SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The drought has many in California worried, but for a West Sacramento lawn painter, the water shortage has brought a boom in business.

KXTV reports (https://on.news10.net/1Lb71ni) that David Bartlett paints lawns green through his business Xtreme Green Grass and says he’s taking more orders now than ever before.

Bartlett says he and his team can turn a lawn green in about an hour, using an all-natural dye that won’t hurt people or pets.

He charges 25 cents per square foot, adding up to $250 for a 1,000 square foot yard.

It’s less expensive than re-landscaping a yard with drought-friendly plants.
