A Beautiful Lawn: No Scythes Necessary

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Scotts ad from 1957Lawns were once only for the very wealthy. Before the mid-19th century, you had to get the servants to cut and scythe your recreational lawns and gardens - all by hand, of course. And you can imagine how long that took.

The invention of the first lawn mower (then called the mowing machine) in the 1830s helped. So did the development of special grass seed, around the same time, by the Shakers, when they weren’t busy making beautiful furniture inside their houses. All this meant that more and more people could enjoy the smooth, emerald-green softness of lush grass lawns and yards. Since then, we’ve never looked back - except to admire the grass, of course.

Lawn mowers from 1975In 1868 Orlando McLean Scott, a returning Civil War veteran, founded what was to become the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company of Marysville, Ohio. Orlando Scott dealt in crop seeds for farmers, but by the beginning of the 20th century Scotts was specializing in grass seed and products geared towards making lawns grow beautifully in the spring and stay beautiful all summer long.
