Super-Sod rolled out TifTuf, their most drought-tolerant Bermudagrass, as a sponsor of Woodside’s Southern Living Inspired Home Tour in Aiken, South Carolina. Woodside Community in Aiken, South Carolina, boasts Southern charm and tradition, but their most recent claim to fame is their hand-picked status as a Southern Living Inspired Community. To celebrate this status, Woodside is presenting a tour of homes with two newly built Southern Living Inspired Homes. Both homes will feature TifTuf Bermudagrass lawns. Developed at the University of Georgia and tested since 1991, TifTuf Bermudagrass uses 38 percent less water than standard Tifway Bermuda. National Turfgrass Evaluation Program research at universities across the U.S. indicates that TifTuf maintains its green color later into the fall months and greens up earlier in the spring than other Bermudagrasses. “We decided to use TifTuf because of its water conservation,” said Wesley Elijah, President of Community Operations for Woodside Development. “TifTuf’s eco-friendly qualities help us remain good stewards to the environment.” However, TifTuf isn’t just gracing the lawns of the new homes. Woodside is in the process of converting all residential and commercial lawns in the community to TifTuf Bermudagrass. “We chose Super-Sod for this project because they have a reputation for quality products and vetting their certified turfgrasses,” Elijah said. “Working with Super-Sod for this conversion is a great partnership for the community.” The homes titled “The Polo at Summer Hill” and “The Savannah at the Village at Woodside” will be open for tours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning on Friday, April 21, and concluding Memorial Day, May 29. Visitors will tour both homes and have the opportunity to learn about Woodside communities and culture, the construction of the houses and products used both inside and outside. Sponsors and contributors to the tours will also host display spaces within the Village Center, where visitors can pick up their tickets. Super-Sod will exhibit a booth with information about TifTuf, and a sod expert will be present each weekend to answer any questions about the drought-tolerant Bermudagrass. Tickets to the Southern Living Inspired Home Tour are $10 and available for purchase on-site or online at WoodsideCommunities.com. Tour hours are Fridays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Special Memorial Day hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All ticket proceeds will benefit the following charities: Operation FinallyHOME, Saratoga WarHorse and The ALS Association. The Village Center — headquarters for the tour — is located at 230 Village Green Blvd., Aiken, South Carolina. More information on the tour and Woodside communities can be found at WoodsideCommunities.com. Super-Sod, a subsidiary of Patten Seed Company, is a family-run business that employs experts in turf and horticulture throughout the Southeast. Super-Sod continuously develops new garden products; fosters gardening and landscaping; and seeks improvement in farming practices, technology, environmental stewardship and employee knowledge.

Years ago I used to be quite critical of the LEED certification system, particularly about the laughably inappropriate things that got certification, from parking garages to space ports to drive through restaurants. But LEED kept getting better, and then the lumber and the plastics industries started going after them, and I realized that for all their problems, they have done so much to take green building into the mainstream, to change the whole industry. I became a big defender, and I must admit that they were very nice to me, giving me a big leadership award in 2014 for being so vocal. And then I see this: the Mirabella at Village Green subdivision being built in Bradenton, Florida. According to Scott Gibson of Green Building Advisor, it is going for LEED Platinum in the LEED for homes program. That's the highest level you can get and I just have to ask, really? Let's start with the site: there are points to be had for using an existing property rather than a greenfield site. As Matt Johnson reports in the Bradenton Herald: However this is not exactly new urbanism in action; the site has a Walkscore of 27. The site was a very suburban golf course community, probably sold to the people in the streets around it as forever green. It's not exactly a model of urbanity and Walkscore doesn't get LEED points, but It should count for something. The design is what Scott Gibson says is a "garage forward" design. That is the polite term for what are known as snout houses, defined in Dolores Hayden's book "A field guide to sprawl" as "house with a protruding garage that takes up most of the street frontage, squeezing out front yards and making it hard to find the front door." They are banned in many communities because of the unfriendly streetscape they create, nothing but a wall of garages. In this design you can't even see the front door; it is hidden behind so that there is a straight run from the garage into the house. Here you are in sunny Florida where kids should be playing