Memorial Day is less than a week away. Is your yard ready for outdoor enjoyment in the unique gifts of summer warmth and sunshine? If not, we have some items that can help you make your yard beautiful and comfortable for your family and friends all season long.
Get your deck ready for a repainting or quickly clean winter’s debris from your patio and driveway. This electric power washer is a fast, effective way to remove built-up grime. In side-by-side evaluations conducted by The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute, this model was rated The Best because it cleaned more effectively and was easiest to use. Five quick-connect spray tips make it easy to adjust the power of the spray to the job, and its dual removable tanks let you clean with two different detergents.
Trim hedges easily, or perhaps indulge that urge to transform ordinary shrubs into beautiful topiary. This cordless hedge trimmer has a telescoping shaft to prune hedges up to 10′ tall while you stand safely on the ground. It also eliminates the hassle of running extension cords…the trimmer is powered by a rechargeable 18-volt lithium-ion battery for optimal freedom of movement.
Sufficient water is key to a bountiful and beautiful garden. Provide your plants good irrigation and they’ll reward you with the unique gifts of tasty and healthful homegrown veggies. Those daily waterings are easier with this sturdy steel hose reel cart that earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it quickly and smoothly retracts. And unlike lesser carts with flimsy plastic wheels that inhibited mobility, this model has four pneumatic tires for easy rolling all summer long.
Once your yard is in prime condition, keep your outdoor dinner party free of insects without the need for pesticides. This enclosure fits over a patio table’s umbrella to provide a protective canopy. Made from sturdy polyester netting too small for pests to penetrate, it fits over umbrellas up to 9′ in diameter while its 96″ length extends to stay flush with the ground.
The next three months will fly by, but with a little work and planning now, you’ll be able to make the most of your outdoor space so you can relax and enjoy the unique gifts of nature’s best season.
