This product is very easy to work with and very quick to install. I have a typical garden about 16' X 10' except that one corner has the telephone and cable towers located in it. I was able to easily construct an angled corner so that for any service needed at the towers the technician would have easy access. You can see the angled corner in the photo.
I ordered 8 of these anchors. A couple of the plastic pieces broke off when placing them in the ground. I found that they were not very strong too. I ended up pulling them all out and finding another method. I would not recommend purchasing these. Go with right angle metal brackets or straight metal brackets instead. Nothing to go wrong with traditional materials
I had bought a set last year and I liked them so much that I bought another set this year. I put together my box without any help in a less than a half an hour.(I am a senior). I expect to buy more sets as I continue my vegetable garden project. i like the fact that it is flexible for anyone's choice of design. Unlike most things today ot is not flimsy and a really good value.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Stylish, Great Quality, Good Shape
I bought 4 (2-Packs) Enough to make 2 rectangles or an Octagon. These joints work with 2X8 dimension lumber as well as 2X6. I used 8 footers because they fit in my car. This is a very economical way to start your raised bed gardening project.
These joints are very clever. You screw the joint onto the end of the composite FrameItAll boards (or any 2x6 board), pound the anchor stakes into the ground and then just slide the joint over the stake to create you border. You can use the stacking joints to add multiple levels for gardens, playground areas, etc. We used the first level to hold back a few inches of ground since we had an uneven surface and then added a second level to hold the wood mulch. I read other reviews and definitely agree with one thing - if you have rocky, very compacted soil it works best to pound a 1" metal stake down a bit deeper than you need the FrameItAll stake and then remove that stake and pound the FrameItAll in its place. The plastic stake will take enough of a beating to get it into softer ground or a premade hole, but they break when trying to drive down into rocky soil. Also, plan for a couple breaking during installation if you have hard soil and order an extra set to save yourself time later! My only complaint on quality is that the 1" screws that are provided with the joints easily strip out the composite timbers if you're not careful when you're screwing them in. If you use a power drill (recommended) instead of a hand screwdriver be careful not to go past the tight point.
Pros: Multi Use, Easy to Install, Functionality, Good Shape
I am extremely impressed with these anchor joints. They were easy to use, and they make my raised beds look great. I ordered 6 packages, along with 6 packages of the support joints, and none of them were damaged when they arrived. I would recommend these to anyone making beds or sand boxes.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Shape, Durable, Strong, Sharp
Bought these and the 'stacking joints' last year to make a raised bed garden. Just now have it completed and starting to plant. I used treated 2x6's cut to 4' lengths. Worked well, easy to screw together and went together fairly easily. The ground was wet and somewhat soft so hammering the stakes into the ground went ok. Unpacking and making sure everything was there, assembly, and putting it in place took a day. (8'x16' garden) It is really a neat idea and I have neighbors wanting to do the same now that they have seen the finished product. I had garden soil delivered and dumped in and I'm ready to go. I highly recommend this product. I do think the screws could have been a bit larger and longer, but the ones that came with the product will probably work ok.
These were easy enough to install, but the caps are the only thing that holds the brackets down. The cap clicks into the peg. The screws that hold the brackets to the wood are very soft and very short, maybe a half inch. They are fat screws, too. I did not feel they held well at all to the brackets and they stripped easily. There are only 2 screw holes for each bracket. The anchor piece is long, which is nice. My main complaint is that the caps are the only holding factor and if the cap is not on, breaks (in my case), or pops off, than the brackets lift up and you have an uneven raised bed and not a sound structure. I purchased them because of the price, but I wish I spent a little more money and got metal corner brackets. Corner brackets are hard to find. Raised beds are becoming more and more popular, fortunately. FYI a 2 x 6 x 8' cedar board was priced about $14 and the same treated pine board cost about $5. I am leery about having treated wood next to vegetables, but it was more affordable to me.
Along with four stained 2X8 inch boards the Anchor Joints make a perfect raised bed. We built a 4 foot by 4 foot square garden bed so that we could put a Frame It All greenhouse on top of it next year. Now we feel comfortable buying another one to build a triangular garden bed or an irregular four-sided garden bed. If you want a garden bed that you can reconfigure later into a different shape, this is the one for you. It looks very nice, not flimsy either. It feels like we could break it down a few years from now and re-use the anchor joints in another bed. Stain the wood a color that is similar to the color of the anchor joints.
I purchased two sets of these joints and four 2"X6" boards to make a simple raised bed garden frame. I was able to easily assemble my frame by following the directions provided. The joints are sturdy, with a hinge that allows you to fashion the shape you want. You can also make the sides higher by stacking another set of hinges and boards on the bottom set.
The anchors went into the ground without a lot of fuss; I had my garden bed assembled in about half an hour. So far the joints have weathered the elements without cracking or other signs of strain. I liked them enough to purchase a second set for another raised bed.
Excellent product that does exactly what it says it can do.
These were used with composite 2X6 boards to frame a vegetable garden. They have worked well so far, with easy installation and a tidy appearance. Durability is the question, and the holding power of the stake is open to question, being only a foot long. I went with this to secure the composite boards to try to avoid high water from floating away the raised bed frames (my garden is in a flood plain, and I am tired of having to reconstruct it!). Of note, don't put the stakes in too deep, as the caps snap onto the top of the stake, rather than into the hole on the bracket.
