Product Testimonial on Drivable Grass®

Printable Version

“Installing Drivable Grass® for a project at the East Mesa Detention Center in Otay Mesa was a pretty clean and smooth operation. Once we worked out scheduling and access issues at the site, our biggest challenge was laying sod over the Drivable Grass®. West Coast Sod suggested one with a shallow root zone and that installation also went much smoother than anticipated. We actually completed the project ahead of schedule, which is always a bonus. Drivable Grass® was ideal for this project because of its ease of installation, clean look, strength and quality. I’m sure it will hold up for a good long while despite the heavy amount of vehicle and foot traffic found in a prison environment.”
