Garden Gift Ideas For Men

Worx Aerocart Wheelbarrow

 The WORX Aerocart wheelbarrow is so much more than a wheelbarrow. It easily turns into an extended dolly, flower pot mover, trailer mover, bag holder or cylinder carrier. There is so much you can do with WORX Aerocart accessories that the man in your life will feel like he’s getting a bunch of tools. With the WORX wheelbarrow convertor kit, it can become a snowplow or garden wagon.

The two oversized, flat-free tires never need inflating. The way the best WORX Aerocart is balanced makes the load easier to manage. In fact, a 200-pound load feels like 17 pounds. The Aerocart wheelbarrow can hold up to 300 pounds and about three cubic feet. As a dolly conversion, the WORX cart can carry 80 pounds.

Included with this wheelbarrow is a flower pot strap, cylinder holder, bag holder and mesh rock mover. WORX tools are well made and last a long time. I think this wheelbarrow is perfect if you’re looking for grandad garden gifts. Pop a few other gardening gifts for him in the wheelbarrow like some herbs and potting mix and he’ll be a happy man.

Garden Gadgets Gifts For Men

There is something about gadgets that men seem to love — women, too. I think it might be the promise of making life easier through technology. With our basic needs for survival mostly taken care of, we crave something more. Gadgets give us at least an illusion of control in an otherwise chaotic world or garden. 

To fill that need for gadgets in the garden, we’ve come up with the best gadget gifts for men.

If it rains or is forecasted to rain it will adjust the watering schedule.

This smart sprinkler controller is super easy to install and works with platforms such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Seriously is this not one of the top gardening gifts in this guide?

Air-Pot Garden Propagation Pot

These Superoots Air-Pots come in several sizes and are great for starting seeds or seedling and transplanting them. What makes them so cool and gadgety is that you can use them for two seasons — the roots have plenty of space to grow between the recycled plastic mesh. 

For Father’s Day gardening gifts or any holiday when you want to put a smile on the face of a gardening man, these pots are perfect.

The Air-Pots can be used on plants and trees and produces non-spiraling root systems that are impossible to develop in any other available container. The Superoots Air-Pot is circular in shape with a perforated sidewall. There are no flat surfaces due to the inward and outward pointed cones, which eliminates any chance of starting the spiraling process as well as dramatically increasing growth rates. Plus, it’s tough to overwater since the water drains right through.

You get two with each order and they come in 1-gallon, 2-gallon, 3-gallon, 5-gallon and 7-gallon equivalent sizes.

This Husqvarna robotic lawn mower has a powerful mower that keeps the lawn short and tidy while its owner is off doing other things. The Husqvarna robotic lawn mower 450X can mow a larger yard – up to 1.25 acres.

It doesn’t even matter if your yard isn’t a perfect square or even flat. The Husqvarna robotic mower has GPS navigation to help it manage complex yards. and nimbly climbs and descends slopes up to 25-degrees. The three pivoting blades cut from all directions, which helps prevent mold and gives the lawn a nice, clean-cut look.

One of the best features of this robot mower is that it adapts its mowing length to the growth pattern of your lawn. It uses the GPS to create a map of your lawn and adjusts its pattern to mow the lawn evenly. If the Husqvarna Automower needs to run through a small opening to get from one section of the lawn to another repeatedly, it won’t scalp that area. This is truly a smart mower.

The Husq mower will return to the charger when the battery gets low or when the weather gets too bad, but it does mow in the rain. So Dad can just sit back and relax. Seriously, unusual gifts for him don’t get much better than this.
