U-shaped garden beds are cost-effective, providing more growing space with less material costs. They work well with matching garden trellises, to enclose an area with flowering vines, fruits and vegetables.
Trim pack options are available for any size planter, for added durability and an attractive finish. Planter bottom options are also available, to provide adequate soil drainage for gardens on patios, driveways and rooftops.

Raised garden beds can be set up directly on lawn, sand or gravel and dirt. For gardens on rooftops, decks and patios, optional planter bottoms are recommended to improve soil drainage and help protect the surface below. If the ground below is toxic, planter bottoms lined with barrier cloth will help keep plant roots safe from exposure.
Build raised beds in a flat and open area, if possible, for easy access and sun exposure. Pathways around raised beds should be 18 to 24 inches wide for normal foot traffic and 36 to 48 inches for wheelbarrow and wheelchair access.
