Defend The Winter Elements & Keep Your Winter Lawn Colour Green

Defend The Winter Elements & Keep Your Winter Lawn Colour

Helping your lawns winter colour can be a difficult task as lawn varieties can naturally lose colour. So how can you keep your lawn looking turftastic all year-round? How can you bring your backyard up to standard for an upcoming home sale? We have the answers.


With less sunlight and energy during winter, turf growth rates and the amount of chlorophyll produced reduces. Chlorophyll is where the green pigment within turf originates from so with reduced levels, your turf naturally loses its colour.

Once winter is over, turf’s natural colour returns.

Please note, if where you are located is affected by frosty conditions, your lawn colour can be affected.



While some homeowners are happy to wait till spring and watch their lawn come back to life, if you have a special event or are selling your home you will need a quick fix.
Thankfully we have a winter lawn colour solution available via our online shop that will instantly turn your turf green. This allows your home to look its best, no matter what your occasion.
The product is called ColourGuard PLUS and is an easy to apply natural plant-based green pigment. The benefits of this product are:

  • It is 100% safe for the environment.
  • There is no harm to persons or pets.
  • The product is 100% organic.
  • The results are instant.


ColourGuard PLUS can be purchased in a 2L ready to use bottle that you simply attach to your hose and spray evenly on your turf.

If you accidentally apply ColourGuard PLUS to a hard surface, such as your driveway, you can easily wash the product off with water.

This product is not a lawn paint, but a permanent green pigment that once dry, won’t wash off with rain or water. ColourGuard PLUS is also UV fade resistant and will not transfer onto clothing or pets once it has been absorbed into the turf.

Please ensure you allow at least two full hours in direct sunlight to allow ColourGuard PLUS to dry.

The pigment will only disappear from your turf when mowed. With the slower growth rate of winter, this means your lawn will keep its new colour even longer and less applications are required.


All year lawn maintenance is required to keep your lawn weed-free, pest-free and growing to the best of its ability.
