The ground is filled with more than semicursed treasure chests and fully candied dinosaur bones. Let nature's soil-sitters watch over your subterranean cache with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of flowers, plants, and more at The Barn Nursery & Landscape Center in Cary. This Groupon is not valid between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. on May 8.
Family owned for more than 40 years, The Barn Nursery & Landscape Center's 10-acre spread is a smorgasbord of shrubs and sprouts. Planting a butterfly bush will attract nectar-suckers to its tiny clustered blooms and help decorate backyard barbecues ($10.99). Or green thumbs can pick up bright blooms such as daylilies ($10.99), black-eyed susans ($10.99), and shasta daisies ($10.99) to soak up light like petaled sun-sponges, while the bluish, heart-shaped leaves of an Elegans hosta ($15.99) thrive in shady climates such as the inside of a shoebox. Although not included with this Groupon, lazy loungers can have The Barn Nursery deliver trees, shrubs, and evergreens to their doorstep—they'll even set the plants in a hole, if you dig one with a shovel or shoulder-mounted rocket launcher.
The Barn Nursery & Landscape Center
The Barn Nursery & Landscape Center's landscape architects, horticulturists, and construction crews regard any stretch of dirt and grass as blank canvas. Upon that canvas, they paint vistas of domestic bliss, blending beautiful plants raised in their 10-acre nursery with elaborately designed custom patios, decks, and pools. They capably incorporate any elements into their design that a homeowner might desire, including built-in fire pits for old-fashioned pig roasts or new-fashioned ritualistic sacrifices of cell phones. They draw not only on their artistic eye to inform their designs, but also upon more than 50 years of experience turning backyard dreams into practical realities.
