7) Knee Pads

We don’t always want to, but yard work often requires getting on our hands and knees to do some dirty work. These knee pads will help protect your dad.









8) Weather Station

Sometimes you have to do yard work regardless of the weather, but a handy weather meter like this at least lets your dad know how to dress for the weather. We have a weather station similar to this one and we look at it daily.

  • remote signal goes outside and sends data to the screen (which is indoors)
  • the indoor screen can be plugged in or ran off battery
  • the remote signal runs off batteries (not included)








9) Rain Water Downspout Diverter

A downspout diverter like this one allows your dad to harvest rain water and use that to water his plants or garden. This diverter fits a 2″x3″ gutter downspout and then you collect the water in a separate barrel..

My Fiskars Stand-up Weeder

With a stand-up weeder like this your dad can weed his yard without having to bend over.

  • we have one and it makes weeding way easier on the back

12) “Dirt to Soil” book by Gabe Brown

A book about regenerative agricultural and how a North Dakota farmer converted his farm from a failing conventional agricultural farm to a regenerative farm (and how his crops and profits bloomed).
