The driving force behind creating BrinlyU was to create a medium to interact with people who enjoy making their lawns and gardens beautiful and that can appreciate high-quality, American-made products. To create a two-way communication channel for us to pass along information that’s valuable to you, and in doing so, come away with a better idea of how to develop the next generation of lawn and garden products. Your tweaks, your frustrations, your “what-if’s”–those are the things we want to hear about!
Periodically, we’ll also update the Survey page to ask specific questions that will help us get a better idea of what we’re doing well and what we could be doing better. We may even give away free products (like this 40” dethatcher) in return for taking the time to respond.
