Woodland Scenics Weeds Fine Turf
Posted by reasearchhound on Wednesday, March 1, 2023 4:03 PM

Curious about the approximate color of the Weeds Fine Turf product. I have used their blended green fine turf, but it is a bit on the light side. Is the weed mix any darker? Some of the photos of the blended fine green turf show a really dark color - but that isn't what the actual product looks like. Just hoping what I see in the photos of the Weed Fine Turf is fairly accurate.

 

Thanks,

RH

I usually apply the various colours of ground cover at random, and often do the same when making trees...

 

......and if I don't like it, it's easy enough to go back over it with a re-do.

 

I tend to do the same with trees, but if you want darker colours, you could probably try altering small quantities of it using water-based acrylic paints....simply dump some of the ground cover into a suitable container, then add some paint, then spread it out to dry. 
Another option would be to apply the ground cover of your choice,then airbrush it randomly using the water-based acrylics available at most Dollar Stores.

"Weeds" is just a darker green color.

I use Woodland Scenics blended turf as a base, then add assorted other colors, including weeds, to add variety to the landscape.

There are lots of greens in nature. Using a variety makes me happy.
