I searched high and low for a raised garden bed on legs. This has everything I wanted, tall height, food safe materials, treated wood, large size with good depth. This took 9, 35L bags of organic garden potting soil. The box and one of the wooden boards was damaged upon arrival but the scratched and dented part of the board ending up facing inwards. I did not tuck in the lining as shown but left it out. While assembling watch the YouTube video instead of the reading the instructions enclosed, MUCH easier! Can't wait to see the end results of my planting later in the season!
I'm not optimistic for my VegTrug (updated)

I was really excited about the VegTrug, with the fabric liner and all the accessories available. But once I had it here I was incredibly disappointed in the quality. It came with one of the main boards splitting, as well as the pre-assembled slats on one side peeling apart from the screws. It seemed like too much of a hassle to return, so we put it together anyway, hoping for the best.
On the bright side: the fabric liner is awesome and the design is pretty good.
The big downsides: The wood pieces didn't fit together well, and the wood is prone to splitting.
I'm not optimistic this will last very long at all. I purchased another raised bed at the same time, and it was cheaper and sturdier. I can't see myself purchasing another VegTrug in the future, which is unfortunate because I was really enthusiastic about the product line.
UPDATE: August 2017
Well, it has survived a year - thankfully! It's been full of dirt the whole time and not moved. Each of the legs is on top of a brick to further protect it from the sinking into the soil. It's sturdy enough so far. I wouldn't attempt moving it because of the split boards, though. The wood itself is beginning to fade a lot. It probably needs some kind of re-coating or wood conditioner, but I'm not even sure what to put on it in such close proximity to vegetables.
I am raising my rating from 2 to 3 stars since it has surpassed my initial expectations. I still think, for such an investment, that the quality should be much, much better.

I was so disappointed when I received this. It is made in China and the wood is substandard. 2 boards were badly cracked and a third board was completely split. (See attached photos) I'm sure it would fall apart further upon assembly. It's being returned.
The BEST investment ever

The VegTrug is easily assembled and very sturdy. The size is perfect for our quickly expanding organic garden. Currently, we are growing a winter vegetable garden, which includes a mixture of both root and leafy vegetables. Additionally, we are utilizing the VegTrug to grow over seventy different herbs. I have physical issues that limit my mobility. The VegTrug is the perfect solution, enabling me to continue my life long passion for gardening. The height and width accommodate planting through harvesting without kneeling or stooping. Our commitment to a strictly organic approach to gardening is facilitated more easily with the VegTrug due to limited weeds and pests. We have been so pleased with the VegTrug that we just placed our third order within the past month.

I had one of these for 7 years, it was made in New England and sold by a garden co. that still sells it.( theirs is now made in China) Sadly, it finally rotted and need to be replaced. Amazon had the best price and free S&H with Prime. It , too is now made in China, supposed to be Red cedar. I was skeptical. However, upon receipt and assembly, I am very happy to say that all went well. All needed parts were precision perfect, and screws, etc. included as per directions. It takes a bit of time to put it together... a few hours, depending on your dexterity and competence. The wood planks were not quite as thick as the first one. This planter is a good size for home gardening of veggies. A liner is included in the packaging. I also have the insect netting, which is really useful . Now... will it last as long as the other one? Time will tell.
This thing is great!

so far, so good. we have a lot of herbs growing in this along with some red peppers! I have to say, I thought I was going to be in for a few hours of sweating and swearing trying to build this thing but It couldn't have went together any more smoothly or easily or faster... if it did, it would have came pre-assembled! We love it.. I got it as a Christmas gift for my wife who loves to garden but has been having a lot of trouble with her back that makes it too painful to bend over and garden and pull weeds and all. with this, there's no bending required and if over the next few years it starts to rot from the water and weather, the different parts can easily be replaced by a quick trip to Home Depot or Lowe's for a board or two and some wood screws.

VegTrug is fairly easy to assemble, though the YouTube video is helpful.
I received 2 pieces of wood that were badly split & unusable, so I had to spend some time working around that. Disappointing considering the cost. You never know what you are going to find (or not find) in a flat pack box.
Other than that, it looks good & sturdy.
Would buy again.
I love the VegTrug!

The VegTrug is fantastic! My mother wanted a garden inside our screen porch and now she has it! We are growing tomatoes, peas, squash, zucchini, lettuce, radishes, carrots, and strawberries all in this one planter. Absolutely amazing!

Assembly is much easier than other similar products, with clearly labeled and numbered screws in an organizer, rather than just jumbled in a plastic bag. The height is just right to work with without stooping, and the Fir wood smells fantastic - it's a beautiful addition to any patio or garden.
