or warped in any way. I expect to get years out of these which makes me happy because I see my neighbors wooden beds rot and fall apart after one season. Its better to buy a quality product and have it longer than not. Very pleased with these. The covers are convenient going into fall in zone 7b where frost is inevitable in October. Keeps my spinach and kale lasting a month longer than without it. i also have the screen covers with them which helps keep most of the bugs out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cover Does Not Fit As Pictured The box is easy to set up, and appears to be durable. The cover appears to made of good quality, but does not fit as shown in the advertising photo. It does not fit down to the top of the box, leaving about a 2.5 to 3 inch gap all around. Otherwise, I like the product and the quality of the cover. The suggestion to use the stakes over the box and into the ground, although a good idea, does not work as the cover is simply not wide enough to fit that way. I used the cover anyway, although undersized, and so far my seedlings germinated. It would be nice if a cover for each box would be included (2). The concern I have is the opening all around will permit rodents, including squirrels to get into the box. A question I have is: Does the cover if ordered alone come with the box clips and velcro fastener?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best raised beds ever! I purchased a Lifetime raised bed kit 4 years ago and they look as good today as the day I bought them. They have held up well and were very easy for me to assemble. My kit came with a tent to extend the season - it wasn't the easiest to put on but I did figure it out and was able to enjoy fresh produce well into October. Since I have more time for gardening now, I plan on using it in the Spring this year to get a head start on the growing season too. If anyone is interested in doing raised bed gardening I would highly recommend Lifetime raised beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with Raised Garden Kit This is our third year using the Lifetime Raised Bed Garden. We assembled ours stacked so we don't have to bend over quite so far to tend our veggies. (We are in our 70's and bending isn't as easy as it used to be)They were easy to assemble, everything fits together very nicely. We used weed block fabric underneath and used Square Foot Gardening Book's recipe for making our soil blend. Plants have grown very well, and the raised beds have held up perfectly with no issues. The clear cover enclosure seems to get the seeds sprouting and growing quickly (greenhouse effect). We have left the enclosure supports in place without the cover to give a little extra support to bush peas and other tall plants. Transplanting, weeding and harvesting are easy because we can reach all areas without stepping / walking in the garden which would compact the soil. Can't say enough good comments about these Raised Garden Kits. We plan on adding another one just for strawberries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Setup, Won't Rot, Easy to Move I received this as a gift from my parents about six or seven years ago and we have really enjoyed using it over the years. When we moved it was really easy to break it down and bring it with us. I have also moved it a couple times in our current yard and it is easy to pull apart and re-assemble in a new spot. Unlike wood it won't rot and the plastic is still in really good shape after all these years. It snaps together in about 1 minute. I have noticed spiders tend to make little homes in the indentations inside the box that are above the soil line. Hopefully, they are eating the bugs that want to eat my plants. This is a great garden box and it is gonna be around for a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love that they are portable We have had these for a couple years now. The first year we put them along our back fence line. Last year I moved them to the side of the house to see if it made a difference in how my plants grew. It did! I can take these down at the end in fall and put them in the garage for storage during winter. They go together easily and if you lose the corner clips like I did you can call customer service and they will send them to you for cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Garden Box I bought two of these 4ft x 4ft boxes to replace done wood ones I'd made, but had started rotting.These are great because they are very easy to put together and unlike wood, won't rot. I've had my boxes for 3 years now and just replenish the soil each spring, and each year I have an excellent harvest. I often plant tomatoes, jalapeños, garlic, cilantro, and cucumbers in these boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would recommend to anyone Several years neglect by a previous owner and a deep-rooted laziness on my part, coupled with the desire to do a little home gardening, led me to purchase this Raised Garden Kit at a local CostCo. It was easy to assemble, and built better than I thought it would be. All the parts fit flawlessly, even the Early Start Enclosure. I followed most fo the directions, where needed, but it isn't exactly the most complicated of construction jobs. I've assembled plenty of particle board furniture in my time, and this was far easier on all accounts. So far this season, the beds are holding their own against the elements, and my peppers are doing very well. At least the ones under the Enclosure. I would really like to see a second enclosure included in the kit, or at the very least, available for purchase. The difference between the 2 beds is dramatic. The tabs on the zipper pulls have come off on several occassions, but I blame my meat-hands and gardening with a beer in one hand for the carelessness, not the product. Raised bed gardening really is an easy way for someone with little to no experience who wants to give growing stuff at home a try, and this kit jumpstarts the whole thing. Pick up some weed barrier, a few bags of quality garden dirt, and get to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I'm a beginning gardener and this raised bed kit makes it easy. It wasn't hard to assemble and seems like it will hold up well. My tomatoes and peppers are doing great. I can't comment on the frost cover as I haven't used it. Here in FL, we don't have much need for this. I would love to buy another one of these gardening kits. Lifetime, can you sell the two bed frames without the frost cover?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive & super-easy to use I bought 2 of these raised beds last year for my first attempt at raised-bed gardening. I love them! Very easy to put together, lightweight, and attractive. They look just as good now as they did when first put together last year. They made such an impression that I ended up buying 2 more this year to expand my garden further!

Does the cover open open on more than one side, like front and back? Also, can they be stacked more than two high?

Asked by: Mark S
The frost cover only has an opening on one side of the cover. Also in regards to stacking the garden beds, the highest that they will stack is two high.

Do you guys have any plans for different dimensions?... for example I would love a 4x1 or 4x2. I already have 8 4x4 (stacked twice) in my backyard and would love to have something 'thinner' for a long row to the side of the fence.

Asked by: Shahzad Ansari
Currently we do not have any plans for a smaller size of garden bed. We do appreciate your feedback regarding this product and will surely pass along this information to your lawn and garden team.

As an owner of this product, I would like to know if this is available as a six-sided garden kit. Hexagon shaped would be great for flowers!

Asked by: Duane
Unfortunately the square shape is the only option that we have currently for our garden beds.
