How Long Does Grass Paint Last?

Based on our years of experience painting lawns, we have come to the conclusion that lawn paint lasts about 2-3 months in most cases and this is confirmed by paint manufactures like LawnLift. That being said, it can last up to 6 months given the right factors. These factors include: the condition of the lawn, how fast your lawn grows, the type of grass, how the paint was applied, the local weather, how often your lawn gets walked on, etc. That being said, we find that all of the grass paints that we use for our clients last about the same amount of time. We also find that watering painted grass or rain doesn’t really wash away the grass paint. That being said, it can cause the grass to grow which changes how the paint job will look. For example, let’s say that your grass grows and you mow away the dyed part of the grass. In that case your lawn will obviously no longer be painted.

What Are The Ideal Conditions for Grass Paint?

The ideal conditions for grass paint is a dry climate where the lawn is dormant but still pliable (not crunchy). In those conditions the lawn paint could last up to 6 months.

How to Apply Grass Paint Properly so That it Last Longer

If the paint was not applied properly it will not last as long. More specifically, it’s important to have the right paint to water ratio. If you add too much water to the mix, the lawn paint won’t have enough binder to stick the blades of grass.


While lawn paint lasts about 2-3 months on average, it can last longer if the paint is applied properly and the conditions are optimal. When we paint lawns for our clients we make sure to apply it in the proper way to make it last as long as possible. Get a free lawn painting quote now!
