Lawn & Garden Care: How-To Bring Life Back to Your Lawn- The Easy Way! PLUS $50 American Express Giveaway (Sponsored Partnership With Pennington Smart Seed)

I’m a sponsored blog partner with Pennington and participated in their Smart Seed Program that I am so excited to share with you!

(See disclosure at the bottom) I have a terrible black thumb! Seriously I struggle with keeping our yard looking nice. After the drought over the past year my poor yard is so sad. I decided last week that this is the perfect time to get out side and give it some TLC. The weather is in the 70-80 degree range and the sun is shining. I know that it won’t be long till we cross over into the 100 degree days so I need to enjoy this while I can.

Don’t you love the brands that are there to help people like us that are not pros? I am specifically referring to people like me that need a lot of help! I will spend a little more on a product if it will make my life easier. But I really love it when I find an affordable brand that makes things easier for me! That is why I am excited to share Pennington Smart Seed with you. How To - Pennnington Smart Seed

After researching lawn care products I was drawn to Pennington. Here are the top 3 facts that helped me determine why I wanted to try Pennington Smart Seed:

  1. Pennington Smart Seed remains green for up to three weeks without water and requires up to 30 percent less water year after year versus ordinary seed.
  2. By utilizing a high-quality seed that requires less water and contains no filler, lawns are more resilient and easier to maintain.
  3. Each seed in Pennington Smart Seed is enhanced with Pennington’s exclusive MYCO Advantage seed technology—introducing beneficial micro-organisms that attach themselves to the emerging seed roots for denser, deeper roots.

Watering is something that takes a lot of time and energy. Does your lawn suffer because you are trying to save time and water (money)? Mine does! That is another reason I was drawn to Pennington Smart Seed. Check this out!

Fast Facts: Drought, Water Use & Your Yard

  1. In 2012, the U.S. experienced the hottest year on record and two-thirds of the country faced drought—the most ever experienced.
  2. Thirty-six states anticipate continued local, regional or statewide water shortages, even under non-drought conditions.
  3. Did you know: Americans spend on average 73 hours a year maintaining their lawns—watering being a main focus of time and energy.
  4. Depending on their region, homeowners use between 30%-70% of their water outdoors. Lawns require approximately 1 inch of water per week to stay green in the summer, which equates to about 2,500 gallons of water per week to keep an average-sized lawn green.  (WOW!)

You can see why I was excited to give Pennington Smart Seed a try on my yard. We went to Lowes and found a great selection of the product. It was so affordable that I even got some extras like a bird feeder, bird seed and outdoor umbrella for the patio table. Since I have completely bare areas as well as areas that need some help coming back to life I purchased the fertilizer and smart seed bags. Then went home and got to work. (Seriously thought this was not much work!)
