‘Paint’ your lawn this Winter!

How can I keep my lawn green in Winter you ask? Grass colourant may be the product for you!

Coming into the cooler weather, you may notice discolouration in some lawn varieties. This is common, due to some varieties such as Kikuyu and Couch going into varying levels of dormancy. 


Although it sounds crazy, have you ever considered ‘painting’ your lawn? No, we don’t mean that by grabbing a can of spray paint out of your shed, we’re talking about Lawn Solution’s Colourguard Plus! While it may not quite be painting your lawn, it has much of the same effect. 

What is Colourguard Plus? 

Colourguard Plus is an organically derived pigment, which when applied absorbs into the leaf giving your lawn a lush green colour. This means it won’t rub off, wash off or stain clothing. It’s safe to use with pets & children, so suitable to all home environments. Not only will it enhance the colour of your lawn, it contains fertiliser so it’s more than just a cosmetic fix!

 Although it sounds uncommon, you’d be surprised how popular this product is. Golf courses use it, sports fields & turf farms use it – we even use it here on farm at Sunnyside.

Trials performed on farm proved that Colourguard Plus increased leaf temperatures by up to 3°C, encouraging plant growth & a healthier lawn. 

It can make a world of difference in the appearance of your lawn & has many known benefits, such as:

  • Prevents frost damage (by raising ground temperatures)
  • Fertilises your lawn
  • Instantly enhances lawn colour for up to 3 months. 
  • Easy to apply
  • Safe around children & pets
  • 100% eco- friendly & non toxic
  • Increases leaf temperature by up to 3C


Colourguard Plus is available in 3 convenient sizes:

  • 2L Ready to use
  • 100ml Concentrate
  • 2.5L Concentrate

How do I apply Colourguard Plus?

Keep an eye on the weather forecast, you’ll need to apply when your lawn is dry, and there is no rain forecasted. 

Work from one side of your lawn to the other, applying evenly. Be sure to clean any paths, concrete or borders immediately if there is any overspray, to avoid staining. 

After 24hours, hose off your lawn to remove any residue. Be sure to keep pets & children off your lawn until dry to prevent any transfer, otherwise it might not just be your lawn that’s green!


Sounds to good to be true, right? If you have any questions, be sure to contact our friendly team.

We chose Sir Walter Buffalo that has an intense green colour and its softness suits our children playing outside. It was a pleasure working with Sunnyside and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering any instant lawn option.

    A house just isn't a home without lawn, right from my first enquiry with Sunnyside I can not fault their service. I was going to lay the turf myself but at late notice I engaged them to lay it as well. I am so impressed with my Kikuyu lawn and the way it has been installed, it's perfectly finished our new house. The only thing smiling more than us is our dog!

    I am so happy with my Sir Walter Buffalo, it is green, lush and beautiful and has added so much value to my house. I was more than satisfied with the customer service provided by Sheridan & Andrew. I was very impressed with the follow up phone call I received and felt Sunnyside Instant Lawn not only provided me with great turf but they provided me with a very personal, wonderful service.

    Margie Donnellan | Whyalla, SA

    The quality and condition of the Sir Walter DNA you delivered to Blair Athol was exceptional, best turf I have ever laid. Thank you so much.

    My client came home at lunchtime yesterday to check it out. She was so happy and excited, she couldn’t stop crying. It was the first time in her 45 year life that she had ever had lawn in her own home. Hard to imagine that, life without a lawn.

    Nick Kilvington | Director | Blair Athol

    We couldn’t be more happy with the service and the end result. The Turf Guy, (Jamie) was very accommodating in meeting the needs of our centre and scheduled a time to do the work on a Saturday, ensuring the safety of the children and the families. Lots of families have commented on how amazing the lawn looks…

    We are very happy with our RTF Tall Fescue Lawn supplied and laid by Sunnyside Instant Lawn. The advice from Andrew & Sheridan was very professional and we would certainly recommend them.

    Rob & Trish Martlew | Bordertown

    Delivery was great! The driver called before hand and was very careful with machinery on the driveway. Turf was in amazing condition when it arrived and the size of the slabs made it super easy to install. 

    Shane | Colonel Light Gardens

    Sunnyside Instant Lawn recently supplied and line planted approximately 15,000 square metres of turf at the Bordertown Racing Club. During this project, I found Andrew and his team to be very proficient. All work was carried out on time, offering good advice regarding the proper care required to get the grass up and going, they also followed up the progress of the turf after it was planted.

    Sonya Lodewyk | Bordertown, SA

    I love my new lawns! I was so impressed with the team's obvious knowledge and thorough manner. They advised the most suited turf type for this area's soil and climate. Their prices were very competitive and they had my windswept wasteland looking verdant and established in the space of a day! The team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn were, at all times, helpful, timely and professional.
