What is ColourGuard Plus?

Why use ColourGuard Plus?

Then again, maybe you just want to maintain the best possible lawn appearance for your own benefit – after all, there’s nothing better than being surrounded by the fresh green colour of a vibrant lawn.


Benefits of ColourGuard Plus

Using ColourGuard Plus lawn paint offers several benefits that can transform the appearance and maintenance of your lawn. Here are some key advantages:

  • Instantly restores the natural green colour of grass
  • Helps protect your grass from frost
  • Stays green during droughts and water restrictions
  • UV fade resistant
  • Won’t bleed, run, or stain once absorbed into the grass
  • Safe for the environment, pets, and people
  • Organic and natural – no harmful chemicals
  • Reduces the amount of fertiliser and water used on lawns

Overall, ColourGuard Plus pigmented fertiliser offers immediate results, long-lasting colour, water savings, coverage for imperfections, safety, and ease of use. By using this innovative grass painting product, you can enjoy stunning green grass all year round, effortlessly enhancing your outdoor space.


How to use ColourGuard Plus

  1. Time your application when you know no rain has been forecast for the following couple of days.
  2. Put on gloves, and ensure you have a watering can with water put to the side, in case you ColourGuard any driveways or decks. It is very important this is washed off straight away.
  3. Mix 100 mL of concentrate into a sprayer as per the bottle instructions, or attach your hose to the 2-litre ready-to-use bottle.
  4. We recommend that if using the 2L hose attachment, you gain assistance from a second person to turn the tap on and off for you. This will ensure you maintain control over the ColourGuard at all times.
  5. Spray evenly across your lawn, working methodically from side to side.
  6. When spraying near hard surfaces like paths and driveways, stand on the surface and spray the ColourGuard Plus away from the surface onto your lawn.
  7. Leave your lawn to dry for at least a day in full sunlight, or longer if it is shady. It is important to ensure the ColourGuard Plus is fully dry before allowing pets on the lawn, or you may end up with green paws!


Tips for using ColourGuard Plus

  • Have a hose or watering can nearby when applying ColourGuard Plus so that if you do accidentally spray onto a hard surface, you can simply wash the spray off into the lawn.
  • You can mow your lawn after the ColourGuard Plus has dried – just don’t set the mower too low and scalp your lawn.
  • ColourGuard Plus is a permanent colourant that will only disappear as grass leaves grow.
  • Don’t worry if it rains – ColourGuard Plus does not wash off once it has dried.
