Benefits of Healthy Lawns
Turf grass serve as a natural air conditioner. The grass of eight average front lawns have the cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioning, roughly equal to 16 average homes.
Turf grass trap dust and smoke particles and act as an air filter.
Grass and their extensive root systems hold the soil and prevent the rain drops from disturbing the soil, helping to reduce runoff and reduce the amount of water the municipal drain systems have to handle.
Turf areas can reduce noise levels by 8 to 10 decibels.
Grasses slow water movement and help to clean and protect surface water.
Grass plants capture and use greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen. A 50 by 50 foot lawn can produce enough oxygen for a family of 4 to breathe for 1 year. Turf acts as a barrier to chemicals and other pollutants in our environment.
