They are easy to set up and relocate. You can change the size of shape of a bed as easily as moving furniture.

Lean them inwards a few degrees and they're stable.

If the corners dry out too fast or leak too much soil, cut up a heavy plastic bag (from potting soil, peat moss or manure) and line just the corners below soil level.
