LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Homeowners in Los Angeles found a unique way to keep their lawns green without using extra water by painting their lawns green.
Residents such as Kerri McCoy say it's a way for people to keep their grass looking good while avoiding any fines and also keeping their water bills down.
"As soon as the water sanctions hit and as soon as people find their water bills rising, they're looking for ways to cut back on their expenses and that's when they start calling," he said.
The coat of dye on the lawn is expected to last three months before another coat is needed. But many are hoping the grass will turn green again once the rain and winter months return.
