Since I could say, "The grass is thick [or thin] in the garden," and keep the same meaning, I would use sentences 1 and 3.

Scroll down a bit and read all about the "multiple personalities" verbs!!
====================================
Thank you for your help.

1. The grass grows thick in the garden.
2. The grass becomes thick in the
garden.
(Does #1 mean #2? or is 'thick' used as an adverb?)

  • English -

    In both sentences, "thick" is a predicate adjective describing "grass."
