Temperature may affect Endurant Turf Paint if the product freezes. It's important to avoid letting the packages freeze. It's also important to apply Endurant on a day that the temperature will eventually reach 40 degrees F or warmer.
Use any of the Endurant Turf Colorants to paint grass. First, choose the color in the Endurant line that you like most. Therefore, you can get best results having used a colorant made for your grass type and species, best matching its natural shade.
Endurant Turf Colorants, including the pigments and the paints, do not adversely affect the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process of the plant absorbing sunlight, water and carbon dioxide, creating energy and oxygen.
One of the more technical questions asked of Geoponics is which nozzles to use for applying Endurant Turf Colorants. This question is relevant when using very large sprayers common in golf, agriculture and turf.
One brand we recommend is GreenLeaf. And the models that provide the best even coverage of the entire leaf blade, front and back, are the Asymmetric DualFan Nozzles, including D04, D05, D06, D08, D10.
"This is by far our most popular nozzle for the golf course market," says Will Smart, owner of GreenLeaf.
Endurant Turf Colorants and Landscape Colorants are safe for pets, and others, to walk on once Endurant colorants are dry. This usually takes about an hour, but may be longer if humid or in low temperatures, less than 50 degrees F.
Most people do not paint grass if they're going to mow it off. In fact, most people add color to grass because it is brown, dormant, drought-stricken and/ or not growing. Or, it may be growing some, but is semi-dormant. Therefore, most people are not mowing the lawn after painting grass.
Typically one gallon of Endurant, particularly one of the ultra concentrates, will cover 5,000 to 7,000 square feet of dormant grass. The ultra concentrates in the Endurant line include Endurant Fairway, Endurant Premium and Endurant Perennial Rye. As the labels for these colorants suggest, one gallon can cover up to 10,000 square feet. This is the case when grass still has some chlorophyll, is kept at a short height and is applied optimally. Optimal application includes using recommended mix rates, applying with efficient equipment and using the best nozzles (when applicable).

Geoponics recommends using the Endurant Wheel Sprayer for applying Endurant Turf Colorants. This works very well for applying grass paint and creating clean lines and edges quickly. For this reason, the spray wheel is sometimes called an edging wheel or wheel sprayer.
So, you've already decided to launch your own lawn painting business, but now you want to know how much to charge.
The U.S. national average for lawn painting ranges from 7 cents to 15 cents per square foot. The majority fall in the range of 10 to 11 cents per square foot. One factor in deciding what to charge is considering how much time you will likely take to do the job. Labor and the cost of living in the area the service is provided are among the top factors contributing to expense. Therefor, the charges for a thriving lawn painting business will depend on these factors.
There are a couple ways to answer this question. There is product cost through our online store or our distributors. then, there is the cost of application. For the DIYer, the cost is a matter of your own labor, the purchase price of Endurant, and a sprayer. For the professional who paints lawns as a business, there may be a little more involved.
