This is a beautiful cedar planter box. As other reviewers noted, it does have many pieces, but this looks stellar when it is assembled. It came in a flat pack box with all the pieces carefully packed in the box to ensure it wasn't damaged in transit. It took a little over an hour to assemble and would recommend having things like a power drill, square drill bit and a hammer. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a sharp cedar planter for the backyard or patio!
Beautiful once assembled; as previous reviewer stated you basically get a box of wood pieces; Took me about 2 hours tomout together.
Ordered 2 of these for growing climbing flowers and peas this year. They arrived in flat-pack boxes intact and in good condition, completely disassembled. The cedar is sanded, high-quality, fitted wood boards. Not cheap fence boards like other builders. Assembly took about an hour for the planter and about 45 minutes for the trellis, I coated the raw wood with a penetrating oil and sealer which only enhanced the color of the cedar, they look really great! I am happy with the quality and size of these planters, true to the images and description!
The product, once finished, is fine. To claim that it "assembles in minutes" is wildly inaccurate. To be very clear, what you receive is a package of wood and nails and screws, from which you construct a trellis and planter box. For the trellis alone, I had to hammer in 120 nails. One hundred and twenty. I had to drill holes in the posts for the planter box because the manufacturer forgot to pre-drill one of the posts. Now that this is built, I'm happy with it. But I removed the decal that says All Things Cedar. This was not built by All Things Cedar. It was built by me. And if you order this, it will be built by you. All 120 nails of it.
