TKO…what does it mean?
Total knock out.
TKO’s are most often referenced with the sport of boxing – when one opponent delivers a single blow so magnificent to the other, it knocks their rival in the ring out cold. Aside from boxing, we can safely assume that most of you have used the phrase “a total knock out” at least once in your lifetime. If you have, chances are that most folks around you knew exactly what you meant by it – that you encountered someone or something possessing such powerful attributes, real ‘wow factor’, that is caused you to figuratively (or literally) knocked off your feet.
We’ve been known to deliver TKO’s of our own too…just more of the gardening kind – not so much with jabs or fierce right hooks! Our version of a TKO definitely packs a punch – but with color and strength instead. Our TKO’s are a surefire way to garners you the heavy-weight title of ‘wow factor’ among envious neighbors and passers-by.
