I have had one of these now for two years and am now expanding my raised bed empire due to nasty clay soils and a short growing season. Last year, using a premium organic soil system, I had so much success with everything (the weather helped). I would say you need to use screws not nails. Customer services are excellent as well. A very good product and a very fair price.

I bought two kits, one large, one small. They arrived on time and customer service was excellent. The kits took a while to assemble though, even with an expert, ie, my father on hand. Screws were poor quality and not really long enough so that was disappointing. Oterwise, the beds look great and I'm looking foward to an excellent harvest.

I was looking for good cheap raised garden beds and I stumbled upon these lads. I am very happy with the product, they arrived the next day, delivery only costing 2.95. Included were full instructions on how to assemble the raised beds so it wasn't a big job, only took about 10 or 15 mins each. Looking forward to seeing what kind of successes I'll have with them

Very satisfied with raised bed kits.

A very basic kit. I also bought one of the more expensive 'Premier' range which I think is much better value for the thickness of the wood you get. The premier raised bed is excellent, this budget one is fine and I have no complaints but imagine it won't look as good as the more solid ones after a couple of years.

Asked By Daisy
on May 24th, 2021
Hi what do you use to treat the wood? Is it heat treated or do you use chemicals?
Answered by Niall
on May 25th, 2021
Hi Daisy The wood is pressure treated using a product called Tanalith E. This is certified as ok to use when growing food so perfectly fine when producing your own food I am afraid heat treatment won't add to the longevity of boards when outside in our climate Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Lynne
on February 26th, 2021
Hi Niall Thinking of buying a 4’x4’x14”. I was thinking they were pre-drilled but have just read one of your Q&A indicating they aren’t, and I don’t have a power screwdriver as in you demo video. How difficult might this be, I am no longer young and don’t have much strength in wrists.
Answered by Niall
on February 26th, 2021
Hi Lynne I am afraid the wood is not pre-drilled but to be honest as the wood is a soft wood it really does not take much force to drill in to. Even by hand. With an electric drill it is a 10 minute job. Without maybe half an hour Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Bruce
on February 17th, 2021
We're thinking of putting some raised beds on our lawn in the garden. The soil quality underneath is poor, what sort of bed height would you recommend? Would 7" be sufficient or should we go for 9" or 14"?
Answered by Niall
on February 17th, 2021
Hi Bruce If the soil is really bad underneath i would at least go for 9 inches deep. In this depth you can grow 90% of crops except root crops like carrots, parsnips, potatoes etc. In a 14 inch bed you can grow anything you like Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Antonia
on January 02nd, 2021
I’d like a 3ft by 8ft 14” allotment raised bed. Would you be able to custom make that for me please?
Answered by Niall
on January 03rd, 2021
Hi Antonia I am afraid we only do the 8ft beds in the Premier and Deluxe beds. The reason for this is that the wood is thicker in these ranges and due to the length of bed it won't bow. However if we did the 8ft in the Allotment range it would bow with the weight of the soil Niall Quickcrop
Asked By James
on September 18th, 2020
Hi is this for 1 raised bed, or 6 of these for the price stated?
Answered by Niall
on September 18th, 2020
Hi James I am afraid 1. I am not sure where you are seeing that it is for 6. I have just checked the text and it says 1 Niall Quickcrop

