Lee Valley has great service. They are very prompt in answering emails and phone calls. They have (mostly) great products and prompt shipping.

I've done business with Lee Valley for 15+ years. I've bought garden tools, woodworking tools, hardware, toys, etc. Their products are great, and their service is, too. The only downside is that their shipping is pricey.

P.S. Last weekend I did a search for Felco pruners for a friend, and as it turned out, Lee Valley had the best price I could find anywhere on the web or in brick&mortar. Plus they have spare parts.

I have been shopping there for years and most of my garden tools are Lee Valley's. In 2002 we bought a weeding tool in May which stopped working in August. We returned it for a full refund, not a credit note. The next year they no longer offered this defective item. Wow. Our watering system is 7 years old and works beautifully. They continue to carry the small connectors that occasionally need replacing. If we want an unusual gift for a niece or nephew, we know where to go. We are not yet grandparents but we tell all our friends who are expecting or have grandchildren about the unique projects Lee Valley carries for making items that will last forever. My only peeve is that they no longer sell the best gardening jeans ever made. I have gained a bit of weight and can no longer garden in comfortable, cool jeans that have pockets and loops everywhere.

I've placed many orders with Lee Valley over the years, always positive. I usually am buying gifts for my husband - but last year splurged on the maslin jam making pot for myself. It was a joy to use during the 2006 canning season!

I had requested a catalog from Lee Valley Tools ltd. and couldn't wait to place an order. However, when I checked the prices on the website I had a rude awakening. Every item had an increased price from $ 3-5 for most and one had jumped $ 30. I had a stroke. So I emailed them and told them how disappointed I was that I wouldn't be sending an order because of the across the board raised prices.

I just received my second order from Lee Valley. I had gotten an item from them (self-watering windowsill propagator) before and liked it so much wanted another one.
The price had gone up in the 2 yrs. since so I had been hanging back. Luckily for me I got an email around Xmas that for a limted number of time regular items were shipped free.
That was just the "nudge" I needed to order it. It arrived this morning, in fine condition- as expected, Happy to see they still have the fine service.
I am a hybridizer of streptocarpus and if they had more items geared toward my particuliar needs I would certainly be ordering more items. I recommend them highly.

I absolutely LOVE Lee Valley and learned about them in 2001 through an online review about a Brill Lexus reel mower (which they no longer carry). WOW ~ am I glad I found this EXCELLENT merchant!! Their pricing for this item was literally 1/3 less than what "competitive" e-tailers offered at this time; so, naturally, I ordered this wonderful "silent mower" with its grass catcher from Lee Valley, in addition to a handy pruning set, Gloves in a Bottle, and a couple of their outstanding rakes (i.e., Power & Rock). For the price I might have paid elsewhere online for the mower alone (without its grass catcher), I also purchased the other products previously mentioned and still use them today (weather permitting, of course).

I have ordered a number of times from Lee Valley, from their gardening and also their hardware catalogs and have been extremely pleased. Our latest purchase was a pair of small, inexpensive binoculars for our newly acquired habit of birdwatching. Great price, great shipping, great products. Very, very pleased and recommend them often.

I placed an order by e-mail and wanted to add an item to it. I called Lee Valley Tools and the woman I spoke to was friendly and helpful - she added the item and also gave me advice about which tool to choose. My order arrived quickly and I was happy with the quality of tools. They have a nice selection of tools and I will be ordering again.

The majority of what I've ordered from them has been woodworking tools, but I've ordered a few gardening items and the quality of what they sell is consistent across both areas - great! One of my favorite companies to deal with.

You just can't go wrong with this company. Take a look at not only the gardening tools, but also their other stuff. If you like to do art in the winter when you're not gardening, here is the place to go. They have things you'll need that I have seen in no other place. Shipments arrive promptly. A fun website to browse through, a great company to deal with.

Lee Valley Tools has an interesting assortment of items, reasonably priced, quickly shipped, and durable. I'm delighted with a new hoe, pair of loppers, and a pretty good pair of inexpensive binoculars. I've ordered from them in the past, will do so again, and continue to recommend them to people I know.

I love this company. They have some of the best quality garden tools. Mailorder is great. A visit to one of their Canadian stores is a pleasure (they're so efficient!) Their catalogs are well-designed. What a wonderful place.

I ordered a row cover kit/hoops, shade cloth, and netting stakes from Lee Valley's website the last week of January. My order arrived within a week (I live in PA). Everything was quality and packaged well. I was really impressed. I found their prices to be reasonable and I will definitely be ordering from them again. Additionally, I thought their website was easy to navigate, a feature many garden supply companies overlook when hoping to increase their sales with web order capability.

it is a wonderful place to visit too, they have an awsome new building filled with so many special items, we often stop in to sight see and to shop of course, thankfully we live a few miles away from it so spending isnt an issue yet.

I found this company through dave's garden website. I have already placed two orders online and everything was of good quality and the delivery was very prompt. I liked how they kept me informed of the order status, even providing the tracking number. A very wide selection of items too. I'll definitely be ordering again.

I ordered some circular trellis' and 2 inground potholders for the garden. Great stuff! High quality, excellent customer service, box packed well, and everything arrived one week within ordering. I'll be ordering more from them today. They deserve the great customer rating.

Great company with very informative catalogs. I've always gotten good service from them and would give them a positive rating except for one small thing. Their online prices are from 35 - 40% higher than their catalog prices. I love to shop online, but with this company it's better to order by mail from their catalog. Check it out for yourself. Get their latest catalog and go online and compare prices. I don't know why they do this, but I found out the hard way.
On May 5th, 2005, sundog7 changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
Apparently Lee Valley has prices in several currencies on their website. I must have been looking at the prices in Canadian dollars. The prices in the catalog do indeed match the website prices when viewed in the same currency.
I wholeheartedly recommend Lee Valley Tools. Their selection of quality products is unmatched.
Sorry about that, Rob.

I have ordered twice from Lee Valley and I am very satisfied with the items ordered.The catalog descriptions are totally accurate and the shipping costs were lower than those of US companies closer to my home.Not only that but the shipping times were amazingly short.They have the absolut best selection of hard to find garden tools and equipment at excellent prices I have ever seen anywhere,on-or offline,USA and even Germany where I am from.I wish there would be companies of that caliber selling cars or insurance.

Always excellent items and of superior quality. The shipping is always fast, and have never had a problems with any item ordered, and trust me there have been lots of orders placed. We don"t have LEE VALLEY, locally - so I always am using mail order - I have ordered on line and also using the phone.....both have been great. I look at LeeValley before anywhere else, since I know this is quality items that will last.
