Do you wish you could have a vibrant lawn year round? There’s a hassle-free way to green up the grass, and it’s something you’d never expect: paint. Golf course and football field groundskeepers have been painting fairways and end zones for years, giving players and spectators that fresh, healthy-looking grass they expect. It’s a tempting alternative to overseeding for contractors, homeowners, and landscape management companies.
But really, painted turfgrass?
Benefits of Painted Bermuda
Consider a scenario: the oppressive Georgia sun has created a drought, and your bermudagrass is slowly turning brown. State officials are placing water restrictions, and watering the lawn is always the first thing to go. How can you keep the grass looking great?
Grass paint is a quick, ecologically-friendly solution for home and business lawns. It’s made from non-toxic ingredients that’s safe for kids, pets, and vegetation. The paint clings to exposed grass blades, turning it a lovely, natural green. It won’t wash away, and it doesn’t require the water and upkeep necessary after overseeding the lawn. As the grass begins to green up, the paint will be harmlessly snipped away with each mow. Depending on the stage of dormancy of your lawn, painted bermuda lasts for 2 to 3 months before natural grass has fully replaced the painted blades. Painting the lawn is a simple, cost-effective, and risk-free solution for dormant and damaged grasses. People who may benefit from painted bermuda include:
- Golf course groundskeepers
- Contractors selling homes
- Businesses with well-kept grounds
- Owners of fairgrounds or other properties that receive excessive foot traffic
- Groundskeepers for governmental buildings
