Q: I am installing a permeable driveway (Unilock Turfstone) at my house in Portland. I read your article on best types of grass mixes in Oregon. But what about driveway grass? Ideally I would like a grass with low maintenance, less mowing, and for daily parking with car traffic. The driveway is in southeast corner of house and gets full sun, except when parked on in evenings.

Skip the soil and try growing vegetables in an aquaponics system that turns fish waste into fertilizer for your plants.
Tomatoes are the most commonly produced greenhouse vegetable crop. Although greenhouse promoters claim each plant can produce 30 or more pounds of marketable fruit per year, that level of production is only possible with very high inputs in quality facilities and optimal cultural practices. In western Oregon, it's more realistic to harvest 20–25 pounds per plant space each year.
