Spring has sprung and we’re all itching to spend more time outdoors. To help us get the most of the lovely change in weather, Lowe’s is giving away free gardening goodies all month long!
The home improvement store just announced their SpringFest celebration, which kicks off this week. After registering on Lowe’s website, customers will be able to pick up free gardening kits and family-friendly project inspiration from their local stores. There will be fun new items up for grabs each week throughout the month of April. Check out the line-up:
- April 8: Garden-to-Go kit sponsored by Miracle-Gro with exclusive recipes from professional cook and food stylist Amanda Frederickson.
- April 15: Lowe’s Mystery Garden Pinata.
- April 22: 500,000 tree saplings given out in honor of Earth Day.
- April 29: Lowe’s Butterfly Quest which helps families create a butterfly garden.
The company is also offering online and in-store demos run by brands like Scotts for lawn care advice and The Sherwin-Williams Company for painting tips — all while following the necessary safety and social distancing guidelines.
Lowe’s was inspired to create SpringFest after seeing responses from a survey of 2,000 people: 85 percent now understandably describe their homes as a sanctuary, 70 percent said they don’t plan on traveling this spring and are seeking safe and meaningful experiences in their own space, and almost all of the respondents (90 percent) said they spent the last year working on home improvement projects and hope to do more this spring.
“Over the past year, our homes have transformed and supported us in more ways than we could have imagined,” Marisa Thalberg, Lowe’s executive vice president and chief brand and marketing officer, said in a press release. “This spring, home can evolve, yet again, to be a creative outlet and the ultimate destination. Through SpringFest and our invitation to take a ‘Hometrip,’ we’re making the best of spring available so our customers can transport themselves without ever leaving the sanctuary of home.”
Even as there seems to be a light finally emerging at the end of this pandemic tunnel, it makes sense that many of us aren’t rushing out to venture too far while we wait to see how life continues to adjust. In the meantime, it’s the perfect opportunity to hone your own personal oasis right in your own backyard!
