You, too, can achieve this effect on your own yard.

These babies will make sure that you have a beautiful striped effect, but if you just want to go for the bright green of nitrogen fertilizer, without flowers anywhere, may I recommend …


And only $37.99 plus 12% tax, batteries included. Bonus, no mosquito-sting-healing plantain either. You’ll be ready for your de-natured planet in the squeeze of a magic wand.
