"An Indiana man said his lawn has stayed lush and green during the current dry weather due to his secret weapon: paint.
Timothy Birdwell of Indianapolis, an employee of Imperial Painting, said he and a friend came up with the idea to paint the grass when they were confronted with dry weather and a watering ban."
Timothy is killing two birds with one stone: Kissing up to his employer and keeping his lawn green in the midst of a drought.
I spend a lot of time keeping my grass looking good, and Tim`s bright idea smacks of cheating. But I guess desperate times call for desperate measures, and what are you going to do when there`s a ban on watering your lawn and garden?
My pooch Mandy has a penchant for munching on grass, it probably won`t do her any good to eat painted grass.
Tim can do whatever he wants, but Mandy and I prefer natural grass even if it gets a little bit brown during dry periods.
