Product Features

Product Features

Raised-garden kits are typically straightforward in design and placement. But it's still a landscape project worth taking time to construct. To ensure that you're happy with the results and that your raised garden has the longest life possible, review the product features, including height and width, enclosures, material, and overall square footage. These features will help you find the raised-garden kit that's the best fit for your yard, your gardening goals, and your time.

Height and Width

Judge the height and width of the raised-garden kit as it relates to other elements in your landscape. The raised-garden kit should also be sized so you can reach the middle.

Enclosures

An enclosure around the raised-garden kit may help to prevent garden damage due to critters such as deer and rabbits. Review the enclosure to make sure you are able to either enter the raised garden or access it from over the enclosure.

Material

Most raised-garden kits are created with wood, whether natural or treated; some may be constructed from a decklike material. Investigate the life of your raised-garden kit material and its elements.

Overall Square Footage

The raised-garden kit should fit inside the boundaries of your landscape without overpowering it. Make sure your planned-for space provides enough area to walk around the raised garden.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Raised-garden kits can be found in virtually every size and price range. Once you establish your landscape needs and your budget, review these two important purchase considerations: assembly and maintenance. Both can ease your frustration in putting together your raised-garden kit as well as reduce the time that you spend on upkeep. Here are quick introductions to what to consider.

Assembly

Any raised-garden kit will have certain assembly requirements. Some may snap together quickly, while others may require tools and a few more skills.

Maintenance

The material of the raised-garden kit will in large part determine the maintenance requirements of your raised garden. Treated wood should be free of any finishing materials that may leach into the ground and the crops.
