Grassology with Bob Villa available from www.AsSeenOnTV.com or www.Grassology.com
In this ad Bob Villa tells us about Grassology, the science of grass.
What Bob Villa says:
A great lawn can make a house look like a home, add value to your property, and it’s fun for the whole family. Hi, Bob Villa here with a breakthrough in grass seed that can give you great, green grass. It’s called Grassology.
It’s grass seed based on science that’s guaranteed to give you great, green grass and once it’s established you’ll quickly begin to see a gorgeous, green lawn that’s virtually maintenance free.
Grassology is patent-pending and it’s the original low maintenance seed blend developed by Pearl’s Premium and you’ve probably seen it in the news. You see, regular grass requires frequent watering and fertilizing. But Grassology’s roots extend 4-times deeper than ordinary grass to reach the good stuff that’s underground like water and nutrients. And the best part, Grassology reaches a dwarf-height, so there’s a lot less mowing, guaranteed. With Grassology you’ll have more time to enjoy your lawn.
Check this out, that’s the Grassology difference (showing before and after photos of grass and lawns). We’ve all seen bare patches, bald-spots or brown spots caused by pets. Try Grassology, it naturally fights disease, insects, even weeds so you have a lawn that looks like a fairway. No one mowed this lawn in months. Check out the Grassology difference after a harsh drought.
If your lawn isn’t thicker, fuller and greener in 60 days, you’ll get your money back and best of all it’s made right here in the USA.

Never once did he say that Grassology will fix, cure, prevent, or do anything about bare patches, brown spots from pets or bald-spots in your grass. He made a comment that we have all seen these things.
Bob Vila makes some statements in this commercial that many might think are intentional attempts to fool the viewer into believing that this product does more than it actually can.
