Default Aura...green.....my arse!

Split some Aura Exterior on my lawn. Gave it a good soaking to dilute it to no avail....hours later....stuff works better than round up.

Just spray the patch with some green paint and your problems are solved.

A little weird to me. I have been washing aura in the grass for years and I never killed it. I really think somethings else happened. It looks like a few turds from a dog or something is just to the upper right of the picture. Maybe a dog pissed there right before you showed up. Also you sure you did not dump a bucket with some thinner or something?

We don't have a dog or cat....although my 5 year old was hanging out there quite a bit yesterday....I'll talk to him.

My wife is a gardener. When I spilt it she got all, "you're going to kill the grass", I got all, "no I won't, chill...its Aura", she got all, "I don't care, you're going to kill it", I got all, "ok, I'll soak it with a hose, it'll be fine"....this morning she's all, "see, you killed the grass".....and I'm all, "WTF"?

I do like the angle of blaming it on an animal though.

In the wife's eyes your the animal today. Sometimes that could be a good thing, but no such luck with this one. Do you have a dog house?

I remember years back Atlanta had a bad drought one summer and yard watering was really restricted. I saw a guy working near downtown spray painting grass green in front of a business. He had a wand on his gun and was using a spray shield on the sidewalks.

A painter, in Canada, used Aura
Though sadly, all over his flora
It killed all the weeds
And all the grass seeds
So should be locked in a box called Pandora.

I killed it, I admit

So on PT now it sit

My wife isn't impressed with these fan-dangled paints

Doesn't believe they are gifts from saints

So my angle is that its from a big dog sh1t.
