Eco-Stained Elevated Planter Box

This seem like a good deal. 2 beds for 49 dollars.

Has55, have you bought from the company before?  Just curious about the statement on their home page:

Not many companies survive with zero profit.  Just curious....

I'd be very suspicious.  The site has only been up since March 10.

Also, the usual advice applies:  If it seems too good to be true, it probably isn't.  Caveat emptor.

Hmmm, very interesting.  Based on current materials pricing it would likely cost you more than $49 to buy the Cedar/Cypress planking on the exterior, let alone the aluminum legs, and 5 gallon poly water reservoirs.  I'm almost tempted to run the gamut and see what happens, but it could get ugly.

429 Gwinnet Drive, Lawrenceville actually comes up 428 - a used car dealer.  How apropros.

Nash's phone number on the sign says (770) 822-2068; their website shows sales (678) 317-2797, and service (678) 317-2806; both Atlanta, GA exchanges.
"Quilltop" that offers the boxes give (689) 204-1200; that's Orlando, FL. - looking up their number yields:

  Good find has55; but I think the well(?) is too deep for me!

Hass,  So your quest for a raised bed continues.  Are you looking for wheels, also?  This is just my opinion, but the wood on all 3 seems to be 1/2" and wouldn't last very long.  I use 2"x8" for the side frames of my elevated/table top beds and 3/4" plywood for the bottoms.  The bottoms are supported underneath every 2' or less.  I get about 7 years out of these materials.  The treated wood 4"x4" notched legs were in contact with the dirt and where hollowed out by dry rot organisms and/or termites.  I now use cement blocks to elevate the beds.  Those puppies are going no where!  Razz

Trolley driver made a 2'x4' table top bed for herbs.  It would be sturdy enough for wheels.  I'll see if I can find a photo.SFG Journey: Table top garden bed. Table108

This was my 1'x4' herb bed that TD used as an idea. Too many 1" drain holes so I had to cork most of them.

I'll have to look in TD's threads to find his 2'x4' TT.
