The Garden Star Raised Garden Bed 12’ x 12’ two level is ornate, magnificent and unique – just a few of the superlatives that come to mind when describing it! Sensational from every angle, it will provide a beautiful eye-catching focal point for your yard or garden.
Stunning as a flower garden and incredibly functional as a veggie garden you can plant annuals and perennials with vegetables. Check out Plant, Friends and Enemies to mix and match your plantings. With two levels and seven individual raised beds it offers limitless choices for planting combinations.
The upper level bed would suit taller flowers such as Shasta Daisies or Black-Eyed Susan’s to create height. Plant colorful annuals in each of the six lower level beds or perhaps create a berry garden with Blueberries, Raspberries and Strawberries.
Each planting area can also be used for different herbs or low-growing veggies, while the center section is perfect for luscious tomatoes, fragrant herbs or even peas or beans. Veggies including artichoke, arugula, asparagus, lettuce, pole beans, beets, carrots and cabbage will all thrive in this raised garden bed.
Alternatively, you may want to consider planting the Garden Star as a kitchen garden or ‘Potager’ - an ornamental vegetable garden, often planted with flowers to enhance its natural beauty and make the process of providing food more joyful. A well planted Potager can provide fruit, herbs, cut flowers as well as veggies for your home.
Access our Know Grow Guide which shows how to grow the same amount of produce in only one quarter of the garden space compared to conventional gardening and much more extremely helpful information for gardeners of all levels of expertise! The guide’s Plant, Friends and Enemies chart shows you how to mix and match your plantings, listing all plants that happily coexist together by height and compatibility and how to space them apart.
By adding our stack and extend, versatile Veggie Wall, to your raised bed you will increase the growing area by 200% creating perfect growing conditions to cultivate cucumbers, pole beans or flowering vines like clematis, morning glory and scarlet runner beans. The durable framework of stainless-steel with nylon mesh netting is strong enough to support heavy fruits and vegetables like beef-steak tomatoes, cucumbers and melons. With no need for bending or crouching, harvesting and maintenance is a breeze.
Rabbits, dogs, cats and other garden pests can decimate your hard-won crop of ready to eat produce overnight. Protect your raised garden bed with our Animal Barrier. It slots into the corner and side joints of your raised bed to create a tough barrier to keep out marauding garden pests. The gated stainless-steel frame and heavy-duty rigid plastic mesh is built to last and won’t flop, rust or rot. The easy-access gate makes it simple to tend to your garden without any leaning or reaching. Purchase multiple kits to expand the protection to any dimension, or stack to any height.
Both Veggie Walls and Animal Barriers can easily be added to this Terraced Garden and other similar raised gardens which feature integral raised beds of differing heights with our T-Connector that attaches to the frame of the Veggie Wall and /or Animal Barrier and then is securely clamped onto the adjoining framework.
Include a Frame It All Worm Box to this deep raised bed to create a composter. By adding chopped leaves, grass clippings, semi-rotted compost and mealtime left-overs to the soil, you will encourage earthworms to take up residence, thrive and fertilize your raised garden soil with their castings and aerate your soil as they tunnel around.
Tool-free snap-lock joints make it simple to install. Your kit comes with everything you need other than soil and plants. Each modular kit includes 18 food safe, straight composite boards and 36 snap-lock stacking brackets.
The open-channel boards trap air, providing insulation to your soil, regulating your soil temperature. The warm soil in spring means you can plant earlier and because the soil remains warm later into fall it extends your growing season. The insulated board walls also keep your soil from drying out which reduces the need for water.
Stacking brackets allow you to install the additional layers of your garden just by inserting the stakes into the brackets below. Our patented snap-lock brackets simply slide onto each end of a board and fasten securely with snap-lock buttons. Brackets pivot 270 degrees, allowing endless design options or create your own garden with our Design It All 3D Tool.
As your garden needs and expertise grow you can add on to your modular raised bed any time by purchasing additional tool-free kits, boards and stacking brackets to stack or extend your garden. Curved boards are also available to incorporate into your design.

The Frame It All system of modular raised garden beds, borders, sandboxes and accessories was designed by our founder, Anthony Topping. As a professional landscape designer who spent many years creating high-end gardens in the Tri-State New York area, he felt there had to be a way to give homeowners the ability to easily create quality landscaping features and gardens for much less than paying a professional.
Here’s a note from Anthony on why he designed this product:
“The Garden Star is one of the most stunning of all the endless designs you can create. It’s the perfect centerpiece. Traditionally, boxwood hedges have been used to outline and create formal garden designs. With Frame It All you have the ability to create complex layouts with materials that are simple to install and will last for years without any maintenance!" – Anthony
