Cheap garden products from discounters? Lidl online shop under the microscope

Garden tools from brand manufacturers are expensive. Discounter offers from Aldi and Lidl can often save a lot of money. The Lidl online shop offers a large range with good prices.

Shopping garden products online saves money I've been living in my new home for more than 1.5 years. The house construction was done completely by different companies. When we moved in, everything was ready and exactly as we imagined it - at least as far as the house and interior are concerned. It looks very different outside. With a plot of a good 3000 m² you have a lot to do. It must be made completely arable. This not only costs a lot of time, it also costs a lot.

Lawnmowers, spades, small garden tools, plants, trees, etc., I could go on forever. Anyone moving from the city to the country simply has to buy a lot. Ideally, of course, all at once, because you want to make progress. But as already mentioned, of course it all costs a lot of money. So I looked around for cheap alternatives. Due to the advertising brochures that flutter into your home every week, I came across Aldi & Lidl and was able to get some cheap plants. Inspired by this, I also took a closer look at the Lidl online shop (Aldi still has none!) And was surprised how wide the range is.

Large selection for a small price

If you think that the brochures already offer a lot for garden owners, you should definitely check out the Lidl online shop. Mainly because you don't have to wait for the offers to hit the supermarket on Monday or Thursday. You can order the offers and many other products at any time - 24 hours a day - 7 days a week while stocks last. A clear plus point.

Category Garden & BBQ

So now to the large selection. A look in the category "Garden & Barbecue" makes the gardener's heart beat a little faster. Mostly probably that of women. Because there are many things here that can be used to beautify the garden. From decorations to a large selection of plants to garden furniture and cozy lounge furniture, everything is included.

The cozy Allibert balcony set Iowa is a perfect example that quality doesn't always have to cost a lot of money. Instead of 120 euros, you can get two comfortable chairs and a small side table in rattan look for just 99.99 euros. High-quality polypropylene is used as the material, which is UV and weather resistant. According to the many positive customer reviews, the set is not only easy to assemble, it also sits comfortably and that's the most important thing, isn't it?

You will also find various grilling devices in this category, including electric grills, charcoal grills and gas grills. With the right furniture and a practical grill, many cozy evenings are guaranteed.

Category hardware store

During my first search I missed the tools and practical garden aids in the garden category. After a short research I found what I was looking for in the category “hardware store”. And lo and behold, there is so much more. Secateurs, lawn mowers, leaf blowers, small appliances, and much more. can be found in the sub-category “garden tools”. Again and again there are offers where you can get the devices up to 37 percent cheaper. I've already got a lot and I have to say that I am really enthusiastic about the quality.

That was not all. In addition to the typical garden tools, Lidl also offers:

  • Garden and greenhouses
  • Play equipment, such as slides, sand boxes, etc.
  • Carports & Pavilions and
  • finished terrace systems

on. So there is everything you need to get ahead in the garden.

Regular seasonal offers

In addition to the standard repertoire in the online shop, you get Lidl flyers with current seasonal offers every week. You can then access it in the local market, provided you are there in time. Popular things like electrical devices, chairs, tables, traffic lights, flowers and plants, etc. are always quickly sold out.

In the coming week e.g. there are plants to buy again that are ideal for autumn planting. But flower bulbs that need to be planted now to bloom next year are also available on Thursday. The bird feed on the right also draws our attention to the fact that the cold season is just around the corner. So strike in time.

If you want to make some really good snappers, you shouldn't always throw the flyers straight into the blue bin, but leaf through them quietly. Alternatively, you can also view these brochures online.

»By the way: Certain products from the brochure can also be ordered directly in the online shop. You can recognize this by the note: “Also online”.

Advantages and disadvantages of the Lidl online shop

Shopping comfortably from home - that's been in demand for a long time. So you can browse in peace after work without having to pay attention to closing times. A disadvantage compared to on-site shopping is of course the delivery time. At Lidl, this is 2 to 3 working days. But I was also lucky that it was there the next day. So if you can wait a bit, you should order online instead of standing in the long lines on the morning of the offer days.

Shipping costs are also a disadvantage of online shopping. Lidl charges a flat rate of 4.95 euros here. You can avoid these if you use the appropriate vouchers before ordering.

A mistake can sometimes not be avoided when shopping online. With every normal shop you have 14 days right of withdrawal. Lidl voluntarily extends the return period by another 16 days. So you have 30 days to test and try out the respective articles. It is only important that you send the goods back in their original condition. Lidl also offers all common payment methods. You can do your shopping with

  • bill
  • debit
  • prepayment
  • Sofortuberweisung
  • paypal
  • Credit card
  • Hire purchase and
  • Lidl gift card
