The Grass Is Always Greener During A Drought, Thanks To Joe Perazzo

(Courtesy Joe Perazzo)

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.

    Unless you are arrogantly compelled to keep up with the Jones’ where you live, why would you pay someone to paint your lawn?  As a matter of fact, spending money and resources to even water your lawn in the first place is a waste as well,  and if you’re wealthy and living on an estate where it would be a tragedy not to have a green lawn, who cares how much water you use?  Lawns that aren’t watered will, of course, turn brown and crispy during dry, sunny periods…but who cares?  You won’t have to mow your lawn if it’s brown and crispy.
