When Amazon Prime Day arrives, gardeners should take the time to check the website for discounts on the power tools that they want. Historically, there are many items where prices are slashed as much as 50% and power tools are generally some of the most expensive additions to a gardener's collection of tools. Any savings is a bonus and gives us extra cash for more plants and seeds.

Go green with a reel mower

While we are doing our part to help the environment, if you have a small enough property, why not a motor-less reel mower. At the turn of the 20th Century, that was all our ancestors had and the tough little mowers served them well. Modern versions are smoother cutting and have the added attraction of practically no noise.

Last year, there was a whopping 37% discount to catch shopper's eyes on the American Lawn Mower Company's14-Inch 4-Blade Push Reel Lawn Mower. If you want to go green, this is a must have tool.

snow blower

Get a green snowblower

On the other hand, northern homeowners consider a snow blower a necessary tool and these can get quite pricey. The snow piles up and removing it is often difficult. They are an item of convenience that saves time and backbreaking work in clearing snow from walkways and drives. In some areas, the snowblower is often used every few days, so getting the best one you can afford is essential. Prime Days past saw the Pro 80V 20 inch Snow Thrower with 2Ah Battery and Charger set from Greenworks discounted $79.

patio lights

Solar patio lights are easy to use

Many of us enjoy out gardens and patios at night and an inexpensive way to enhance the beauty of the evening is with lighting. Many patio and outdoor lights were discounted last year and I'm looking forward to seeing what lights are on sale for 2021. I'd like to pick up a few solar spotlights to call attention to some of my more unique plants and garden features. Think about spotlighting your fountain or just outlining a walkway. Solar lights are easy and don't require any electrical knowledge. Just press the posts in the ground and you're done. In 2020 the savvy shoppers were able to steal 40% off an attractive 4-Pack of Waterproof Solar Solar Torch Light with Flickering Flame, so we expect similar this gems in the outdoor decoration time around.
