Ok, Somewhat disappointingThree of the composite boards arrived damaged, but I was able to make do. I pounded one of the first stakes into the ground slightly crooked. While trying to straighten it out it snapped in two. I haven't filled it with dirt yet. Hope it stays together.
I consider this my "starter" bed. If I can make it work for a couple of seasons I will be happy and then hope to replace it with something else. Perhaps even going so far as hiring a local landscaper to put together something professional looking.

Good Quality Kit for Backyard GardenI purchased just the Corners KIt and purchased lumber at my local home improvement retailer. The kit is made of good quality materials. As other reviewers said, the stakes that you pound into the ground are plastic, but are high quality plastic and help up well to being pounded into soil.
The construction took me about 2 hours, but I installed it on an uneven piece of and, so I had digging and leveling to do. The screws are a little short, but they did the job as the brackets we securely attached to the lumber I used. I used 2x6x8's and had them cut in half.

4 X 8 Raised Bed SystemI ordered this a little over a month ago and received it very quickly but did not open the boxes until today (Feb. 1). The discription stated it had composite lumber but I received Cedar wood instead. Either type of material was fine with me, I just ordered the less expensive one. The bed goes together very quick and easy all that is needed was a drill/screw driver. The screws could have been a little longer but they work. I attached all the end brackets in about 15 or 20 min. and was not in a hurry. Putting the bed in place was very easy also. Used a mallet, level and square. The stakes that are placed in the ground are made of heavy duty plastic and very durable. I was worried I might break them when pounding them in the ground but I had no problem. If you use landscape fabric you'll need to provide your own. The second level went up in minutes and was very easy. I haven't placed soil in the bed or planted anything yet so I can't comment on that yet. The materials and assembly are very good and if I need another raised bed in my yard I will buy this again.
