THey are really nice We have bad soil here and pocket gophers so the raised bed is necesary if you don't want your veggies eaten by the little buggers.
You can plant earlier and later in the year with the raised beds. and that one is nice so it brings it up for easier gardening especially for some one with difficulties getting around.
since it is so high up just fill it with potting soil or a combination garden and potting soil. you can get either some of the giant bags at your local garden center or go to a rockery and pick up a pickup load of soil.
be sure to use the soft loose type stuff as you won;t be able to rototill it.

The wroms will help keep your soil areated as well as adding their little contributions but you will definately need the tea too!
IT really is a nice set up especially for a city lot.
