Glow-in-the-dark driveway

How beautiful is this driveway? It's actually doable: It's made of glowstones mixed with gravel. Imagine driving home after a long day at work--awesome.

Love this! On another note, i have a topic of conversation that might be interesting for your motherhood mondays. discipline and grandparents....how do you draw boundaries when your parents see your child often and are very indulgent with him/her?

Jaime said...

This is crazy/ amazing! I would love driving home tothat :-)

Cool, but upon a check of the price of "glowstones," I see that this would turn a simple gravel driveway (usually one of the cheapest types of driveway) into one of the more expensive driveways. In many areas, it's also very impractical, and that impracticality sends the price skyrocketing so that it's not just "one of the more expensive" driveways, but possibly THE most expensive driveway. If you live in a snowy area and have your driveway plowed, your gravel and the glowstones mixed in is going to work its way off the driveways and into your grass, other landscaping, etc.. Gravel driveways in such areas have to be replenished frequently.

Lindsey said...

Oh my goodness this is gorgeous! It would be so magical driving up to this every night!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

It's too pretty to drive on it. Guess I'd just have to stay home and never go anywhere. :-))

Geetika said...

Glowstones in sky blue would go great with golden solar powered lights lining the edge of a driveway. It would be great for the summertime!

Lindsey McLean said...

I misread the title and thought it said GIVEAWAY. How sad! I would have loved a glowing driveway of my own. Never mind that I live in an apartment! ;)

Nicole said...

Whoa. Mind blown! I wonder if I could cover my tiny balcony in those awesome glowstones...? :)

sip-n-wear said...

Wow that would be magical...

GirlieBlogger@Beauty Fashion Blog Seattle said...

Wow. Super cool concept. I think they would be especially good in the country side, where it's super dark at night.

LC Taylor said...

I love that! So magical!

Sarah Carlson said...

pretty! It would be fun to mix them into a countertop or under glass for a bedside table in a kid's room!

M.B. Captured said...

That is incredible, how great and magical would that be, except you would want to drive without your lights on!

Erica said...

If you were giving directions, all you'd have to say is "Yeah, just turn into the glowing driveway". Can't miss that one :)

Jamie said...

Amazing!

We will ( eventually) be moving back to the US .. New York State to be exact. I might have to have a glow in the dark driveway :)

MandaJ said...

I love it as well. I'm going to have to agree with some of the others and say it reminds me of outerspace. So awesome.

Isn't it funny how to something so simple we hadn't thought of before?

love this! definitely newest thing on the must do list for our little bungalow (; thanks for sharing! xo, t.

Sarah said...

very cool. Did you see the stepping stones on the company's site? I think I like those even better. A bit more subtle (probably much less expensive), but still really cool.
Or, putting some under glass in a bathroom counter... No more nightlight!

How perfect!

I think the novelty would wear off fairly quickly,and imagine having a light you could never turn off... would make it extremely unfriendly to any wild animal in the vicinity too!

Very pretty :) I'm not sure i would do this for a driveway, but it would be fun to add this to walkways for a summer party in the evening.

If I am reading correctly, from what I understand there is asbestos in ambient which is in this product.

Another option is to have the stones seeded (embedded) into a concrete driveway. That way, it's longer lasting, making it more affordable. Or, you can just do an edging of your driveway with the stones, either as gravel or as a permanent installation. :)

Okay, I really REALLY love this. I have never seen anything like this before. Funny coincidence, we are getting a new driveway right now. I think we will tell out driveway sealer in Minneapolis MN that this is what we want instead! Thanks for the fun post!

Joshua said...

Really neat driveway. Bet it must be easy to find your house at night. Your house is the one with the glowing driveway! LOL

This is spectacular! We just got new driveway pavers, so it looks like we can't use the stones in our driveway, but I'd love to put some in my flower beds!
