Will watering brown grass make it green?

It's natural for grass to go dormant to conserve water during periods of limited rainfall, and drought-induced brown grass should turn green on its own as the weather cools and rainfall increases. You can also restore your lawn by giving it an inch of water on a weekly basis with your lawn sprinkler.

Does painting grass kill it?

The answer is: No! Obviously if you completely saturate every single blade of grass with spray paint, on both sides and all the way down to the soil, you will block the grass's ability to soak up sunlight, and that could harm it. But a light dusting of spray paint won't hurt it at all!

Does grass seed expire or go bad?

Grass seed often has an expiration date stamped on the bag and can go bad over time, so its best to throw away any unused grass seed that is past its date. As grass seed ages the percentage of seeds that will be able to germinate decreases, forcing you to use more seed than normal to get adequate coverage.
