Helping your lawns Winter colour can be a difficult task. Some lawn varieties naturally lose colour in the cooler months. This week’s turf tip is a great lawn tip to keep your lawn green year-round. This is especially helpful if you have a special event or you are selling your home during this Winter season.
Why does Winter lawn colour happen?
With the sun lower in the sky Winter days will be shorter. Giving your lawn less sunlight and energy. This will slow the growth rate and the amount of chlorophyll being produced. Chlorophyll is where the green pigment comes from so your lawn will lose some colour. Though when the days get longer the process will ramp up and the colour will return.
If your area is affected by frosts this can also set the process back and affect the colour of your lawn.
The Winter lawn colour solution
While some homeowners are happy to wait till spring and watch their lawn come back to life, if you have a special event or are selling your home you will need a quick fix.
Thankfully we have a Winter lawn colour solution that can green up your lawn instantly. This will allow your home to look its best no matter what your occasion. This solution is ColourGuard Plus, an easy to apply natural plant-based pigment. The best part is its 100% safe for the environment, people and pets as its 100% organic!
How it works
Coming in a 2 litre ready to use bottle you simply attach the bottle to your hose and spray the ColourGuard Plus evenly on your lawn. If you accidentally spray hard surfaces such as your driveway you can simply hose it off with water. Once applied ColourGuard will dry in 2 hours of full sunlight.
ColourGuard Plus is not a lawn paint. It is a permanent pigment and once dry won’t wash off with rain or water. It is also UV fade resistant and won’t bleed, run or stain once it has been absorbed by your grass. The colour will only disappear as your blade grows and you cut your lawn. Also with the slower growth rate of Winter this means your lawn will keep its new colour even longer.
