Painting Grass Green Vs. Artificial Grass

In hot climes, it’s becoming quite common to paint your grass green?  Last year, two thirds of the United States was severely affected by the worst drought in decades.  This has led to a huge increase in the popularity of lawn spraying.

Grass is Greener Lawn Painting operates out of Staten Island, New York.  The company has been featured on CBS, CBC News and the Weather Channel.  Their contracting business is booming, alongside this they’ve opened an online store selling equipment, allowing customers to paint their own lawns.  Trees and shrubs can be sprayed too.

The new craze is rather like something out of Alice in Wonderland – painting the roses red.  While it may seem strange, the solution is deemed an environmentally friendly way to reduce maintenance.  The paint is organic, non-toxic and actually adds beneficial chemicals to the grass.  It’s waterproof, dries in 2-3 hours and will last up to 3 months.

LawnLift are producers of America’s best-selling grass paint.  They promise the best colour match to natural grass and also offer paints for black and brown bark and mulch.  Paint contains a naturally occurring ammonia additive to enhance growth.  In the winter months it acts as a protective barrier for increased growth come spring.

In the UK, Telford based firm Amenity sell turf colorants to restore sports turf.  Will home owners start to catch on too?  Paint is a short term solution, unlike artificial grass which will last up to 20 years.  While you may save water, you’ve still got to mow and re-spray.  Some pet suppliers sell lawn paint for home use to touch-up yellow spots but they’re not meant for large scale application.
