The Terraced 4’ x 8’ x 11” Raised Garden Bed is the perfect size and a great choice for both newcomers to gardening as well as experienced gardeners; especially if the lack of garden space is an issue. It will afford the maximum of options in minimal space.
With easy tool-free assembly in about half an hour, it provides an eye-catching focal point when located prominently in a garden or on a deck, patio or cement surface. Its all-around access makes for effortless planting, tending, maintaining and harvesting, season after season without the need for back-breaking effort.
Incomparable as a flower garden, it’s also incredibly functional as a veggie garden. The deep 11” high section is great for growing tall veggies or flowers that need deeper root systems, like tomatoes and also for carrots, garlic and other root vegetables that need depth to develop freely. Another suggestion would be to make this deep section a berry garden with blueberries, raspberries and currants and plant juicy strawberries in the shallower section. The 5.5-inch section is perfect for a variety of flowers, shallow-rooted veggies and fragrant herbs.

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.
Your kit comes with everything you need other than soil and plants. Each modular kit includes ten of our food safe composite boards and five 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.
Alternatively using the composite boards and snap-lock stacking joints in your kit, you could assemble one 5.5”-high hexagon garden bed and one 5.5”-inch high square or diamond-shaped garden bed.
As your garden needs and expertise grow you can add on to your modular raised bed any time by purchasing additional tool-free kits, straight and curved composite boards and snap-lock stacking brackets to stack, extend or incorporate into the design of your garden or, by accessing our Design It All 3D Tool tool you can create a garden of your own unique design.
Did you know? You can grow up to 32 different plants inside your 4’ x 8’ garden using “Square Foot Gardening” techniques. There are countless books and online resources available to guide you in this rewarding method of gardening.
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:
“Our terraced garden is a ‘step above’ most raised garden beds because it has the flexibility to reconfigure or add on at any time. For example, if you’d like more growing area you can reconfigure this 4’ x 8’ two-level raised bed to a single-level 4’ x 12’ raised bed - increasing your planting area by 16 square feet!” – Anthony
