We try to use eco-friendly management for our lawn but it is challenging since we are starting off with lots of shady spots, bare batches, and weeds. We recently planted a bunch of lawn seed and then lost the new grass to a drought. That is why I was so excited to find Eco-Lawn™ grass seed, a low maintenance grass seed at Eartheasy.com. This family-owned, carbon neutral company offers eco-friendly products and promotes solutions for sustainable living. They provided the low maintenance grass seed in the hopes that I would share my hones opinions. I received no monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.

Eco-Lawn™ does not require fertilizing and can be mown like a regular lawn or left un-mown for a free-flowing carpet effect. I am certainly impressed that Eco-Lawn grass seed has a lot of eco friendly benefits for my lawn including water conservation, no need for chemical fertilizers, and saves time and money with less mowing.
Eco Lawn Low Maintenance Grass Seed Review:
Having read that late summer/early fall is the best time to plant grass seeds (cool evening temperatures, early morning dews and autumn rains encourage germination and growth), I gave it a go with my new Eco Lawn grass seed. I don’t really water my lawn so I watched the weather forecast and when I saw some rain coming for a few days, my daughter and I went out and sprinkled the seeds around as evenly as we could with a focus on the bare spots. It was fun! She loves helping with that sort of thing and she eagerly waits for the growth. (There are a lot of detailed instructions and really great tips for best growth results on the Earth Easy website if you want to know the best results way to do it but I am a real person with real imperfections so my way did not quite match entirely.) It has been about a week and two days since we planted and I am already seeing some fabulous new growth (even though I am naughty and don’t water daily as suggested)! Even in my mossy spots under my big trees, I have some great new emerging lawn. I am so excited to have found eco-friendly grass seeds that will make my lawn more eco- friendly by requiring less water, fertilizer and mowing!
