Indianapolis, IN (CBS/WISH) -- The grass is always greener if you have plenty of paint.
That's the feeling of an Indianapolis man who's managed to keep his lawn looking lush and green despite a watering ban.
Timothy Birdwell says he and a friend got a bright idea to liven up his dead yard. After thinking it over for about two weeks, he coated the lawn with yard paint. He says, "If it rains, the grass just grows. And, at that point you know, you're still not going to have dead spots."
Birdwell works for a local company called Imperial Painting. He says the paint he chose is made for grass so it won't damage his lawn any more than the drought has.
It will last three to six months.
