Whether it’s playing catch with the kids, learning to garden, connecting with neighbors, or just sitting back and relaxing, we’re enjoying our outdoor spaces like never before. On the heels of a surge in lawn and garden care that drove more than 25 million new consumers to the category in the past year, ScottsMiracle-Gro today unveils its first-ever Super Bowl commercial. The spot, which will run during the second quarter, highlights those special outdoor moments we’ve all grown to love and appreciate.
The ad encourages gardeners—both new and experienced—to “Keep Growing” with the chance to win the lawn and garden of their dreams. Forty-two lucky winners (one for each day between the game and the first day of spring) will receive $15,000 and a personalized consultation with a lawn and garden expert.
“With the unparalleled passion and enthusiasm we’re seeing around lawn and garden care, particularly among new Millennial homeowners, it seemed only fitting to kick off our busy spring season under the bright lights of Super Bowl LV,” said Josh Peoples, chief marketing officer, ScottsMiracle-Gro. “Our backyards have always offered us an accessible, yet meaningful connection to the outdoors and with this giveaway, we’re giving even more people an opportunity to experience all that the outdoors has to offer, right in their own backyards.”
“The idea behind this Super Bowl campaign is a continuation of what we’ve been doing for our brands over the last year—building relationships with new consumers who have entered the category,” said John Sass, vice president of advertising at ScottsMiracle-Gro. “We’re meeting them where they are, from TikTok to Instagram to the Super Bowl, with breakthrough and dynamic creative ideas that we’ve crafted with our partners at VaynerMedia.”
The Super Bowl commercial marks the launch of ScottsMiracle-Gro’s biggest marketing push with a fully integrated eight-week program leading up to the first day of spring. The campaign includes a multiplatform approach across channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, YouTube, Snapchat, and OTT, and will utilize a volume of content to engage consumers and drive further awareness for the brands.
