The grass is greener

We think the Scotts TurfBuilder Grass Seed is the best option for most people. The ability to grow in the sun or shade makes it perfect for your entire lawn, instead of just the front or back. And their addition of WaterSmart PLUS coating on each seed will make sure that they have the best chance of sprouting into beautiful new blades of grass.

For those who want to test growing wheatgrass for pets, we recommend the Smartykat Sweet Greens Cat Grass Kit. You'll get everything you need to start growing the grass, the cost of the kit is low, and the container won't take up much space in your house or apartment.
