Each year questions are raised about how to keep grass green during the winter months-especially Bermuda, Zoysia, and Centipede. Actually, this can be rather easy thing to do. You have two choices paint the grass green or over seed it with temporary cool-season grass like Annual Rye Grass. Please note that Annual Rye Grass seed may contain some perennial rye that may persist in the lawn long after the winter months to give the lawn a raged look. Annual Rye Grass is supposed to die off as the summer heat approaches.
Coloring compounds for grasses are not new. Several have been used for a number of years. One of the earliest compounds was Malachite Green a common dye. Cost has always been a major draw back. Estimated cost for dyes could be as low as $30.00 Per acre to over $500.00. The second cost factor is how green is your desired look.
I recently was in a subdivision where several lawns had been sprayed by the largest lawn care company in the USA. No it was a dyed lawn, it was a dye that they are now using with weed control applications to see where they have sprayed.
Here is one chemical supply for commercial applicators: Green Lawinger is the professional’s way to keep the natural appearance of turf which
is dormant, damaged or discolored. It is an environmentally friendly permanent green pigment. The liquid formula is easily applied with most types of sprayers. Keep turf looking fresh for 10-14 weeks or until you mow it away. By adjusting the mix water ratio you can control the color shade for your turf. One gallon covers 4,000 to 12,000 square feet depending on the type of grass and color of turf desired. It can also be used to color a divot and give it a natural green appearance.
