traveling sprinkler that'll water your entire lawn as it goes along its merry way.
Promising review: "With four acres, we were always moving sprinklers. Now I drink ice tea on on the porch, and watch it move itself. My grandmother had one of these, and when saw it I knew I needed one. The best thing is it's still made in the US, and cast-iron."— Digby

A pack of
landscape edging that doesn't require you to dig to get a clean edge on all your garden beds.
