Ask just about any do-it-yourself- weekend warrior home-owner what their biggest challenge is in the summer and the answer may be lawn care — keeping the grass cut, lush and green.

That’s a particular challenge these days across America: with two thirds of the nation hit by drought from coast to coast, the color of many lawns have gone from deep green to parched brown and yellow.

But Joe Perazzo has a fix. “The solution is lawn painting. we give you instant results. By spraying it from brown to green,” his company promises.

Grass is Greener Lawn Painting will paint your lawn and these days he’s busier than ever doing just that.
