Did you know that by keeping your lawn and trees healthy, you contribute directly to the overall health of our environment? It is more than just having a beautiful green lawn to enjoy and relax in, it is also about sustaining the environment that surrounds all of us. Some key benefits include managing the air quality we breathe – lawns alone capture more than 12 million tons of dust particles (Source: Georgie Turfgrass Foundation). Also, when your lawn is healthy and vibrant, they also help prevent puddles of water forming by absorbing the various water runoffs from sprinklers, rain and any other moisture that if the lawn wasn’t there, could pool into bodies of water around the property. Maintained lawns can absorb more than 6,000 gallons of water from a single rainfall (Source: Journal of Environmental Quality). In addition to the air quality, the grass on all our lawns creates and provides oxygen – a 50’x50’ lawn can produce enough oxygen to support a family of four.
So when you think about whether or not to invest in the care of your lawn, keep in mind that there are other benefits that come with a beautiful, healthy and green lawn. It is more than just watering and mowing the grass and the plants, it is making sure you are providing enough fertilizer, you are combating the weeds and insects that can damage the plants, as well as have preventative treatments in place.
