I made 24" 2x4 stakes and pounded them into the ground in the middle of each outside wall to guarantee things don't bow in a few years.
I also coated the boards in mineral oil. This isn't necessary as the boards are cedar which is naturally rot resistant, but I prefer to over build things. I'll try to do this once every year at the start of the season.
I also added some chicken wire under the beds to keep the moles from digging up. I added a layer of cardboard on top of the wire to act as a weed blocker and to help attract worms when it decomposes.
The boards are indeed kind of rough and splintery, but they all fit together perfectly without needing a hammer. I thought about doing some light sanding before assembly, but it didn't really bother me. I might in a couple of months if it starts to bug me. I chose to drill a pilot hole in the caps before screwing them down to ensure that nothing split as others have complained about.
Since I purchased two kits and attached them, I am left with two spare boards, two spare caps, and two spare corner brackets. I intend on purchasing a third kit to extend my garden another 4', and I'll take the spare pieces from that kit and build the center garden up another layer to make it easier to pick small herbs.
Overall I'm completely satisfied with this product. It has flaws, but at this price point I can deal with that. With some minor adjustments and planning around your installation, this product will last for many years. I will be recommending this kit to friends and family.
UPDATE: May 26, 2013 - I've uploaded a couple photos into the customers image area to show you how the cedar has weathered after one year and also how it has bowed out due to my extending the length my combining three kits. I may reinforce the sides this year to prevent further creep. Overall I'm still happy with the raised bed for the price I paid.
This was an easy and quick way to get an "instant" garden. Just add dirt and plants and you're on your way.
The cedar boards are 4 feet long and 3.5 inches tall. Two boards per side for a total of 8 boards, 4 end connectors and 4 caps with screws for the end connectors.
The cedar was of average quality. I bought 3 kits and out of the three kits, a couple boards were cracked or had poor dovetail joints. And some of the boards had blotches of blue stain of some sort on one face. Some of the boards were smooth, some were rough. I had to use some judgement in board placement to make the "bad" stuff face inwards. For the price, I wasn't expecting much better so I can't say as I'm disappointed really, just relaying my experience with this product.
Putting the kit together took all of about 5 minutes and no tools are necessary except for a philips head screwdriver to put on the end caps.
I actually priced out the cost of cedar to build my raised garden bed from scratch and it would have cost me more to buy the wood myself. It would have been better quality wood, but it would also have required a lot more time to figure out how to join the boards at the corners. This kit reduced the hassle factor to zero.
If you're a woodworker, skip the kit and buy the materials yourself. You'll be happier. If you're the other 98% of the population, buy the kit and save yourself the frustration.
I like that you can buy multiple kits and configure your raised bed in different ways to meet your space and design requirements.
I purchased the Greenes Cedar Raised Garden Kit from a major home improvement store for around 30 bucks.
