- Fast-growing grass seeds
You can use grass seeds, cress seeds or similar sprouts and making this Grass House couldn’t be easier. Let’s look at what you are going to need to do to make your own!
How to make a Grass Seed Sponge House -:
Firstly you need to make sure that the sponges you are using are new. Make sure they are suitably clean by rinsing them in water. Now wring them out but leave some moisture in your sponge.
You do not want them to be fully dry. Now it’s time to grab your Permanent Marker. You will draw the shapes as outlined in the photos above. Cut out the shapes using scissors but be very careful as they are sharp! You are building your Grass House inside of the Plastic Container which acts like an incubator of sorts.
You want to use your craft knife to create the roof, walls and lawned areas that form your house. Once your Sponge House is complete you need to spray it down with a water bottle until it is nice and damp. Be careful not to soak it though. It still needs to absorb. Now you can sprinkle seeds over your Grass House and spray some more water. It’s now into the plastic container.
This will have a glass house type effect and promote growth. Make sure the lid is on and find a nice sunny place for it to grow. Be sure that it is in a well-lit area, a kitchen window is always a good place. You will start to see growth by way of sprouting very soon. As the grass grows, you can trim it. Be sure that you keep it well watered. This awesome idea is from Patterson Green Houses
