    How long will the field marking paint last?

    Hmm, I think I have the perfect place for it, two actually -- on the slight grade at the top of the front lawn, or on the more open side lawn.  I'd have to test to see which is more visible from the street.

    Wonder if I can get the curve right.  I wanna do this.

    How big, do you think, to be effective?

      It is non-toxic so you won't have a dead circle when you are done.

      The curve is easy once you get the outside circumfrence. I just used yarn, one circumfrence, role it around the can, second circumfrence--3 circumfrences white, six 60% around blue, then that one red swirl.

      I made the radius six feet--12 feet across. My inner white is a bit light, but was too cheap to start a new can as a neighbor is going to do one.

      Only 5 bucks a can. Don't use toxic paint--you'll have a pretty dead lawn next week.

      Steal that, Sucker!

        A stake in the middle, nail in the top with the yarn tied to it should work for the outside radius.  Is yours on a slope?  How does it look from the street?

        Okay, I'm going to talk to the kids and see if they want to do a project today.  I think I know what the answer will be ;)

          Didn't want red or blue feet, started from the top.
          As a result, it looks a lot better from the street side than the house, but of course no need to saturate the roots since grass grows from the bottom.

          Good luck. Lots of weird looks from my Fundy neighbors.
