Why Are So Many Californians Spray Painting Their Lawns?
California’s current historic drought has had a signifiant negative impact on the local environment and economy. But most personally of all for many California property owners, the drought has killed their lawns.
Lawns need a lot of water to stay healthy particularly in hot weather. To give you an idea, a standard 20 foot by 20 foot square lawn requires 124 gallons of water every week for the entire summer. In areas that see very little rainfall like California, this amount of water usage is simply unsustainable. In fact, California recently passed a bill that limits outdoor watering to only two days a week before 10 AM or after 6 PM. And if you decide the rules don’t apply to you, well, good luck. People who violate these water restrictions, can be fined upwards of $10,000 for every violation.
This along with the other hardships that come with maintaining a healthy lawn, has made many California property owners decide that it’s just not worth it to keep a green lawn anymore. As a result, there are a lot of brown lawns everywhere you look in California, and many people are even second guessing the concept of a green lawn altogether with slogans like “brown is the new green”.
Which is totally commendable, but if we’re being 100% honest, brown is not the new green. In fact, brown lawns are typically seen as a blow to the neighborhood’s aesthetics and having a brown lawn could diminish your perceived social status amongst your peers. Green grass is more than just a nice landscaping feature; it’s a symbol of the American dream. The two story house, the white picket fence, the car in the garage, and of course a luscious, green, and perfectly manicured lawn.
So here’s the dilemma we face in California: we love our green lawns, but we can’t actually water our lawns enough to keep them green.
So what to do?
You could replace your grass with artificial turf for about $8,000 on average. The issues with this is that it’s expensive, it generally looks fake, and it gets super hot when the weather gets hot. Or you could go with a much more affordable and real looking solution called lawn painting for only about $600 on average.
That’s right, if you haven’t heard about it before, lawn painting is the latest trend among California property owners. And while it may sound a little crazy at first, the truth is that it isn’t anything new. In fact, golf courses paint their grass green all the time.
And it totally makes sense why so many California property owners are getting their grass painted too…
- The grass paint is vegetable oil based and 100% non-toxic
- The process turns the grass green instantly
- It requires no maintenance and therefore saves lots of time and money that would have otherwise been spent on watering and maintaining the grass
- It’s environmentally friendly
- A fraction of the price of the alternatives
- It lasts 3-6 months
- It makes your property easer to sell
- And most importantly, it looks nearly indistinguishable from a real green grass
The truth is that with lawn painting there’s no need to give up on the American dream of having a green lawn even in a historic drought.
