Chlorophyll is a green pigment in the grass and most other plants that is responsible for capturing light to make glucose.
This pigment is what colors leaves and grass green.

That is correct!
Like many plants, most species of grass produce a bright pigment called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs blue light (high energy, short wavelengths) and red light (low energy, longer wavelengths) well, but mostly reflects green light, which accounts for your lawn's color. But chlorophyll isn't just for eye candy. It also figures importantly in See More▼

I am unsure What makes the grass green, mostly because I suck at science...But the color green does represent LIFE, rebirth, new beginnings, eternal life, stuff like that, which is interesting when you see how it returns every year almost everywhere. Not sure if this helps in anyway but there's some interesting tidbits for you.

But chlorophyll isn't just for eye candy. It also figures importantly in the process of photosynthesis, by which plants convert an inorganic material (light) into a useable, organic one (sugar).

The reason why grass is green is because it goes through a process called photosynthesis. It is when the plant turns carbon dioxide and light to glucose, water vapor, and oxygen. Every other plant that is green also goes through this process as well.

No you were talking about photosynthesis! Do you have some disease and you can't remember something that you can read whenever you post a comment here

Actually, I'm partially right. I didn't really wanted to go into detail because I was too lazy.

Mother Nature says "I want the grass to be green!". So God turned the grass to green! This a fake story.