in the streets and people should be talking to their neighbors and you get a blank wall of garages, with the only overview being a window from the den. It's ugly, it's anti-urban and It should count for something. Then there is the house itself. The builder calls them "paired villas"- I guess semi-detached doesn't play well. However it's a plus; you get higher density and a shared wall reduces heat gain and loss. Like any Florida house today it is designed for air conditioning, and being a semi limits the window placement. And I often complain that houses have too many, too large windows. Not a worry about solar gain here; windows face the sideyards or the covered front porch. It might have been designed for a bit of resilience with big windows front and back to maximize cross ventilation, but nobody opens their windows in Florida. Cross-ventilation and resilience aren't required for LEED for homes, but It should count for something. But the biggest shocker for me is that these houses do not even meet code for insulation in the walls. Scott writes: Insulation in Mirabella houses may seem a little skimpy to northern readers. Bradenton is in Climate Zone 2, where the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code's prescriptive approach requires R-38 of insulation in the ceiling and R-6 in mass walls — values that Mirabella homes don't reach. [they have R20 or 30 in ceilings, R4 in the walls] But as Dennis Stroer of Cals-Plus, a Venice, Florida, company that is handling some of the LEED certification work on the project, explains, the project is using a performance-based alternative.... In following a performance-based path to compliance, builders use computer modeling software to show energy costs won't be any higher than they would be in a house meeting prescriptive requirements of the code. High-efficiency mechanical equipment, such as AC units, can compensate for lower levels of insulation. It is true, as the LEED consultant notes, that in this climate there isn't that much temperature differential between inside and out (I checked and last July and August it was a pretty consistent 91°F) and humidity is a bigger factor than temperature. So using gizmos, like SEER 15 air conditioners (with an optional SEER 18 upgrade) lets you get away with using R-4 walls and barely half the required insulation in the ceiling. This may be fine for the local building inspector, although I don't think gizmos should replace insulation, but for LEED? It should count for something. There are obviously good things going on here. The houses are not grossly huge at about 1500 square feet. They will, according to the builder, quoted in the Herald, Perhaps. It is a big improvement over much of the stuff built in Florida. We have to start somewhere. As the LEED consultant tells Scott, "The good part is we know we’re doing the right thing. In five years, everyone will be doing it. Right now, we’re alone." I should remember my Voltaire, that "The perfect is the enemy of the good". But is this good enough for LEED certification, let alone Platinum? Is this subdivision, with its low walkscore, horrible streetscape, auto-centric snout house design, inadequate insulation, good enough? I don't think so. These are all important and It should count for something.

From water-powered USB chargers to a post-disaster housing marketplace, four new socially-conscious startups just graduated from Fledge’s third class ever. Fledge, an incubator program led by Michael “Luni” Libes, held its third-ever Demo Day at the HUB Seattle Thursday night, as four groups demoed the work they’ve been doing for the past few months. Fledge is a TechStars-like accelerator, but with a focus on “conscious companies.” To be part of Fledge’s program, each company must demonstrate a socially-conscious mission and model. Here is the latest crop of “fledglings,” with descriptions provided to us from Fledge: Self Spark – Informing, teaching and measuring lifestyle change, using Open Science techniques.  Spark Weekend, coming January 4-5, is a mix of Startup Weekend and TED, helping people learn about tools that can improve one’s life, with a day of hands-on assistance, to ensure those changes stick. Hydrobee – A portable, turbine-powered, battery, harvesting energy from nature to power the growing number of USB powered devices.  Hydrobee is initially targeting the American camping market, but aiming to provide power to the 100+ million people worldwide who live off-grid, yet own cellphones and use LED lights. Village Green – Everyone has needs, especially entrepreneurs.  Village Green is an online “needs exchange” where needs can be easily posted, searched, followed, and fulfilled.  Based on two years’ experience matching needs in-person via dozens of Green Breakfast Club events in New York City and around the world. Close to Home –  An online marketplace for post-disaster homes, finally fixing the problem of how to rebuild communities after natural disasters like we’ve seen in Hurricane Sandy, in the floods of Boulder, Colorado, and just this week with the tornados just outside Chicago. And you can watch the pitches from Demo Day here:
