Christmas is just days away, which means time is running short and lines are running long. We’ve got a few great ideas for last-minute holiday gifts for the person who has “everything” and the person who has no idea what they want. This Christmas, take your gift giving outdoors!
The best part about gifts from Neave: You won’t have to worry about finding enough wrapping paper to put these big-deal presents under the tree. These gifts are ones that keep on giving, long after the garbage truck has come to pick up your share of the 25 million tons of extra garbage we’ll throw away this holiday season.
Here are five ideas that may help you find the perfect gift.
For the Seasonal Entertainer: Year-Round Container Gardening Service
The quickest way to spruce up your home before a party or event: Just add flowers! Whether you’re setting the table, taking the party to the backyard or just creating a warm welcome at the front door, plants are the shortcut to a great time. But what if the beds aren’t in full bloom? That’s where container gardens come in.
For the social butterfly in your life, Neave Landscaping’s design experts can help design containers for every season that will add color and life to your outdoor living spaces, and they can even help care for those vibrant containers between plantings.
For the Weekend Warrior: Lawn Mowing Service
If someone in your household loves to wear their cutoff sweatpants and green-stained tennis shoes every Saturday morning like a badge of honor, maybe it’s time to show them how weekends should really be done.
Gift the weekend warrior in your home with regular lawn maintenance — it also happens to come with the gift of freedom, relaxation and a lot less sweat and elbow grease. Maybe combine that gift with a new pair of shoes that will actually stay white!
For the Security Buff: New Fencing
Beautifully designed, well-kept fencing adds a lot to a property in terms of curb appeal, but its main function is maintaining homeowners’ privacy and keeping the property safe and secure from intruders. Give the worrywart in your home one less thing to worry about with the gift of new security fencing this Christmas. The experts at Neave Carpentry can help design and install a fence that suits their design style and need for privacy and security.
Add on to that gift with motion-sensor lighting for the backyard, and you’ll have the security buff on your Christmas list believing in Santa Claus all
For the Summer Savorer: A Backyard Swimming Pool
In National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Clark Griswold fantasizes about having a backyard swimming pool, one he would buy with his Christmas
bonus check — you know, the one that never comes? If someone in your household has been dreaming about hosting pool parties of their own — with or without awkward Cousin Eddie — surprise them with the go-ahead to start planning their backyard swimming paradise!
Neave Pools’ designers work year round to help customers create their ideal swimming pools, from the shape and size all the way down to the extra features (how about a slide?) and the coping around the pool.
For the Armchair Point Guard: Backyard Basketball Court
What could be more fun than enjoying the first sunny days of spring than going outside to shoot some hoops with the family? This holiday season, go one better than the rickety hoop in the driveway. Design and install a deluxe backyard basketball court for those spontaneous one-on-one shootouts and games of HORSE?
Basketball not the sport of choice in your household? Neave Sports can also install putting greens, bocce courts, tennis courts, athletic fields and even roller and ice rinks.
Sure, some of the best gifts come in small packages, but here at Neave Group Outdoor Solutions, we believe the best gifts have to be carefully planned and installed on your property.
