For those that bought boxes from Sams Club last year

Post  milaneyjane on 3/23/2011, 8:15 pm

How are they holding up for you? I have three beds at single height and two stacked to double height. Mine are currently buried under 7 inches of snow, but I noticed by the end of last season that the ones that I stacked two tall were slightly bowed out in the middle---not enough to be much more than cosmetic that I can tell. I did notice that BEFORE the fresh snow came last night that the ground they were sitting on had shifted to the pieces weren't completely level. I still think for the price that it can't be beat and will purchase a few more this year.

Aren't they only 3 1/2 by 7 feet? I saw that and thought my teeny weeny brain couldn't handle that slight cut off.

They are a few inches shorter but for the price I was willing to compromise. I just plant the ones on the outside closer to the edge, LOL!

Sounds like a great deal. I have seen some odd-size boxes used as SFG's here on the forum. In the ones I saw, the grid was laid out as usual and then there were half or quarter squares, etc, along the affected edges. (Kind of like those neat pockets created when cinder block is used as a box border.)
