[Costco] Vita 4’x4’ raised garden bed - $109.99 (30$ off)

Costco has lowered the price this weekend for the Vita raised garden bed. It’s a 2-pack. Probably won’t go this low until clearance.

Sale has been spotted at many Quebec locations

Upvoted; thank you, OP.

Anyone know whether this is true in YYC/Alberta? I just picked up a couple yesterday @ $129.99. I’ve had my eye on these but couldn’t wait for them to go on sale again.Loudly Crying Face Still cheaper than HD’s $144 for a single Vita unit w/ same dimensions (Costco’s price is for a 2pk).

Seems on the pricier side, no? What's the benefit of this vs. cheaper options?

Still seems pricey. Planning to do a DIY one with home depot supplies. Hopefully not too hard.

Yes ask home depot to saw it for you, mailing takes minutes. How much does a piece of lumber and box of nails cost these days?

Mailing might only take minutes but it will cost a fortune!

I presume I can use something like this to grow things that don’t require deep roots?

Reviews are pretty bad. Seems flimsy and wont hold soil well without bulging on the sides. The white vinyl set seems much sturdier for similar price

I built two 10'x4' ones with some 2x4's I had lying around. My boards were 12' long so I cut them down to 10' and 4'. The 2' leftovers I used for vertical supports for the 10' sections. I stapled landscape fabric to the bottom. It was very simple.

The tools and materials I used were.
2½" deck screws
Staples and a staple gun
Landscape fabric
Impact driver
Sawzall (can use a handsaw, circular saw, chop saw, etc)
Measuring tape
Carpenters square

Two rolls of landscape fabric were about $30, staples are $5, and deck screws were $10 for 100.

The most expensive thing is wood, and I'm not sure what the cost is for that. But all the other materials are relatively inexpensive, assuming you have the tools already.

I'm not a professional, and am like 0/10 of capability of building things and I had no issues. Would definitely do it again.

Anything cheap that's pressure treated. I used old boards that came with house and were under the deck.

You can use cedar if you got $$$$$.

Mine isn't a show piece it's a box full of dirt.

Treated wood for a garden? I don't think that's a good idea.

I just built planters last week to plant some vegs. I used cedar and wouldn’t use pressure treated for planters.
