Let me guess something about you. If you’re like most people, you hate to crouch down or kneel to plant, maintain or harvest your veggies. If I’m right you need to read this. You know how excruciating your back pain feels that you end up walking around like a robot? I do. That wouldn’t be an issue if you had a Keter Raised Garden Planter.

At this point you’re probably asking why this planter is any different from plenty others out there.
And that’s a genuine question.
Most conventional planters are made of wood or lumber. While these have served gardeners for years and probably will continue to exist, they suck at one thing:
And that is wooden planters keep disintegrating and breaking apart more often.
You have to go through the trouble of replacing them every now and then – something I personally dislike.
However, when it comes to Keter raised garden planter, durability is guaranteed. Made with polypropylene resin and a rattan pattern finish, you’ll be hard pressed from top to bottom to find a better planter.

If we lived in a perfect world, I’d stop here with only praises for this garden planter. But we don’t and nothing is ever perfect.
Keter garden planter included.
A couple of users have reported broken water reservoirs, distorted water stoppers, and even broken rims.
I looked up on Amazon and here’s what one of those users had to say;
“I bought two of these planters for my rooftop patio. Both boxes arrived damaged and the planter boxes both contained chipped corners and broken rims. Product assembly was easy. The product appears intact unless you look closely and can see the damaged portions. Overall, I would not choose this product again.”
There were a few others who had similar sentiments. The company has made assurances that these issues would be resolved.
But in the meantime, my advice would be to first check from your local store nearest to you. When an item ships through several states, anything is likely to occur - including damage.
However, on average the sentiments have been positive. Here’s what some of the current users have to say.
“Great for urban gardening - I live in a condo and thought I was doomed to have a small, lame garden, but I was wrong! I bought the first one of these for flowers, but after seeing how well they did, I bought a second to grow vegetables. The soil stays moist even in the summer without having to water every day, which is convenient for me since my balcony isn't plumbed for a garden hose. I love it and will buy another for spring planting!”
And another one said;
“Well made and easy to assemble - Like how deep it is. Wasn't sure about the plastic, but it is well- made and study. Great height. I like the he drains for excess water and the pop-up leaf to indicate when the reservoir is filling up. Water can be used on other plantings.”
That’s why having a Keter raised garden planter would make your life so much more enjoyable, and even help you grow more crops.
