INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - At least one Indianapolis lawn is bright green, despite the dry weather and watering ban — but the homeowner hasn’t been watering his lawn.
Timothy Birdwell was fed up with his grass being brown. He and a friend came up with the idea to paint his lawn.
Birdwell works for a local company called Imperial Painting. He said the paint he chose is made for grass, so it will not damage his lawn any more than the drought has.
"If it rains, the grass just grows,” Birdwell said. “At that point, you can go out there and touch it up if need be. You can have that kind of yard all year round with no water bill from watering your yard."
Birdwell said the paint will last three to six months.
