These raised planters are among the best we've
seen. Solidly constructed, they are intelligently
designed to permit a significant amount of
The small and medium planters have a
V-shaped trough that makes efficient use of soil,
letting you grow deep-rooted vegetables
towards the center and shallow-rooted herbs
and vegetables closer to the sides. Each planter
is about 32" tall, a height that lets you work
comfortably whether seated or standing. As the
center of the trough is nearly 16" deep, stakes
can be used to support tall or heavy plants. The
small planter, about 41" long and 30" wide,
provides just under 8 sq.ft. of growing space.
The medium planter, at 72" long and 30" wide,
provides almost 14 sq.ft. of growing space.
The compact planter occupies only 19-1/2" x 18"
of floor space, yet provides over two square feet
of surface area for growing. The sloped front is
suitable for growing shallow-rooted plants,
while the back is 10-1/2" deep for growing
deeper-rooted plants. At just under 25" tall, it
makes a great accent planter and also an accessible
planter for kids.
On each model, the slats used for the sidewalls
are spaced to ensure good drainage and
soil aeration, and soil is contained with an
included fabric liner. All the wooden components
are sustainably harvested cedar or fir
(depending on supply) and have a food-grade
finish. The leg end caps are plastic. Minor
assembly required; instructions and stainless-steel
hardware are included.
These two covers are tailored to fit the small and medium VegTrug planters (B & C) snugly. The greenhouse cover traps heat to create a warmer microclimate in your garden and extend your growing season. It is made from clear polyethylene plastic with embedded netting for strength. The frame included with the greenhouse cover is just under 2' tall, providing ample growing room for plants. Made of 5/8" steel tubing with a weather-resistant powder finish, it rests on a lip just inside the VegTrug, and can be attached more permanently with included mounting hardware.
For when the weather gets warmer, the micro-mesh cover (available separately) protects your plants from birds and insects. With perforations 0.6mm (about 1/32") in size, it lets air, water and sunlight through but keeps most pests out.
Each cover has a double-ended zipper in the middle to let you tend your plants from either side, and attaches to the frame with hook-and-loop fastener ties.
A convenient way to garden. Highly recommended.
