Homeowners say that gardening relieves stress.
Lowe's recently conducted a survey of home gardeners with "varying skill levels," according to a March 27 press release. Results showed that 50 percent of homeowners believe gardening is a stress reliever, while 51 percent said it instills a sense of pride.
But that's not to say that it's an easy hobby to pick up—almost 70 percent of respondents said they've needed help "with some aspect of gardening" at one point. Newer gardeners (those who started in the last three years) also cited "lack of expertise" as their biggest barrier to getting started.
Gardeners can cash in during a month-long sale.
Lowe's is launching its third annual SpringFest this Thursday, March 30, both in-store and online. According to the retailer, SpringFest offers an opportunity for anyone looking to hone their gardening skills.
"As more than half of homeowners are planning to start or expand their gardens this season, they can look to Lowe's as the primary destination for the right products and savings, as well as expert guidance to help achieve their gardening goals, big or small," the press release reads.
While Lowe's associates are available year-round, during SpringFest, they're prepared to assist you with everything from budgeting to planning a garden—or just to give you some tips to get started.
"Gardeners at all skill levels need support to make sure they are maximizing their outdoor spaces, and Lowe's can help make that easier for every project in the garden," Jen Wilson, Lowe's senior vice president, enterprise brand and marketing, said in the release. "Not only do we offer one of the deepest and widest selections of plants and can't-miss savings, but our associates receive ongoing, dedicated training and care for over 325 million plants in spring alone."
"We're excited to be the first stop for homeowners looking to get their spring projects started," Wilson added.
Expect discounts on everything from paint to power tools.
SpringFest kicks off this week, "offering breakthrough savings on gardening and other spring essentials" through April 26. According to the press release, sales will include big-ticket items like outdoor furniture sets, power tools, and appliances.
New gardeners can purchase five bags of mulch (two-cubic feet) for just $10 during SpringFest. And if you're looking to give the inside of your home a refresh, be sure to grab some Sherwin-Williams paint as part of a buy-one-get-one-50-percent-off deal.
This year also marks the introduction of SpringFest Steals. Per the press release, "brand's top picks" will go on sale over the course of the next month—but if you seem something you like, don't wait—discounted items will rotate as SpringFest goes on.
There's a major sweepstakes and a calendar of events.
Starting March 30 at 12 a.m. EST, approximately $150,000 in prizes will be up for grabs, which you can vie for at your local Lowe's or by visiting LowesSpringFestSweeps.com.
If you're looking for free, family-friendly activities, Lowe's has you covered there as well. The retailer has a full calendar of weekend workshops and events this spring, including "Build a Bunny Planter" and "Build a Raised Garden Bed."
On April 8, Lowe's warehouses are hosting SpringFest's Egg-Venture, an Easter-themed event where kids collect candy-filled eggs in their own baskets. A full list of activities is available on Lowe's website, where you can register to take part in the fun.
