Prime Day may still be months away but you know Amazon: if the month has a vowel in it there's usually some kind of sale going on. And this month is no exception: Amazon's Big Spring Sale is packed with pretty deep discounts on all kinds of things, including garden tools, yard equipment, firepits and outdoor furniture too.

The thing about Amazon, though, is that not every deal is as good as it might look: some product prices bounce up and down all year long like a spring lamb or a particularly cheerful Easter bunny, so there's not really a need to rush out and buy: if you miss it today, another deal will be along shortly. But the good deals are much rarer and definitely worth your while. In some cases we're seeing prices lower than they've been since Black Friday, saving you serious sums on some really attractive products.

With that in mind, here are my nine outdoor deals in the Amazon Big Spring Sale that deliver good value for money including some of the best outdoor furniture deals, best gas grill deals and best fire pit deals. Whether you're looking for tools or somewhere to relax with friends when the lawn is mown, the trees trimmed and the plants pruned, these are some of the best big sale deals around right now.

How do I know that I'm getting a good Amazon Big Spring Sale deal?

The first rule of deal club is to go with your gut: if something feels too good to be true, it probably is. And the second rule of deal club is to check the price elsewhere to see if the deal is real. Make sure you read the reviews wherever you can too, because there's no point getting a deep discount on something that'll disappoint you.

We've found over the years that the RRP - recommended retail price – of any product is often useless, because in many cases the RRP isn't what anybody charges. That doesn't mean deals aren't deals. But many products do come down in price over time, and that means their original selling price isn't the best guide to what they're actually worth.
