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!
Caralyn and Dave are the ultimate pair and so incredible to work with. From the very beginning, they were super responsive and helpful with all my questions and worked meticulously on every step of the process to make my vision come true. I came to them with a tall order as well! I needed a very specific custom build to fit on a balcony, and they were totally up to the challenge.
Caralyn was always available to set up meetings, forward designs, and discuss quotes and schedules, and Dave was the ultimate builder; he was precise and flawless in coming up with a unique product to fit my very particular needs. He’s also even more of a gem in person!
On the day of delivery, he spent a whole Saturday afternoon putting everything together, and you could tell that he put a lot of pride into the work – the end result was so beautiful!
I would definitely recommend their company to anyone looking to add the highest level of care and dedication to their project.
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!
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.
Definitely a five star company ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So easy to deal with from start to finish and what a finish, I am delighted with my planters.
This was a custom job with each planter having to fit in a specific space and nothing was too much trouble.
It's so refreshing to tell someone what you are looking for and it just happens.
I would highly recommend Riverbend Planters if you are looking for solid, quality planters and live anywhere in the Lower Mainland.
