That is a cool idea. And they look nice, but I was wondering if you really needed all that depth for growing, or just to get the dirt up to working level. That's a lot of dirt if you only need half that for growing.

For use it was for working hight at the start and then when we saw how big the tomatoes got and how deep the roots went and then when we started carrots and potatoes we really started to appreciate the depth. I don't think it is a waste. Also the soil settles prey quick, it goes from the brim down 6 inches each year.

Interesting, thanks.
I guess a good root sytem makes for a strong plant. And all that dirt would hold the moisture longer.

That and I just use the tanks included drain which means water doesn't build up but it does't drain out quickly either. Think the have them 2x2x4, 4 long, 2 wide, 2 deep. I would still rather have these that away I know I have the space for anything from carrots and lettuce to potatoes, watermelon, to tomatoes and corn. The can handle them all. Better to buy the containers once and then not have to worry about it. The also have them bigger around, but we wanted something we fouls easily reach across from one side.
