Hi, I’m Monica Hemingway, Editor of the Gardening Products Review. Welcome!!
I started this website to help gardeners chose the best gardening products for their needs. In searching the web, I often wasn’t able to find the kind of objective reviews I wanted. There are some excellent sites out there for gardening information (such as Garden Watchdog, which evaluates mailorder companies), but no high-quality, centralized location to find product reviews. So here it is – everything you wanted to know about gardening products, all in one convenient website.
You should know that I (and all of our reviewers) write reviews based on my own experience with the product. If I (or our testers) haven’t used it, I don’t review it. And my reviews come from over 30 years of gardening experience, including many years designing, installing, and maintaining gardens of all types for clients across the country. In fact, all of our testers have extensive experience in horticulture, arboriculture, landscape maintenance, garden design, and more.
I try to be as objective as possible. So, when a manufacturer sends me a product to trial (usually for free), I make it clear that I will write only an honest, unbiased review. If that’s not ok with them, I send it back. And many of the products reviewed here are things I bought myself for my personal or professional use. I disclose the source of all products in each review.
In the end, this website is for you. Tell me what you think.
