Living roof birdhouse

A living birdhouse makes a great Mother's Day gift

More than just a regular birdhouse, a living roof birdhouse will allow mom to grow grass, succulents, moss or other small plants right on top of the roof.

A living roof birdhouse is the perfect way to practice container gardening (if mom is interested) and provides the birds in her neighbourhood a cool and safe place to relax.

Garden sundial

Classic and timeless, a garden sundial is certain to be a gift mom won’t be expecting – but she’ll love anyway. And it’s certain to find a prominent place in her garden, too.

Depending on the garden sundial you get, you can actually have it engraved with a personal message telling mom just how much you appreciate her.

Installing a garden sundial is easy, too:

  1. Select a spot that’s level and in full sunshine
  2. Point the arm of your sundial so that it’s pointed north (true north, not magnetic north)

Interlocking stone pavers

If you’re want to really surprise mom this Mother’s Day, why not give her the option of transforming her garden completely with new interlocking stone pavers.

Let her select the look, style and type of interlocking stones  for a redesigned garden patio or a new interlocking brick walkway.

Then, let her design the stone garden of her dreams and help bring it to life for her by hiring a skilled contractor to build it for her.

Cast iron fire bowl

Bring warmth to mom’s garden with a magnificent cast iron bowl which will hold a decent sized fire safely inside.

Tough but attractive – and with sleek curves – a cast iron fire bowl will have mom enjoying her days – and her nights – in her garden.