Hi, I am looking for 6 feet long and 2 feet wide with 14 inch height.Could you do this size.
Answered by Niall
on July 22nd, 2020
Hi Anup Yes of course. You can order the parts directly in the Quick picker section or alternatively place an order for a 6ft x 3ft bed and then just email us with the order number explaining that you want it supplied as a 6ft x 2ft bed instead and we will do this Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Sue
on June 13th, 2020
Hi I'm looking at putting raised beds on top of my current veg patch to make it easier to mange. Would I need to line these or can they go striaght on the earth? Also, is it best to have the 14inch high ones as then all veg/salad stuff can be grown? Last question, if I get the veg soil mix that yiy sell, is that all I need it to I need to top up with top soil? Sorry for so many questions
Answered by Niall
on June 14th, 2020
Hi Sue If putting directly on to soil there is no need for a liner once you go for a 14 inch bed or above as nothing will grow up through this. 14 inch beds will allow you grow any crop you want to. The soil mix is perfect to fill the beds with nothing needed to be added Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Emma
on April 25th, 2020
Hi there, Do the beds need to be constructed on a flat surface or can you install them on a slight slope?
Answered by Niall
on April 25th, 2020
Hi Emma A slight slope is fine. Just be careful to dig the back back of it slightly in to the slope so that it has more stability Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Clare McGarry
on April 24th, 2020
Thanks for your reply Niall. I was concerned that if I put soil inside the four walls of wood & if this is lying on concrete, that the soil will become water-logged. If I just place a liner, as you say, this may not prevent water-logging. Someone told me to put a layer of stones.
Answered by Niall
on April 25th, 2020
Hi Clare If you put a layer of stones in first then the liner and then the soil you will be doing nicely and it won't water log at all. This allows the water pass out of the bed but not bring any soil with it Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Clare McGarry
on April 24th, 2020
1. Is the wood already treated with preservative? 2. I have a large concrete area that I want to put raised beds on, so they wouldn't be on soil/grass. What do I need to put in the bottom of the raised bed to aid drainage- just soil? Sand?
Answered by Niall
on April 24th, 2020
Hi Clare Yes the wood is treated to handle our climate so no need to put anything on it We do liners for the beds if going on a patio etc. Just put the word Liner in the search bar and they will come up Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Elodie
on April 20th, 2020
Hi Niall you suggested buying 520l of soil for the 14inch 4x4. however I wouldnt know where to start. it is for vegetables which one would you recommend t buy? thanks
Answered by Niall
on April 20th, 2020
Hi Elodie If you buy a 6ft x 4ft bed x 14 inches high and the tonne bag of vegetable soil mix you will have the exact amount to fill the bed Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Elodie
on April 13th, 2020
Hi I am about to buy the 14th inch 4 x 4 how much soil do i need to buy and what quality? thanks
Answered by Niall
on April 13th, 2020
Hi Elodie This bed will take 520 litres of soil to fill. If it is vegetables you are growing the richer the mix the better as vegetables are very hungry crops Niall Quickcrop
Asked By kathryn O'Neal
on April 03rd, 2020
I am thinking of buying a 6ft x 6ft planter. Could you advise what soil I should get - I know you said you didn't need top quality all the way through. What measurements of which soil would you recommend. We are new to all of this!
Answered by Niall
on April 04th, 2020
Hi Kathryn If it is a 14 inch bed you will need 1000 litres of soil to fill the bed but only the top 10 inches of the bed need to top grade soil so one of the tonne bags (850 litres) will be well enough for the top of it Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Cian Lynch

Asked By Espen
on March 18th, 2020
Hi Niall – We're looking to grow a mixed crop of vegetables, salads, potatoes, and herbs. Would 9 inch suffice, or do we need to go for the 14 inch? Also, perhaps more importantly, what soil do you recommend I buy? We live in Dundee, Scotland.
Answered by Niall
on March 18th, 2020
Hi Espen A 9 inch bed is perfect for 90% of crops except root crops which need a deeper soil like potatoe, carrots, parsnips etc. When getting soil you need a good sandy topsoil with a mix of roughly 30% compost mixed in for best growing of vegetables Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Amanda keeble
on March 12th, 2020
Hi sorry to ask another question but should I have higher sides if I’m growing on top of poor acidic soil rock etc ? I’m on the Isle of Skye
Answered by Niall
on March 12th, 2020
Hi Amanda 14 inch high beds are the ideal as nothing can grow up through that depth of soil and you can grow any crop in 14 inches of soil. So in short no. 14 inches high should be fine Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Amanda Keeble
on March 12th, 2020
Hi the planters look great 👍 the 6x4 ft one holds 790 litres of soil will it be strong enough to grow potatoes and leeks? I thought of using sleepers but these are so much easier for me ( no sawing lol ) 😊 thanks
Answered by Niall
on March 12th, 2020
Hi Amanda Yes they are perfectly strong to hold the full amount of soil and grow leeks and potatoes. Better still the wood is treated with a substance that helps them last longer in our climate but doesn't have any nasties in it that will leech in to the soil. Whereas sleepers are not the best in this regard Niall Quickcrop
Asked By mikaela Leaf
on January 24th, 2020
Hi, do the beds come with an inner lining? I can't seem to see it in the description
Answered by Niall

