Good Day World!
There’s a new slogan; “Brown is the new green in California.”
In other words, it’s cool to stop watering your lawn and let it turn brown. But a lot of folks can’t hang with that “dead look.”
The answer to their concern is a proliferation of “drought free” yards. They range from using rocks of various sizes surrounding drought-resistant plants, to artificial turf.
Oh yeah. And spray painting brown lawns green.
The paint is non toxic (according to the manufacturers) and grows out with the grass, similar to temporarily highlighting one’s hair. Furthermore, this practice is already quite common in golf courses, ballparks, and other athletic venues.
I have to ask…why stop at just one color?
Imagine designer lawns that match with the colors of your house?
The possibilities are endless. You could change colors every three months (that’s how long the paint is supposed to last before needing touched up).
Red-white-and blue lawns would undoubtedly be popular during patriotic holidays (4th of July, Veteran’s Day, and Memorial Day).
Go retro at Christmas with a green lawn. Maybe add touches of red reminiscent of Santa’s outfit for that extra festive look.
Valentine Day offers romantics a chance to paint their lawns pink with purple letters spelling out their names.
Yeah…you have to have a green lawn for St. Patrick’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a dash of gold for good luck.
Perhaps the best chance for people to really get crazy with their designer lawns is Halloween. Black and orange lawns will be di rigueur. Blood-red lawns will also blossom in neighborhoods celebrating All Hallows Eve.
Personally, I like the color blue. What about you?
Time for me to walk on down the road…
