Let me set the scene. Your child goes over to a friend’s house and comes home gushing about how much fun they had playing on the lawn and then having a picnic. Your child then asks if they can invite a friend over to do the same at your house and you have to let them down because your lawn looks like a disaster site that is not welcoming to, you know, people of any kind.
To say I am lacking in the lawn maintenance skills department would be a gross understatement. I have never been able to figure out how to keep my lawn weed-free and growing the way my neighbours do and I’m getting tired from the struggle, so when I got the offer of help from the people at Scotts Miracle-Gro, I jumped at the chance!
As you can see from the above photo I have my work cut out for me but I have accepted the #ScottsWeedBGon Challenge and I’m hoping to finally create a lawn that we can use and be proud of as a family. I have already using the Scotts® Turf Builder® Green MAX™ Lawn Food as it gives my grass a deeper green within 3 days and also helps to provide the nutrients needed for a healthy lawn to develop strong roots that can help to crowd out weeds. As you can see I also have a lack of grass in certain areas, so I will be applying some Scotts® Turf Builder® Grass Seed in hopes of growing a lawn my kids will be happy to play on. Finally, the Scotts® EcoSense Weed B Gon 5L Ready-To-Use Spray with Wand Applicator will help kill my weeds without harming my lawn, and the battery powered applicator makes applying it a breeze!
Now, I’m not exactly sure what the dress code is for this type of work but I think this should just about cover it, right??
I don’t really want to do the challenge alone though, so I invite you to come along with me and I’ll even make it worth your while! Simply snap a photo of the weeds in your yard, post them to Instagram with the hashtag #ScottsWeedBGon and tag both myself (@CanadianDadBlog) and Scotts (@ScottsMiracleGroCanada) and I’ll be handing out some great coupons for some Scotts Weed B Gon!
In case that wasn’t enough for you, you can also head over to the @ScottsMiracleGroCanada Instagram page now until May 31st and enter to win a $250 IKEA gift card, plus a phone consultation with lawn & garden expert Frankie Flowers! Yeah, I know, you’re welcome!
Please follow along on my social channels as I share my #ScottsWeedBGon journey to a better lawn and don’t be afraid to visit the Scotts Facebook and Instagram channels for tips and inspiration for your next project!
