As *ahem* co-conspirator Barry Morgan is set to wake (ha! he’s already up) in Amish Country, OH, I figure it was good time to do a quick follow up on my most recent manufacturer visit. Barry is visiting with the Genie Company — the makers of industry-leading garage door openers, and I am sure you will be reading more about that here soon.
During the visit to Pennington‘s NexGen Research Center, the group “simulated” growing grass in a small (approx. 1×1 foot) tray. We did two “plots” each. First, we used a Pennington Smart Seed
I videoed part of that session on my phone and uploaded to our YouTube channel.
Monday this week, we got an update on our plots.
The Experiment :: The Results
With little soil preparation, we spread the pre-mixed product across our second plot. (For me, it was kinda an afterthought – I was *ahem* multi-tasking. ha!) Over the next several weeks, each plot received regular watering. Below, pics of my little pups, plus analysis courtesy of NexGen. (The pics below offer a great reference on what your own progress in planting with 1 Step Complete should look like.)
* DAY 6
Analysis :: At six days after initial seeding, there is little noticeable growth. This is as expected. During the first days of planting, it’s typical for a seed to absorb water but not swell to the point of bursting open. Depending on the variety of grass, germination is not usually visible until at least 8 days. Some turf varieties take well over 14 days to germinate.
* DAY 10 AND DAY 14
Analysis ::After 10 days, there is a high percentage of noticeable germination. This growth continued throughout the first two weeks.
Pennington® 1 Step Complete
* DAY 21 AND DAY 28
Analysis :: At 21 days and 28 days, the plot planted with Pennington 1 Step Complete

Disclosure: While companies like Pennington (and Genie for that matter) often pay for our expenses in visiting their facilities, and/or provide product for us to use and review, opinions expressed in posts are our own. I was under no obligation to post the results from this experiment, I simply felt it provides some valuable information.
Thanks for reading.
