Sellers Get High On Grass!

Sellers get high on grass. Lawn grass that is. And by high, I mean excited.

There's a common expression, "The grass is greenest where you water it." Well, not anymore my friends. Now the grass might be greenest where you paint or dye it!                                                         Sellers Get High On Grass

Whether you are facing water restrictions, experiencing a lack of rain or have brown spots due to pet urine, grass paint and dye have become viable solutions to beautifying your lawn.

Professionals have used grass paint and dye to make golf courses and country clubs look green and lush for years. You've also seen colored versions in use on sports fields. A product for consumers has recently been made available for residential applications. 

Why would a homeowner want to paint/dye their lawn?

  • Provides a natural green look all year long at a reasonable cost.
  • Prevents costly fines for watering your lawn in areas where rationing is enforced.
  • Can save on water utility bill costs, the costs of seeding or fertilizing.
  • Can often be applied to all types of grass and is considered permanent, lasting for several months.
  • Time savings. No winter mowing; reclaim your weekends. 
  • When applied correctly, the paint/dye dries quickly, wont wash off, and wont stain clothing or pets.

 Are there any other considerations?

  • Most suppliers recommend thoroughly mowing and raking the lawn before spraying.
  • Don't spray when it's windy.
  • Use a paint shield to separate the lawn and any sidewalk or patio.
  • Use only on days when no rain or snow has recently occurred or predicted and no dew is present; the grass must be completely dry.

Mike- I have never seen anything like this before. How long does it typically last once you've sprayed it on?

I think this is just lazy. People need to learn that if they want their lawns to look nice they need to put a little work into it. Spray painting the lawn is not going to fix the underlying problem that is there. Yes its a lot of work and sometimes hard work but in the end its worth it.

Mike, I have seen this is drought conditions.  It would be a good solution in times like that!

Margie - I've been told it can last several months depending on traffic and mowing frequency.

Drick - Thanks for sharing your thoughts. In some areas of the country water rationing prevents a healthy looking lawn. It's an option and the paint/dye does not hinder efforts to revamp a lawn that is in need of care (fertilizing, etc.).

Tony - I agree. It can also be implemented while a lawn is undergoing treatment in order to revitalize it.

Mike, interesting concept - never thought this is possible.

I think some of my listings will need this trick...painting...or dyeing or spraying on grass...hmmmmm.
