If you are a square foot garden fan, new to gardening, or wanting to expand your existing garden, check out the Greenland Gardener Raised Bed Garden Kit at Sam's Club. The perfect size at 3 1/2' x 7' so you never have to step in and compact the soil.

The kit is made out of recycled material so it won't decompose like wood and the price is right at around $40.

We bought one to add onto our raised garden collection. This is the fifth raised bed and we have learned to love this type of gardening. You can raise a wheelbarrow load of vegetables this way, because the plants are more compact and don't take as much room as traditional row gardening.

In our dry weather compact plants mean less water evaporation, and you aren't watering dirt where nothing is growing which means fewer weeds. A lot less weeds, because you add new soil to the bed when you start. Last year, I didn't pick more than five weeds - the whole season! We normally put down weed barrier since we placed the beds over grass. This kit comes with a black tarp to keep the grass from coming up and taking precious resources from your veggies or flowers.

If you have a 4x8 space that is yours, you now have NO excuse to not garden. Just try it, you'll like it! And no - I don't work for Sam's Club.

Here are some of the reviews online:

FANTASTIC product - I bought 4 of these last spring and stacked them 2 deep to make 2 beds, filled it with the square foot gardening soil mix and we are enjoying daily fresh gorgeous produce - with so little effort it is shocking to think how much work I used to put into my garden! highly recommend these. Looked at the other brands and nothing compares to the quality of this product that I have found. A tip though - get your ground level before installing. I didn't do a good job of this and wish I had.

I am single female and wanted to do a raised garden. This was so easy-no cutting - snaps together. very easy....in fact I'm ordering 2 more. can't wait for the vegetables to grow...

Put 6 of these together in very little time. They assemble easily even for those not very skilled in assembly - need to apply medium force to get some corners to go together. Excellent product - excellent price.
