Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and for those still on the hunt for the perfect gift to celebrate dad, Pike Nurseries has a variety of garden-themed ideas to get him geared up for the summer growing season. Whether he loves taming the yard, mastering new tools, firing up fresh flavors or just being outdoors, dad is sure to dig these finds for the backyard and beyond.

For the Handy Man

For practical dads who like to take the DIY route with home improvement projects, Father’s Day is all about new tools to stock the shed. With the right garden accessories, dad can take on any landscape! Arm him with the essentials to get the job done efficiently and effectively. A sharp hand pruner like the Felco Pruner #2 or a long handled lopper for those hard-to-reach branches will be appreciated additions to his collection.


For the Grill Master

Gardening can really work up an appetite, and there’s nothing better than satisfying those summer craving with a tasty meal fresh off the grill! From tools and brushes to rib racks, kabob sets and pizza stones, Pike Nurseries offers a variety of grill accessories to get dad fired up for the season of sizzle! For the ultimate gift, choose from a selection of Saber Grills with infrared technology that locks in juice or the Kamado Joe Grill, which functions as a grill, smoker and oven combined! With top-notch tools and a high quality grill, dad will be serving up smokin’ recipes like a pro!


For the Nature Lover

If dad loves to take in the sights and sounds of nature, a birdhouse is a great gift choice for bringing the backyard to life! Pike Nurseries has a variety of bird feeders and seed to attract a colorful flurry of activity right to his doorstep. Feathered friends will also appreciate the safe haven from the summer heat.

For the Woodsman

For a truly thoughtful, long-lasting gift, plant a tree together to enjoy for years to come! Choose a foundation tree that will provide tasty fruit, like an apple or pear tree, or a smaller tree with stunning foliage, like a Japanese Maple. The experts at Pike Nurseries can provide professional advice for selecting and growing the best tree for the family yard. Plus, all trees and shrubs at Pike Nurseries are guaranteed for life.

For the Dreamer

Help turn dad’s dream landscape into a reality! A Pike Nurseries landscape design expert can do an on-site design consultation to assess existing conditions, including drainage, soil and water considerations and discuss his particular goals and wishes. The designer will draw a plan to scale and show the placement of plants, paths, decks, walls, drainage solutions and outdoor living areas. To book dad a landscape design appointment, contact a local Pike Nurseries store!

For the Green Thumb Guru

If dad loves gardening and being outdoors, take time to play in the dirt with him. There are so many teachable moments in the garden – from learning the value of growing fruits and vegetables to appreciating the beauty of nature. Whether it’s tending to flowers, picking edibles or planting seeds, time spent together is a gift he can cherish forever.

For any Dad

Let dad choose his own garden gift with a Pike Nurseries gift card. The card, available online or in-store, comes in any denomination and never expires.

    Alas, my father has reached an age where he is just happy to wake up healthy each day. Gift certificates have become the best thing for both of my parents for holidays, but someday my son and son in law will have yards and these gifts will all be great ideas.

  2. Elizabeth O. says:

    There’s a gift for every hobby that your dad may have, how awesome is that! I think this is one of the best guides I’ve seen so far. It’s nice to know that we have a lot of options!

  3. B says:

    I need a new grill! My husband isn’t much of a griller, though, so it would be for me rather than him, but I would still buy one!

    We could use a new spot to plant fruits and veggies, too, but I think I might forgo mine this year!

  4. Kathy says:

    I think these are all wonderful ideas! I don’t even have a grill yet, so I know we really need to get one of those. My husband would probably grill out a lot if I actually got one.

    These sound like really great, considerate gifts for gardening enthusiasts. I would love most of them myself.🙂
