Winter turf prep: Overseed, colorant or hybrid

It’s about time to consider the fall turfgrass plan for winter management. Are you planning to overseed, apply colorant or considering a combination of the two?

Very few golf course superintendents choose to overseed anymore and if they do, they apply colorant as well– especially on the east coast of the United States.

Lawn paint: Why paint grass?

Lawn paint provides green grass in any season. Drought, temperature extremes, such as too much heat or too much cold, along with seasonal dormancy, may be leading to brown, dry or patchy looking grass. Endurant lawn paint is the solution that is easy, economical and environmentally responsible.

Endurant lawn paint turns even the brownest grass to lively, natural green grass without overwatering, over-fertilizing or using harsh chemicals.

Endurant lawn paint: why green grass paint is popular

Why lawn paint?

Some of the top reasons for choosing to buy lawn paint are aesthetics, economics, environmentalism and agronomics.

Aesthetics

Endurant lawn paint provides the best, most natural looking green grass colorant. Endurant lawn paint is long lasting with the colorant lasting up to three months depending upon how fast the grass is growing and how frequently it is mowed.

The aesthetic appeal of using Endurant lawn paint includes adding curb appeal to properties that are listed for sale. Simply choosing to buy lawn paint to rid the property of brown, patchy grass has been shown to increase curb appeal, decrease the amount of time a property remains listed for sale on the real estate market and increases the purchase price.

Endurant lawn paint has long been used by turfgrass professionals because of its superior natural look. Endurant’s aesthetic appeal has led to Endurant being the choice professionals and homeowners make when beautiful green grass is important. Endurant is the go-to brand when being applied to golf courses just before events that draw millions of TV viewers and the world’s most famous golf professionals. Endurant is the choice for use on common areas and grass in advance of social events, including weddings and parties. Endurant is the choice for people who choose to enjoy their lawns, whether for a home BBQ or any day of the week.

Unlike other lawn paint brands, Endurant lawn paint does not fade to a fake blue tone. Endurant fades on tone, meaning even as the colorant wears off or fades due to weather, growth, mowing and other conditions over the weeks or months, the grass colorant remains natural looking.

Unsightly pet urine stains, drought-stricken lawns, dormant brown grass and other lawn challenges are quickly remedied with Endurant lawn paints. Endurant provides lush, green lawns quickly and economically.

Economics

Endurant lawn paint is less expensive than the practice of overseeding when faced with dormancy and grass turning brown to seasonal weather changes. Overseeding includes the expenses of extra mowing, extra water, seed costs, fertilizers, herbicides, other harsh chemical usage and extra work and transition problems during seasonal changes.

The concentrated blends of Endurant provide particular value to transforming even the brownest, driest lawns.

Endurant lawn paint provides green, lush lawns instantly. It is easy to apply. It is one of the least expensive ways to transform a drought-stricken brown lawn into a lush green lawn without incurring the expense of extra watering, landscape replacement or harsh chemicals.

Environmentally responsible

Endurant lawn paint is the most environmentally responsible choice when choosing to buy lawn paint. Many of the economic savings of less water, fewer chemicals and less fertilizer not only save money, but are better for the environment.

Endurant lawn paint is made with organic pigments combined with binders for excellent adherence to turfgrass. As the lawn paint lasts up to three months, it provides fast and lasting green grass without using common old practices of over-watering, over-seeding, over-fertilizing and over-reliance on harsh chemicals to provide and maintain a beautiful green lawn.

Agronomics

Turfgrass professionals care about the health of their turf. Endurant is the preferred lawn paint brand among turf grass professionals, such as golf course superintendents, sod growers and landscape professionals, because using Endurant lawn paint has agronomic benefits, leading to improved turfgrass health.

By choosing Endurant lawn paint instead of overseed the turfgrass does not compete with the overseed turf species, which causes seasonal transition related problems and the frequent use of herbicides in an attempt to kill off the overseed after the season. Overseed also poses other agronomic challenges that do not occur when choosing Endurant lawn paint.

Also, when choosing Endurant lawn paint for use during winter dormancy, the darker turfgrass color mildly increases the temperature and therefor leads to faster green-up of the turfgrass in the spring.
