It’s time to get outside and enjoy the weather. Here are some great finds on Amazon to help you prepare your outdoor areas for summer.
The weather is warming up (unless you’re a lucky one and it already has for you) which means it’s time to get outdoors and prepare your outdoor areas for summer gardening, relaxation and entertaining. We took the time to scour the Amazon top Patio, Lawn & Garden list to find the popular items we can recommend or would like to try out ourselves. Take a look and hopefully we can contribute to a great summer for you and your families.
Top Ten Amazon Items to Help Prepare Your Outdoor Areas For Summer
Electric Pressure Washer – These are a must-have for all homeowners. Even it’s just an inexpensive electric model, these can come in handy in so many ways: Cleaning decks, driveways, siding, outdoor furniture and planters. Everything becomes easier when you have the right tools. Not necessarily an outdoor, summer activity but we even use ours to clean out the cat little boxes.
Lightweight Garden Hose – Make sure you always have enough hose to reach all the areas of your gardens that might need extensive watering at some point. There might be days where the watering can is not enough. This will also pair well with that pressure washer.
Stay Safe From Insects
Electronic Insect Killer – This has been one of the most popular, iconic backyard mosquito control product for many years, however, studies suggest they may not be as effective as we hope. Despite this, sometimes it is necessary to try everything to stay safe from insect-borne diseases.
The most effective method is personal bug repellant and another popular item on Amazon to prepare yourself for summers outdoors, stock-up on this:
For all those bugs that end up finding you anyway, be sure to keep a batch of this DIY anti-itch bug bite lotion we shared in the past.
1-Gallon Sprayer – These are perfect for spraying our DIY weed killing potion but did you see this great tip we offered using one of these for quick and easy DIY deck staining? Get your deck ready for spring is a fresh coat of deck stain.
Green Grass and Lush Gardens
Grass Seed Sun & Shade Dog Spot Repair – Our Chuckers does not like the cold and wind of winter so we’ll be using a lot of this right near the door he uses to go outside. Add a little topsoil, over seed with this and no one will ever know.
Programmable Hose Faucet Timer – This is something we haven’t thought of before but its popularity on Amazon is pretty is self-explanatory. These would be very useful when your gardens are looking a little sad after a few hot, dry days and you’re prone to forgetting you left the sprinkler on. The multiple outputs make it easy to hook up a couple soaker hoses, too. We definitely need to try this one out.
Pruning Shears – We have so many pruning shears around here. One in the craft drawer ready to head out to grab some indoor decor, we have one in each mudroom, the garage and probably a pair left in the yard somewhere by one of our little helpers. You can never have too many pruning shears ready to go.
Bird Seed – Variety Blend – Why not pick up a couple of bird feeders this year and enjoys the different sights and sounds of the birds that find their way into your yard.
Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade Powder – Here is a great run-down on all the great uses for this product in our gardens: Natural Living Ideas – 10 Reasons Diatomaceous Earth Should Be Every Gardener’s Best Friend
The Amazon top lists are long and tedious so we hope our curated list will help you prepare your outdoor areas and get your summer of gardening, relaxing and entertaining off to a great start.
