Five Green and Glorious Lawn and Garden Deals to Kick off Spring
Why we love this deal: A hundred bucks might seem steep for a wheelbarrow, even knowing that's the price at 58 percent off -- but this is no ordinary wheelbarrow. It is designed not only to transport dirt and leaves around a backyard, but to double as a dolly for furniture or other bulky items. It has a 300-pound capacity with a profile designed to fit easily through doorways, and included accessories such as extension arms and mesh straps make it easy to move a range of difficult items, such as potted plants or large rocks weighing up to 80 pounds.
Why we love this deal: This deal from Amazon ships free with an Amazon Prime membership, which translates to a savings of $15 off the next lowest price online from Walmart. This lightweight yet powerful trimmer offers all the convenience of an electric trimmer without the pesky cord, and a 40-volt battery means plenty of power to handle even the most stubborn weeds. The manufacturer claims a half-hour of run time, but some online reviewers say they get 45 minutes or more -- plenty of time to handle the jungle cropping up in the places a mower can't reach. A three-position pivoting head converts easily to add utility and convert this trimmer into a walk-behind edger, and the charger gets gardeners ready to challenge weeds in just an hour.
Why we love this deal: This clearance deal from Sears works out to just $1.25 per light, and is $25 cheaper than buyers will find at either Walmart or Amazon. Solar charging means these accent lights come on when the sun goes down to avoid inflating electric bills. Save even more by choosing in-store pickup.
Why we love this deal: This is a perfect low-key accent for a backyard after the sun sets, and the built-in solar charger on this LE product means this 53 percent-off Amazon deal might just pay for itself by saving on electric bills.
Why we love this deal: This clearance deal from Wayfair provides a subtle way to camouflage those indispensable backyard amenities that you don't need to be advertised, such as air-conditioning units, recycling bins, or that brush pile that just refuses to decompose. It's $81 and ships free by UPS or Fedex Ground.
