When you think of Memorial Day weekend, you think of a day off work, barbecuing at the lake and kicking off summer.

Others will take advantage of the holiday to spruce up their yards or work on some home improvement projects. And this Memorial Day weekend is a tax free weekend to help with those yard tasks and projects according to dallasnews.com.

This tax free holiday begins Saturday, May 26, and runs through Monday, May 28. Here's what qualifies as tax free for that time:

  • Water Sense products - These are products that conserve energy but, most importantly, conserve water for your gardens or yards. They also include toilets, faucets, shower heads, etc., that have the designation.
  • Certain mulches or composts.
  • Plants, trees and grasses.

So all you folks with a green thumb or doing some home improvement this weekend, get out and shop tax free.
