Yes a little effort required but looks great

I had concerns about having to drill the holes but it was relatively simple although a bit of effort. It looks really good in the Garden and I would recommend the product.

Good quality sleepers with straight cuts. But this was all the preparation. Self assembly means drilling all the holes yourself. Requiring a special drill bit and precision. For the price I had assumed self assembly would have meant just putting the bolts in the holes. Might as well have purchased the sleepers myself for a fraction of the price. Purchased several forest items in the past and had expected a better product. Disappointed.

Excellent quality

This is the 2nd forest raised sleeper bed that I have bought. I am very happy with them. They are excellent quality and I managed to put them together ok on my own. Delivery was quick and good to be able to select a date. I was contacted before with a time of delivery; the guys were great. Thank you!

Raised beds

I ordered 2 but was disappointed to find they did not have pre drilled holes and as I’m a single older lady I had to pay someone to do this. They said ready to assemble I presumed I would be able to do this myself but had no drill

forest wooden raised bed

Good quality planter, seems sturdy enough for the job. Already purchased one from another supplier earlier in the year- so knew that it was robust, but these were £10.00 cheaper each.

Not pre-drilled

After researching for some time I ordered four of these planters. The delivery team were prompt and efficient.The wood is of good quality and the completed planters look good. Although the description said self-assembly, I had assumed that the holes for the bolts would be pre-drilled as the bolts were provided. The description said nothing about needing to drill the holes so I was disappointed to find out that I had to do this. This has made the process of putting them together a long one as it has taken almost a day for each one. I also had to buy an extra long drill bit and have already had one snap inside the wood. The description should have made it clear that the planters were not pre-drilled.
