1.An outdoor drink stakes set to securely hold your glass of lemonade in a safe spot. No more setting your soda on the grass only for it to fall over on the uneven ground, get kicked accidentally, or be invaded by ants.
2.Some vented wine covers so you can let your freshly uncorked cab breathe without it turning into a swimming pool for bugs. The covers are weighted so they won't blow away at the slightest breeze.
3.A box of mosquito-repellent incense sticks for warding off buzzing blood-suckers within a 12 foot radius for up to 2.5 hours. They're made with rosemary, peppermint, citronella, lemongrass, cedarwood, and bamboo so they won't offend your nose.
4.An LED bug-zapping lamp because it creates a 500-square-foot pest-free zone so you can finally enjoy your patio again. Shoo, fly, don't bother me indeed!
5.Or a more stylish mosquito-repeller lantern that'll create a 15-foot skeeter-free zone *and* blend in seamlessly with your backyard decor. No more dinners and strict outdoor aesthetics will be ruined by mosquitoes and ugly lanterns.
7.A set of powerful solar-powered disc lights to illuminate any dark spots in your backyard. The lights are waterproof, automatically turn on and off, and provide up to 10 hours of bright light.
8.A soil test kit so you find yourself with a bountiful fall harvest instead of staring at a dead vegetable garden and wondering where you went wrong. This lil' hand-sized gadget will tell you your soil's moisture and pH levels as well as how much sun you're getting.
9.A pole chainsaw for trimming dead limbs and branches *now* instead of cursing yourself *later* when the weight of snow and ice causes them to fall and damage your house.
10.Or a 28-inch lopper because it'll give you a bit more control (and an arm workout!).
11.A handheld sharpener that'll transform your dull shears into a tool that can actually cut instead something that just smushes the stems. You might be surprised how well your garden tools work once you sharpen them.
12.A zero gravity lounge chair if regular outdoor chairs make sitting comfortably near impossible. The design of this seat helps improve your posture while reducing pressure on your body so you can chill on your back porch for hours without pain.
13.A pair of leaf scoops to ~re-leaf~ your knees and back when you're tidying up your garden. These are great for picking up leaves that fall after a heavy rain as well as cleaning up dead leaves in the fall.
14.A portable 92-inch movie screen so your family's outdoor movie night isn't ruined by the little one in the back whining, "I can't see the screen!" It's lightweight yet sturdy, large enough for everyone (and probably the neighbors) to see, and reviewers say setup takes mere minutes.
15.A bottle of Yard Odor Eliminator for when your puppy has a bad habit of always peeing on your outdoor furniture. This spray gets rid of poop and pee smells on furniture, swing sets, dog kennels, walls, grass, plants, shrubs, and more.
16.A standing weeder because the worst part of gardening is having to kneel for hours plucking weeds. My back hurts just thinking about it! Thankfully, this tool has three steel claws that grip weeds and roots so you can pull them out while standing.
17.A gutter scoop that'll spare you from getting your hands scratched and dirty removing dead leaves, animals' nests, and mud.
18.A GutterMaster if your own personal nightmare is climbing up a rickety ladder and shoveling wet dirt and rocks from the gutter. This telescoping water-fed pole measures 12 feet long so you can stand comfortably on the ground while this does the hard work of loosening clumps of leaves and pine needles.
19.Or a debris-grabbing tool that attaches to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. Its wide paddles deftly collect leaves that are clogging your gutters.
20.A nut collector you roll across your backyard so you can quickly gather tree nuts, acorns, and even fallen fruit before they start rotting and without ever having to bend down.
22.Some plant cover because you want to safeguard your garden beds from hungry critters, strong sun, or cold weather (depending on where you live!).
23.The FrogLog, an escape ramp you put in your pool that'll save the unfortunate critters who might otherwise drown.
24.A garbage guard if there's always a cloud of flies hovering around your outdoor trash cans. It sticks to the inside of your garbage can and releases an odorless vapor that prevents buggies for up to four months.
