Authors comments
The garden planter on legs makes it possible to garden without back pain. It is easy to keep the container free of weeds and pests like snails. The frame and fabric can create a mini-greenhouse.

A raised board that children can stand on is available as an accessory. Shelves mounted on the sides with wood screws are also available as accessories.

To replace the soil, one end of the bottom can be dropped down.
