Today, MacGyver and I were discussing our fanasies for our next abode. Most of the conversation revolved around living in a completely Eco-Friendly house surrounded by forrests and gardens and all sorts of interesting and possibly wierd features for a Sustainable life. There was on thing, though, completely outside that theme, that he was emphatic about.
Where we live now, the soil and the blazing hot sun combine to create an environment all but completly inhospitable to grass and it drives my dear husband nuts. Every year he plants grass, and every year it dies. He refuses to give up, and he cannot be dissuaded from purchasing all manner of tools and devices to try to blanket our yard with soft green grass.
I won't be at all surprised if I come home one day to find the Scotts® Snap® Spreader System hiding out in my back yard. You see, this thing is right up MacGyver's ally. It's a tool that attempts to think of everything: The bag snaps right into the spreader, no pouring, lifting, or mixing necessary; and it even has an edge guard to keep the seeds from going where you don't want them (because heaven knows that's where they would really take hold for us, ha!).
If you're interested in this system, you should really check out the Snap perks on Facebook and the System Testimonial program for a lot of perks, promotions, and contests.
Once MacGyver attacks our "yard" again, I'll let you know how it turns out. For now, I'm off to research the business and environmental practices of the grass-seed production industry. Because heaven knows I'm not a fan of the practice of watering the yard (hence the dead grass...).
