What's the Secret To a Green Lawn

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I do not have a green thumb, so I'm hoping that you guys can help me out here.
Every year when the snow melts, this is how our lawn looks.
Not the prettiest, right?
However, I've seen other lawns that look much more like
this:
So what's the secret? How can I get my lawn to look as spectacularly green?

I was reading up on this subject and was intrigued by the Scotts® Snap® Spreader System.
* I like that it's a no mess, no guess spreader system. Taking the guesswork out of it, would make this so much easier for me.
* I like that the system is auto-set for the proper flow rate. 
* I like the EdgeGuard feature that keeps the product on the lawn (instead of the driveway and sidewalk).
* I like that the Snap Pac self-seals so it's super easy to store (eliminating the half empty bags cluttering up my garage).

So have any of you ever used it? I watched this testimonial and I'm nearly convinced.
I'm also following along with Snap perks on Facebook now in case they post some helpful tips and/or coupons.

I'd love to hear your input on this subject!

  1. Hi Tam,

    My wife is an avid follower of your blog and enjoy's many of your crafing ideas. I do not craft but I do maintain a golf course and have a 4 year degree in turfgrass management believe it or not. The key to a green lawn is proper fertilization and cultural practaices, like dethatching, and aerating. To green your lawn up faster. I'd first mow it a notch lower than what you usually do, or dethatch it, with a power rake that you can rent from most equipment rental stores. Next I'd fertilize it with a fertilizer high in Nitrogen, but don't over apply you could burn your lawn. As far as the "Snap" spreader, it looks handy and convenient, but you are limited in the type of fertilizer you can buy. I'm guessing it will be more expensive too. Scotts does make good fertilizer but the same results can be achieved with less expensive brands, it just takes a little education. That being said good luck with the lawn. I hope this was helpful, and sorry it was so long :) Paul Harris
