" ...  first time it rained the entire box buckled(warped) and came apart!  ...  "
comment
" ...  It was not easy to assemble and collapsed after two weeks.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Where the leg was screwed in, the wood pulled from the screw. ... I’m assuming it’s because the wood quality is poor and very soft which allowed for the weight of the dirt to pull it from the leg.  ...  "

comment
" ...  THE TRAY CANNOT TAKE ANY TYPE OF PRESSURE ONCE THE SOIL GOES IN AND THE PLANT IS WATERED THE BOARDS BEND AND THE ENTIRE BOTTOM OF THE TRAY BREAKS AND FALLS APART.  ...  "

" ...  Three weeks after it was put together the screws split through the wood and the leg is just hanging on. ... It is not like I paid $10 for this item and I surely did not expect it to fall apart before we could even use it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We put this together relatively easily however two weeks in and it’s falling apart.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The dovetail joint is so lose it wont stay up when you get it in hence you need someone to hold it while you put the other sides together. ... Then I thought ok, the screws it now require in assembling will make it more sturdy, I was wrong there too.  ...  "

comment
" ...  We were excited to receive our raised bed for Mother’s Day, but within 2 month some of the screws holding the side pieces together ripped out for no apparent reason.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We tried to reassemble it, but the pieces wouldn’t fit together. ... Them we tried to glue it together, but still couldn’t get the box to hold together.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Side rails aren't strong enough to hold the weight of the soil, the wood tears away from the screws. ... After just a few months I have ratchet straps holding them together until the growing season is over.  ...  "
