    1. A loveseat with cushions that's the perfect size for a smaller patio.


    Coffee table sold separately here.

    Promising review: "I love this patio set. (Bought matching set: two chairs, loveseat, and coffee table.) I wanted something that wasn't too big for this area of our patio and this set is perfect. Some others that I looked at looked so small and read reviews of men feeling like they were sized for children. My husband thinks this Keter set is very comfortable and he is 6'1" and 180 lbs. I like that you can sit on this without the cushions if you want in case they get wet. All four pieces took about an hour or a little more with two people to put to together. Overall, all good things to say! For the price, you can't beat it!" β€”Sally07

    Price: $121.63 for the loveseat; $42.99 for the coffee table

    2. A heavy-duty 24-inch charcoal grill, because those burgers aren't gonna cook themselves at all those epic BBQs you're about to host.


    Promising review: "This grill checked off all of the boxes. Low price. Easy to dump ash bin. Adjustable vents. Warming rack. Cast iron grates. Attached side shelf. Height adjustable charcoal tray. Ability to cook for 8-10 people. The only problem I had with this grill was during assembly. Make sure that the slots for the charcoal tray (on the left and right sides) are toward the back of the assembly. I assembled them swapped and had a heck of a time swapping them back. I also bought a Weber chimney ( one) and a wood chip smoker box. It takes only a layer of thin chips to thoroughly smoke meat. I am very happy with the construction and easy use of this grill. I would not only recommend this to a friend, I plan on buying a second one to use for parties." β€”Marcus

    Price: $88

    3. A ridiculously adorable wagon you can use as a planter in the summer and as part of your winter decor once the temps drop.


    Promising review: "I love this cart! Putting it together was a breeze. A bit of a challenge to line up the pre-drilled holes to attach the seat, otherwise no issues. I took the advice from other reviews and sprayed it with poly to seal it since it was going outside by my front door. Got some flowers and clay pots from the craft store and made arrangements to go in it. Lots of compliments. Ordered two for my sister-in-law, she loved it so much. Well worth the price." β€”JF

    $19.99 (available in blue, green, and red)

    4. A charming gazebo that'll provide a shaded space for your next backyard get-together.


    The gazebo is 8'x8' and includes the weatherproof top with a mosquito net-protected top vent.

    Promising review: "Perfect size for my patio. I live in condo and neighbors love it. Easy installation. Took my son about an hour. Well constructed. Very durable canopy. " β€”MaryEllen

    Price: $129.98

    5. A hammock, because don't you already feel more relaxed just imagining yourself lying on this on the perfect summer day?


    Promising review: "So comfortable! I bought this hammock for my husband for his birthday. It was a great price, came promptly and was easy to assemble. My husband was thrilled that he finally got a hammock! He is 6'4" tall and I was a little worried that the hammock wouldn't be long enough, but it fits him like a glove! The added cover and pillow is nice so you aren't constantly dropping your snacks through the rope holes!" β€”Colleen

    Price: $80.10

    6. A super-durable bounce house with a slide that β€” warning β€” might make it pretty much impossible to convince your kids to ever come back inside.


    Promising review: "My mom bought this for my daughters in 2009 when they were 1 and 2 1/2 years old. They are 8 1/2 and 10 now and they still use it. It has been used mostly indoors but it has seen it's outdoor days as well as a few birthday parties. I have played with them and it has held my weight (220lbs) plus a few kids jumping on it. The blower hasn't died on me, no cracks on the material of the bounce house, the mesh walls have withheld all the jumping and grabbing and pushing. I do fold it and store it back every time they're done playing, and clean it up when it's used outside. I don't leave it outside overnight either. Almost nine years old and it's still standing as if it was bought maybe a few months ago. My coworker has borrowed it a few times for her daughter's birthday parties, I have no idea how abused has it been, but it's still strong, still fun, and still bouncing. Best money my mom has spent, and my daughters have loved this bounce house since the day they got it and they still do." β€”John

    Price: $219.10

    7. A set of globe string lights for a fun way to light up your outdoor space in the evenings.


    Promising review: "We brought 10 set of lights for our patio... Those lights are just perfect to set the tone for a nice dinner, we are really happy with our purchase." β€”RosaB

    Price: $9.94

    8. A pretty little planter that'll be a beautiful accent piece and let you comfortably and easily create a garden where space may be limited.


