Winter landscaping is nothing but snow removal and cleaning – all the plants in your garden either go dormant or die. You are left with nothing but a shadow of what your landscape was in the warmer months. It’s poetic and tragic at the same time.

Like other landscape features in your backyard, your grass too shrivels up, becomes patchy, and goes brown. Browning is a sign that your lawn is dead. There are no ifs and buts. And a dead garden badly affects the curb appeal of your property.
Some kinds of turf grass can last in cooler climates, but if you live in an area where the winters are extreme, even those will not last. You can always opt for synthetic grass, but since you will be replanting or laying sod grass in your lawn come spring, fake grass is not a wise investment. However, there is one other alternative that you can consider – painting your grass.
Why color your grass?
Winter is the best time of the year to paint your grass. And although this might be an avant-garde approach to restoring your garden, there are certain benefits associated with it.
Any approach is better than having a dead-looking garden, but painting is a viable solution because it quickly and with little effort brings back life to your landscape and boosts curb appeal. While a refreshing green color can be just what you need to bring energy to a dull and dreary winter, there are multiple color options you can choose from.
Painting your garden costs much less than some other options might if you want to revamp your winter landscape. Grass paint is inexpensive, and since it doesn’t require a lot of time, effort, or manpower to apply, the labor cost is also low. Whereas getting artificial grass installed or planting year-round perennials will costs you a lot more.
Grass paint lasts for a short period of time, which means that once winter is over, you can quickly move back to your old landscape with a little planting and maintenance work. However, if you opt for another solution like redesigning the landscape and adding year-round perennials and hardscapes, it will look stunning but will also be an extremely costly, challenging, and hectic project. Also, hardscaping elements are more permanent, so they will alter the look of your property for a long time unless you decide to splurge more on redesigning your garden in the near future.
If you decide to opt for coloring your grass green for the winter, it is best to let professionals handle this project. Only an expert will know how to dye your grass to get the best results – what conditions are ideal for painting, what tools are required, how long it will take, what type of paint to use, etc. If you are worried about the grass paint hurting poisoning your garden and the environment, then do not stress because more eco-friendly options are available in the market.
