Residents Painting Their Grass Green

Some areas of the country are under tighter water restrictions this summer.

And with that comes brown grass and dried-up lawns.

But imagine having a green lawn that hardly ever needs water.

Believe it or not, it's possible.

Anayeli Ruiz explains how.

"You can't even tell that its painted. The grass itself it looks naturally just like grass."

Michael Guitierrez has been painting grass since last year.

But this year it seems like more lawns need the green.

This is how painting your yard works: they mow your lawn and spray it down evenly with paint.

But its not just any paint, it's a special one made for grass.

"It's biodegradable, it's safe around pets, children and it wont rinse away if it rains, and it's environmentally friendly."

And by painting the grass, you can conserve water.

"You don't have to water as much and your grass will still be green; we do the greening part; all you have to do is just water it so the roots will have a little bit of water and just keep it alive."

In other dry areas across the u-s, this service is very popular.

"In other cities where they have a lot of water restrictions they do recommend that you paint the grass."

Homeowners and businesses are pretty happy with this new way of keeping it green.

"I really like it. I've never seen my grass this green until the first day we got it. But ever since then it's gone dry and now it's green."

"I've had it done also at a couple of the other of my houses as well it's just really great, it makes it look like the picture's been edited with the green grass."
