Did you ever think people would resort to painting their lawn green?! Surprisingly, people are! According to “Spraying to Make Yards Green… But with Paint, Not Water” by Marc Lacey, residents who have the home owners association breathing down their necks are being forced to come up with ways to keep their lawn perfectly green. In order to meet these expectations less expensively some residents have chosen to paint their brown lawns, green. Then they just touch it up every now and again. I think it’s ridiculous that it’s less expensive and easier to make your lawn look nicer by taking artificial measures. Residents also use fake grass where they just roll it out. I think the home owners association should support naturally grown grass instead of thinking about aesthetics all the time. I can’t imagine what kind of chemicals the environment is absorbing from this green paint!
