Summer may be winding down, but there’s still plenty of sunny days ahead for all of those backyard projects on the to-do list. And if you don’t have the right gear or tools, now is the time to buy. The end of August through Labor Day is a sweet spot for catching big-ticket outdoor items on sale, as retailers such as Amazon host end-of-summer events to clear out lawn and garden inventory and make room for seasonal winter items. We’ve scoured the sales and combed through the biggest outdoor sites to round-up the deepest discounts right now on brand names like DeWalt, BLACK+DECKER, Craftsman and more. Shop our top-rated picks below, from chainsaws to pressure washers to hedge trimmers. We even threw in the best savings spotted on grills and fire pits just in case you’re already dreaming of fall cookouts.

Lawn Mowers

If your lawnmower is on its last leg, replacing it might not be as expensive as you think. Sears has slashed prices on name-brand push mowers in various sizes. Overstock has some good deals, too, but one of the best buys is this BLACK+DECKER mower for nearly $80 off.


Yes, that’s a Weber grill on sale for more than $100 off! We rarely see a Weber on sale. It’s a diamond in the rough of internet sales, and this deal definitely won’t last long. If you’re looking for a more entry-level, budget grill, don’t miss this Char-Grill on Amazon on sale for about $200.

Pressure Washers

If your porch or patio is starting to look a little grimy, it’s time to blast it. While you can get a professional-grade pressure washer on sale from Lowe's right now, it’s still professional-grade expensive. But you don’t really need that much power — especially if you’re just cleaning a deck or washing windows. This Greenworks model is on sale for $150 on Amazon with free shipping and free returns for Prime members.

Weed Trimmers

In a constant battle with weeds? Instead of spraying with chemicals that could be harmful to your family and pets, whack ‘em! A weed trimmer is a great way to keep weeds at bay without spray. You can snag a rechargeable (no gas needed!) Toro weed trimmer from The Home Depot for less than $180 right now.

Hedge Trimmers

Hedge trimmers are the unsung hero of landscaping and good curb appeal. If you’re shopping for one or looking to upgrade to a larger size, we spotted several discounts on DeWalt and BLACK+DECKER models, from a small 16-inch trimmer to this 24-inch trimmer for nearly $75. That’s a steal. And if you realize it’s too big for your landscaping needs, Prime members get free returns.

Fire Pits

Fire pit season is almost here and we can already smell the s’mores and hot cider. Gear up for those cool autumn nights with a new fire pit, from big statement pieces like this gas fire pit table to a more budget-friendly buy like this wood-burning fire pit from Wayfair for just over $100. And if you’ve been researching energy-efficient, low-smoke fire pits, Solo Stove is having a 20-percent-off sale on their stainless steel fire pits. You can snag the popular Bonfire model for less than $300 right now.


If you’ve got an eyesore, dead shrub or fallen tree you need to clear up, an electric chainsaw is a handy tool. It’s not as powerful as a gas chainsaw, but it’s just right for smaller landscaping needs. And if the kickback is intimidating, check out this small Craftsman model on Amazon. It’s on sale for 15 percent off and features a low kickback for newbies.
