A Lawn So Thick You Can Bounce an Egg!

September 4, 2012

During my Scotts Training Institute instructor days back in the 70’s (this is where Scotts Retailers learn how to help their customers), we did a little demo on the Scotts lawn in front of our Marysville, Ohio training center.  I gave retailers a couple dozen eggs to toss in the air to see how many bounced on the healthy, thick Scotts lawn.  Since I did not have video from back then,  we shot some video about 25 years later using this same demonstration to show the lawn thickness you get from feeding your lawn 4 times a year.

Since a thicker lawn is a great way to crowd out weeds and since fall is the time of year you should be planning at least two lawn feedings (now and again in 6 weeks), I thought you would enjoy watching this video to see the eggs bounce on a thick, green Scotts lawn.  (Note:  Some state extension services, like Virginia, Maryland and others recommend three fall feedings.)

    • Hi Mamion
      From your comments, it sounds like you have a lawn service taking care of your lawn. Since my blog postings are about do-it-yourself lawn and gardening, I am not much help. If you need to contact Scotts Lawn Care Service give them a call at 1-888-736-3478. Good luck with your lawn.
