Determining which shade of Endurant Turf Colorant is best can be a matter of personal preference and grass type. Users will have preferences toward specific shades and generally select the shade that coordinates best with their natural turfgrass color.
Many turfgrass professionals choose to apply Endurant turf colorants in a two-coat method. If spraying Endurant in two directions, let the first pass dry for about 15-20 minutes. Allow even more time if possible. Then, apply the second coat perpendicular to the first coast. This wait time will reduce the chances for tire marks, footprints, etc.
Yes. Less streaking and overall better coverage of the leaf blade will occur if sprayed in two directions. For more on this two-coat method, see a related FAQ. How Long Should You Wait to Apply a Second Coat If Spraying Endurant in Two Directions?
After applying Endurant turfgrass colorants it's recommended to keep off the grass to allow it to dry. How long this takes can vary. It is recommended to allow grass paint to dry for two hours for light home lawn use. For golf, remain off the grass for three to four hours. When it comes to keeping rain off the grass, try to let grass paint dry for 8 to 24 hours before a heavy rain, if possible.
Mixing Endurant with other chemicals is generally safe. However, it is important to contact the supplier of the products and/or perform a jar test. Consider too where you want the other products to end up. Endurant turf colorants need to remain on the leaf blade for optimal results. Do not water-in Endurant landscape colorants. Instead, Endurant needs to dry fully on the leaf blade or the surface of plants, trees, mulch or whatever is being colored. So, any products mixed with Endurant should probably be a foliar. In conclusion, mixing Endurant with other chemicals is often safe, but jar tests, checking with manufacturers and following all application instructions is important when using any chemical or material.
Will weather affect Endurant? Minimally. Once colorants are dried and cured, weather has minimal affects on Endurant turf colorants. You may apply Endurant turf colorants when frost, dew or a very small amount of moisture is on the grass blades. This may actually increase uniformity of color application. But it is not necessary. If a heavy rain were to come prior to Endurant drying, that could cause the paint to wash off. Generally, just allow grass to dry for 8 hours before a rain and up to 24 hours before a heavy rain. Endurant is dry to the touch in most cases within an hour.
Endurant Turf Colorants are safe on equipment and pumps. We recommend cleaning directly after use. If equipment is not cleaned directly after use, there is a risk of clogging spray nozzles with dried paint. So, rinse turf equipment with water directly after use and do not store equipment with the paint inside. If you have a tough stain on equipment use Endurant Pigment Cleaner, available on Geoponics online store, as well as through Amazon and our distributors.
Endurant turf colorant will generally last about 6-8 weeks. When applied to dormant turf it lasts longer than when applied to actively growing turf because colorant is mowed off.

Application rates may vary based upon the depth of shade users desire. The best Endurant application rate is also listed on the container for home users and professionals. Apply more for a deeper result if desired, but do not mix at a rate that is overly diluted. Maintain the 15:1, water to Endurant, mix rate.
