Neglected walls tend to rebel by shedding their paint and wearing punk-rock posters. Show your home some tender loving care with today's Groupon: for $99, you get $250 worth of Christmas-light installation and handyman services from Brandon Bruce Wilson. This Groupon is valid for homes in north central San Antonio, Boerne, and Shavano Park.
Experienced handyman Brandon Bruce Wilson's residential artists travel to patrons' abodes to string festive Christmas lights and render lawns lush and spotless. Nimble staffers climb ladders to light up dwellings with strands of ornamental lights ($3/linear foot on first floor, $4/foot second floor) that sparkle like beacons to entice Santa or vacationing aliens in for milk and cookies. Crews restore order to disheveled lawns, raking leaves, cleaning gutters, and trimming bushes ($25/hour), and beautify homes with adroit rock arrangements and outdoor lighting installations ($150–$225/fixture). Clients interested in adding larger projects such as ponds, patios, or mixed-use coliseums to their backyard can commission blueprint renderings for the potential work they would require ($250–$500).
