"After this tough of a winter, we're really excited to bring spring to our customers with great brands and great prices," Michelle Gloeckler, senior vice president of Wal-Mart's home department told The Times.

Available appliances include the Kingsford Charcoal Grill for $88, bagged mulch for $1.97 a pack, and a patio furniture set with seven pieces at $298 priced down $100 The Times reported. There are also various types of fertilizers, flowers, and insect repellants geared toward separate parts of the United States.

"And we're going to do this in true Walmart fashion," Gloeckler told The Times. "Think of just pallets and pallets of mulch and grills, patio sets and big yellow bags of Miracle-Gro. We're ready to bring it out in a big way," Gloeckler told The Times.

"So if you do get that one last snow. The pansies will make it through that," Gloeckler told The Times.
