If you’re going to put your best foot forward this spring and summer, you’re going to need the right gadget to light your way — literally. This chic, subtle black light looks amazing as a lawn accessory during the day, but it steals the spotlight at night. BUY IT: Target, $25

2. Plant Perfect

Because actual, real-life vintage cars are a little too expensive and not nearly as environmentally friendly. In fact, it doesn’t get much greener than a solar-powered planter. This one happens to use solar power for its headlights, so consider it the ultimate addition to your garden or yard. BUY IT: Plow Hearth, $50

3. Pest Patrol

The worst thing about the spring and summer is without a doubt the bugs. Consider mosquito bites gone with the help of this pest repeller. You can actually enjoy the long days and nights outside without having to be fearful of itchy bites or smelling like bug spray. BUY IT: Home Depot, $19

4. Power Source

Can’t take the thought of being away from your phone for one minute? No judgment here. A solar-powered panel brings your power source outdoors without any of the hassle of tangled wires, juggling phones, or worrying about extension cords. BUY IT: REI, $150

5. Squeaky Clean

Once the temperature really takes an upward swing, it might be time to do a cannonball right into the pool. It's sure to feel like paradise and an outdoor shower will only enhance the tropical vibes. Winter is officially a distant memory. BUY IT: Staples, $228

And when the April showers approach, this color-changing piece of garden decor will bring you sunshine on a cloudy day. It’s especially handy at night, lighting up the dark for up to eight hours thanks to solar power. BUY IT: Bed, Bath & Beyond, $20

7. Joyful Noise

It just wouldn’t be spring without some celebratory jams. The sun is shining and the music should be playing, especially if there are guests coming over or a big backyard party underway. BUY IT: Adorama, $181

8. Lock & Key

Busting out the bike and riding is only half the battle. Where to lock it? This futuristic smart bike lock relies on solar-powered technology that detects theft, says goodbye to outdated keys and uses crash alert sensors, so you can ride just about anywhere. BUY IT: Lattis, $199

9. Gourmet Grill

Burgers, hot dogs and kebabs, the list of delicious options goes on and on. And luckily, calories don’t count in the spring, so call the expert grill chef in your life, fire up this GoSun Stove, and throw a party. The more food, the better. BUY IT: GoSun, $799
