The first Kansas City Grass Pad opened as a sod farm on 700 acres in Farley, Missouri. No telephone, no running water, just two light bulbs, one outdoor privy, and an old dairy barn.
People drove for miles to find a gravel road, the old barn, and the 700 acres of lush green sod. Uncle had the program to grow the finest sod: "Imitate nature! Plant the finest seed. Feed it. Prevent crabgrass and weeds." Why that’s so simple, it was Idiot Proof.
Customers wanted to know the secret. How did Uncle keep his sod so lush and green? They said, "Tell us the secret so we can make our lawns lush and green like your sod farm." “Uncle, write down that idiot proof program. Put it on a yellow sheet so it won’t get lost."
Now people knew Uncle’s secret. They drove for miles down a gravel road to buy the finest Grass Pad Seed and Uncle’s Idiot Proof Lawn Program.
