Best pre-made raised garden beds for your vegetables

pre-made raised garden beds

I chose these ready made raised beds based on their reviews. At the top of my list will be those that have received 4-5 star reviews.

Before purchasing a raised bed, you need to first consider:

  • Their size, and the space you have available
  • The height of elevation. If you have back problems, a raised bed of a table height would be suitable than one that will sit on the ground.
  • Material – this could be cedar, galvanized metal, wood  etc

1. Self watering raised beds

Self watering raised beds are great for beginner gardeners. This one has a gauge that indicates when the plants need additional moisture. This on its own is gold. As beginners, we do tend to over-water our plants. The drainage system can be opened or closed, to control the soil’s drainage capability. The extra water that comes out of the drainage system is already nutrient rich, so you can use again to water the plants.

It is also easy to set up, with no technical skills required. The Keter Urban Bloomer is perfect for urban gardeners and gardening enthusiasts who live in small spaces.

The planter is made of plastic, and of a decent finish. It will do well as a planter for your deck, patio, or window gardening. It is surprisingly durable though.

Customers have given it  4.5 out of 5 stars for sturdiness and good quality. You need not worry about your raised bed falling apart.

2. Wooden raised garden beds

YAHEETECH Wooden Raised/Elevated Garden Bed Planter Box Kit for Vegetable/Flower/Herb Outdoor Gardening Natural Wood, 49 x 23.2 x 30.1inYAHEETECH Wooden Raised/Elevated Garden Bed Planter Box Kit for Vegetable/Flower/Herb Outdoor Gardening Natural Wood, 49 x 23.2 x 30.1inYAHEETECH Wooden Raised/Elevated Garden Bed Planter Box Kit for Vegetable/Flower/Herb Outdoor Gardening Natural Wood, 49 x 23.2 x 30.1in

Wooden raised garden beds are very popular because the material is solid, and results in sturdy raised planters. The Yaheetech brand is back-friendly, given its 30″ height (about 76 cm). If you have any physical ailments (or trying to avoid them), you can do your gardening with ease as this will not require much leaning or bending.

I’m always cautious when working with anything made of wooden. The splinters can be a nuisance. These wooden raised garden beds are sanded well, to prevent such accidents.

The planter is 10″ deep, making it suitable for planting most leafy vegetables, peppers, cucumbers, and other above the ground veggies. It uses about 8 bags of soil.

It’s not necessary to put a liner in this planter box. You can add the soil directly without worrying about weeds being a nuisance since the box does not sit directly on the ground).

You can also drill in more holes for extra drainage. That’s the beauty of wood. These raised beds are made of the fir wood, a tree that is closely related to the cedar.

Overall, the product received 4.5 out 5 stars in customer reviews.

Not all the raised beds are of a near table height. There are other variations depending on what you need:

It’s painted with an environmentally safe and friendly anti-rust coating, so you need not worry about its durability. The whole point of galvanizing the metal is to prevent rust, afterall.

It does not have a base, so you may liners to prevent too much weeds.
