It seems every summer I see stories about folks getting fed up with dormant turf and hiring someone to paint their lawns green.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — When this summer’s drought turned her prized lawn brown, Terri LoPrimo fought back, but not with sprinklers: She had it painted green, making her suddenly lush-appearing yard the envy of her neighborhood.
The Staten Island, N.Y., resident and her husband, Ronnie, hired a local entrepreneur to spruce up their yard by spraying it with a deep-green organic dye. By Monday, the couple’s property was aglow with newly green blades of grass and no watering needed to sustain it.
“It looks just like a spring lawn, the way it looks after a rain. It’s really gorgeous,” said LoPrimo, a 62-year-old retiree.
I don’t begrudge them this – I mean, no one’s going to argue that a green stand of turf looks a lot better than a brown one. But, I’ve never actually seen a crew painting grass, or talked to a contractor that does this type of work.
Anyone out there getting calls for this, or have a spray (paint) rig on their trailer? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
