This California Lawn Painter Makes 'Every Game a Home Game'

California man will spray paint a football logo on your front lawn.

— -- A California resident is giving football fans a creative way to cheer on their favorite team: through painted lawn logos.

“The next thing I knew people started asking who did it and how much it cost,” Phillips said.

The logos range in price depending on the difficulty of the logo and can take from 40 to 90 minutes, lasting about eight weeks.

“Something simple like the 49ers or Saints is $200. Something difficult like the Raiders, Patriots or Buccaneers, I’ll go up to $250 or $300,” Phillips said.

Because the logos are “free hand” with “no stencil or template,” Phillips said he has not had to worry about trademark violation.

Although he sees the most activity in his business during football season, he has painted logos for other occasions, like graduations and birthday parties, and has painted lawns all over Louisiana, Northern California, and, most recently, Southern California, he said.

“I would have to say, for our neighborhood, it brings out a little more character,” Chenault said, adding that through her logo she has met neighbors she never knew before.

Phillips, who said he has gained clientele simply through word of mouth, and Chenault both credit the logos with bringing people together and creating fun rivalries.

“The main thing I think they do is they make every game a home game,” Phillips added. “You don’t want to leave your house if you have a logo. You want to invite people over and have a party.”
