      Raised Bed Gardening kit

        I received my raised bed kit from and can't wait to get it together and ready for my seedlings.

The great thing about this raised bed kit is that it ships directly to your door for free and requires no tools to put together. The kit came nicely packaged with no damage and once out of the box was together in minutes. The hardest part was decided where in my garden area I was going to place it.
