Our Green Driveway is growing!
by Franke James
Were you skeptical about our grass growing from seed? We were! But after only thirteen days, the growth of our Eco-Lawn is excellent — even from a distance. I’ve never considered myself a gardener — and I have never grown grass from seed — so this is pretty exciting. It definitely beats sod — which the raccoons were always turning over much to our annoyance. Nice to know that good seeds + water + sunshine = healthy green grass (drought-tolerant of course)!
We appreciate the many friends, family and neighbors who have been dropping by to congratulate us on the transformation. I think I’m going to love having a green driveway! It beats interlock hands down for beauty and reducing stormwater runoff.
Read the step-by-step story of how we built our Green Driveway:
WOW!! This makes me so happy to be part of this exciting adventure – if I was growing a green driveway I’d be excited about the seeds sprouting too!!

Wow–You have made my day! My home was destroyed by fire in Dec. 07 & am in the process of rebuilding only to find out that my new home won’t allow the correct %age of grass for my lakefront lot. Am meeting with the LakeShoreZoning guru on Thursday to see if he will allow this solution! Wish me luck!
Glad that the eco-lawn grass info is helpful to you. Good luck!
