Have been shopping here for many years. They are our Go To place for immediate lawn, garden, hardware needs. For big items, the big stores. But when we want to get a project done without a lot of time spent parking and wandering or waiting in line, this is our spot.

Employees are slow, rude, and incompetent. It took twenty minutes and four employees to sort out why an item rang up for twice what it was marked, and the cashier accused me of having moved the item myself. Prices are high. Store is poorly organized. Service is provided grudgingly, employees seem confused or annoyed when asked to cut glass or make keys, Try Best Value on Bayview or Meadowbrook at the other end of Little Creek if you are looking for alternatives to Lowes or Home Depot.
Tips & Advices
Outdoor watering cans often are specifically from materials that are more resistant to weather variables--i.e., with a protective coating that prevents moisture corrosion, or prevents the handle from getting extremely hot in direct sunlight. Indoor watering cans are usually made of lightweight plastic, although they can be made from all sorts of other material, from stainless steel to porcelain. They often fill a more ornamental function, while the outdoor watering cans are for ongoing hard work.
A trowel is much smaller than a spade--it has a short handle and is meant to be used at knee-height or even closer range to the plants and soil. A spade is a type of shovel with a long handle and a sharp metal blade--usually much flatter than a normal shovel.
A pick mattock has at its head an adze and a pick, for breaking up hard-packed soil and debris. The cutter mattock has an axe blade on one side of the head and an adze on the other. It’ s better for digging up and cutting through roots.
The best type of shovel for gardening is a garden spade, ideally used in conjunction with a hand trowel.
The essential supplies for gardening are mostly basic, inexpensive non-motor tools. Essential tools consist of a sturdy pair of scissors, a trowel, a pair of pruning shears, at least one shovel, and a hand fork or a hoe. Also, a gardener must have a functioning hose—hopefully one with an adjustable sprayer nozzle. There are also kneeling pads for gardeners, which can help prevent knee and back strain If you are going to compost, you’ll need a compost bin. And to protect all your items from rain, make sure you have some sort of shed or enclosure. Finally, you should have a pair or two of heavy-duty gardening gloves.
