If plants aren't held often enough as babies, they eventually lash out at their owners by hanging out with weeds and purposefully flunking the SATs. Put them in pots and ease topiary attachment issues with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of garden and outdoor décor from Pink Red Kelly's online store.
Pink Red Kelly beautifies backyards with playful water features, solemn stone statues, and other outdoor accessories. Browse its Coupon page to peruse a plethora of planters, including a cast-stone Faccia planter ($79.75–$542.25), which has an unsealed stone surface that will weather over time like Roman ruins and botched nose jobs. Spend an afternoon locked in a staring contest with the four-pointed star-eye at the center of Covington's cyclopic outdoor wall fountain ($169.95), or train a stone scottie dog statue ($162.25) to sit, stay, and grow a thick coat of lichen.
For do-it-yourselfers, articles on Pink Red Kelly's site instruct readers on outdoorsy undertakings such as soil testing, selecting a composter, and training ivy to spell out the names of famous suffragettes on brick walls.
