An unkempt lawn can hold many hidden threats, such as thorns, exotic insects, and a community of tax-evading lawn flamingos. Stay safe with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of plants and landscaping supplies at Margolis Nursery in Ypsilanti.
For more than a quarter century, Margolis Nursery has helped beautify landscapes with its selection of plants, trees, and supplies. A hearty collection of shrubbery cures the doldrums of a dejected lawn, with 2-gallon gold-cluster forsythias promising to brighten yards with bushes of golden yellow ($14) and 5-gallon endless summer hydrangeas joyously deploying their cool hues ($41). The 6- to 7-foot flowering dogwood ($100), famous for its bunches of hot-colored bracts and inability to operate a motor vehicle, spruces the vertical plane with its delicate umbels. Beneath all manicured shrubbery is a Monty Python reference and a solid foundation, obtainable in a variety of soils and mulches such as topsoil ($21/cu. yd.) or hardwood mulch ($27/cu. yd.), which brings out the vibrant colors of the plants it supports with its earthy tones. Margolis' green-thumbed staff provides free consultations for tentative gardeners and lawn enthusiasts ready to fill in the void between the sidewalk and the house.
