Tips for self-lawn painting:
- Lawns must still be watered deeply at least once a week to keep the roots healthy and alive. The lawn paint will not fade if you water your grass.
- Best grass to catch the lawn paint is thick, dormant grass because it has long roots and will remain alive longer without any water.
- When painting the grass make sure to wear protective equipment while spraying because paint will stain skin and all clothing worn if sprayed incorrectly.
