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. Mid-August through Labor Day is a sweet spot for catching big-ticket outdoor items on sale, as retailers such as The Home Depot 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 on Sale

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. The Home Depot has some great deals, too, but one of the best buys right now is this BLACK+DECKER mower with a comfort grip handle for nearly $50 off and under $200.

Grills on Sale

Yes, that’s a stainless steel Kenmore grill on sale for more than $150 off! Sears has slashed prices on several name-brand gourmet grills and applied even more savings at checkout. So, while this four-burner gas grill only says $90 off on the page, once you add it to your cart, you'll see an additional $70 taken off! And if you're looking for a budget-friendly smoker, The Home Depot has a barrel grill for nearly half off and under $200 right now!

Pressure Washers on Sale

If your porch or patio is starting to look a little grimy, it’s time to blast it. While we've spotted some professional-grade pressure washers on sale right now, they're 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 compact Sun Joe washer is on sale for just under $75 at Walmart. Even better: free shipping!

Weed Trimmers on Sale

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!) RYOBI weed trimmer from The Home Depot for less than $120 right now. Or for more serious power, this gas Ancheer is on sale at Wayfair for more than 40 percent off right now.

Hedge Trimmers on Sale

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, BLACK+DECKER and other name-brand models, from this cordless 60-volt pole trimmer under $230 to this handheld 16-inch trimmer for just 34 bucks. That’s a steal!

Fire Pits on Sale

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 to a more budget-friendly buy like this wood-burning fire pit from Wayfair for under $75. And if you’ve been researching energy-efficient, low-smoke fire pits, Solo Stove is having a massive sale on their stainless steel fire pits. You can snag the popular Bonfire model for less than $275 right now.

Chainsaws on Sale

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 Greenworks model on sale at Walmart. It’s just $69 right now and features minimal kickback for newbies.
