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 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!
