Return & Refund Policy
About Cancellations, Returns, & Refunds
The EarthBox® gardening system, EarthBox® Staking System, EarthBox® Garden Stand, EarthBox® Automatic Watering System (AWS), and all related EarthBox®-brand parts are guaranteed to be effective and free from defects for up to 1 year from the original purchase date. The refund applies to the product purchase price and NOT the shipping and handling. The policy also does not cover the packaging or shipping cost, incurred by the customer, to return the product back to our Lancaster, PA facility. Certain items may require a restocking fee of 15%. All EarthBox®-brand products must be returned to our Lancaster, PA facility. In order to return non-EarthBox®-brand products, please email us and tell us what it is you are trying to return, and we will provide the proper return address.

We'll do everything we can to accommodate the customer's request, but please keep in mind that our order-fulfillment and shipping systems are designed to get orders on their way quickly and efficiently. Therefore, we cannot change or cancel an order once it has entered the shipping process, which is usually just a few hours after the order has been placed.
