The shed arrived quickly and was relatively easy to put together. It has been up for more than a month and I am happy with my purchase. The price was significantly less than local stores and the included delivery saved me the expense and hassle of renting a truck (although did need truck for lumber to build the base). I would rate 5 of 5 except that the part numbers in the instruction book did not match the part numbers on any of the hardware. While this was not a big problem, it did make the assembly more time consuming as you had to measure and re-label all of the bags of screws and bolts (there were quite a few bags of hardware). Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend.

I recently purchase a Earthwise Cordless Blower. While the produce is lightweight, it also has "lightweight" performance. The blower is neither forceful nor strong. It is a good tool to use if you are blowing leaves out of a confined space as not to disturb your vegetation or plants. But to use the blower to blow leaves off the driveway or the yard, it is not useful.

We bought this electric snowblower after the first Kentucky snow. It has already paid for itself. We have a rather wide-aproned driveway plus a circular driveway and were able to remove snow from both those and our sidewalk in one hour. We would have had to hire someone to remove the snow if we hadn't bought this snowblower and we would already have paid more than we spent on this wonderful tool.

I ordered this for a gift so I don't know how it works but she was really excited about it and had never seen one like it. Wish I had ordered one for myself!

This is an excellent pruner, I am originally from Canada and you can find these in almost every nursery. When I moved in Lafayette IN, I couldn't find these anywhere...so I ordered them online. I love this pruner, I owned a few and what I like about it is you can buy the blades separatly and change them when they are not good anymore. Excellent product.

The Radius Garden Tools are ergonomically correct, and easy to use by either a man or woman. I bought 2 sets of tools, one for my Green Building and the other for Home. When hung on the wall, the tools look like works of art, rather than garden tools. The quality of the Radius Tools are exceptional, and at least equivalent to items I have purchased from designer Garden Sources. I would recommend any one of the collection without reservation.

I recently purchased this product. I am very satisfied with ths purchase, ive used all the attachments. I love the lockable extension handle, its what makes this stand out from your regular hand gardening tools. It gives you leverage and makes it easy to use all the attachments. The shears are extremely sharp and can cut 1 inch limbs with ease. I know your probablly not supposed to cut 1 in limbs, but I did and it cut em. The shipping was fast and i used tools imediately. If your tired of using cheap garden tools that you replace every year, youll be glad you bought these I think this might be the last time I purchase hand garden tools. Yes there that durable. One Happy Customer

I have an old aluminum shovel with a long handle that suits me very well after snow storms. The smaller head and lighter material means that I don't attempt to lift large amounts of snow (I am a 5'4" woman in her 50s). The long handle means I don't have to bend over. I could not find a similar shovel at any local stores. On the Internet these shovels were priced similarly to others and if I bought two I was able to take advantage of the free shipping. I left one at my folk's house and gave the other to my daughters. Now there will always be an nice light tool to use at whichever house I happen to be. These shovels don't have the slightly flared shape that mine does but I was willing to try them anyway as I didn't see any others that do.

Pretty much as advertised - with two caveats. The small rake can't do much of anything, and the spade can bend in tough, clay-rich soil. Overall still a good value for the price, though.

Received this set about a month ago and have used it often. I like it very much. The set is very well made and compact. It feels weighty and strong when used and each item gets the job done for both my inside and outside gardening needs. I would recommend this set.

Great for shoveling snow, easy to use and handy tool. Would recommend to anyone who doesn't like to shovel all that snow!

Nice shovel; high quality. Haven't been using it very long, but it looks and feels like it will last a long time!

We were really pleased with how easy it was to schedule delivery and get this item delivered close to our doorstep. After we got it, there were a lot of little parts to keep track of that looked intimidating. But really, it wasn't difficult to assemble and is a very good, sturdy and weather-proof storage option!

Since the poor things arrived, I havd not stopped using them. They have taken the abuse and stayed sharp and easy to use. Love them

This line of garden tools are fantastic. Shovels are sharp and dig into the earth with ease. Round handle is easy to use and no sore wrists. Purchased trenching shovel and fork too.

we just finished assembling the shed, and so far it seems fine. It looks very nice. The directions were a little confusing in places, and some of the parts lacked proper labeling. For the price it seems to be a very good product. we did put it on a concrete slab for a foundation and I think that will make it last longer. Overall we are very happy. It shipped out very quickly

I bought this mower because I hated starting the gas powered ones and didn't want to drag a cord around the yard with me. This arrived fairly quick and was easy to assemble. I love the 1 lever that controls the level of the blade/wheels. I have a large yard, so I never expected that it would get done in one battery charge, but at least it gives me a break in between. This mower is fairly quiet for a yard tool...kinda sound like a little vacuum. The only part that I do not like is that the hole to the bag tends to get clogged a lot and I have to constantly tilt it up to unclog the hold or srape off the underneath as the cut grass sometimes likes to gather. otherwise, this is great for me. I would probably recommend getting a second battery if wanting to get a large yard done in 1 day.

