And for an organic-inspired finish that cuts down on wrapping paper waste, simply tie a colored raffia bow around the outside of the flower box.

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and you know what that means – it’s time to get shopping! But it seems that men, and especially dads, are notoriously hard to shop for, which makes Father’s Day gifts hard to come by. Forget the necktie or barbeque ties, this year give dad a gift that will keep on giving by improving his home’s curb appeal. Here are three gift ideas for him to spruce up his front garden and curb appeal.
Add structure and architectural elements to your father’s home with the help of garden planters. Planters come in all shapes, sizes, and materials, so choose wisely to find the planter to meet your dad’s style, environment, and plants. As a general rule of thumb, tall planters are best by an entryway or garage door, and longer planters work well to outline a space or run underneath a window. Composite, or PVC planters, are best for the low-maintenance dad because they provide the look and feel of wood without requiring upkeep for the long haul. With a few new planters, your dad’s front garden will look better than ever.
Help your dad upgrade from the standard mailbox to something more eye-catching. Decorative mailboxes are an easy way to extend a home’s style all the way to the curb. This black aluminum mailbox is a classic option that will add a touch of sophistication to any home. For a more contemporary look, this vinyl double mailbox will tie in strong lines with sleek style. And for the dad who likes to garden, give him the mailbox with planter for the best of both worlds. And don’t worry about installation-decorative mailboxes are easy to install over a wood post. You can even give your dad the gift of construction and let him put it together himself!
Help you dad establish the colors and style of his home with a fresh batch of plants. Adding plants and flowers to a yard can make a huge difference and breathe a sense of life into a home. When buying plants as a Father’s Day gift, consider the location of the garden and of the home, especially the amount of sun and shade available in the front garden. Choose plants that will thrive in their designated area. Pick plants that will match the style and color scheme of the house and that will look good and grow well together. And of course, don’t forget about your dad’s green thumb-be sure to choose plants he can keep up with and keep thriving.
