This product is an elevated wood planter that measures 49x23x30 inches and can hold up to 10 cubic feet of soil. It is ideal for growing fresh herbs, vegetables, flowers, succulents, and other plants at home.
Here are some of the pros and cons of this product based on my experience and research.
Pros of Jumbl Raised Canadian Cedar Garden Bed
The product is made of 100% red cedar wood, which is a durable and eco-friendly material that resists weather-related damage, insects, and rot.
It also has a unique red coloring that adds beauty and warmth to any outdoor space.
The wood is untreated and safe for organic gardening.
Large planting area
The product has a spacious bed space that can accommodate a variety of plants and vegetables.
It has a depth of 10 inches, which is enough for most root systems to grow healthy and strong.
The product also has a height of 30 inches, which makes it comfortable and convenient to access and tend to the plants without bending or kneeling too much.
Easy to maintain
The product comes with a fabric liner that separates the soil from the wood and prevents leakage.
The liner also helps keep the soil moist and aerated, which promotes plant growth and reduces water consumption.
The product also has drainage holes at the bottom that allow excess water to drain out and prevent waterlogging or mineral buildup.
Cons of Jumbl Raised Canadian Cedar Garden Bed
Difficult to assemble
The product requires some assembly and tools, which are not included in the package.
The instructions are not very clear or detailed, and some of the parts are not labeled or marked properly.
I had to use some trial and error to figure out how to fit the pieces together correctly. It took me about an hour to assemble it by myself.
The product does not have enough support or stability for the weight of the soil and plants.
The wood pieces are connected by dovetail joints, which are not very strong or secure.
Some of the joints were loose or misaligned, causing gaps and wobbles in the structure.
I had to reinforce some of the joints with screws and glue to make it more sturdy.
The product is quite heavy when filled with soil and plants.
It weighs about 25 pounds when empty, but can go up to 300 pounds when full.
This makes it hard to move or relocate if needed. I had to place it on a level and solid surface where I wanted it to stay permanently.
It has some advantages such as natural wood, large planting area, and easy maintenance, but it also has some drawbacks such as difficult assembly, flimsy construction, and being heavy.
