There are some companies that do this out here "24k Green" is one.  I laughed when I first saw this.  It's supposed to be bio friendly, so grass could grow back.

I'll still put down seed or sod.  Dead grass breaks off, live grass looks nicer.

I saw it done on TV & thought it was hokey. It looked ok but don't know enough about it to really give any advice.

This would require in-depth research on the lawn growing back AND the impact on the environment.

If it is a low to medium priced home, there are many cheap remedies to present them by this be one of them. It comes across as a trick of some sort.

I have heard of it, never seen but may need it. We in NH are experiencing drough which is rare for us. Most often the ocean provides ample storms to keep things normal. We have an extreme drought with water bans in most towns now.

I have not painted a lawn - I think they do grow back - I remember someone painting zoyzia grass but I would think with water at a premium if you are having a dry period buyers would understand.
