Common questions about applying ColourGuard Plus

  • Is ColourGuard Plus safe to use on all lawn types? Yes, ColourGuard is safe to use on all lawn types!
  • Is ColourGuard Plus safe to use around pets? Yes, it is safe to use around pets. However, we recommend keeping pets off the lawn for a few hours to ensure the pigment has properly dried and absorbed into the leaf. After the pigment has been absorbed, we also recommend watering the lawn to wash off any excess product the grass hasn’t absorbed.
  • Can ColourGuard Plus be used year-round? Yes, it can be applied at any time throughout the year.
  • How long will the pigment last on the lawn for? Once applied, the pigment is locked into the leaf. Therefore, the pigment will be removed with the leaf when the lawn is mown.
  • What can I do if I apply the ColourGuard to another surface? If you apply the pigment to another surface, it is best to wash it off immediately with water to avoid staining.
  • Will ColourGuard Plus work on dead grass? As this product needs to be absorbed into the leaf of the grass, it will work best on a lawn that is healthy. If applied to a dead lawn, the grass won’t be able to absorb the pigment. It may still give it a slight green up; however, it won’t work as effectively when applied to healthy grass.


Use a general purpose window or floor cleaner. If concrete or brick, use a hydrochloric acid based cleaner – Be sure to follow label rates and instructions to avoid damaging grout or concrete when using these products.

If you have a stain on tiles, this can be treated with lemon juice.

Due to the porous nature of some hard surfaces, some stains may not be removable, but will hopefully fade with time.
