Pretty weather in early spring weather scares me sometimes. It’s almost like you can’t realllly enjoy it for fear that someone will pull the rug out from under ya the next day. Mr. Weatherman says that we’re going to have pretty nice weather for days and days to come, so I took the risk and decided to do a little planting.
A big old bench sat in this spot for over a year. It never really got sat on and was falling apart, so we finally put it out of its misery and cleaned up the spot. And there was no grass to be seen… bummer. It’s ok, though, because the gang at Pennington Seed already taught me how to handle it!
Just spread an even coat and water until it turns dark green and you’re set. As a pre-mixed combination product (mulch, seed and fertilixer, Pennington 1-Step Complete makes it easy to patch and repair trouble areas. It’s perfect to patch in the little spots (or big ones) that just seem to “happen.” When watered, the professional-grade mulch in Pennington 1-Step Complete™ forms a protective layer over the soil to help retain moisture during the critical seed germination and establishment stages. The tackifier in the mulch keeps the protective layer in place so seeds will not wash away on small hills and slopes or during heavy rains.
After being at their facilities in Portland recently, the samples show that we’ll have a beautiful space in only 4 weeks…. and I’ll be glad to report how it goes! Pennington Seed is focused on research and testing, quality control and consistency in all phases of the seed lifecycle—from breeding and development to growing and manufacturing. The result is fuller, thicker grass and a healthier, greener lawn. Being there myself helped me understand how it all works, and I can’t wait to see the results.
