Weeds are a lot like rabbits: they hide in grassy lots, reproduce rapidly, and their stems can be used as good-luck charms. Stockpile lawn talismans with today's Groupon: for $75, you get two springtime fertilizer applications from Eastern Grounds Maintenance (a $178 value).
Family owned and operated by Peter and William Schultz, Eastern Grounds Maintenance provides top-quality landscaping and property-maintenance services. With today's deal, professional plant pamperers will apply a pre-emergent fertilizer layer to 1/3 acre lots, blocking new weeds from growing, and then return two weeks later to spread a post-emergent layer that will kill any wily weeds that managed to sprout through the original fertilizer shield. Eastern Grounds Maintenance uses Fischer and Son fertilizers—the same brand used by several NFL stadiums and baseball fields in the DC area—to ensure that yards stay pest-free, robust, and so immaculately green that confused Baltimore Ravens will show up on your lawn to tackle nosy neighbors and punt decorative garden gnomes. Multiple Groupons can be purchased with today's deal to treat larger yards.