Hi Mikaela I am afraid they don't come with a liner however if you put the word liner in the search bar you can find a liner to suit Niall Quickcrop

Hi Khalif This sized bed takes 1189 litres to fill to the top. That said you really only need very good soil mix in the top 8/9 inches of the bed Niall Quickcrop

Asked By Emily
on April 17th, 2019
I’m thinking of using these on a sloping site. Will they be ok if one end is dig into the slope to create level beds? Or would this cause them to rot more quickly? They’d be surrounded by stone/ gravel rather than mud.
Answered by Niall
on April 17th, 2019
Hi Emily In theory if they are up against gravel and stone they won't rot any sooner than just open to the eliments but it might be an idea to fix a liner to the outside of the bed where it is being buried. It might just help improve the longevity a little Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Pat maher
on March 02nd, 2019
How long is the wood expected to last for. I say this as I watch a bed I made from decking boards , last for just a few years and then rotted to dust
Answered by Niall
on March 04th, 2019
Hi Pat The allotment beds will comfortably last between 6/8 years whereas the Premier and Deluxe beds will be more like 10/12 years and more Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Marie
on September 08th, 2018
Hi, can I use these raised beds on top of my cobble lock?
Answered by Niall
on September 10th, 2018
Hi Marie You can of course however i would suggest you use a liner if doing so. This will allow the water out but it won't carry any soil with it on to the cobble lock. Just put the word liner in the Search bar and you can find the one you need. They are not very expensive Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Penny Wadey
on August 08th, 2018
Are the boards pre-drilled for the screws?
Answered by Niall
on August 08th, 2018
Hi Penny I am afraid not however the reason is they don't really need to be. The wood is a soft wood and it is treated so putting the screws in through the wood is very straightforward. Screws and instructions supplied. Niall Quickcrop
Asked By E Parkin
on September 18th, 2017
What exactly is the timber treated with? Thanks!
Answered by Andrew
on September 18th, 2017
It is treated with Tanalith. Not to be confused with the older Tanalith E which is not recommended at all when growing food. Tanalith is certified by the soil association as fine to use on wood when growing food.
Asked By Paddy
on December 09th, 2016
Hi,how many allotment beds 6x4 i4inch will a bulk bag of compost fill
Answered by Andrew
on December 09th, 2016
Only one i am afraid Paddy. The depth of the bed makes a huge difference to the amount of soil it takes. A 6ft x 4ft x 14" high bed takes 790 litres to fill and the bulk bags are 850litres
Asked By Jamie

What is the volume of compost material I need for my 6 x 4 x 14 inch high allotment planter please?

Hello, 793 Litres will fill it
Asked By Moira
on April 26th, 2016
I'm thinking of buying a raised bed kit, I was wondering if I could place it on concrete blocks to raise it up a bit and to help with drainage before I fill it with earth and plant out my veg plants. Also would I have to reinforce the bottom of the planter?
Answered by Andrew
on April 27th, 2016
hello, yes you can, these raised beds don't need to be reinforced.
Asked By Chris
on December 27th, 2015
I have two new allotment raised beds. Just wondering whether I could paint just the outside of them? I realise they are treated, and I would not want to paint inside near the soil, but it would suit our garden to be a colour.
Answered by Andrew
on January 03rd, 2016
Hi Chris. You can paint the beds but I would avoid any oil based paints which can contain heavy metals and may contaminate your soil. I would recommend using a water based wood stain. I hope this helps. Andrew
Asked By Victoria Johnsen
on March 31st, 2015
Hello. Is it possible to stack these to create a deeper raised bed? We are installing some that need to be wheelchair accessible and I believe 60cm is the recommended height. Thank you.
Answered by Andrew
on March 31st, 2015
Hi Victoria The tallest bed we do is 12 inches high but yes, it is possible for us to make taller ones if required.
Asked By Dan
on March 20th, 2015
Hi there. I'm just wondering what compound the timber is actually treated with. I'd like to put the bed next to a small stream and was told that certain pressure treated timber should not be in close contact to streams/ponds. Thanks
Answered by Andrew
on March 20th, 2015
Hi Dan. The preservative used in our raised beds is suitable for growing organic food crops so will be fine beside a stream. We use a copper based preservative which is similar to that used to spray potatoes against blight but in a higher concentration.
