The Lifetime Raised Garden Bed Kit contains an Early Start clear vinyl plastic tent enclosure and two 4×4 garden beds 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 bed. 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 bed, 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.

EZ and works I am a Black Thumb & not creative, ambitious, or financially secure enough to build a proper raised-bed garden system, but I wanted to try to grow something other than lawn this year. I bought the Lifetime Raised Bed Garden Kit from another retailer in early March. Assembly was quick and simple (though it took more than 10 minutes for me). A groundcloth is not included; I used an old tarp. I stacked the two tiers instead of using them side-by-side – the individual tiers did not seem deep enough to support the roots of larger plants. If you’re planting on top of your own soil, this might not be a problem.Adding soil was the most costly and labor-intensive step. I was able to buy seeds and starters the day after I bought the kit. The little tent worked very well for protecting young plants from the wind and from marauding cats. I left the tent up until the plants were pushing through the openings and I couldn’t close it at all. I installed a drip hose to make watering…

Raised right Simple and very straight forward to assemble. Just interlocking pieces, clips, and a few screws hold this together. I stacked mine to make a tall raised bed. Filled with top soil (about (12) 40 lb bags). I use it in the spring for my carrot plot, and all winter long for lettuce. Winters can occasionally be harsh around here. Since I just received this, I do not know how well the cover will work for the lettuce and mid-winter replanting.So far no problems with the cover. I was worried that the sides would bow out with that much weight pushing from the inside, but currently no problems in that department. The cover is just a plastic sheet with another zipper for the screen. The cover is supported by camping tent poles which are tied (inside) and velcroed to the base via tabs. The cover does not seal to the raised bed, there is a small gap all the way around so your plants will still have fresh air, but may also cause the sun warmed air to escape.It is what it is…
