Apart from creating a great first impression of your home, a yard provides a place for pets to run free and children to build their own bomb shelters. Replenish your stockpile of landscape knowledge with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a two-hour home-landscape consultation from Have Spade Will Travel (a $150 value). This deal is valid in Boerne and the greater San Antonio metro area; a $50 travel fee will apply to residents of other areas.
Backed by more than 20 years of hands-on experience with plants and landscaping materials, Have Spade Will Travel's Keith Amelung helps home landscapes spring to life through sustainable, organic methods. Whether troubled by too much shade, flower-hungry animals, or newly sentient garden gnomes, beleaguered lawn rangers can find answers to their landscape woes in the course of a two-hour consultation. After touring the grounds, the consultant will discuss how to put yard and garden plans into action without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, resulting in lower water usage, healthier soil, and safer spaces for families and pets.
If time allows, depending on the area to be landscaped and the complexity of the plan, Amelung will pull out his pencil, graph paper, and pocket bonsai set to create an easy-to-follow landscape plan, complete with lists of recommended plants. Those requiring more elaborate arrangements or additional services can schedule them with Have Spade Will Travel, and $75 will be applied toward subsequent labor fees.
