Hi there! Thanks for the question. I like making garden boxes 24" high so it is easier on your back when you are working on them. I am an avid veggie gardener myself and I have experimented with dimensions for ergonomics in comfort while working on them. I make them 4 ft wide so you can reach half way across from either side. Length can be any dimension depending on your space; usually 6 ft to 12 long. These are 10 ft long. Have fun growing veggies! If you are in the area I am hosting my 4th annual "Life in the Alamo-Danville Garden" garden tour fundraiser on May 3rd. See my website for more info. You can see this veggie garden first hand since it is on the tour.
