A healthy lawn isn’t only attractive, they also provide our households with a number of environmental benefits.
LAWNS KEEP YOUR HOME COOLER
On a hot day stand in the garden and then stand on the lawn; you will notice the cooling effect of your lawn. It has been estimated that the cooling effect of an average size lawn is equal to about 9 tons of air conditioning.
SAFER FOR YOUR FAMILY
Athletic and playing fields covered with natural turf have been proven to be safer than artificial turfs. This is due to their softer and more natural texture cushioning falls and providing a safer surface than the harsh materials of astroturf.
LAWNS ADD OXYGEN TO THE ATMOSPHERE
Like any plant, grass absorbs carbon dioxide and release oxygen. The average yard of turf absorbs carbon dioxide, capturing carbon and reducing our greatest greenhouse gas and produces enough oxygen for a family of 4.
Cleaner runoff into our creeks and rivers
Lawn have a natural ability to cleanse water. By running through lawns, the grass filters the pollutants from rainwater so that a cleaner form of water runs through into our creeks and rivers.
Lawns clean the air that we breathe
Similar to its ability of filtering water, grass has a natural gift for cleansing the air we breathe. Turf traps much of the estimated tons of dust, pollen and dirt released annually into the atmosphere.
Keeps the topsoil in place
Up to 90% of the weight of grass is found in its roots, making it weight for holding down the topsoil. As it covers and anchors the topsoil, lawns have proven very efficient in stabilising soil and preventing erosion.
Lawns do not harm the environment
Artificial turf is a contributing cause of harm to the environment due to run-off and chemicals leached out of the infill. However, natural turf is a living plant that contributes and adds to the environment.
The Ideal Erosion Control Solution
