This water-resistant kneeling pad is made with thick, high-density foam to stand up to dirt and rocks while protecting your knees. 

$19 at Amazon

Gardening can do a number on your knees, but this cushy foam pad makes getting down on the ground a bit more comfortable. With more than 16,000 five-star ratings, Amazon shoppers get behind the Gorilla Grip Kneeling Pad.

"Great gardening aid," an impressed customer shared. "I like to garden and have a knee that hurts when I kneel down. This is very comfortable, easy to use and provides a good spot to put small objects that you are using. I have two of them. I prefer them to knee pads."

Durable, lightweight and breathable, these knit gloves have a flexible rubber coating to protect your hands while giving you a nonslip grip on your tools.

$14 at Amazon

Green-thumbed Amazon shoppers rave about these colorful gloves. The flexible foam latex coating keeps your hands cool and dry — especially handy when it's so darn hot out. Just chuck them in the washing machine between wears.

"Purchased twice already!" shared one of over 15,000 five-star reviewers. "I do a lot of gardening, and these gloves are amazing. They hold up to the dirt and water, the only reason I have purchased twice was because I use them so much that I need to have backups!"

This sprinkler offers customizable coverage for yards up to 3,600 square feet.

$25 at Amazon

Thirsty yard? There's a reason this sprinkler has over 27,000 five-star reviews — it's a powerhouse. It has customizable coverage, and it's equipped with 20 clog-resistant rubber nozzles. It even comes with a built-in clean-up tool.

"Aqua Joe is the man!" gushed one shopper. "My boy Aqua Joe rightfully deserves his due credit! This sprinkler has made what used to be an annoying and tedious task a thing of the past! Forget everything you think you know about oscillating sprinklers because this thing reinvented them. Hands down would recommend you buy!"

Weeds, meet your worst enemy. This lightweight cultivator has a 2.5-amp motor and churns soil up to 6.3 inches deep.

$170 at Amazon

Planting some shrubs? This popular tiller makes short work of weeding, using six blades to expertly till the soil that you otherwise would've spent hours digging. It's electric, so you don't have to deal with smoke, spark plugs and more, and it's small and lightweight for easy storage.

"I have been gardening for many years and am 81 now," a shopper reported. "I cannot handle the big tillers anymore and thought I would try this electric tiller. ... I have a somewhat large garden. Plowed all of it for the spring planting with this tiller. It takes a little longer with the electrical cords, but once you learn how to handle them it is well worth it by not having to mess with gasoline and trying to crank it up."

These shears have an ergonomic design with a nonslip grip, and the all-steel blade has a rust-resistant coating for easy clipping over the long haul.

$14 at Amazon

These gardening shears have a soft nonslip grip, and due to their low-friction coating, they easily glide through wood — experienced gardeners say they cut like a "hot knife through butter." That makes them easy to use, even if you can't garden like you used to.

"Arthritis has no more power over me," shared a happy shopper. "I was unable to use the larger cutting tools because I have nasty arthritis, but with the Fiskars it's snip and snip and snip, most times for larger diameter plants too ... I am ordering another one today ... Yes, it's that good."

These clogs offer a bunch of clever design features: mini massaging bumps in the footbed to gently caress your feet; drainage holes to ensure water won't get trapped inside; and a nonslip sole for stability and safety.

$28 at Amazon

Available in 11 colors, these clogs have amassed more than 22,000 five-star reviews. Whether you trekked through dirt, spilled some coffee or decided to don these while doing yard work, they're a snap to clean. Just add water (cue the hose).

"Perfect backyard shoe and summer slipper," one shopper shared. "I use these for slipping on when walking in my backyard with my dogs, gardening and neighborhood walks. Perfect to clean when muddy or the accidental step in dog poop. They are very comfy (with some arch support) and cute! Many colors to choose from. Great for warm weather as my feet would get hot. No odor."

For bigger jobs, these sprayers are easy to carry around the yard without getting too heavy. 

$26 at Amazon

Have a big yard with just a few brown spots? These lawn pumps let you take water and liquid fertilizer to the spots your sprinklers can't get to — and more than 57,000 Amazon shoppers say they deliver.

"They hold plenty of water or liquid fertilizer for what I need in my greenhouse," shared a happy gardener. I've filled one with water and one with diluted liquid fertilizer for my starter plants in the greenhouse. The sprayer works great. They're easy to lock and lift and I like that they're not too heavy for me. The larger 2-gallon ones are great if I'm watering with the water. These I can hold up high or low. And the sprayer works just as well when watering plants on the top shelves (which is another thing my other ones suck at!)"

This faucet splitter lets you hook up two hoses at once and has two shut-off valves that are larger and easier to use than what you'll find on most of the competition.

$25 at Amazon

Sometimes, one spout isn't enough to keep your grass green. This splitter lets you hook up two hoses at once and has big shutoff valves that are easy to maneuver. More than 22,000 shoppers say it's a lawn-care must.

"I live in a condo unit in Florida," shared a five-star fan. "I have a small courtyard with planting areas on all four sides. My tap is in a corner. I had a heavy-duty hose that was a chore to move enough to water the more remote areas. And doing so risked damaging bedding plants and small shrubs. I use this to split my tap. Bought a 75-foot hose to reach the more remote section and a 25-foot to reach the nearer one. This splitter is a handy tool. The levers that control the water flow do a good job of controlling it without leaks or drips."

This gadget uses blue light to attract and zap mosquitoes, gnats, moths and flies within 1,500 square feet.

$40 at Amazon

We can all agree that parties are much more fun when they're bug-free. This bug zapper entices uninvited flying pests with a UV light and nukes them on contact. And because this is about pest control, not guest control, this gadget is housed inside a plastic grate to prevent accidental zaps. Amazon shoppers are abuzz about its effectiveness.

"Best mosquito killer around," a pleased shopper noted. "I live in Florida and I haven't found any product that would keep the mosquitoes away. I haven't had an issue since I bought this machine. I am outside on the back patio at night and day, and no mosquitoes!"

This mega-popular hammock is ready to help you relax and enjoy the fresh air — just add trees.

$20 at Amazon

Amazon's No. 1 bestselling hammock comes in two sizes — for one (108 x 54 inches) or two people (120 x 78 inches) — and 14 colors. Made of sturdy parachute nylon, it's lightweight (just 24 ounces) and folds up to the size of an eggplant.

One customer shared: "I have bought three of these hammocks, one for myself, my partner and for my nephew. These are the best hammocks I've ever used. I've used them in all seasons, for camping, in the park, they are very durable and high quality. Could not recommend this more. Also can fit two people in here! You can also wrap it around you to cover the top."
