Orcaboard?

Post  Mr. Green Jeans on 4/2/2013, 11:42 am

I see raised bed garden kits from a manufacturer called "Orcaboard" - but I can't seem to find the actual company. orcaboard.com doesn't work properly. Does anyone know if the company still exists & how I can reach them?

Thanks!

IT looks like their website is simply down for maintenance.

Here is a review.

Yes, I thought that too, but it's been like that for over a month.

Home Depot has some cedar raised beds (4' x 4' x 7") for about $40, and one that has an extension for about $80. I was thinking of getting one, but I'm just going to buy the cedar and build it myself.

It looks like Orcaboard is owned by a company called Durable Plastic Design LLC, located in a suburb of Seattle. Here is a link to the BBB that has contact info.

I have a feeling that Orcaboard is no more. Sad
I checked the phone # from Dave's listing, and got that fast-busy signal that suggests the number's out of order. The website leads to an error message about some program the website uses, and searches for the name "Orcaboard" and "Durable Plastic Design" didn't get anything much. Green Products.info seems to carry these, http://www.greenproducts.info/Orcaboard_Raised_Garden_Bed_Kit(Multiple_Sizes).html], and Amazon lists the kit as "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

Well, if anybody cares, they are in fact out of business. Green Products confirmed it & said they hadn't gotten around to taking it off their website yet. Thanks for the help folks.
