Curb Appeal - Are you "spray painting" the front lawn?

By
Title Insurance with Nevada State Title Escrow Officer Lic#65175

Okay, the home across the street went up for sale yesterday. That may not be much of a surprise to you. Yesterday the Realtor put a yard sign in his yard (on a holiday) which also might not surprise you, but this might! This morning, the brown lawn he has had for a year had been spray painted (I'd rather think it was fertilized) a fantastic green color!  When Realtors discuss with their clients the topic of "curb appeal" is this often covered?

I thought that was brilliant!

I'm not so sure about that...I know we occasionally have the "fake" lawn...during the summer you almost can't tell the difference, but considering that brown is the color that rules for the majority of the year - the different appearance to neighboring lawns can be quite shocking...

I have never even thought about spray painting the lawn a beautiful shade of green.  It sounds like a good idea, but wouldn't it fade and start looking like fake flowers do after a few weeks in the weather?  Not too sure that I'd want to repaint every couple of weeks.

I can see using turf paint on a small brown patch here and there, but the whole lawn seems to be overkill. Buyers might actually be turned off by this technique. If they are trying that hard to hide a brown lawn, what else are they hiding?
