Review Boards

We know that finding trustworthy advice online can be difficult—the internet is full of misinformation or personal opinion masquerading as fact. To make caring for your home and garden easier, we launched The Spruce Gardening and Plant Care Review Board and The Spruce Home Improvement Board, comprised of licensed and certified field experts. Our goal is to provide you with well-researched, fact-checked information so you can keep your home and garden in its best possible shape.
