How this works
All of the plants, tools, equipment, and products we write about are tested for several months at a time. Why? To make sure we can provide you with a completely honest and fair review. When we’re writing about garden hoses or sprinklers, we aren’t writing our reviews based on other people’s opinions.
We’ll take the garden hose and use it, see how it weathers, put it through a variety of different conditions, and record how it responds to certain situations. That’s how we do things here at Jardin HQ. We aren’t here just to give you some tips; we live and breathe gardening.
Keep in mind this is the approach we take for every single review and review we create on our website. Here at Jardin HQ, our biggest goal is to give you all of the information you need before you take the steps to start investing in gardening equipment.
We want to make sure all of your gardening adventures are as successful as they can possibly be. So, this means we’re dedicated to finding the highest quality (and most useful) products for you to invest in. At the end of the day, we want to recommend all of the tools that you need to make your gardening experience enjoyable, easier, and fun!
Depending on what type of product we’re reviewing, we have a multi-step review process. In general, here’s how we break down each of our reviews:
- If there’s a product or tool we’re interested in trying, or if there’s a tool recommended to us, we purchase it for a review. We don’t accept discounted items or items for free sent by the manufacturer, as this ensures all of our reviews are fair and completely unbiased.
- Depending on the product we’re talking about, we bring it to the appropriate environment to test out. As an example, a tiller will be used in dry soil, damp soil, and on rocky ground. We’ll also make sure to test it for several months, to get to know all of the ins and the outs of the product.
- While we’re testing out the tool, we create a daily log. In this log, our product tester writes about their personal experience, following along with variables that have already been determined.
- The person that’s testing out the product is also the person who writes the review. While we do provide our writers with support from our editorial team, the person that uses the product provides all of the thoughts, experience, and data inside of the article.
- We’ll update the article with any inquiries from our community as they come up.
Keep in mind, we’re here to help you out! We know how exciting it is to finally get a garden “just right” to where your plants are thriving and you’re happy. Whether you’re content with what you’re growing or you want to keep pushing to grow more challenging plants, we’re here to help you succeed.
