5 Ways to Help Dad Relax in the Garden

From chief lawn mower to the master of the outdoor grill, dads are often portrayed as the handyperson around the yard. If you’re stuck doing all of the maintenance tasks, gardening can seem like a lot of work and no play. This Father’s Day, help the dads in your life relax in the garden.

Create a Quiet Place

Like everyone else in the family, dads need some quiet time. The rise of the man shed has turned the traditional shed into a quiet space for reading, enjoying a game of pool, or working on a hobby. If you have an old shed in the garden, think about refurbishing it as a quiet getaway.

If you don’t have the space for a shed, think about what the dads in your family like to do to relax. If you have a pond or a quiet section of your garden, add a bench. Install a hammock between two trees. Create a garden full of his favorite childhood plants. Think of ways to cultivate relaxation in the garden, and you’ll create a place that dad and the entire family will enjoy.

Make Space for Connection

Fathers’ Day is about family, and this Fathers’ Day you can celebrate that connection by creating spaces where dads and kids can connect. Add space for toys, make a micro mini golf course, or add a basketball hoop to the back garden. Whether it’s a new swing, a space to play catch, or a play space that’s near his home office, adding opportunities to connect with the kids will make his Fathers’ Day shine.

Dad-Friendly Landscaping

What’s dad-friendly landscaping? That entirely depends on your dad. If the dad in your family is an enthusiastic gardener, a gift of plants or a new garden bed will be a wonderful surprise for Fathers’ Day. Dads who prefer the outdoor grill and relaxing on the deck might prefer grill tools, a deck chair, or a delicious dinner.

Reduce Maintenance

The gift of time is a very meaningful gift as well. If your dad, husband, or father spends a lot of time weeding, watering, trimming, mowing, and cleaning outdoors, give him some time off. Have the kids take over the mowing for a week with a mowing gift certificate, or arrange to have your pruning or gutter cleaning professionally done this year. If he’s responsible for many of the home maintenance tasks, add devices that make dad’s life easier, such as cordless mowers or gutter guards that prevent leaves from falling into the gutter in the first place.

When you’re looking for ways to make home maintenance simpler, talk with Harry Helmet. Our unique Gutter Helmet system makes fall cleanup easy. Gutter Guards not only prevent leaves from falling in your gutter, they take away the potential for other headaches such as backed-up drains, roof leaks, and damaged siding. Relax in your garden this year by installing a Gutter Guard on your home.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
