Lowe’s Spring Black Friday event — or SpringFest, as Lowe’s started calling it in 2021 — is one of their best sales of the year if you’re looking to get materials for DIY projects or upgrade your garden, grill, and patio.

I dug into four years of Lowe’s Spring Black Friday sales data, and the history has a lot to teach us when we’re looking to score the best deals.

The information below is everything you need to know to get the most out of the Spring Black Friday sale at Lowe’s — starting with when we’re expecting to see the next sale:

 

1. Lowe’s Spring Black Friday sale began on the first Thursday in April.

 

Lowe’s confirmed in a press release that the 2022 spring sale will begin on Thursday, April 7, 2022.

Each year since 2019, Lowe’s has kicked off their Spring Black Friday sale on the first Thursday of April and it’s lasted exactly two weeks. This year it’s set to last twice as long.

 

2. Lowe’s Spring Black Friday sale will run for 28 days.

Lowe’s 2022 spring sale is set to last a full four weeks: from April 7-May 4, 2022. Now we wait to see if Home Depot’s spring sale will announce the same.

Until the announcement of the 2022 sale, Lowe’s had been the epitome of consistency with the start and end dates of every spring sale. Going back four years, each Lowe’s Spring Black Friday sale lasted for 14 days. I wouldn’t mind seeing some of that consistency with Lowe’s actual Black Friday sale — which has looked different each year since 2019.

Sadly, some of the best deals — like $2 bags of mulch — are only live for the first week of SpringFest. That means you gotta get to Lowe’s early!

 

3. Lowe’s mulch sale in spring is the best of the year at $2 per bag.

A bag of mulch at Lowe’s normally costs about $3.50 ($3.33-$3.68 last I checked, depending on the variety). The lowest price of the year is $2.00 per bag and it’s offered both in stores and online during the spring sale. Read more about how to calculate cost per cubic foot and really save on mulch at Lowes and Home Depot.

Here’s what we expect to see available between April 7 – 13, 2022:

Buy 1 Lowe’s Premium 2-cu ft Hardwood Mulch (reg. $3.68) $2, sale price
In stores only
Final Price: $2

 

4. Lowe’s Miracle Grow was Buy 3, Get 3 free during Springfest 2021.

Miracle-Gro all purpose potting soil at Lowe’s normally costs $4.28 per .75 cubic foot bag. But they often go half-off during the Lowe’s spring sale. The only catch is you have to stock-up in order to save because in past years the sale has been buy three, get three free.

Here’s what we expect to see between April 7 – 13, 2022:

Buy 6 Miracle Gro Garden Soil, 0.75 cu ft $4.28, regular price
Buy 3 get 3 free
In stores only
Final Price: $2.14 each, when you buy 6

 

5. Lowes hanging flower baskets aren’t the only great deal in the garden center.

Another of Lowe’s most popular spring sale deals is the 1.5 liter hanging baskets at just $5-$7.50 per pot. Regular price on these hanging plastic planters is $14.98. But, there are ways to save at least 50% by shopping Home Depot and Lowe’s hanging flower basket sales.
Lowe’s doesn’t list the baskets at a straight $7.50 each. The sale signs will read “2 for $15”. But keep in mind, you don’t have to buy two to get the $7.50 per pot price.

And if you love flowers, watch for 6-packs of annuals for $1.00 (reg. $2.00) during the spring sale too. See this week’s best Lowe’s deals on KCL.

Here’s what we expect to see beginning April 7, 2022:

Hanging Flower Baskets, 1.5 liter (reg $14.98) $7.49, sale price
In stores only
Final Price: $7.49 each

 

 

6. Lowe’s Char-Broil gas grills were 30% off regular price during the last Spring Black Friday.

Grills will see their first big sale of the year during Lowe’s spring sale. But keep in mind, if you don’t find what you’re looking for, grill deals will keep going all season: memorial day, then fourth of July. Typically, about 30% off is as good as we see for deals on propane grills.

The price of this grill has gone up $50 in the past year, but maybe it’ll still see a similar price drop. Here’s last year’s price we hope to see beginning April 7, 2022:

Buy 1 Char-Broil Performance 5-Burner Gas Grill (reg. $249) $199, sale price
Free shipping on orders of $45+ or free store pickup
Final Price: $199

 

7. Take advantage of Lowe’s price match policy if you miss any Spring Black Friday deals.

8. Return all dead trees, shrubs, and perennials within a year.
