Quality comparison
We use NO Ramin wood from the endangered Rain Forest or elsewhere. Neither do we resell Wood Products produced abroad. ALL of our Wood Products are made in Pennsylvania from kiln-dried Native Wood.

An e-mail from a potential Customer:
asking how competitors can sell Wooden Garden Products cheaper than GardenGrapevine.com does.

It prompted us to get a cheap "Bluebird House" 
for comparison. This is what we discovered:
"You get what you pay for . . . maybe less"

We welcome and encourage product comparison.

The Bird house on the left is indicative of the Quality found in all Wooden Garden Products made and sold by GardenGrapevine.com

* The competing "Bluebird House" on the right has a meager
3-3/4 x 3-7/8 Floor  (Maybe they have skinny Blue Birds).

* The Floor corner ventilation holes are not cut at a compound
angle (to help evict predatory Larvae).

* The boards have knots which would be rejects at out shop.

* The Roof and Back are glued up from 5 or more waste strips.
(with indoor glue, we assume)

* The small Roof does not cover all 4 sides which invites rain.

* The Screws are 1-1/2" indoor type.
(not the 2" Galvanized ones we use)

* The door hinges are exposed nails which will rust.
(Our Hinges are made of Brass and Concealed)

* The door sticks and is hard to open;
Ours have steel Spacers, creating a Super-Smooth door.

* The door is held shut by a nail in a drilled hole inviting rust and 
rot. (We use an Outdoor Vinyl Latch)

* Theirs weighed a mere 3 Pounds, 14 ounces.
(Ours weighed 6 Pounds, 12 ounces)

* There is no sanding of any sharp or splintery edges.

* They do not treat their Bird Houses with a clear Sealer and 
Weather-proofer, ready for you to paint your favorite color.

* They do not have a Lifetime Guarantee.

* There is no information included on how to best hang it and care 
for it and its occupants.

"Price is not determined on the day of purchase;
but on the day of replacement."
