Our Green Driveway is growing!

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.
