Great idea: Make your driveway glow like a starry night #The Great Offbeat Outdoors#driveway#garage October 3 | Ariel Meadow Stallings offbeatbride Photo courtesy of ePundit.com Driveway gravel + glow in the dark stones = your driveway looking like some sort of magical mystery tour destination. You can get the glowing rocks on Amazon for $11, but of course it would take a buttload of $11 packages to make a driveway glow this much… Join our community!

Me gusta so hardcore. Could it be easier to just make perhaps a line down either side for cheapsies like me? That could be fun. 5 agree Reply Oh my gourd! That looks SO COOL!! And aside from cool, it's also practical. If you don't have outside flood lights, this helps you see your driveway better for, like, when you forget something outside in your car and decide to go get it at 11pm and need to see where you're going…and your flashlight batteries died. Or, it's great for when guests come over to your house, and try to leave after dark but aren't familiar enough with your yard to know where they can turn around. Or when people need to FIND your house! It's the one with the glowing driveway! Also, intruders! Hard to sneak up the driveway when you can see their silhouette against the glow! Ok, or it just looks cool. 11 agree Reply This is pretty awesome! Might be kinda neat to put it around a garden area too (in the backyard). 8 agree Reply TOTALLY worth a buttload of $11 packages though…. 8 agree Reply http://www.amazon.com/Glow-Dark-Pebble-Pack-100/dp/B0018S2NE4/ref=pd_bxgy_lg_text_z More stones, less money! 8 agree Reply Glowing rocks! Okay, you've now provided my excuse for having not gotten around to building my bathroom terrarium yet. I did not know about glowing rocks. Now I do: decor plus night light, all in one. 7 agree Reply what about using glow in the dark spray paint over regular gravel and then spraying a sealant? could get much more coverage that way, for a lot less money! 26 agree Reply I was thinking the same thing. Even using it to paint bricks or pavers might look neat. 4 agree Reply Put some rocks in a big box and spray paint them with this! Will take a few coats to REALLY glow. http://www.amazon.com/Krylon-K03150-Aerosol-6-Ounce-Glow-In-The-Dark/dp/B000GLG7HS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1349279772&sr=8-1&keywords=glow+in+the+dark+spray+paint 1 agrees Reply It almost makes me wish I had a gravel driveway. 1 agrees Reply You can order them in bulk here: http://www.coregravel.co.uk/products/coreglow-glow-pebbles I don't know about shipping from the UK, but still! And there are more colours! 4 agree Reply (My friend and I saw this image a couple weeks ago and immediately started looking for the origin, and that's as close as we came. I covet you, glowing driveway!) Reply I don't think these would glow for very long after sunset, BUT then you could go out with a flashlight and draw with the light on the stones. Turn out your light and see your picture! 3 agree Reply Wouldn't want to do that anywhere that gets snow. First time you shovel the driveway, the gravel would end up on the lawn. 3 agree Reply As cool as this looks, I can't imagine this being very earth friendly if you didn't pick up every single one when you moved. That might be difficult. However, I think there could be amazing in a shallow fountain. Easier clean up too! 3 agree Reply We have these inlaid in our concrete counters! They're so bloody cool. It was the one thing my 40 yr old fiancé was insistent on: "We gotta get the glow rocks!" Well worth it. 3 agree Reply Alternative: Gluing glow in the dark pony beads to paver bricks. I need a cheaper non littering snow friendly option. 1 agrees Reply I like the look but I would seriously consider a different method. Glow in the dark paints and powders, including rocks don't last forever so it won't be beautiful for too long. Might I recommend searching for a planetarium projector and hiding it in a tree or other tall object? I love the look but hoping to come up with something more frugal….OR perhaps use weak magnets and paint them with the glow in the dark acrylic paint. Leave the magnets loose so that when they lose their glow you can use a stronger magnet to easily collect them and repaint them then disperse. This picture is so gorgeous, though!
