Forget the Water, Dye the Lawn Green With Spray Paint

By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine

Nothing kills curb appeal like brown grass spots or an uncared for lawn. Buyers love vibrant green lawns, but when you’re dealing with abandoned foreclosures, homes in drought areas, or home owners who haven’t committed to the upkeep, getting that green lawn seems impossible.

Not anymore -- and you don’t even have to use water either. A new home trend is to grab some spray paint and dye the entire lawn green, ABC News reports.

Some staging and real estate professionals have been embracing green spray paint in covering up brown grass patches for years. But now companies are popping up that will do it for you -- and paint the entire lawn, not just a spot here and there.

Lawn Smart USA, based in Tom Rivers, N.J., will dye the lawn green by spraying an environmentally pet and child safe paint onto the lawn that will last up to 3 months.

Some home owners and real estate professionals are being lured to not only the curb appeal but the water savings too.
