1. A watering can so cute you'll be extra excited to reach for it when it comes time to water the herbs and flowers you planted.
2. This rectangular patio umbrella that'll shield your outdoor seating from the sun's intense rays — you won't be left jumping up in pain the next time you burn yourself trying to sit down on a chair that was sitting in the sun all afternoon.
3. Or a canopy to provide shade over spaces in your yard where a patio umbrella just wouldn't do the trick.
4. A set of six solar-powered torches that will, of course, fill your space with a ~beautiful~ glow, but will also light up the walkway from your back door to your backyard so you don't accidentally trip at night.
5. Or this set of six LED pathway lights you'll probably want to own more of to light all the darkest corners of your yard.
6. This four-piece wicker furniture set so your whole family can relax comfortably and enjoy the evening air.
7. A nine-piece set of gardening tools because it's about time you flex that green thumb of yours and get ~growing~ on that backyard garden you've been saying you wanted to start.
8. This bug zapper that'll attract and zap bugs that fly near it because the mosquitoes are coming and you deserve to stand on your back porch for five minutes without being bitten several times.
9. A set of four motion sensor lights you can mount pretty much anywhere in your yard so you can see where you're walking when you're outside at night.
11. An insect killer with natural ingredients — like cedar oil — you can spray around your yard to decrease the number of fleas, mosquitoes, scorpions, beetles, and gnats that may be lurking.
12. This expandable garden hose to help you reach all the areas around your yard that your current, standard hose can't. It's super lightweight and can actually extend from 17 feet long to ~100~ feet long.
13. A garden dump cart that'll assist you when moving around large amounts of dirt, rock, and other materials. It has a 600-pound capacity and easily tilts to dump.
14. This leaf blower/vacuum with a built-in mulcher. The angled snout of this blower makes it soooo easy for you to reach under your outdoor deck (and other small spaces) and suck up hidden leaves.
15. A handy, dandy turf spreader so you can quickly and easily distribute seeds and fertilizer across your lawn — doing it all by hand would just take all afternoon.
16. These outdoor drink stakes that'll securely hold your can of sparkling water in a safe spot. In other words, you won't have to worry about your drink accidentally getting kicked over or being invaded by an army of ants.
17. A rechargeable, waterproof cooler light if you're tired of freezing your hand off looking for the right drink.
18. This camping hammock with built-in netting you can set up right in your backyard for those times when you wanna take a quick nap outside but don't want mosquitoes terrorizing you.
19. And a storage shed for protecting the things you don't want to get wet after a rainstorm or don't want being blown out of your yard after high winds.
