Gardening is such an enjoyable pastime but unfortunately for many, it can be very hard on knees and backs and it can be very challenging for anyone that uses a wheelchair or has reduced mobility.
These raised height planters are a great solution, they help you find a comfortable position that makes gardening easy. They have a sloping front that makes them wheelchair friendly or easy to use when seated. The tall ones allow you to garden whilst standing so there is a solution here for everyone, even for kids who love getting their hands dirty.
There are five fixed height options
They are made in the UK from a unique 100% recycled plastic material that looks like wood but is completely maintenance-free. You don't need to paint, varnish or sand it. It won’t warp, discolour or decay and it's not affected by frost, insects or fungus.
For bespoke orders for larger/taller planters, or addition of heavy-duty castors, please email us via our contact us page for a personalised quotation.

Review: Mark Lane, Garden Designer and BBC TV Presenter, Gardeners World
"A lovely part of my job is trying out new products, and I was delighted when I was asked to review the accessible raised planter from The Easy Gardening Company.
The planter came pre-assembled and is made of 100% recycled plastic material that looks and feels, a little, like wood. Being plastic it will not rot like wooden planters, nor will it need to be painted or treated in any way.
I tried the version that is 80cm high, which worked perfectly for my manual wheelchair. I was able to get my legs underneath, but the deeper section of the planter did stop me from getting right under. That being said, the planter is a manageable size and I can reach all of it from a seated position. The deeper half of the planter means that you can grow taller or larger plants that need a deeper root run – also perfect for vegetables, such as corn on the cob or small fruit bushes.
I planted mine up with a mix of bedding plants, Dahlias, Aeoniums and a perennial Salvia. The planter is lined so compost does not fall out of the bottom or between the gaps. The liner does, however, allow water to drip through so that plants do not sit in water and rot. Just a couple of months later and the planter has become a vibrant addition to the garden. When the time comes, I will take out all of the plants and re-plant the planter with autumn- and winter-loving plants, such as Sarcococca, Primula, Polyanthus and evergreen grasses.
This really is a great addition to the growing number of planters designed for all abilities and ages. It is sturdy, well-built, easy to use and a great addition to any outdoor space. It is extremely heavy, so I am unable to move it around – perhaps a version can be made with lockable wheels – but the weight does mean that even in strong winds the planter stays upright. Good for you and good for your plants."
