One important thing that can be done now to prepare your lawn to be painted is to seed and repair dead spots. Many of the lawns Keepin It Green painted throughout the bay area were starting to experience dead spots throughout the lawns. If you use a gardening service this is as simple as requesting the seed these areas now. Although the seed will likely not grow much now with the colder weather when the warmer El Nino rain comes the seed should begin to grow and fill in the dead or bar spots in the lawn. If you do not use a gardening service this can easily be done yourself.
First prepare the dead, bare, or sparse spots of the lawn by lightly raking to loosen soil. Then spread seeds in intended areas and apply heavier in the bare spots. Then lightly cover with potting soil to protect seeds from washing away or being blown away by wind.
This can be done a few times throughout the winter and spring to bring your lawn back to a healthy condition. Although you will have to cut back on water again during the summer and the lawn will go dormant or turn brown again this will allow for the most amount of grass for Keepin It Green to paint or color green. Although bare spots are well hidden when painting the lawn green Keepin It Green sees the best result when there is more grass even if it is dormant or brown.
