Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semi-successful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some color to your opposable digits with today's Groupon: for $75, you get three flats holding 36 annual flowers each plus installation from Apex Landscaping (a $150 value). Choose from impatiens, begonias, cosmos, cleomes, marigolds, snapdragons, or petunias (excluding wave petunias). This Groupon is valid within 40 miles of Northbrook.
Founded in 1991 by an enterprising high-school freshman, Apex Landscaping dispatches more than 60 personable personnel to groom clients’ lawns and gardens. With today’s deal, choose between seven varieties of annual flowers to decorate your garden this summer—sprinkle gardens with dainty impatiens, light up a field with some fiery marigolds, or plant sharp snapdragon spikes below windowsills to deter pie thieves. A landscape technician will help homeowners decide where to place plants, then an army of installers will dimple gardens with holes to house 108 root systems. Upon request, they can also sprinkle new arrivals with organic fertilizer or sing them chlorophyll-themed lullabies to soothe the transition into their new homes.