    Promising review: "I have absolutely no complaints so far!!! Great purchase for the price. Everything is blooming in there! Maybe I have to check the drainage occasionally. Would highly recommend. Just had three days of really bad winds and storms, they stood up no problems, will get two more! Highly recommend!!" β€”schnubbi24

    Price: $36.99+ (available in white and green)

    9. An inflatable pool lounge that's so cheap you're probably gonna want to buy a few of them for your next pool party.


    Promising review: "I love this pool lounge float. I love the colors, I love how comfortable it is, and it even stands up to my boys (ages 8 and 5) jumping all over it. I especially love that I can dip my feet in the hole or keep them out, and the cup holder! Wonderful!" β€”MandiJo

    Price: $5.19

    10. Or, hey, perhaps step it up a notch with this giant inflatable camel float for extra points with the kids.


    Promising review: "This float is seriously as big as my full-size couch! I literally had to deflate the ring section to get it through my front door, but totally worth it! Want to float in style at the pool? Get this camel!" β€”Aimee

    Price: $35.55

    11. And if you don't have an in-ground pool, how about this inflatable pool that's as fun as it is affordable?


    Promising review: "Perfect size for my two little ones! Easy to set up and take down to clean! Definitely worth the affordable price!" β€”Awesome

    Price: $25.99

    12. A 9-foot umbrella so you can always have a shady spot to hang in when it's bright and sunny outside.


    Promising review: "I am super, super happy with this umbrella. Great quality and fantastic price. My husband and I were sure that this umbrella was going to be like the rest we have seen for $40: flimsy, poor quality, and super-thin material, which everyone says you get what you pay for but we took a chance and what a great surprise when we opened it and found it to be the fantastic. We know quality products like this that don't cost an arm and a leg are far and few so we even ordered another one!!!" β€”LivefreeordieJennie

    Price: $35.61

    13. A chic fire pit that's practically begging you to buy a jumbo bag of marshmallows.


    Safety mesh screen lid and fire poker included.

    Promising review: "Easy to assemble. Great quality for the price. The tiles are not individual tiles, but four ceramic 'tiles' as one piece. It's okay for now, but I might replace with individual and more interesting tiles at a later date. The fire pit holds quite a bit of wood and we like that it can accommodate pieces up to 24 inches easily." β€”Dawn

    Price: $84.97

    14. A deluxe doghouse so your pupper can enjoy their time in the yard too.


    The stairs can hold up to 140 pounds.

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh, my puppy loooves her new house! She just adores being out in the sun all day long, it's a hassle to get her back in, and I feel much better knowing she has this to rest/hide in. Not to mention how easy it was to set up! It only took me 30-40 minutes at the most. My dog didn't hesitate at the stairs, I was sort of worried about that, but she went right up them to check out the deck!" β€”Lisa & Lucy the Chiweenie

    Price: $99.99+ (available in three sizes)

    15. A best-selling swing set that's worth investing in, because it's about to become your kids' newest obsession.


    Promising review: "I have 5 1/2-year-old and 11 1/2-year-old daughters who love this playground. They both say that they no longer want to go to a playground because there is no point, they have one in there backyard. The directions could be a little easier such as having the helper pre put the screws into place to make it faster to screw in. Lunch and snacks have been eaten every day on the built-in picnic table. I would suggest this item to everyone and anyone β€”Β a great deal that has made our summer so far a blast. And I have saved a lot of money on gas not having to go to a playground all the time." β€”Clorya

    Price: $379

    16. A three-piece set with two Adirondack chairs and a side table β€” perfect for use around a fire pit or just to lounge on a gorgeous day.


    Promising review: "These chairs and table are great and the low price makes them even better. I was delighted to find chairs with a pull out foot rest. I wanted footrests but didn't want to take up room on the deck when they weren't being used, perfect solution. Assembly was very easy, had both out together in about 20 minutes. And they're very comfortable too, would definitely recommend!" β€”Beth

    Price: $141.96

    17. A splurgeworthy wicker egg chair that'll probably be making more than a few Insta appearances this summer.


    Promising review: "The chair was easy to assemble for me and I'm not a woman who does many projects around house. It looks expensive and it's very comfortable, me and my kids sit in it all the time. If you're taller like my husband, you might need to buy an extra pillow for head, luckily I'm just 5'4", so I don't. I like the fact that the egg is light color; most of these eggs comes only in dark. Great purchase." β€”Analia

    Price: $299.98

    18. A garden scooter to make tending to all your greenery much easier, even down the narrowest of garden paths.


    The scooter features a removable kneeling pad, a pull strap for easy transport,

    8.5 gallons of storage, a cupholder, and a lid.

