What You'll Get
Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semi-successful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some color to your opposable digits with today's Groupon: for $850, you get a full garden design for areas 500–1,000 square feet from Terrascapes (a $1,750 value). This deal is valid for homes within a 35-mile radius of the Needham zip code (02492).
Terrascapes advocates environmentally sound landscaping and horticultural practices, using native plant material whenever possible, restricting chemical practices, and exercising water-wise planting. With today's Groupon, Terrascapes' verdant visionaries will use functional design elements, including water, stone, vegetation and light, to craft a unique design plan for small gardens up to 1,000 square feet (a $1,500 value). Over the course of a one- to two-hour consultation (a $250 value), Terrascapes designers will conduct measurements, assess preferences via a design questionnaire, and diagnose the property's intended use and spirit animal.
After time spent at their computer-assisted drawing board, Terrascapes technicians will conduct a subsequent one-hour site visit to deliver the freshly crafted design plans. Homeowners will receive one 24"x36" black-and-white garden design that defines hardscapes such as patios, walkways, pools, decks, and planting areas, as well as one black-and-white planting plan showing locations of intended flora and one photo booklet of recommended plants. Though today's Groupon covers the cost of design planning, it does not include the price of construction, which can range from $2,000 to $5,000 and up depending upon the complexity of the design, or the purchase of the plants themselves, which can range from $1,000 to $2,000. As a part of a commitment to eco-sound landscaping practices, Terrascapes strives to increase your yard's ground-cover in order to reduce the need for mulch, and it uses natural stones that can integrate seamlessly into your property's existing landscape and hobbit holes.
