About Hydrobuilder.com

Located in Chico, California, Hydrobuilder.com was started to provide a one stop shop of competitively priced, quality products backed by a knowledgeable staff of passionate horticulturists. Chico is a great city with a strong sense of community. We are surrounded by almond orchards and home to one of the largest municipal parks in the country, Bidwell. We are lucky to call Chico home and it’s so important to us as a locally grown business that we give back and stay connected to our community.

Our History

Our first order was on October 31, 2011. Since then Hydrobuilder.com has rapidly grown to become the number one online retailer for all of your indoor and outdoor gardening needs. Hydrobuilder Founder and President, Justin Marshall, started the company and turned it into the top, one-stop shop - a complete online hydroponic gardening center. As he was searching online for hydroponic equipment for himself he noticed a lack of options and professionalism in this niche industry. Having worked for years at Build.com, the largest online home improvement store in the U.S., he was able to take that business model and apply it to Hydrobuilder. Justin knew that having the top product lines, a fast, user friendly site, and top-notch, knowledgeable employees was the key to the success of the company.

Giving Back to Our Community

We are dedicated to giving back to our community! We feel we have a social responsibility to support families in our community and we hope to inspire others to do the same. We love Chico, and staying connected through community service is something Hydrobuilder is very passionate about. Here are some acts of service we have taken on:

Chico Creek Cleanup

Bidwell Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the world and every Spring we take the team out to help clean it up! Luckily every year we notice less and less trash and hope when the members of our community see us out there they are inspired to do their part too!


The holiday season is the best time to give back. Hardships can occur to anyone at anytime and the support of the community is imperative to our wellbeing. We encourage anyone who is able to, to give back to those in need, especially around the Holidays. It’s not about the gifts but the feeling that your community cares and is there to support you through your hardships.