    Promising review: "This is the third garden scooter I have owned over the years, and in many ways it is the best yet. It is lighter in weight than previous ones, has a pull rope, is very sturdy to sit on, and has a generous capacity for tools, gloves, etc. I'm very happy with it." β€”Rainbowsender

    Price: $29

    19. A three-seat canopy swing you'll want to spend all your lazy summer weekends on.


    Promising review: "Purchased this swing in store, took less than an hour to assemble. Did not attach the canopy because it's under a covered porch. Very comfy ands seems quite durable. Kids love it, wife loves it, very happy with this purchase." β€”Matt

    Price: $187.98+ (available in red, teal, and beige)

    20. A tiered fountain topped with a pineapple design that'll instantly make your garden look glam AF.


    Promising review: "Bought this for my mom's house! She is 95 years old and loves to watch it in the garden. The sound is very relaxing! Have to refill it once a day, but it I already knew that. Very easy to put together. I think the bigger they are, the harder it is to attach the hose. Only 3 feet tall, but perfect for us. Received it very quickly! Great purchase!" β€”Lynette

    Price: $119.99

    21. A three-piece set with two chairs and a table so you can comfortably dine al fresco all season long.


    Promising review: "This is an excellent piece of furniture! Very well made, easy to put together, reasonably priced, and looks fantastic! It is so much prettier than the pictures. If you are thinking about buying this item, just do it β€” you will love it!" β€”SunLover

    Price: $139

    22. A beach-ball sprinkler sure to become a hit at your little one's next summer birthday party.


    Promising review: "This is wonderful, the picture doesn't do it justice. I picked it up at my local Walmart and set it up that night for my toddler β€” she loved it. It is very easy to assemble, and the flow of water is much better than the picture they have on the preview. Trust me, your child will love this." β€”AvaLovesToShop

    Price: $15

    23. An outdoor/indoor rug that'll tie all of your patio or yard furniture together.


    Promising review: "Love all the shades of blue in this rug. It looks great on our patio, very soft underfoot." β€”Debbie

    24. A wicker bar cart so you can entertain with ease and make "rosΓ© all day" a reality this summer.


    Promising review: "This was a hit! Better than expected for great, low price. Very attractive, easy to assemble, and super functional. The hanging glass rack, ice bucket and deep pocket areas for bottles and utensils work perfectly! Wheels allow easily movement and it has become a mainstay of our outdoor entertaining! Really love it!"

    Price: $124.09 (available in brown and gray)

    25. A convertible outdoor sofa, because honestly, what's the point of having a yard if you can't lounge out there on a couch all day?


    The wooden sofa is made with weather-resistant spun-polyester fabric and polyester fiber batting cushion filling; it holds up to 550 pounds.

    Promising review: "For the price I can't believe the quality. Solid wood, thick cushions. It went together pretty easy and took me 10 minutes by myself. As soon as the weather gets warmer, I will protect with some polyurethane. The frame is brown as it matches my wicker brown table, but it is a black brown. Very comfy and nice, glad I found it." β€”Kellster32

    Price: $249

    26. A raised garden kit that'll make all the neighbors ~green~ with envy when they see the fruits of your labor.

    Promising review: "I purchased one box in store. After realizing the amount of seeds I purchased to plant I needed a couple more boxes. I purchased two more online. I've always done a few veggies in pots, with not-too-good results. I'm more of a flower gardener and not too successful with the veggies. Realizing after growing the veggies I planted in the boxes last year that more space was the key to my growing success! The boxes worked out great! I purchased two more boxes online for this year's planting season, which arrived a week ago, and can't wait to get started! My seedlings are waiting!"

    Price: $28.99

    27. A charming solar-powered wooden lantern to light up your space in an eco-friendly way.


    Promising review: "So far works well. Rugged looking as opposed to pretty but works well with all dΓ©cor that I have. Very pleased." β€”frannier6

    Price: $22.87

    28. An outdoor bench for a minimalist accent piece that'll provide extra seating or a place to dry off after a dip in the pool., Walmart

    Price: $99 (available in red and tan)

    30. A wicker storage box you can use to do double duty as a seat or table.


    Promising review: "I don't have a very big deck, so this was just what I was looking for to store my three chair cushions β€” and I made a cushion for the top also for extra seating." β€”ssnena

    Price: $39

    31. And a gorgeous planter that'll lend a pretty pop of color to your outdoor space.
