    I am starting to plan out for this christmas and I want to make it look like it has been snowing. I don't want to top dress with white sand because my lawn has been top dressed too many times already and kinda bulges, and I live in Perth so soil quality is already an issue that would only be made worse with white sand.


    What painting options do I have (I am happy to reapply a couple of times). If I was to just get some regular old ceiling white paint, would it kill my lawn? I figure water based paint is out because it will run when I water my lawn.




    apologies if not appropriate for this board.

    paint of anytype will kill your lawn there is some magic snow but its not cheap and will kill your lawn cause if you want to re use it daily you need to keep it clean and re wet it

    You could try chalk powder which I think is used to mark lines on football fields.

    I can still think of a few small disadvantages though;
    it's messy
    it might wash away
    it's probably not good to breathe it in
    it will raise the pH of the soil

    I am not sure how well the colour of the lawn will show up at night.

    Dam looks like there is no options really...I don't want to reapply everyday, maybe once a week.

    Might have to be white sand.
