OGDEN, Utah (Fox 32 News) - A Utah man decided to paint his yard green to comply with rules that require a green lawn.

Michael Golden says Ogden city officials warned him about his dirt patch. So he bought $70 worth of green lawn paint and used that instead, according to Fox 59 News.

No word yet if city officials will accept his "green" lawn as a substitute for actual grass.
