An electric pressure washer you can use to restore your deck or back patio to the way it looked when your first set foot on it — so clean you could eat off it! But…maybe don’t.
A lawn mower in case you have so much grass that your yard is starting to look more like an overgrown forest than a suburban retreat.
A portable projector you can set up in your yard for the ultimate movie night your kids will never forget — good luck convincing them to watch anything other than Frozen.

A stainless-steel fire pit that’ll help transform your not-so-manicured yard into one anyone would feel relaxed hanging out in.

An outdoor pizza oven that’ll make every party a pizza party — and everyone knows there’s nothing better than a pizza party.
A fancier firepit that’ll also double as a wood fire grill and make you feel like you just became the owner of a off-the-beaten path, trendy backyard restaurant.
A snow cone cart, so on super hot summer days you can retreat to the privacy of your own yard and eat as many as your heart desires.
