With the coronavirus ensuring that we spent more time in our homes and yards than ever before, home renovation, DIY and gardening has never been more at the forefront of our minds. But in a crowded marketplace, it can be challenging to know which brands to choose to get those home and garden beautification projects done right.

The Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Awards demonstrate which brands have earned the trust of Australians. For the 22nd year, Reader’s Digest has commissioned an independent survey, in which we approach ordinary consumers to ask their opinions on what brands of products and services are important to them.
