Product Description
  • Build a garden anywhere the sun shines.
  • L-Shaped and U-Shaped Elevated Planters offer great accessibility.

Elevated planters, also known as standing planters, are planter boxes with legs that raise your garden to a comfortable working height, so you can enjoy flowers, herbs and vegetables conveniently close to home and without the strain of bending over.

Elevated planters can be set up on any hard flat surface, such as a deck or patio, for an accessible kitchen garden right outside your door. They look great paired with matching garden trellises to bring flowering vines and climbing plants up to eye-level.

Our elevated planter kits are a popular choice for school and community gardens, allowing anyone to enjoy gardening, regardless of age or ability. Elevated planters are also ideal for gardens at retirement communities. They can be set up in many convenient locations—along walkways, balconies and courtyards—for long lasting and accessible container gardens.

Choosing Sizes and Options

What size planter is best for your garden? It depends on the size and shape of your growing area, as well as considerations such as accessibility and soil depth requirements. Consider these tips when planning your garden:

  • Choose your planter size
  • Width - All standing planters are about 2 feet wide, which provides a good balance of soil capacity, weight and accessibility.
  • Length - Standing planters are available from 2 to 6 feet long. Short planters require less floor space, to fit on a small balcony or porch. Longer planters provide more growing space and greater soil capacity per dollar.
  • Height - Standing planters come in two heights, 23 and 34 inches. Planters 34 inches tall will let you garden while standing up, without the need for bending over. Either height offers wheelchair access. Custom planter heights are also available. Please contact us for more information.
  • Depth - Standing planters come in soil depths ranging from 5.5 to 16.5 inches. Standing planters 11 inches deep are popular and versatile enough to grow most vegetables. Planters 16.5 inches deep provide more soil capacity for deep rooted plants, such as tomatoes, while 5.5 soil depths can be used to grow salad greens and short season herbs and flowers.
  • Shelf - Standing planters can be equipped with an optional shelf, to keep tools and amendments handy. The shelf option is only available for standing planters 34 inches tall and 5.5 to 11 inches deep.

All of our planters are made from durable cedar protected by a non-toxic waterproof sealant that is safe for vegetable gardening. In addition to the sizes above, custom standing planters are also available. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask. We'll help you build the perfect garden.

Setup and Assembly

Elevated planters can be set up on any hard and flat surface, such as a deck or patio, rooftop, driveway or parking lot. The planter’s slatted cedar bottom provides excellent drainage on non-absorbent surfaces such as compacted dirt and concrete.

Elevated planters can be built in many shapes and sizes, including long rectangles, L-shaped and U-shaped designs. Choose between two planter widths, 20 and 26 inches, and soil depths of 11 or 16.5 inches. Elevated planters stand comfortably at counter height, about 34 inches tall.
