Holiday Gift Ideas for the Weekend Landscaper
Everyone wants their home to have curb appeal, but doing the actual work? Well, that's a totally different story. Of course, there is always someone in the family who's hanging in the garden or touching up the yard. This holiday season, don't bore them with a coffee mug or pair of socks. Get the gear that can knock out an army of weeds or trim unkempt branches. Here are some cool gift ideas for that weekend landscaper in your life.
Weed Out the Weeds
You might look at your lawn and see a disgusting mass of weeds, but they see a therapeutic conquest to rid the garden of an invading nuisance. Wrap a Craftsman weed wacker and stick it under the tree, and you’ve given them the greatest weapon in their rightful reclamation. An easy-pull system makes firing it up a cinch, so they may actually start hoping for miniature intruders to sprout up for upheaval.

This Gift is Off the Chain
Who wouldn't love the powerful feeling of cutting through rogue branches with a powerful chain saw? Harness a commanding 42cc engine to cut through any eye sores that pop up throughout the yard. Clearing out unsightly or dead shrubs will quickly become a chore they'll actually want to do. Now if you could only get them to clear out the cluttered closet.

Push It Over the HEDGE
No one can boast about a manicured yard until it's been shaped, sculpted and beautified to perfection. Encourage your front-yard fanatic to pamper the hedges, bushes and shrubs with a fresh cut using a 22" cordless hedge trimmer for that just-out-of-the-salon look. The heavy hauling of all those grass clippings can wait, this is the closest thing your plants will ever get to a spa day.
