Weekend deals: Get the tools you need for spring yard cleanup now

Last Updated May 2019

Officially, there’s still about a month remaining of winter, but it’s not too early to start thinking about spring and all the yard work that comes along with it.

After all, when you get a head start on caring for your lawn, you can have one of the best-looking properties in your neighborhood. That’s why now is the best time to prepare for the upcoming season with tools that will help your yard get in shape.

We’ve picked five awesome deals so you can spend a little time shopping this weekend and laying out the plans for an outdoor living space that’s worthy come springtime.

1. Root Assassin Rake

One of the most basic and useful items you will need: a durable rake. The Root Assassin is designed to make this task a bit easier, as it has a strong-but-lightweight handle and a “D” shaped grip at the end for added leverage. However, it’s the shape of the rake head that caught our attention. It features sturdy, angled tines that grab and hold on to debris, plus the unique structure serves almost like a scoop for gathering up raked piles.

You can get this state-of-the-art rake this weekend for $49.99 and save $12 of the usual price.

2. Agri-Fab 26-Inch Push Lawn Sweeper

It’s arduous to clean up debris in your yard, so we’re always on the lookout for tools that will cut down on work and effort. That’s why we recommend the Agri-Fab 26-Inch Push Lawn Sweeper, which is lightweight and easy to use. Simply walk behind it as it picks up leaves, clippings, small sticks, and other debris and save yourself the need to bend over repeatedly.

Right now, it’s 31% off, bringing its price to $123.61.

3. Greenworks 17-Inch 40V Cordless Lawn Mower

If you are looking for an eco-friendly way to cut your grass, the Greenworks is a versatile machine that’s currently available on sale for $236.49, a saving of more than $60.  

It offers a no-pull starting mechanism and reliable lithium ion battery so you can cut the cord and the need for fuel. The 17-inch deck can mow wide paths to get the job done fast while the bagger/mulching system keeps cleanup to a minimum.

4. DEWALT 40V MAX 6.0 Ah Lithium Ion XR String Trimmer

When it comes to having a perfectly manicured lawn, you are going to need a trimmer. If you don’t want to be limited by a cord or bothered by gasoline fumes, the DEWALT 40V Max is the model you should target. It’s powered by a lithium ion battery, yet is powerful enough to tackle tough weeds. You can easily control its dual trim lines thanks to the bump feed, and determine how much power you need with the variable speed control.

It’s backed by a 3-year limited warranty and is on sale for $285.87.

5. Rubbermaid Storage Shed, 5x2 Feet

Everyone needs a place to store their lawn gear. We love the Rubbermaid 5x2” storage shed for its double-walled build and streamlined design that is both slim and spacious. It fits nicely in small to mid-sized yards without taking up a lot of space, yet has enough room inside to fit a small push mower and a few gardening tools and supplies. And like all Rubbermaid products, the plastic material is weather-resistant.

You can have one in time to begin stashing this year’s lawn and garden supplies for the 33%-off price of $368.97.
