What our customers are saying

Not only have we been enjoying the great herbs and veggies, everyone who visits just loves the planters. We make sure to tell them the excellent customer service we received from Riverbend. Everything we planted thrived. 

I am already planning the veggies to plant next year. Thank you for the great planters!


What our customers are saying

This is amazing. I've wanted to start my own garden for a while but never had the space or the means of building something for myself. I found these guys on Facebook marketplace and am super pleased with the outcome. They came out to take measurements and chat with me about what I was thinking about and where to place my garden box then custom made one for the space I wanted, even accommodated according to the slop in my yard so the box was balanced. The price was reasonable and treated the wood and stained to the colour of choice plus delivery! 

My first garden is thriving! I recommend these guys to all my friends and others interested in starting a garden or needing a custom box.

What our customers are saying

After moving to a smaller place, I was missing my garden, so I started looking for planters at the big box stores. Everything I saw was imported or made from plastic pieces which I knew would quickly break and go into the garbage. I found Riverbend online and found their design both appealing and practical, as well as reasonably priced. When I made a mistake ordering (I mistakenly ordered 1 instead of 2) they were very gracious and got me my second planter within a week during a very busy time period. We are very happy with our A frame planters and know we will enjoy them for years to come! Thank you!
