Still looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift? Start with your own home and yard.


Whether your dad is the do-it-yourself type or would rather hire a professional contractor, give the gift of home improvement this year for Father’s Day.

1.  Put together a new tool chest or update his existing collection complete with all the tools a homeowner needs.

2. Give him a break and hire a full-service landscaper or lawn maintenance contractor

A well-kept landscape adds value to your home and can increase the value of your home dramatically. When selecting a landscaper for your home, consider all the services you might need. Do you need something as simple planting a few flowers and maintaining or mowing the lawn? Or something more elaborate as landscape design, water features, aquatic plants, retaining wall, fences, lighting and irrigation systems?

3. Hire a garage and custom shed contractor to build a custom shed, greenhouse and even a chicken coop!

Has a custom garage been a dream of dad’s for a long time? Has he always talked about “someday” having that greenhouse or raising chickens? A skilled and professional contractor may be just what he needs. These additions can add a lifetime of precious family memories – and maybe some new dirt in your home.

4. Timber! Don’t make dad do all the dirty work, find a tree service contractor take care of the job safely.

Preventative tree services can save you thousands of dollars in damages should a tree or limbs fall due to disease or storm damage. Having a professional check out your tree and do any needed preventative care can be a worthwhile investment – and dad can relax and trust the pros.

5. Is your dad the type that loves to do it all himself? Offer to join and help! Or plan a special outdoor picnic while he works in the yard. Don’t forget a handmade card!

Happy Father’s Day!
