|Aloha, My name is Maile. I work @ a senior condo and am trying to find "elevated" planter boxes - about 2' x 4'ish width x length, but tall enough so that they don't have to bend over - so about waist high. We previously had concrete w/rebar and is cracked and broken and do not want a repeat of that. The planters will be on an open air outside deck, constantly exposed to the elements. Any suggestions (with pictures) greatly appreciated. We are in Hawaii, so shipping costs are often prohibitive. Mahalo nui loa!|

|Maile, I'd highly recommend Earth Boxes www.earthbox.com They are about 1ft. x 3ft. made of UV resistant, recycled plastic and I have mine sitting on cinder blocks to raise them up so I can use them without bending over. They are excellent.
Many people use them just as regular planters, but if you make use of the covers and self-watering system (as per the instructions included) they are also extremely water-efficient and the best producing system for growing veggie's I've ever used.
If you explain your circumstances, I'll bet the good people at Earth Box will make you a good deal on shipping. In fact right now they're offering free shipping on orders over $100. Watch for their sales and other promos.
