Home and garden: Tests and services

DLG-awarded quality

In the rapidly expanding home and garden sector, manufacturers need to convince consumers of the quality of their products – preferably by having them tested by experts. DLG tests focus on the parameters that count for customers and provide reassurance at the point of sale.

Whether at DIY stores, garden centres, agricultural dealerships or grocery stores, products awarded the DLG quality seal are the ones that catch the eye. The outstanding quality of the tests and the high profile of the awards make sure of that.

DLG tests reflect typical uses and provide at unbiased and independent results. They are developed by impartial testing committees and are based on the latest scientific findings, modern testing methods and a multidisciplinary network of experts from science and practice. The product-specific test criteria are defined by the DLG test engineers based on practical relevance.
