    This is awful. I am sure spray painting the lawns would not be approved under Surfrider's "Ocean friendly" gardens/ lawns program. It does occasionally rain here in SoCal and spray painting the lawn would just add toxins to our waterways. Xeriscaping -now that is an act of patriotism.

      Good news - the article doesn't actually refer to the literal spray-painting of dead lawns but lawn painting services that use non-toxic colors like LawnLift, a naturally derived, biodegradable pigmented dye.

      Agree with you on xeriscaping though - it's nicer to look at, saves water and money and is infinitely better for birds, bugs and wildlife than a square of lawn grass.
