Scotts Water Smart (just good marketing?)
Hi folks. I'm looking to reseed an area with Bermuda seed, I already have bermuda everywhere else. So of course the guys at Lowe's and Home Depot say "go wit Scott's, there's is the best brand." I tried to explain it's not about the brand but about the seed variety, but of course they can only say "Scott's is the best," because the scotts vendors bring them t-shirts and crap and fill their heads with propoganda.
So I got this vague sales point on Scotts water smart technology where they do something to the seed that actually makes the grass require less water. I asked how does that work and they couldn't explain it but said "They have commercials on TV right now about it" and "you could check it out on the web."
So I checked it out on the web, this is what it says,
"A lawn maintained the Water Smart way grows strong, deep roots that absorb nutrients better and uses water more efficiently, making the most of every drop." Sounds like a maintenance program to me but they are marketing it like it's some patented technology. Does anyone else know anything about this?
Personally I have a real aversion to huge companies especially since all I hear from the automotons is ?Scotts is the best." Why, "Because they are the best."
