Lawn Care is a Snap with Scotts®

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I never really thought about the yard much when I was growing up.  It was (mostly) green and needed mowed periodically.  I thought dandelions belonged there.  Then I grew up, got married, and we moved into our first house...
That's when my husband informed me that those pretty yellow flowers are really weeds, and they don't belong in his yard.  The goal is to have a healthy, green lawn without all those extra weeds.  He's been using Scotts® Weed & Feed® for years now - to kill the weeds and help the grass to build strong, deep roots.  Those roots are important because, while the grass is lush and green right now while there's plenty of moisture, it's challenged during the dry periods of summer.  Also, the stronger the grass is, the less opportunity the weeds have to grow.  And that's about all I understand about it - except that it's a constant battle, especially with those dandelions, because no matter how well he takes care of the yard, if the neighbors don't do the same, those dandelions are bound to spread back into our yard.
With the new Scotts® Snap® Spreader System there's really no excuse for not taking care of their yards.  It looks easy enough for anybody to use - even me.  Not that I plan to do it, since I have a husband who takes care of that stuff, but...  What's really cool about this system is that there's no cutting, opening, or pouring from heavy bags.  Just connect the Snap Pac to the Snap Spreader, and you're ready to go.  There are no settings to mess with either - the Spreader auto-sets the proper flow rate.  And when you're done, just remove the Snap Pac from the Spreader, and it auto-seals, making it easy to store.  How cool is that?
Watch how easy it is:

Is that guy's garage too clean, or what?  Anyway, I especially love that the Spreader System has that EdgeGuard feature that keeps product where you want it…. on the lawn! 
 Walking every morning, I can always tell when people have treated their lawns, because there's always a line of it out in the street, and I always try to avoid it.  This EdgeGuard should eliminate that problem.
For a super easy way to take care of your lawn, be sure to check out the new  Scotts® Snap® Spreader System - they'll even tell you which product your lawn needs and when.  For us, the first feeding should be about now.  Also, be sure to like Snap perks on Facebook to learn about promotions and contests from Scotts.  They've got some amazing prizes to give away.  This month the grand prize is a trip for two to the 2012 All Star Game and World Series, or you could win an outdoor patio set or a $25 Walmart gift card.  Get started now to have more chances to win.    Advertisement
