About Sadler Garden Collections
Sadler Garden Collections is a small family-run business based in Buffalo, NY. We specialize in handmade vinyl mailbox posts, house number signs, and other wood and PVC garden products.
As we have grown, our basement, garage, backyard, and two trailers have become work and storage spaces for an endless production of exciting new designs.
Supporting an artisan-run business like ours means buying high quality, hand-crafted items that you won’t find anywhere else, and customer service that has been praised in many testimonials.
Made in Buffalo, NY
PVC is our material of choice, and owner Pat Sadler has been designing and building mailbox posts and other garden products with it since 1993. Most of our vinyl shapes are extruded in Buffalo, NY.
The material we use is a fence and railing grade PVC designed for strength, durability, and continuous outdoor use. When PVC is made, its main ingredient is resin. Two other very important ingredients are impact modifier, which helps to keep the product pliable, and titanium dioxide (or TIo2), which is a UV protectant that prevents the sun’s harmful rays from damaging the finish.
Some of our products are made from darker colors that are textured and variegated, offering customers variety and the opportunity to match their house and trim.
When we purchase our raw materials, they are already in long extruded form, so we have to cut to length, and fabricate them.
PVC has many attributes that make it a wise choice:
- It’s virtually maintenance-free; the occasional wash is all that’s required to make it look like new again.
- It contains recycled material.
- It never needs painting; it’s colorfast.
- It does not rot, rust, bow, twist, cup, splinter or split – all the issues that are prevalent with wood.
- It is impervious to insects.
- It will last indefinitely. True, it may cost a little more than wood or other materials initially, but because of its longevity it’s the best value on the market today in the long run.
