Outdoor Garden Tools (Review & Giveaway!)

by Marina Ingrit

Summer is always so busy and filled with swim lessons, games, BBQs, camping, family events, and of course, yard work! Whether you love it like I do, or hate it, it still needs to be done. I recently received some yard tools that make things easier and thanks to Ryobi, I get to give one of them away today!


I have a large garden. It is 19 feet by 90 feet. That is a lot of produce! But unfortunately that also means a lot of weeds. In the past I tried hand weeding and hoeing but that took too long even with my 4 sons helping. I started tilling in between the rows a few years ago and it is so much better! Like hoeing on steroids 🙂



It is so nice to zip up and down the rows. This year I received this battery powered cultivator from Ryobi and it is perfect for this job. It is ridiculously easy to start, easy to maneuver, and goes deep enough to rip up all the small to medium weeds. I wish I could say I let these weeds get this big to show you just how much this cultivator rocks, but I was just lazy.


Expand-It Tools

This cultivator is part of a really cool system called Expand-It. The cultivator part comes off the handle and you can snap on different tools. How smart it that?!?

The different attachments include string trimmers, edgers, blower, pole saw, hedge trimmer, brush cutter, snow thrower, and sweeper. 

I have the edger, string trimmer and the cultivator. I am definitely going to be buying more attachments!



Lawn Mower

Five years ago I received a Ryobi battery powered lawn mower to review. You can read that here.. I have LOVED it. I love how easy it is to start, how quiet it is, and that I don’t have to worry about gas. When we are done mowing we put the batteries on the chargers and then they are ready for the next time we mow!

Ryobi offered to send me a new model to try out and I was pumped!


My youngest can start it and mow easily. I even bought one for my mom a couple of years ago. Even though my boys mow her lawn, I wanted her to have one that she could start and use herself if she had to. No more bending and pulling that start cord!



Ryobi has several models of battery powered mowers. This one is the 20 inch 40-volt Brushless Lithium-Ion Smart TREK Self-Propelled mower. Our yard is very big and we can get most of the lawn done on one battery. We always have two charged because we need to use the second for a bit. I love that we can fold it up to store it vertically too. Our garage is tiny and FULL of storage.

I actually really love to mow, although my boys do it more often because they have more time. Plus it builds character, right 😉



Ryobi is giving away a 10 inch 40-volt X Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable Cultivator (Battery and charger included!) This is a $249 value! 

It works with the Expand-It attachments too!
