I recommend you to check if the components are locked into place properly and structure is rigid enough. Make sure there are no protruding screws or sharp edges. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with sandpaper. You can adjust the size of the raised garden bed to suit your needs,

PRO TIP: Apply several coats of paint or stain over the components, in order to protect them from decay. Check out the rest of the project to learn more about building garden projects.
