We recently reviewed four raised garden bed kits ranging in price from about $90 to about $150. Some are made of wood, some are made of plastic, and they are available in different shapes and sizes. Hopefully our summary of our latest reviews will help you make a decision about which raised garden bed kit would work best for you.Lifetime 60069 Raised Garden Bed Kit
The Lifetime 60069 Raised Garden Bed Kit is available for $52.99, or you can order a set of three for $149.88. It measures 4' x 4' and is 9 inches tall. The kits are also stackable so you can get a raised garden that is up to 18 inches deep.
This kit is made from a UV protected, high density polyethylene material that will not crack, peel, or rot and it is backed by a 5 year limited warranty.
The Lifetime 60069 Raised Garden Bed Kit is getting great reviews from customers online. We were able to find well over 200 reviews for this kit and it received a very impressive average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars.
While several customers said that the assembly instructions are a bit confusing, assembly itself is actually quite simple. One customer who ordered the three pack said that they had all three of these raised garden beds assembled in under seven minutes.
Because this kit is made from such a durable material, it is very long-lasting and a number of customers who left 5 star reviews several years ago, came back years later to update their reviews and say that they’re still very happy with their purchase.
Gronomics REGB 24-48 24-Inch by 48-Inch by 30-Inch Rustic Elevated Garden Bed
The Gronomics Rustic Elevated Garden Bed is available for $123.99. It’s the most expensive option (unless you’re buying a set of three of the Lifetime kits mentioned above), but it’s also made from 100% Western Red Cedar and it stands on four legs to elevate it higher off the ground. This is a great option for people with bad backs, bad knees, or mobility issues.

This kit is super easy to assemble and several customers said that they had all of the pieces put together in about 10 minutes. Many customers also appreciate the fact that this raised garden bed is so high off the ground. Not only is it great for people with mobility issues, it’s also helpful to keep your vegetables away from animals. One customer in particular said that they have three dogs who like to get into their garden, but with the Gronomics Rustic Elevated Garden Bed, all of her plants are high enough that her dogs can’t get to them.
People have been leaving fantastic reviews for this raised garden bed, but their customer service is also getting a lot of praise. A few customers said that they did have some issues like pieces being damaged in shipping, and the company didn’t hesitate to send out replacement parts. According to our research, this raised garden bed is a great product that is backed by a company that stands behind their product.
Greenes 4 Ft. X 4 Ft. X 21 In. Tiered Cedar Raised Garden Bed
The Greenes Tiered Cedar Raised Garden Bed is available for $97.93. This option features a tiered, terraced design. The top tier is 21 inches deep. The second tier is 14 inches deep. And the bottom tier is 7 inches deep.
The bottom tier is deep enough for most vegetables and the top two tiers are great for deep rooted vegetables.
This kit is also designed for easy assembly. The pieces are dovetailed so that they will slide together. You’ll be able to assemble this kit without any tools although some of the pieces are bit snug and may require a tap with a rubber mallet. The GreenesRaised Garden Bed is also made in the USA and is made of North American Cedar.
The reviews for this kit are pretty good, but not as strong as they are for the other options mentioned above. We found close to 400 reviews online for this item and it received an average rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars. Most customers are saying that this kit is durable, functional, easy to assemble, and it also looks great in your garden.
One of the complaints that came up in some of the negative reviews was that this kit holds so much dirt and you have to buy a lot of soil to fill it up. To be fair, the dimensions are listed on the sales page, so it shouldn’t be a big surprise how much dirt it will take to fill up this kit. Most of the reviews are positive and if you like the design, then this is an option worth considering.
Keter Easy Grow Patio Garden Flower Plant Planter Raised Elevated Garden Bed

This Planter sits up nice and high so it gives you benefits like the Gronomics kit mentioned above. It also includes some other features not found on the other options. It has an easy-to-read water gauge that will tell you when your plants need some additional moisture. It also has a drainage system that can be opened or closed so you can make sure your plants are getting just the right amount of water.
