    Promising review: "I have lacrosse players and dogs and this stuff is amazing. My yard looked like an abandoned lot before this and it literally 'grew anywhere' just like it said.

    It can actually chop up 16 bags of leaves so they fit into just one bag!

    Promising review: "I have two very large red oak trees in my yard and they tend to dump a lot of leaves all over my yard and my neighbor's yard. Before this arrived, I blew them into a pile awaiting the shipment so I could mulch them up. I previously had a mulching attachment for my line trimmer and it wasn't that great, but it did the job. In comparison, this was far better. It had rained the morning before I tried this out, so the leaves were wet, which made the work a little slower than with dry leaves, but it still worked. It did get bogged down one time, but I was overfilling the bag when it happened, so it was partly my fault. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a mulching vac." β€”Matt Hamilton

    Get it from Amazon for $88.58.

    4. An electric lawn mower for keeping your lawn perfectly manicured with minimal damage to the environment. It's cordless and even comes with a trimmer.

    The Home Depot

    Over 1,000 Home Depot customers have taken the time to give this lawnmower a five-star review!

    Promising review: "We are an elderly couple needing to buy a new mower. When looking to buy, ease of use was most important to us. The thought of no more trekking to get gas, oil, and no more 'winterizing' the mower in the fall is made us look into an electric mower. We are GLAD we did. This mower has serious rear wheel self-propel. Hubby and I got the hang of it quickly. Saves our backs not having to push so hard. We have decided this is a wonderful mower, easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store." β€”craftykn

    Get it from The Home Depot for $508.

    5. A handy hose holder to keep the cords organized and out of the way.


    Promising review: "We bought this to organize our pressure washer hose that we have hooked up in the garage when we aren't using it. It keeps the hose out of the way and isn't an eye sore. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to keep things tightly and neat." β€”Sharie L DeRousse

    Get it from Amazon for $13.40.

    6. An outdoor garbage can because it's functional, cute, and makes keeping the lawn clean easier than ever.

    Promising review: "These are so great for what we wanted! Fits 33 gallons really well and is very attractive on the deck for recycling. Bought three, very happy! And after lots of rain, they were dry inside." β€”TAnnie

    Get it from The Home Depot for $54.

    7. A storage shed where you can tuck away recycling bins, sports equipment, and large tools.,

    Promising review: "Good quality. Easy to assemble. Parts are individually bagged and labeled. Holds two 32-gallon round barrels β€” which is what I wanted it for. Very compact, which was a factor for where i had to put it." β€”Joe in Brooklyn

    Get it from Amazon for $319+ (available in two sizes). Also check out a similar shed in several sizes to find the right one to fit your space and needs.

    8. A large garden dustpan because you've gotta put all those leaves somewhere once you've raked them up. This will be much easier than struggling with a trash bag.


    Promising review: "I am 74 years old. I could never hold a leaf bag open AND get the leaves in it. I can now rake the leaves up on the flat collector and use both hands to dump them in the garden bag. I then carry the bag to a back corner of my property and dump them in a pile to eventually become compost. Works like a charm!" β€”Ruth

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $28.95.

    9. And a durable rake that'll stand up against the toughest lawn messes. The grip turns tacky when wet so it won't slip out of your hands when you start to sweat πŸ₯΅.

    Promising review: "This is a great rake! Great price and very sturdy. Comfortable grip and handle. I’m 6’7 so the handle is long enough even for my wingspan but not so big that my wife can’t use it easily as well (she’s 5’9). Would definitely recommend it." β€”Guy Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $39.98.

    10. An effective grill cleaner because life was better before the food caked onto your grill. This will remove it all β€” without all the scrubbing.

    Promising review: "I tried six different products before trying this one and by far, this is the best one of all. I am the type of person who prefers cleaning the grill immediately after grilling. It loosens the debris off the grates easily and comes off easily. I like easy practical cleaning without the need to spend much time scrubbing. Try it, you will not regret it." β€”Fmcasado

    Get it from Amazon for $18.50.

    11. A can of concrete paint to tidy up stained garage floors and refresh your driveway. Trust me, it's little things like this that'll make a world of difference.

    Promising review: "I'm not a lazy person normally, but when it comes to cleaning my bathroom, I can find just about any reason you could think off to do it another time. It got so bad that I went on Amazon looking specifically for a power scrubber. I received this kit and immediately got the cordless drill out. Think power waxing but in the bathroom!" β€”DJ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70+ (available in six colors).

    13. An eight-piece set of gardening tools because sometimes all it takes to tidy up your flower beds is a little TLC. This comes with everything you'll need to get the job done, and includes a tote for easy storage.

    A reviewer's tools in the set

    Promising review: "Love this set! It can be used by an inexperienced gardener and experienced one. The pieces are sturdy and the wooden handles make it look even better. The spritzing bottle comes wrapped and with a small wire bowl, making it seem like a little gift. It also has extra room for more tools, a drink, seeds, etc. The only issue with this set is that the hose inside of the spritz bottle bends, it is a little too long for the inside of the bottle." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in two colors).

    14. An instant stain remover spray to knock out the mold and mildew building up on your patio furniture. Just spray it, wait a few minutes, and wipe it off.

    Promising review: "I have a small three tier water fountain in my patio, naturally the birds in the community have come to rely upon it for drinking and bathing. I literally sprayed this product and walked away, I actually left it on overnight, I got busy with other tasks. When I checked back all of the mold was gone, everything, with no damage to the painted stucco wall or cement and no scrubbing literally spray and leave." β€”Mark

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in four sizes).

    15. A hand weeder for those with small gardens who don't need anything too big. This'll get the job done for under $20.


    Promising review: "I hate me some weeds folks. Hate is a bit of an understatement. This little gadget has been my sidekick this year. I have pulled a lot of stuff from the ground with this baby. I'm happy with my purchase and it has held the test of time in my yard that can't catch a break from the rain." β€”CH

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    16. A detail mini power scrubber to get into the dingy nooks and crannies of your house's exterior and clean them in minutes.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. I used this for the grout lines, and I used the corner attachment for corners. It was amazing. It got gunk and grime off the grout that has been there for years. I even used these to scrub the cabinet doors, around the toilet, etc. and they were really, really great. You have to put the right amount of pressure on the brush, but once you do, it's *wonderful.*" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    17. A green wheelbarrow that can hold up to 200 pounds of dirt. Believe me, you'll appreciate its weight capacity once you start landscaping., Amazon

    Promising review: "This cart is something I bought to help me with garden cleanup β€” something to carry pulled weeds, leaves and small sticks to a central location for dumping. I also use it to carry dirt or mulch bags. I also can use it for carrying potted plants to and from various locations. It's great to be able to pull the wagon instead of having to carry heavy bags or things that spill out of your arms. I tried to assemble it myself but did need some assistance. It took about two hours to put together. Granted, somebody who is more adept at putting things together probably could do it faster. I wished that I could buy it somewhere local and already assembled. However, that wasn't an option. So, this was fine. Luckily we did have all the washers and nuts that came with it (some folks have said they were missing items). The only thing that I don't like was that the handle was so stiff that it made pulling it and turning it difficult. I used some WD30 spray on it and that helped. I may have to loosen the parts that hold this together as it's still a bit tight. Overall, I'm pleased. It works for what I wanted. I feel that it's pretty stable. The handle is strong and the tires are good. So, what's not to like? It does the job." β€”Sophie Shopper
