What You'll Get
Lawns like to grow long and thick so that they can be teased into beehives or braided into cornrows to remind them of last year’s trip to Jamaica. Inspire a lawn's tonsorial ambitions with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a spring lawn-care treatment for a lawn up to 12,000 square feet from Barrier Lawn Care (a $121 value). This Groupon is valid in Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William, Clarke, and Montgomery counties.
Barrier Lawn Care's spring lawn-care treatment is part of its basic Turf Management Program. Although this Groupon is only valid for one treatment, Barrier recommends that this treatment be applied five times yearly to lavish lawns with seasonally appropriate weed control and fertilizers. During the spring treatment, greensward savants will armor grass against a spike-leafed weed onslaught with a pre-emergent crabgrass treatment that attacks the weed before it's even sprouted. Then, spot treatments for broadleaf weeds banish uninvited floral guests from backyard banquets. Finally, a slow-release fertilizer replenishes nutrient reserves used up during the long, cold winter when grass did nothing but stay inside and watch Cujo reruns on TV.
Stuffed with scrumptious plant food, treated lawns take advantage of spring's increased sunshine to grow lush and full. Also, since its blades are sheathed in sustainable substances approved by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, grass won't taint local waterways or the Chesapeake Bay with chemical runoff or fish-sickening quantities of Head & Shoulders shampoo.
