    31 Best-Selling Yard And Garden Products From Target That Are Popular For A Reason

    No matter how green your thumb actually is, your yard is sure to give you a thumbs-up for trying to keep all the weeds and bugs away.

    1. A weed preventer to stop those pesky weeds from growing for three months, but it won’t kill your flowers, fruits, vegetables, trees, and shrubs.

    Model using yellow container of preen weed preventer

    Promising review: “I heard about Preen from my son-in-law and tested it last summer in one area. It was so incredibly successful that, this May I spread it throughout all my landscaping. I have not had one weed in three months! Seriously! Now, I admit I likely overdo it — probably buying more/spending more than the directions dictate. I carefully sprinkle every single inch. I have had no problems getting it fairly close to my hostas and other landscaping plants. Yes, you must have the spots completely free of weeds first. This is a weed preventer, not weed killer. And, I'm careful to put it down when I know we will get rain within 24 hours. Let me tell you, it works! I don't have time to weed during the summer and this was SOOO worth it!” —Grannienoweeding

    Price: $12.99.

    2. A mosquito repeller made by Thermacell (and evaluated by the EPA for safety and effectiveness!) so your precious skin is not attacked by those bloodsuckers. This gadget will create a 15-by-15-foot zone around you, like a bug-free bubble.

    All you have to do is carry this around and ignite (quietly) as needed. It’ll also repel black flies and other biter-type insects.

    Promising review: “We took this on a four-day camping trip to the Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota. It worked wonderfully! A quick note, shut it off and leave it outside of the tent. The fumes continue to linger for a while after it's turned off.” —Seth

    Price: $24.99.

    3. A plant-based ant-and-roach killer for pests found inside and outside the home — because ants might kill your outdoor harvest. It’s made out of essential oils, like lemongrass extract and pine tree-derived geraniol.

    A spray can of Raid Ant & Roach Killer

    Promising review: “I love regular Raid, but with a baby and a small dog around, I wanted something that I wouldn't have to worry about them licking off the floor. It does have a citronella smell to it, but it doesn't bother me. (I didn't find it as strong-smelling as some other reviewers.) This works great for the few bugs lurking around my house (silverfish, spiders, ants, and those nasty house centipedes!). Would recommend!” —Rachel

    Price: $7.49.

    4. An all-purpose plant food because your plants need to eat–and eat well! This Miracle-Gro can be used on vegetables, trees, shrubs and houseplants every one to two weeks.

    Promising review: “I bought this and have been using it for about a month now. When I moved into my home two-and-a-half years ago, there was a yucca. Both summers, it never bloomed. I have been using the Miracle-Gro weekly and it’s finally starting to bloom. I've never had a yucca before and I can't wait for it to bloom. I have been using it on my lilies, rhododendron and hydrangeas, as well with amazing results.” —MrsBlack25

    Price: $6.49.

    5. An innovative AeroGarden for growing herbs, lettuce, tomatoes and more that will help you figure out when to water and how much. Basically, it’s for newbies who want homegrown produce.

    Promising review: “My mother-in-law purchased this for me as a Christmas gift last year and I was so excited to set it up. It was my first time growing herbs indoors, so I was a little nervous, but everything sprouted and continued to grow well! I think I could have placed the herbs with more thought- I sandwiched thyme between two basil plants and it never took off as well as the others did. I've just received my new seed pod kit and can't wait to improve my previous results!” —lindseylindsay

    Price: $119.99.

    6. A utility wagon with side straps to transport things all around your yard. Think: bags of soil, plant feeders, watering cans and more. And the best part is, you can collapse this handy carryall when not in use.

    Promising review: “I am super impressed with this brush killing formula, as well as the dispersal system. It has a very easy trigger and I did not get finger-fatigued or hand cramps in application process. I used on a few different areas, some woody brush, and some pernicious vines that just would not stop. The BioAdvance Brush Killer cleaned both areas up quickly. I will definitely recommend and purchase the concentrate refill for future needs.” —RAAZ

    Price: $13.99.

    Promising review: “Affordable planter that is cute too. I water from the top and use the bottom as an overflow section, so I can't speak to the self-watering abilities, but I like that I don't have to worry about drips from overwatering.” —Target reviewer

    Price: $6.99+ (available in six sizes and four colors).

    Promising review: “We live on the outskirts of the city but not quite in the country. We have woods surrounding us. So, that means we have spiders everywhere and I am terrified of spiders. I used this product and I have not seen any spiders in over three weeks.” —earthkind reviewer

    Price: $6.99.

    16. A weed killer that also controls new ones from growing. Use it on driveways, sidewalks, patios, along fences, curbs, retaining walls, and edges of lawns. It comes with a Comfort Wand to help you spread the... weed death.

    Model using handled-container of Weed Killer with a black wand

    Promising review: “I use this product at my business. Nothing kills weeds better or longer than Roundup. With a steep bank covered in rip rap, weeds are a constantly occurring problem. Roundup takes the worry out of weed control. Very satisfied with the product!” —Businessowner131

People driving by have stopped many times to ask me how I get my yard so green and without weeds and tell them all about Scotts because I can’t personally take the credit.” —Jarhead

    Price: $23.99.

    Promising review: “This is my first time gardening. I have two raised beds that we partially filled native soil then added Miracle-Gro garden soil to one and when we went to get more they didn’t have any so we bought a different brand. The Miracle-Gro bed did great and the other nothing grew. I even fertilized the sad looking bed. I will get more Miracle-Gro and hopefully fix the other bed.” —Nancy

    Promising review: “It may sound crazy to say this over something as basic as a sprinkler, but this is an excellent design. My hat is off to the designer, whoever he or she may be. I use this to water my garden from outside the fence. I can control spray height, the width of spray pattern (on each side!), and the angle of spray. It’s fully customizable. I can target the water allocation with minimal waste. Not only that, it’s lead-free, and most sprinklers are not. Imagine spraying your organic garden (or your children!) with lead!” —Happy Grandma

    Price: $21.99.

    A green framed greenhouse with clear windows and shelving

    Promising review: “This greenhouse is really a good deal for the price. There are lots of pieces, so allow a day or so. The day I was ready to assemble it, the weather got windy and rainy, but I was able to use that time to pre-assemble the door, window, and a gable, so the actual assembly of the greenhouse didn't take nearly so long, and I didn't have to risk the weather holding out so long. Once assembled, it is quite sturdy, and after anchoring, I think it might just withstand our West Texas winds and sun.” —Kathy c

    Price: $419.99.