In May 2013 I put a hot tub in the yard for my wife. Come October she said she wanted an enclosure around it for the winter. After much research I selected the Palram Silver 8x8-foot Snap and Grow Greenhouse and purchased it from Overstock.com. Shipment was quick and the package arrived in good shape. but note that it is heavy for one person. You may need help moving it around. I rated the quality as good. There was no lack or defect but you get what you pay for. There are much more expensive models out there that may be of a higher quality but at a much higher price. I rated value as excellent, judging it based on price and quality for the price. This is not a real cheapie piece of junk. This is a well designed product for the price. I made a base for the greenhouse out of 4" X 6" X10 foot pressure treated ties cut to the 96.5 X 96.5 inch specs in the plans. It is square and level, sits on my concrete block patio, and should provide a solid base for the greenhouse. I would not consider buying this greenhouse unless you plan to put it on a solid, rigid, square and level base. It is too light to just sit on the ground. Because we were building this around an existing hot tub it complicated the build just a little and may have taken us a bit longer. I would say allocate 8 hours and two people and you should have no trouble finishing the job in that time. If you have any experience with building stuff, two people can probably finish it in 4 hours. I am quite impressed with the design and engineering of the kit. Things go together well and the structure, is quite strong and rigid. Mine has only been up for a few days but we are getting 15 mph winds today and the building is not visibly flexing at all. The plastic panels flex and rattle a bit but that is to be expected. The fit of the doors is not quite right yet, but that may be due to a need for some adjustments. I think we will be able to improve it. While the assembly is not hard, I would not recommend it to a first timer to assembling a kit. At least one person needs to have some basic understanding of construction of kits and how things go together. My daughter helped me and we both characterize this as building Ikea furniture but on a bigger scale. If that sounds too hard for you, then get some help. Assembly requires a minimum of two people as there are times when one has to hold while the other places parts in place or puts them together. Or one needs to be up high and the other needs to hand parts. Definitely use silicone spray as recommended in the instructions as some parts are very tight fitting, which is good. On a few occasions we found a rubber mallet helpful to get that last little bit to go in and seat properly. And be sure to follow the sequence exactly as presented in the manual. All parts are well marked so you should have no trouble matching up pieces to the instructions. While not absolutely necessary I would recommend having a sheet metal seamer tool like this one. http://www.harborfreight.com/6-inch-jaw-straight-sheet-metal-seamer-98728.html. Some of the parts have thin edges and can get slightly dinged or slightly bent during shipping. Or, if you drop something, you can bend the edges making assembly nearly impossible. With this tool this was not a problem at all as this straightens them out quickly and easily. We did the build over two days of about 3 hours each, not including the building of the base. We stopped on the first day because the wind hit 22 mph and it started to rain. We got the frame up and the front and rear "glass". On the second day we got the rest of the panels in and finished the structure. Again, nothing hard if you have any building skills at all and you can follow the pictorial directions. As a greenhouse this should be an excellent product. However, because I am using at a hot tub enclosure I was not able to put in two braces that support the roof. Normally this would not be a problem but if I get a snow load on there the roof may be over stressed. So I am going to have to come up with a modification that will reinforce the roof. That is not a product defect or design defect. It is because I am using it for a purpose for which it was not intended. In areas where snow is not likely this might not even be an issue. I can't say how this will hold up over the years but based on my initial impressions I think it will do just fine. The plastic panels are quite tough and should hold up well to minor impacts like small branches or stuff being blown around by wind. We have already used the hot tub inside the greenhouse and it seems it is going to work very well.

My son assembled this shed in five hours. Said the instructions were a cinch to follow and the hardware was well labeled. However, it is important that this shed be assembled on a level surface otherwise the corners won't line up. The entire unit was secured to a concrete base using lag bolts at the corners for added stability and wind resistance. The shed has an aesthetically "quaint" appeal and is a nice addition to the backyard with neighbor approval. It shipped quickly (within one week) and arrived in perfect condition. Best of all you can beat the price on Overstock.com in comparison to the home improvement stores. Very good choice!

The first Arbor Day took place in Nebraska City, Nebraska, on April 10, 1872. It is estimated that one million trees were planted that day. The idea of a holiday celebrating trees took hold; by the 1920s, every state in the US had passed a law stipulating that Arbor Day be observed on the last Friday in April. In Nebraska, it's observed as a civic holiday. Planting a tree is the most customary way to observe Arbor Day, but there are other ways to celebrate, too.
