I was thinking…why don’t they make spray paint for the lawn so that I can paint the bare spots in the spring until they fill in?
Well, it turns out they do make grass paint; the problem is that I can’t find any in Canada. If it exists here, I don’t know where.
So my next thought was, why not make it myself? It can’t be too difficult…right. Well, yes and no. I found a recipe for grass paint, but I’m afraid it didn’t turn out quite as nicely as I had hoped. I really wanted something that worked like that spray-on hair product that you could buy a few years ago – except waterproof…and green. Well, it looks slightly better than nothing, and perhaps with some rain those bare spots will fill in a little more rapidly than they would on their own. I’ll keep you posted.
Here’s the recipe:
2 lbs lawn fertilizer
4 lbs epsom salts
1/4 cup green food coloring
