Coloring Your Lawn

When temperatures drop, many Florida lawns turn from green to brown. But you can easily change the color of your lawn back to green with turf colorants.

Turf colorants are paints and dyes that have traditionally been used on golf courses and professional athletic fields.

Some cities now have companies that will apply them to home lawns. Customers enjoy a green lawn all winter without the mowing or watering that would be required with an overseeded lawn.

Keep in mind that you don't want to try this with paint from the hardware store. Turf colorants are specially formulated to be safe for the grass and the environment.
