Does your lawn need a little TLC? You've come to the right place. If you're a beginner, we've got your back with tools that'll set you up for success and make caring for your lawn easy. And, if you've already been tending to it for a while, but just want to level up your game, these products are perfect for you, too. Because as far as we're concerned, the grass is always greener exactly where you are — at home. So, why not make it as nice as it can possibly be?

Sun Joe Home Electric Corded Push Behind Lawn Mower, starting at $97.12

A lawn mower is an obvious pick, we know, but this mower in particular caught our eye. It comes in four colors: black, blue, green, and red — which we just love, because choices. Also, this mower is lightweight and compact, so it's ideal for smaller or mid-sized spaces, or for anyone who does not want a heavy, bulky mower to push around. The handle is foldable, so storage shouldn't be an issue. But best of all? You get to ditch the gas, oil, and tune-ups since this little number is electric.

HART 40-Volt Cordless Brushless Backpack Blower Kit, $268

If you have a large yard with lots of leaves and debris, you've got to go big — and by big, we mean bringing this blower into your lawn care routine. It's backpack style, with a variable speed trigger and cruise control, which translates into you having all the control. Nice, yes? Also, it's quiet, which you might not expect from such a powerful tool. Our personal favorite feature on this blower is that it's battery powered, so no gas needed.

HART 20-Volt Cordless Hybrid Hedge Trimmer Kit, $96

Like a good haircut, your hedges can (and do) benefit from an occasional trim, and will give your lawn that extra edge in style and symmetry. The dual action blades on this trimmer result in less vibration, which means less user fatigue. It's lightweight and portable, running on either a battery or extension cord (for unlimited runtime). While this may seem like a nice-to-have item for some, we highly recommend that you move it to your must-have list because it will make all the difference in giving your lawn an elevated, clean look.

Sun Joe Electric Garden Tiller/Cultivator, $99.99

Re-seeding your lawn in the hopes of growing new grass is a dirty job, but someone's got to do it. And this electric tiller is up to the task. It's ideal when helping an old lawn get healthy again, but it's also a handy tool when you want to plant a flower or vegetable garden. Why? Because it loosens the ground, removes weeds, aerates the soil, and makes dirt removal easy. We want to place a spotlight on the fact this tiller is lightweight, yet totally powerful. If you don't yet have one yet, it's time to give this product some serious consideration.

HART 40-Volt Cordless Brushless Chainsaw Kit, $188

Yes, we're recommending a chainsaw in your lawn care lineup. And by now we're sure you've caught on to the fact that no gas is required for any of our recommended tools we've listed here — including this battery-operated chainsaw. Use it for pruning, trimming limbs from trees, cutting back big grasses, or trimming hearty bushes and shrubs. This model is equipped with an automatic oiler, so you should be able to get smooth, fast cuts every time you go to work.


Laurie Gunning Grossman, Hunker’s editorial director, caught the California boho minimalist bug. So, she bought a cream-colored couch. And she also lives with two kids and two dogs, so we’ll see how that decision pans out.
